Teen Vogue could not be worse for the teen girls it targets. While they have ceased its print publication, they’re still running fast and furious with their sleazy website, teenvogue.com. No matter how many complaints, Teen Vogue keeps pushing dangerous sex advice and guides that are not only wrong for teens, they’re bad for anyone, and actually put their health at risk.
Over the summer Teen Vogue came out with a “Guide to Anal Sex” for its young readers, which brought on national outrage. Over 28,000 concerned citizens signed a petition opposing the promotion of sex acts, especially dangerous ones, to teens and tweens. Undeterred, Teen Vogue followed up that extremely dangerous behavior promotion by featuring Harvard University’s anal sex workshop: “What What In The Butt: Anal 101.”
The latest headline from Teen Vogue is, “Vibrator Pulses to the Beat of Christmas Music.” How low can they go?
It’s obvious Teen Vogue wants to indoctrinate their young readers. They admit they’ve purposely changed what used to be a fashion and makeup magazine. For the recent Teen Vogue Summit where Hilary Clinton spoke, they described their plan, to “inspire, educate–and yes, sell to–the readers of what ceased to be a traditional magazine…” Many parents assume the magazine – now a website only – is the same Teen Vogue it was years ago. Unfortunately, it’s so much worse today.
It’s crucial that parents of teens and tweens be made aware of the sleaze being thrown at their kids. Most parents want to and should be the primary source for teaching their children about healthy sexuality.
We can make our voices be heard even more loud and clear… and add to our numbers by signing a petition that will directly to the editors. We can also ask libraries – including middle and high school libraries – to stop subscribing this disgusting online magazine.
