This ain’t cute at all! This photo was posted on Facebook and Tumblr recently of two pregnant teen girls. The caption read, “Two pregnant BFF’s 15 and 14 years old…”
I instantly thought of the story I wrote last year about 90 girls in one school’s student population who were all pregnant at the same time.

October has been designated as “Let’s Talk” month so that we can at least get the conversation started with our teens. This discussion needs to be had with BOTH boys and girls because… DUH! it takes both to make a baby.
Bringing a new life into the world is a beautiful thing that should not be taken lightly. Many teen moms and dads are ill equipped to care for that new life and are forced into poverty stricken conditions. Is that what we want for our next generation?
Georgia has the 13th highest teen pregnancy rate in the country. Preventing teen pregnancy often starts by changing circumstances and inspiring young people. Being that teens are posting photos like this online, pregnancy at such a young age is clearly becoming more acceptable in their culture and we need to do something quick, fast and in a hurry!
What are your thoughts about this duel teen pregnancy pic?

The photo above circulated online recently, sparking comments like “Parent of the Year,” “Somebody need to report her ass” and “Bad parenting 4 life.”
While I don’t personally believe a photo alone can adequately assess the parental skills of a particular person, this photo could definitely skew one’s opinion in negative way.
The chick in the photo noticed it on IAmATLien.com, where I’d attached the caption “So she put Lil man on time out to send a butt shot to her boo? #WhereDayDoThatAT #youchicksneedJesus #Call911″ and left a series of message on StraightFromTheA’s Facebook page crying fowl.
While I’m not the originator of the photograph, I felt it only fair that I give her a say in the matter, and in response to the caption, she wrote:
No I didn’t send nothing to a boo. I just didn’t want him looking at me so I told him to turn his head. An asfar as being reported to anyone I doubt that it would really be fucked up if I just let him look at me taking a pic of myself it’s fish scale here y’all don’t have shit else to do but try an rag on someone an I didn’t even post this pic someone stole it so I’m bout to report that…. Man I tell you some people don’t have shit to do I would have completly over looked this a women with swimwear on really get over it. Pesients
But wait… she’s not finished… Continue Reading…
The unemployment rate is at an all time high and there are women from all walks of life who are willing to shed their inhibitions (and their clothes) in order to put food on the table and a roof over their family’s heads.

People with advanced degrees can’t even make ends meet in this economy, and MSNBC has documented one such account of an attorney turned “topless dancer” to pay her bills.
In Atlanta, it seems that stripping is THE number one alternative for unemployed women who have the body and the nerve to “shake what their mama gave them.” but how shocked would you be to see your Attorney sliding down that pole at Onyx or Magic City? Continue Reading…

According to our friends over at Starcasm, Weezy was rocking out at a concert in Denver, Colorado recently when an over zealous fan attempted to bum rush the stage.
