Teen Vogue Must Stop Promoting Sexual Activity to Teens!

Parents, Beware of Teen Vogue's Sex Advice for Your Kids

The line has been crossed! We need you to speak on behalf of our youth and say NO to Teen Vogue. Teens must never be the target of a mainstream teen focused media publication’s desire to offer up an unsolicited “how-to” sex guide encouraging its young readers to explore anal sex or any type of sexual activity for that matter!

Instead of publishing the standard cocktail of fashion must-haves, beauty tips and celebrity worship features designed for its millions of teen and tween readers, Teen Vogue.com  recently decided it was in the best interest of children to publish a jaw dropping article instructing teen and pre-teen youth on how to have so called “safe anal sex.”

In response, CitizenGO is partnering with Enough Is Enough in a call to action to “say no to Teen Vogue.” (#SayNoToTeenVogue)

Please stand with us as we oppose the recent article in Teen Vogue Anal Sex: What You Need to Know/How to Do it the Right Way.

Each time the petition is signed, an email will be sent on behalf of the signer to editors at TeenVogue.com.

Below are excerpts from Enough Is Enough’s President Donna Rice Hughes recently published article. “Parents Beware: Teen Vogue’s Sex Advice for your Kids. http://www.christianpost.com/news/parents-beware-teen-vogues-sex-advice-for-your-kids-192254/

This “Anal Sex 101” how to on teenvogue.com is troubling on many levels.

It is irresponsible for the popular and mainstream teen fashion magazine to promote sexual activity of any kind. Most parents want to and should be the primary source for teaching their children about healthy sexuality.

Given the article's placement in the magazine's "Sexual Health" section, this supposed safe instruction, "anal 101" how-to guide fails to mention the health risks associated with anal sex, which carries the highest risk of transmitting HIV, according to the CDC.

The author goes on to explain in a lengthy and very provocative way — surely to spark interest in pre-teen and teens, both male, female and anyone in between — "Why anal? Anal sex, though often stigmatized and shamed, is a perfectly natural way to engage in sexual activity. People have been having anal sex since the dawn of humanity."

To all concerned, please heed this warning: in our current pornified culture of anything goes, don't assume that popular magazines or websites are safe. In fact, it's better to assume that many are not.

Please take a moment to sign our petition to say no to Teen Vogue. This petition will go directly to the editors of Teen Vogue who decided it was in our teens’ best interest to explore anal sex. Help preserve the innocence of our youth!

I'm saying NO to Teen Vogue

It is irresponsible for the popular and mainstream teen fashion magazine to promote sexual activity of any kind, much less encourage an unhealthy sex practice like anal sex. Please respect that most parents want to and should be the primary source for teaching their children about healthy sexuality.

I will boycott Teen Vogue until this article is retracted and these types of articles cease to be published. Enough Is Enough! 

Sincerely,
[Your Name]

Teen Vogue Must Stop Promoting Sexual Activity to Teens!
