Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Helps teens and young adults to feels comfortable with their sexuality.

The articles used in teen vogue often talk about sexual activity, the majority of the reviews I have seen on this magazine have been negative due to this fact. However I believe that TeenVogue's discussions about sex aren't anything new to teens, these discussions will happen between teens even without TeenVogue articles. The only difference the articles make is that teens have a place in which they can educate themselves without being exposed to explicit imagery. TeenVogue's articles are educational and protective to children and teens likewise!

Promoting rape porn

This is horrendous. Apart from a journalist of theirs going on a rant on social media telling women to “suck my chopped off dick”, now they’re promoting rape porn. A quote from their article “Is Watching Porn Bad? What You Need to Know” BY NONA WILLIS ARONOWITZ (article here: https://archive.is/tUu2D) “Porn that portrays nonconsensual sex, for instance, isn’t necessarily misogynist if it centers all characters’ pleasure and agency. The next time you come across seemingly racist or sexist porn, give some thought as to whether the porn you’re watching is self-aware and feminist, rather than simply reproducing bigotry.” Non consensual sex is rape. This is normalising rape and rape porn to children. This is grooming. I cannot believe they actually wrote this and published it.
