Look out Farrah, you’ve got a new enemy in town and her name is Kim Kardashian.
Kim Kardashian took to her blog to discuss teen pregnancy, and not so subtly hinted that shows like MTVs Teen Mom have a hand in promoting it.

“While I was at the Today Show this morning I saw a story about a Memphis high school where 90 young female students were either pregnant or have given birth this year! I just couldn’t believe this and I find it so sad and disturbing. It seems that shows like Teen Mom are all of a sudden making teen pregnancy seem cool in the eyes of young girls. The kids from these shows are all over the news, even on the covers of magazines, and have been become almost like celebrities, but girls, these are not people you should idolize!
When I think back to when I was 16, there is no way I would even have considered having a baby. That thought wouldn’t even have entered my head. Having a baby is one one of the biggest, and most life-changing decisions a person can make and while I’m not saying that no teen is in the position to raise a child, having a baby so young shouldn’t be seen as the trendy thing to do.
Girls, please, think very carefully before you make these kind of decisions. Talk to your family, friends, teachers, and most of all, be careful.”
Kim also should have mentioned that the mom’s on the MTV show make upwards of $60K a year to exploit the fruit of their loins, a slightly different financial reality for the majority of young women who get pregnant.
More words of wisdom from the Kardashians, they’re totally the Yodas of their generation!
