Hang on, cleaning up all my regurgitation… lemme get all this HAZMAT in one area…
AHEM. Okay. WHAT!?
“Rapper and actor T.I. said in a podcast interview that aired Tuesday that he goes with his 18-year-old daughter to the gynecologist every year to “check her hymen” and make sure it’s “still intact.”
I want to ask why… but then I really don’t want to hear the details… quite frankly, he seems quite smitten to brag about this…
I understand the saying about, “Oh, when you have a boy you only have to worry about one penis, but when you have a girl, you have to worry about all the penises.”
But good gravy, sir.
Does he not realize that even a tampon can mess with that?
…should I even be asking him questions about common sense?
“In an interview with Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham on Ladies Like Us, T.I. talked about his parenting style, among other topics. When asked about whether he’s had the “sex talk” with his daughters, he pointed to his approach with his eldest daughter, 18-year-old Deyjah Harris, who’s in her first year of college.”
“Not only have we had the conversation. We have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen,” T.I. said. “Yes, I go with her.”
Okay, so now I’m wondering… since she’s 18, does she realize she can decline him from having access to her medical records? As well as declining to have him JOIN HER.
I can’t even remember the last time I informed my own mother about when I had an appointment to get my golly checked.
“T.I. also noted that he was informed the hymen can be broken in ways other than through sexual penetration. “And so then they come and say, ‘Well, I just want you to know that there are other ways besides sex that the hymen can be broken like bike riding, athletics, horseback riding, and just other forms of athletic physical activity,'” he said. “So I say, ‘Look, Doc, she don’t ride no horses, she don’t ride no bike, she don’t play no sports. Just check the hymen, please, and give me back my results expeditiously.'”
Oh, good. So he IS aware …and it doesn’t make me feel any better about it.
Furthermore, the hymen isn’t a freaking lid or a slab of saran wrap!
You know what else could break the hymen? The virginity test.
How about he focuses more on being the significant male role model she needs in her life to know what respect and unconditional love looks like so she is statistically less likely to throw hotdogs down a hallway (is that PG enough?)? It’s a much cheaper, less invasive option. Just sayin’.
But I guess he’ll have to wait for the therapist to inform him and bill it out later.
