Planned Parenthood Trolls T.I. For His Creepy Comments About His Daughter’s Virginity

Rapper T.I. sent off an internet sh*tstorm yesterday when he revealed in an interview that he accompanies his 18-year-old daughter to the gynecologist to get confirmation from the doctor that her hymen is intact and that she still has her virginity. 


As many pointed out, many virgins don’t have hymens, and many people with hymens aren’t virgins, so T.I.’s pseudoscientific approach is flat-out ignorant along with being very creepy and controlling behavior to exhibit towards his adult daughter. You can add sexist to that as the rapper said, unlike his daughter, he doesn’t care that his son has sex.
 

Now the heavyweights of reproductive rights and education, Planned Parenthood, have waded into the controversy on Twitter to help set the record straight.

Without mentioning the rapper by name, Planned Parenthood not-so-subtly addressed the topic in a series of tweets that began with “Idk who needs to hear this but…”

After explaining that virginity is a social construct, PP went on to explain why hymens aren’t actually evidence of anything.

First, the organization offered some basic anatomy lessons for the class.

Then they cleared up some misinformation.

And dispelled some myths.

One more time for the people in the back.
