*headdesk*

I’m not sure, exactly, how our culture has devolved to the point where the unplanned pregnancy of a 16-year-old starlet sibling is cover story material. Or how the mother of said sibling could allow her maternal instincts to be so crippled to think that her teenage daughter’s impending maternity is anything but private. Or how, in some twisted way, this all seems like a family crisis turned into a publicity stunt. Or how, in this day and age, teenagers still don’t realize that if you’re going to have sex, use a fucking condom. But what I do know is that this isn’t a “story.” And for God’s sake, has no one in the Spears family every watched and after-school special?

p.s. Fitting that this “news” should be in “OK” magazine when it is in fact nothing of the sort. Irony never gets old.

and even more ironic is the fact that apparently they met at a church... i'm hoping a catholic one.

Ugh. That's really all I can say. This isn't newsworthy, it's not something I can have an opinion about because it's none of my fucking business.

"Or how, in this day and age, teenagers still don’t realize that if you’re going to have sex, use a fucking condom."
Hear hear!

I don't understand how they would go to the press.
I even less understand why someone would buy this. They only reported(I use that term loosely)this because OK believed it would sell magazines.
I had a surprise pregnancy at 27 and the last thing I imagined doing was going to the press.

This is why all parents should be blessed with gay kids. No accidental pregnancies.

Dorothy...I love the blog, but can you keep it a Spears-free zone of sanity?

I am disappointed that you decided to add to the crazy over exposure of this absurd story.

You could just have ignored it.

I think it's her blog and she can post what she wants on it just as you can choose to read what you want on it.

And yes, it is very sad.
