What could have been an awesome opportunity to show the real struggle of teen mothers and to scare straight a lot of these fast teenagers out here has become an hour of ridiculosity (Yeah, it’s that bad that I made up a word. Do something about it). Why? Because it seems that teen pregnancy is being glamorized. I think the show went from trying to be positive to becoming just like every other reality show on television that follows random people and then makes them overnight celebrities. Nowadays, thanks to the show, you can be 16 and pregnant, get to be on TV and get paid for it, wind up on the front of magazines smiling and making mad mulah, even if you decided not to take full responsibility for your baby (Hey, Jenelle). And they wonder why some teens are deciding to try and get pregnant so they can be on the show. It’s clearly not doing what it’s supposed to so folks need to quit while they are ahead.
