Rapper T.I. draws outrage with daughter's 'virginity test'

Recommended Posts

LOS ANGELES (AFP): US rapper T.I. has provoked outrage by revealing that he forces his 18-year-old daughter to undergo an annual "virginity test" at the gynaecologist.

The Grammy-winning musician told a podcast how he escorts Deyjah Harris to the doctor's office after each birthday to "check her hymen".

Usually like the day after the (birthday) party, she's enjoying her gifts, I put a sticky note on the door: 'Gyno. Tomorrow. 9:30, '" T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, told the presenters.

The trips began after Deyjah's sixteenth birthday, Harris said, and his daughter is required to sign a waiver allowing the doctor to share the "results" with him.

The episode of the Ladies Like Us podcast was released on Tuesday (Nov 5), but appeared to have been removed Wednesday afternoon after it went viral on social media.

Social media users were quick to condemn Harris's behaviour, and express concern for Deyjah.

"It's extremely abusive to police your daughter's hymen and any doctor who would participate in such an act needs to lose their licence," tweeted author Ijeoma Oluo.

Jennifer Gunter, a gynaecologist and bestselling writer, added that "hymen exams are medically not a thing", and that the so-called tests "support a disgusting patriarchal trope".

The presence of an intact hymen - which can easily be broken without engaging in sexual activity - is not regarded as an effective way to test virginity.

 

 

In the podcast, female hosts Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham laugh at Harris's comments, jokingly referring to his daughter as a "prisoner". Harris's representatives did not immediately respond to request for comment.

A Twitter account appearing to belong to Deyjah Harris had "liked" several comments condemning the rapper's behaviour, including one describing it as "disgusting, possessive and controlling".

Harris, 39, is one of the leading forces in trap music, a style of hip-hop from the US South that emphasises aggressive lyricism and 1980s-style drum machines.

He served seven months in prison in 2009 for attempting to buy unregistered machine guns from dealers who turned out to be undercover agents.

He spent another 10 months in prison two years later for violating terms of probation on drug charges.

He has won three Grammy Awards, including for the song My Love, a collaboration with pop star Justin Timberlake. - AFP

And the doctor never educated him about the hymen? The hymen is NOT an indication for virginity. Many girls still have an intact hymen even after they had sex, some hymen break when you do sports and some girls are  even born without a hymen.

It‘s upsetting that his daughter has to endure this procedure every year, because her father is so uneducated.

Gross all round.

The fact that he felt he should share this publicly as if it wasn't bad enough already.

Maybe he should teach her daughter not to be like he was and to avoid men like HIM instead of doing it that way. That and he clearly doesn't know how the hymen works so yeah. I feel sorry for her and he pretty much embarrassed her on worldwide too by revealing it...

Oh the doctor did BUT TI remained ignorant even after the doctor told him. 

 

His daughter has since liked tweets against her father.

The doctor did. He actually asked the doctor what other ways can break an hymen, and when the doctor told him he just said that his daughter doesn't practice any sport or anything.

Anyway he's trash, imagine being so hung up on smth like that...no words.

I hope she will stay away from this torture she was forced doing because of her dad and his middle ages mindset, now that she turned 18.

Now that she turned 18, she's legal and an adult who has the right to be independent and without being under control of her father. She can have sexual relationships if she wants to. Why is her father so hung up on her virginity as if trying to keep her clean as if he's innocent and a good man wwhenhe's trash and convicted multiple times in the past.
