My fiance and I have been guiltily watching 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom since the beginning. I got hooked on it when I was pregnant and just can't stop watching the train wreck that is the Teen Mom phenomenon. I know someone over thirty should be watching Meet the Press or House but that aside..
I came across this article on my facebook newsfeed asking wether the tabloids should just leave these girl alone. Personally, if people really cared they would probably be asking why MTV isn't just leaving these girls alone.
So, I'm wondering, what do you guys think, is this show glorifying teen pregnancy and making celebrities out of people who are already too shell shocked by life to take it on? Do you think they asked for it when they signed up for the show? Do you think these girls should be sheltered in the press somehow?
