If you are a mother who has a daughter, please find out if she is reading “Teen Vogue.” Do it and do it now, because this dangerous magazine is not safe for youngsters due to its offensive content.
Many of you will recall last year’s boycott that was prompted by an outrageous article that featured a graphic, step-by-step instruction manual that not only taught teenagers what sodomy was, but actually encouraged them to try it.
Let’s not even get into the morality issue about that. As for the health issue, it’s been proven that sodomy is physically harmful and diseases are much more likely to be spread with that kind of contact.
Also, “Teen Vogue” neglects to mention that many of the girls who read their publication are under the age of consent and should not be engaging in any sexual activity, regardless of type.
For those who think I am a prude or against sex education, that is not the case. I am in favor of teaching young ladies and young men about basic anatomy, biology, and reproduction. But I am not ok with obscene material being written specifically for an audience under the age of 18.
Topping the sodomy article would be tough, yet they’ve done it again and it’s equally awful. The latest piece of trash is entitled: I Am a Jewish Teen and I Support the Palestinian Cause. It features a 19-year-old college student who rails about how she’s “ashamed at being brainwashed by Zionists adults” and claims to be “terrified” about the Jerusalem Embassy move because it’s the “most anti-peace decision in decades.”
Such views coming from a Jew are not only odd, they are at odds with reality. However, when the writer mentions her affiliation with If Not Now, her delusion becomes obvious.
Like Jewish Voice for Peace, If Not Now is supposedly a Jewish group, yet it exists for only one reason: to encourage Jews to act against their own interest. These vile groups promote an anti-Israel bias, defend Hamas terrorists, spread lies, and seek to poison muddled minds with false statements about how Jews are evil and Arabs are wonderful.
“Teen Vogue” is supposed to be a beauty and style publication, yet they devote a large portion of content to other categories, with only one point of view being allowed. Where is the space for young ladies that love Israel? They certainly exist, but if you read most magazines that fact is omitted and it’s done on purpose.
There is nothing wrong with politically geared magazines and books. Both the liberal and conservative ideology attract many members. Individuals should have the opportunity to read about different mindsets before they make up their own. What I don’t like is a fringe agenda being packaged as a beauty magazine that’s written for the youngest members of society who truly have no experience and no way of knowing what’s up.
Adults must take the time to reach out to their kids, and when appropriate, other kids. The schools and pop culture may be teaching them things that are contrary to our values. Until we make an effort to balance the scales, nothing is going to change.
Israel is 70 years young. Its future is not guaranteed and should never be taken for granted. Each generation must do what they can to ensure it continues. “Teen Vogue” is on a mission to undermine that and it’s not anything I want in my home.
