Recently an article published by Teen Vogue magazine has many parents upset The article labeled Anal Sex: What You Need To Know How to do it the RIGHT way is written by Gigi Engle. According to her website Gigi Engle is a “writer, sex educator, speaker and feminist activist.”
In the article Gigi writes:
“It’s important that we talk about all kinds of sex because not everyone is having, or wants to have, “penis in the vagina” sex. If you do have “penis in the vagina” sex and are curious about something else, or are finding that that type of sex is not for you and you’d just like to explore other options, it’s helpful to know the facts.”
The article goes on to tell why kids, female and male, should try it. It totally encourages children to have anal sex! See for yourself here.
Gigi Engle has other disturbing articles published in Teen Vogue such as one called “Queer Sex.” In this one she writes:
“The sex queer people are having is the same as the sex you’re having. It’s just as unusual, multifaceted, and unique. Maybe everyone should stop making assumptions and just go out and have more orgasms instead. Happy Pride!”
In another article called How to Masturbate If You Have a Penis, Gigi tells young boys to try using a butt plug. She writes:
“Masturbating is not relegated solely to the penis. Your prostate is a gland just inside the anus that can feel great when stimulated. Use lube and try using your fingers or a small butt plug by inserting it into the anus. Be sure you go slowly and relax the anus before insertion.”
In another article How to Masturbate if You Have a Vagina, Gigi suggest teens buy dildos that look like beauty products.
Gigi has another article called Consent and BDSM: What You Should Know. In this one she writes:
How can you be a sexual slave to someone, and also be fully willing? How can you want to be spanked, or whipped, or punished and be down for it at the same time?
In another article labeled “How to tell you’re horny” also written by Gigi, she tells teens if they are restless or stressed out, that they’re horny. Because teens couldn’t be stressed over school or a million other things going on in their lives? I think Gigi has lost her damn mind. In the same article she says if you’re unsure of who you are, and who you want to be, then you’re horny. What teen knows exactly who they are and what they want to be? This lady is encouraging young children to have sex, and this is not ok!
“Yandy is now selling pizza emoji pasties that you can use to cover up if you’re wearing a particularly sheer top. The pepperoni (pepperonipple?) pizza pasties sell for just $8, promising a whimsical Jenner-approved look. For what it’s worth, the brand has quite the selection of pasties if pizza isn’t quite your thing.”
The website they suggest children to order from has all different types of pasties, studded, edible candies, ones that say “spank me,” marijuana leafs, “pay up” with $ signs. This is in NO WAY acceptable for children.
As if all of this isn’t bad enough, but I also think the author of the article is making money off of these sells. Notice when you click the link to the site it says “affiliate.”
These article I mentioned above aren’t the only ones inappropriate in Teen Vogue. Browse their site, and you will find multiple articles that should not be in a Teen magazine.
So what now? A woman, The Activist Mommy posted a great video to Facebook. In it she suggest everyone complain to stores that carry Teen Vogue, and ask them to pull the magazines from their shelves. I think this is a wonderful idea and think we all should follow her lead!
