Some people just don't know when to stop, pull out.
 
2012-10-03 10:31:51 AM
Or put on a condom or use some sort of actual birth control.
But they do know how to milk some more fame.

Just wait for Honey Boo Boo to get on this show in about 10 or 12 years.

Why is this surprising? We already knew that they put out.
 
2012-10-03 10:39:02 AM
Since getting pregnant originally was their path to fame and fortune, no, I'm not exactly surprised they're pregnant again...

madcan34: Once again society celebrates idiocy


I think it's more than simply celebrating idiocy. These kinds of shows whitewash the consequences of pregnancy, with the overt message of "you can be famous if you get pregnant at 16" and a subtle hint of "it really wouldn't be that bad, look at how normal these people are".
 
2012-10-03 10:50:11 AM
I know there's a lot of misinformation, etc when it comes to BC and pregnancy. You would think that after the first one they would use condoms and BC.

BC should be free and plentiful, better 1 mistake than 2.

Just going by the one episode of that show that I wanted, they made the misery of their situation pretty obvious. This teenage kid got pregnant, started talking about the sacrifices she was going to make in order to make this new life as a teenage mom work. She was going to drop out of high school, work a part time job, socialize with her friends and maintain her hobbies, and go to community college to get a GED and later an associates, all the while trying to maintain a relationship with the baby's father and be a mother.

It became clear later in that episode that her relationship with the baby's father was going to disintegrate, and that she would have to find a full-time job and drop out of school completely, and she had little time left over for her hobbies or her high school friends who didn't want to hang out with someone with a screaming baby.

So, pretty miserable.

But that just may have been that one episode I watched.

Oh so this show is bad, right? I mean, rewarding the fail is bad, right?

Yet welfare is fine. We pay people to be parasites as a lifestyle for multiple generations, with queens shooting out career felons left and right. Yet you still vote for the dumbocraps?

You are the opposite of a NIMBY. You don't want 16 year old pregnant girls on TV, but you DO want the culture that fosters that behavior to be institutionalized by one political party as part of a vote-breeding program. Good job dipshiat. YOU are the problem.

Not to say that the relationship problems and social struggles aren't real, but the financial stuff on that show is completely bullshiat. The mothers on the show make around $65k per season. That's for each parent, btw. And I assume the other people (grandparents, friends, etc.) also make at least $20k for appearing on the show. Sure, it's only for one (or maybe two?) years, but it's enough to maintain the decidedly white trash lifestyle they're accustomed to, even with an unplanned child in the mix.

I think his use of "dumbocraps" was what made it an obvious troll. I would have thought him serious if he used: Derpocrat, Dumbocrat, Liebruls, or DemoRats (although this one is iffy, used incorrectly and you definitely out yourself as a troll)

In other words, stupid people stay stupid.

I wish adoption and abortion were more acceptable in this country. 'Sacrificing' oneself to raise a child through struggle is held up as some ultimate act of responsibility and honor. Wrong, sad, and sick. It really sucks for the kid and it sucks for society - but the moms get so much praise for being "brave", "strong", "amazing" and "unselfish." That's their reward. These are girls/women who want and get praise and positive reinforcement for having babies. Take away the "motherhood worship." and the problem would decrease. People pretty much ignore you if you have an abortion -- where's the fun in that?? You can't put pics of your non-pregnancy on Facebook.

Bring back orphanages and see if Starbucks will add free contraception to the menu.
 
2012-10-03 11:28:24 AM
So what? They're all in their early 20's now. That's plenty old enough to have a child. And you don't want to wait too long between children... I have perfectly responsible friends who got married in their early 20's and had a kid or two.

This is really stupid. Being on welfare has absolutely nothing to do with getting pregnant, you f*cking moron. Stop equating everyone who isn't like you to being a mooch. You remind me of the redneck coont I worked with who thought everyone else was cheating the system and gaining off her, while she simultaneously told me about how she collects illegal farm subsidies for living on a large plot of land with no crops.

I gaurantee you are the same.

In my perfect world, condoms would be handed out daily in every Jr High and High School in the country. Here's your homework, and here's some condoms. Have a good weekend. There'd be free condom dispensers in every public restroom. You could walk into any corner store and pick up a box free of charge. Condoms would be in boxes of cereal and cracker jacks like prizes. There'd be cookie jars of condoms on every bar next to the pretzels. Your latte at starbucks would come with a coffee flavored condom. If you couldn't get out, you could call up and have some delivered.

I can't think of many better ways to spend my fantasy country's tax dollars than ensuring that all babbies are planned, wanted babbies. Not to mention the decrease in STDs.
 
2012-10-03 11:50:40 AM
I am shocked, SHOCKED, that young girls who received attention for their pregnancies would go and get pregnant again. I mean, what are the odds of them engaging in the same attention-seeking behavior twice in a row, amirite?

qorkfiend: Since getting pregnant originally was their path to fame and fortune, no, I'm not exactly surprised they're pregnant again...


Exactly. They get pregnant and get turned into celebrities. Considering the likely intelligence of the people involved, nobody should be surprised they saw another kid as another shot at the money pot.

The teen pregnancy rate was in decline long before these shows hit the air. They just hopped on for the ride, and said, "Whee! Look what we're doing!"

Correlation != causation and all that

Except I think the problem is real reality is not the same as MTV's version of reality. So I think that even if the actual show, these women are struggling, working crappy jobs, and not doing much else, the show fails to mention things like how these girls aren't getting rich, but they are making decent money just by being on the show, on top of that they are paid when they do interviews in places like those crappy supermarket tabloids. And I think a good portion of the people, especially the young people who are MTV's target market and grew up on reality TV are savvy enough viewers to pick up on that.

This.

I grew up with a pretty devoutly religious mother, but she was modern-minded enough to teach me I had birth control options. I've been on birth control since I was sixteen, and ten years later, I'm still happily childless.

Single mother friends of mine always seem to be digging for sympathy from me, but honestly, I have none. Take your pills or close your legs. Not that farking hard to figure out.

I don't know I think most people watching tv, especially the younger people watching probably realize that this isn't an actual documentary that they are watching, and (sadly) outside of the show these women are actually legitimate celebrities, and as such they receive all the money and perks associated with being a celebrity (even if they don't know exactly how it works).

The Teen Moms are "celebrities" ( I use that word in the loosest term), not the "16 and Pregnants".

Doesn't matter any way, Teen Mom's been cancelled.

I bet the kids on 16 & pregnant don't make anywhere near that. That amount is for the first group who are now established "stars". No reason to pay a nobody teenager $65K when you know you can find thousands that be willing to do it for a couple thousand.

But there doesn't seem to be any measurable negative effects from these shows. Teen pregnancy is lower than it has been since they started measuring such things.

Anyway, those people seem pretty miserable on the show.

The thing is from what the article says only one of them is married and can support the kids. They could all be married but the article doesn't mention that.

I don't think people would be upset if they were married and were able to support their kids, but people do get upset when they had one kid they couldn't support and didn't learn from that mistake and turned around and had a second kid in the same situation.

Unfortunately, a lot of teenagers are stupid. Instead of listening to show's the message about the huge responsibility and sacrifice of having babies, most of MTV's teen viewers just hear "If you get pregnant, you too can get paid and be on TV! Go out and get knocked up today!"

You can always take Todd Akin's advice and have your non-pregnancy terminated, then post the pictures of your un-abortion on FB.

Why oh why don't they give these girls IUDs? It's easy to put it in right after childbirth. It's 99+% effective, works for 5 years and isn't dependent on someone remembering to take a pill every day at the same time or swap out a ring every month.
