I’m sorry, but why is a girl who had a kid out of wedlock telling other girls not to have a kid out of wedlock?
I can appreciate the message, and certainly it’s not ideal to have a baby as a teenager. But how can Bristol Palin look into a camera and say, more or less: “I’m rich, and my mom is famous. So I could have a kid. But you’re poor and your mom isn’t famousâ€”so don’t have sex. It’s bad.”
Were politics not involved here, Bristol Palin is just another teen mother being anonymously supported by her embarrassed-yet-wealthy folks. Instead, we’re hearing from her, not the girls who need to be speakingâ€”those who had babys and were actually poor and struggling and hurting and overwhelmed.
Uhg. What a joke.
PS: That all being said, I have no doubt the kid is doing this out of good intentions. I don’t mean to slam Bristol Palin, the person, because I’ve gotta think her life is awful in many ways, and she seems nice. But the way she’s being used … gross.
