A recent issue of Teen Vogue included an article about anal sex, which offered "teens, beginners, and all inquisitive folk" a guide on how to have safe, pain-free, and consensual anal sex. It's since sparked quite the controversy.
Some people, like Christian mom blogger Elizabeth Johnston who runs The Activist Mommy, weren't such a big fans of Teen Vogue's article. Johnston hated it so much, in fact, that she decided to publicly burn it in a video posted to her Facebook page:
"I cannot believe what this Teen Vogue piece of trash has printed," Johnston began. She then flipped open to the article about anal sex.
"They are teaching children how to be safely sodomized. They are teaching kids how to have anal intercourse," she continued. "We should not be teaching children, period, how to have sex."
After complaining about the magazine having written articles that contained information about masturbation, gender fluidity, and homosexuality, Johnston implored her readers to go on a mission to rid the world of Teen Vogue.
"Go to your local gas stations, your local libraries, your local grocery stores, ask to speak to the manager or owner, and demand they remove Teen Vogue from the shelves immediately," she instructed.
"These editors’ brains are in the gutter, now let’s put their sales in the gutter where they belong. Don’t let your kids read garbage," Johnston said as she threw the magazine pages onto a bonfire. Yeesh.
Sex educator and writer Gigi Engle, who authored the anal sex article, caught wind of the criticisms about her piece and spoke out about it on Twitter.
Engle made one thing clear: she's never going to stop sharing information with young people about their sexual health, even if it pisses off Christian mom bloggers.
