New York Lawmakers Team Up To Take On TI

Published: Sunday 1st Dec 2019 by David

New York lawmakers are launching a campaign to protect young girls and women from the kinds of “virginity” tests the rapper TI forced his daughter to take.

Learn more below…

The rapper’s public image took an enormous hit when he revealed that he cajoled his daughter into taking a medical test to prove that her hymen was still in tact.

Why? To ensure that she was still a virgin.

His admission was met with shock, horror and disgust as many considered it to be a disconcerting invasion of his daughter’s privacy and foolish.

Here’s why…

 


Now New York legislators are ready to stand up for girls who are subjected to the invasive tests.

CBS reports…

Identical bills filed in the New York State Senate and New York State Assembly seek to ban “licensed medical practitioners from performing or supervising virginity examinations and subjects any medical practitioner who does perform or supervise such performance to professional misconduct penalties as well as possible criminal charges.”

The bills will not ban all medical hymen examinations but will take a stand against any which are used to determine whether or not a female is a virgin.

Assemblywoman Michaelle Solages explains…

These examinations are not only a violation of women’s and girls’ human rights, but in cases of rape can cause additional pain and mimic the original act of sexual violence, leading to re-experience, re-traumatization and re-victimization.

The term ‘virginity’ is not a medical or scientific term.  Rather, the concept of ‘virginity’ is a social, cultural and religious construct – one that reflects gender discrimination against women and girls. As a result, the United Nations, along with the World Health Organization, U.N. Women and U.N. Human Rights, called for a global ban on the practice.

The legal move comes after the World Health Organisation condemned the practice.

    But sexx trafficking and organ harvesting are at an all time with the law saying “we cant do anything if we dont know where you are”. So instead they focus on this?

      My thoughts exactly. He’s black and nothing more needs to be said. We will always be the b*** of every joke in white america. But in the end, they won’t be laughing.

    I know alot of ppl will disagree but I don’t think its that serious. Let people parent their children how they see fit. Of course there are certain things that is off limits but I don’t see this being 1 of them. I think he is being an involved father. With some teens popping out multiple kids before 18 its nothing wrong with being informed. Ppl might not agree but they would say hes a bad parent if she was a teen mom.

      It’s a gross violation of her human rights. She’s 18 years old, not 12. I bet he doesn’t subject his three teenage sons to such “virginity checks”.

    • MCalling you h*** out December 1, 2019

      So what about his sons not being put through what she is?

    • Clarksooon December 1, 2019

      There are other more effective ways to curb teenage pregnancy , example
      Sèx education
      Use of condoms
      Communication

      Besides why is it only girls we focus on when we talk of teenage pregnancy? What of the teenage boys fùcking up and down and getting everybody daughter pregnant?

    As a man, I am not educated enough to have an opinion on this topic. HOWEVER, funny how they’re demonizing him when there are way more diabolical issues at bay.

    • Neon December 1, 2019

      It was the outcry came from the general public that’s sparked the preceding action.

    • Clarksooon December 1, 2019

      Diabolical issues like what?

      We are humans we can multi task

      Just because there are other issues that doesnt mean we shouldn’t focus on this

      T.i is an idiot.
      I can bet his sons are not virgins.

      They can use their Freedom of speech ain’t that what y’all weak h*** cry about😂

    If he can trust his boys to tell him the truth, why doesn’t he trust his daughter who willingly takes the test? They discussed this question on The View, and one of the comments I agree with is that it’s wrong for TI to think his home would change only if his daughter were to become pregnant, and not if his boys were to get someone pregnant. That attitude is why there are so many absentee fathers now; they don’t take their role seriously. The woman carries the baby, but the man needs to be there to carry the woman and build a family. No home should remain unchanged when a baby is on the way.

    • Neon December 1, 2019

      Amen to that!

      @Eric – I agree.
