Feminist Icon Says T.I. Violating His Daughter's Human Rights For Making Sure She's A Virgin
(AllHipHop News) Feminist icon Gloria Steinem claims rapper T.I. is breaking the law by having his daughter's hymen checked annually to make sure she is still a virgin.
The rap star stunned listeners of the Ladies Like Us podcast last week when he revealed he books his daughter an appointment with a gynecologist on her birthday every year to make sure the 18-year-old college student is still pure.
Several female celebrities have reprimanded the rapper, and now Steinem has told TMZ that she thinks his actions are a human rights violation.
"It is not his hymen, it is not his body," she fumed. "He doesn't have any right to do that... You can't invade a child's body for anything other than a medical emergency or a medical reason."
And author and activist Steinem is suspicious of how T.I. gets the information about his daughter's hymen from her doctor after he revealed she signs a release form allowing the medic to speak to her dad.
"There's a power relationship that's very suspicious there," she added. "I don't think it sounds like free will... and the courts should be after him."
