A distraught 18 year old high school student with at least 500 TWITTER followers
took her life AFTER she sent a series of shocking messages on the popular social network.
Over the course of six hours, Ashley Billasano took to her twitter page and posted 144 messages expressing pain and grief prior to taking her own life.
“It’s obvious she needed somebody to talk to and that’s what I believe those tweets were,” said Chief Craig Brady with the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Department.
“She was trying to communicate and trying to get people to talk to her.”
Sad thing is… none of Ashley’s 500 TWITTER “friends” lifted a finger to call authorities to warn them that she may be about to hurt herself… NOT ONE!

The photo above is currently circulating on the social networking site Twitter. I have no idea of it’s origin but it’s apparent that the girls in it are pretty young…. and pretty PREGNANT!
I wrote a post a while ago about 90 Teens Pregnant at one Tennessee high school (click HERE if you missed it), so the imagery of a group of knocked up teens, while shocking, isn’t THAT surprising.
“Amber Cole” was just the beginning! This should be a warning shot that if we don’t take the wheel and steer our teens in another direction… THIS is what will be the norm.
Shoutout to @MisMinL23 for bringing to my attention.

Facebook PSA: “Like Mah Status Bish!”
Asking someone to “LIKE” your Facebook status
is almost as annoying as tweeting someone asking them to “FOLLOW ME
” on the Twittah.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m sure there are several other social media annoyances like those chicks who pose bucked naked in the bathroom mirror everyday seeking online validation, but I digress.
I dunno how I ever missed Miles Jai‘s classic Facebook PSA, but he manages to puts all you annoying “Like Mah Status” b*tches on blast with this interpretative performance art piece.
All you avid “Face-bookers” probably already “LIKED” this hilarious video, but for those of you who haven’t seen it yet YOU HAVE GOTS to watch… Continue Reading…
Never in a gazillion years would I want to offend anyone who is permanently disabled, but this could be viewed as somewhat of a PSA.
The young lady pictured above calls herself “CrippleWithSwag” and says that while there are definitely some parts of her that don’t work, her Vagina is NOT one of ‘em. *faints*
She may possibly introduce you fellas (and maybe some ladies) to a whole ‘nother world of bliss.
And you bett not laugh… Continue Reading…
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?

According to a disturbing new study, oral sex could be more hazardous to mens’ health than cigarettes.

But wait. Before you fellas stop eating our tacos altogether, maybe you should just be a lil more discriminatory in the practice. Continue Reading…
