Earlier today the Internet was set on fire after T.I.’s comments regarding his daughter’s virginity, specifically her hymen, went viral. Most have condemned his comments and his actions, but Planned Parenthood decided to step in with actual facts.
Many are still trying to wrap their heads around T.I. admitting that he visits the gynecologist with his 18-year-old daughter Deyjah every year, to make sure her hymen is still intact and that she’s still a virgin. His comments sparked a fierce debate that is still going on hours later and Tip still trending highly on social media.
Celebrities like Iggy Azalea and Chrissy Teigen have chimed in to check T.I. for his statements, but the most unexpected response came from Planned Parenthood—and the organization definitely didn’t hold back.
Planned Parenthood’s tweets read:
Idk who needs to hear this but virginity is a made-up social construct, and it has absolutely nothing to do with your hymen. Some people just naturally have hymens that are more open. And many other activities besides sex can stretch your hymen — like riding a bike, doing sports, or putting something in your vagina (like a tampon or finger). Once your hymen is stretched open, it can’t grow back.
And there was more:
Some people think you can tell if someone’s had sex before if their hymen is stretched open. But that’s not the case. Say it with us: YOU CAN’T TELL IF SOMEONE’S HAD SEX BY THE WAY THEIR HYMEN LOOKS OR FEELS
As of right now, T.I. has yet to respond to any of the backlash, however his daughter was caught “liking” posts commenting on how “possessive,” “out of control” and “wrong” her dad is in the situation.
Roommates, what are your thoughts on this?
