The Activist Mommy, a Christian homeschooling mother of 10, is butthurt about an anal sex advice article appearing in Teen Vogue.
Elizabeth Johnston, aka The Activist Mommy, released a Facebook video earlier this week condemning Teen Vogue for offering a sex education article on anal sex. In her video, an angry Johnston burns an issue of Teen Vogue while encouraging others to boycott the magazine.
In the video, which has been viewed over 2.9 million times, Johnson asks viewers to join her in her campaign to have the publication removed from “your local gas stations, your local libraries and your local grocery stores.”
Clearly Johnston is angry, but is her anger justified?
In the Teen Vogue article in question, “Anal Sex: What You Need To Know,” sex educator and feminist activist Gigi Engle gives readers the facts about anal sex in a non-judgmental and educational context, answering questions that many may have, but are uncomfortable talking about or asking. The article begins:
In short, the article is a straightforward and honest account of the ins and outs of anal intercourse, and good information for the curious.
When it comes to your body, it’s important that you have the facts. Being in the dark is not doing your sexual health or self-understanding any favors.
With that sentiment in mind, we’re here to lay it all out for you when it comes to anal sex.
However, the article makes Johnston furious. In her video the angry activist mommy declares:
Teen Vogue is garbage. The editors minds are in the garbage. The author’s minds are in the garbage. Don’t let your kids read garbage.
There is a particular irony in Johnston’s outrage, given the urban legend confirmed by anecdotal evidence that many “good Christian women” engage in anal sex to protect their vaginal virginity – aka The Loophole:
Bottomline: The Activist Mommy is a magazine burning, attention seeking clown – another ignorant religious extremist willing to deny sex education advice to others in order to promote her demented, conservative Christian, puritanical agenda.
