T.I.’s daughter is somewhere hiding under her pillow right now. The rapper had many in disgust after he revealed he checks to see if his 18 years old daughter(Deyjah Harris) is still a virgin through a doctor paps test. T.I. who is already viewed as a controlling man seemed to have thought that overwhelming support was going to be on hand upon his revelation. Many cringed in disgust as they listened to the rapper’s revelation. Many felt that it’s Deyjah’s body, and her father is crossing the line. On a podcast with Ladies Like Us as the subject jumped to parenting and the sex talk- and was asked about if he had that sex talk with his daughters- T.I. responded in saying:
Not only have we had the conversation — we have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen,” T.I. said. “Yes, I go with her.
He goes into saying:
Right after her birthday, we celebrate, then usually like the day after the party, she’s enjoying the gifts, I put a sticky note on the door: ‘Tomorrow. 9:30
So we’ll go and sit down and the doctor will come and talk, and the doctor’s maintaining a high level of professionalism,” T.I. said. “He’s like, ‘Well you know, sir, I have to, to share information’ — I’m like, ‘Deyjah, they want you to sign this so we can share information. Is there anything you would not want me to know? See, Doc? Ain’t no problem.’ ”
In response to the viral story of T.I. going with his daughter to the gynecologist by way of checking her hymen to see if she is pregnant got OB/OBYN Dr Jen Gunter reacting in saying:
The hymen is no virginity indicator, 50% of sexually active teens do not have a disrupted hymen.
The hymen is a thin piece of mucosal tissue which partially covers the vaginal opening. Its purpose is to keep germs and dirt out of the vagina. A damaged hymen is viewed as a sexual act having taken place.
Essentially, it was explained to T.I. by his daughter’s doctor that a broken hymen doesn’t mean his daughter had sex. The mentioned activities such as riding horses, bikes, and sports are some of the activities that can break the hymen. T.I. responded to the doctor by saying:
I say, ‘Look doc — she don’t ride no horses, she don’t ride no bikes, she don’t play no sports, man — just check the hymen, please, and give me back my results expeditiously. I will say, as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact.”
T.I.’s action has been viewed by many as over the top controlling, disturbing and disgusting mixed with feelings a boggled mind. Many are saying Deyjah is 18 years old and a college student and an adult now. Wonder what would T.I. do if Deyjah actually admit she had sex. What would he do then ? Do you think it’s inappropriate for T.I. to be following his daughter to her paps check-up for results on whether she is sexual or not ? What would you do if you were T.I.’s daughter ?
