Do you know who this is?
I bet you don’t and it probably is a good thing you don’t. But a lot of teenagers and little girls know who this is and they look up to her. This is Jamie Spears 16 year old little sister of Britney Spears, who just announced to the world that she is pregnant. Here is the story.
Now I know that teen pregnancy is not a new thing and is probably just as prevalent as it was 10, 20 years ago. But what makes this story important is that this a celebrity who directly appeals and is influential to the young girls of America. Then couple that with the fact that parental role models are in short supply, you get a powerful endorsement for the idol of casual sex.
The saddest part in the story is when Jamie Spears is asked what she thinks about premarital sex and she advises people to wait. Sad for her because she wanted better for herself, and sad for all the girls who will follow in her footsteps and settle for something less than what they could have and really deserve.
