- Rapper T.I. said he goes to the gynaecologist with his 18-year-old daughter, Deyjah Harris, to make sure ‘her hymen is still intact.’
- He said he made her tell the doctor to share her medical information with him.
There’s no easy way to prepare you for what disgusting thing rapper T.I. just said about his daughter, her hymen, and her virginity, so just get ready for what you’re about to read.
While talking on the ‘Life Hacks’ episode of the Ladies Like Us podcast, T.I. decided to tell everyone what f*cked up thing he does to make sure his 18-year-old daughter’s ‘hymen is still intact,’ which he equates with being a virgin.
For the record, since apparently some people still don’t understand, the hymen is a tiny piece of tissue that can ‘break’ if someone has sex, uses a tampon, rides a bike, rides a horse, or does gymnastics. There are plenty of things that can cause someone’s hymen to ‘break,’ so the fact that T.I. associates an “intact” hymen with virginity is completely wrong. Also, some people are born without hymens, which just proves the point that they shouldn’t be associated with virginity.
After talking about the ways kids “thank their parents for not allowing them to damage themselves as much as they could have,” T.I. said he’s doing everything in his power to make sure Deyjah is a virgin. He said, “Deyjah’s 18, just graduated high school now and she’s attending her first year of college, figuring it out for herself. And yes, not only have we had the conversation, we have yearly trips to the gynaecologist to check her hymen.”
He also described how he forced his daughter to tell the doctor that they can share her medical information with him. I’m just gonna copy and paste his response here because it’s truly disgusting and you have to read it all:
‘So we’ll go and sit down and the doctor will come and talk and the doctor’s maintaining a high level of professionalism. He’s like, “You know sir, I have to, in order to share information”—I’m like, “Deyjah they want you to sign this so we can share information. Is there anything you wouldn’t want me to know? See doc? No problem.” And so then they come and say, “Well I just want you to know that there are other ways besides sex that the hymen can be broken like bike riding, athletics, horseback riding and just other forms of athletic physical activity.” So I say, “Look doc, she doesn’t ride no horses, she doesn’t ride no bike, she don’t play no sports. Just check the hymen please and give me back my results expeditiously.”‘
I wish it ended there, but he continued and said, ‘I will say as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact.’ And in case all that wasn’t bad enough, he then shamed virgins because ‘they’re no fun’ and nobody would want to be with his daughter if she’s still a virgin. He concluded, ‘Who wants a virgin? Like really? All that work.’
Ugh. Hopefully, Deyjah is able to control her own body and decide what is right for her soon.
