Looking Back on Teen Vogue’s Perfect Christmas: Antifa, Sex Lessons and White Guilt

Ahh, those Christmas traditions. Gathering with family, expressing love and respect, cherishing those near to us and remembering those departed, without whom we and our progeny would not exist, and, most important, celebrating the birth of Christ…

...and reading that classic Dickens story, “Anal Sex 101,” at Teen Vogue.

Sadly, it seems that some folks not only don’t remember that narrative being part of the celebration of Christ’s birth, they’re suffering under the bizarre delusion that promoting something like it on Christmas Day is insulting and classless.

Well, many of the writers, editors, and publishers churning out that “magazine” for teens know better, and on Christmas day they went on a Tweet binge to alert folks about the “true meaning” of a Teen Vogue Christmas.

Thus, they had to Tweet the link to the aforementioned “Anal Sex 101” -- an “article” that comes complete with anatomical diagrams that were also on display in the Tweet, and one which seems to overlook the fact that for much of the magazine’s readership, engaging in such activity is not only unhealthy, it’s statutory rape.

And, not content with that wonderful gift, the Teen Vogue gang gave us a tweet celebrating, “An Oral History of LGBTQ Activism in the #20teens,” said activism not just about treating people kindly, but about gaining political power, shutting down free speech, punishing business owners for operating their businesses as they might free choose, and promoting forced collectivism – all of which seem to be strangely lacking from Christ’s teaching.

Thanks to the Teen Vogue gang, we get to learn from them, instead of Christ, for Christmas. And since the pieces are written for kids, they’re easy to read, so we can fit in plenty to occupy our time on Christmas Day.

So what better option for the day than to finish that lovely, elucidating piece and move on to their next tweeted Christmas piece, praising Antifa by saying: "Antifa grows out of a larger revolutionary politics that aspires toward creating a better world, but the primary motivation is to stop racists from organizing."

Yeah. For Christmas, Teen Vogue made sure to promote a violent, terroristic, collectivist organization that was started by Stalin’s Communist Party in order to attack the principles of Natural Rights, property respect, freedom of speech, freedom of worship, and self-ownership that feature Christian ethics at their core.

But that’s not enough to insult Christians on Christmas Day. The folks at Teen Vogue appear to have thought that more was needed, so they spat out a Tweet to their story entitled “Oral Sex 101: What You Need To Know About ‘Going Down.’”

Remember, feminists, it’s men who sexualize young girls and promote body images and habits that are dangerous to their mental and physical well-being. It’s not the female editor of Teen Vogue.

And if you haven’t gotten into the Christmas spirit yet; if you haven’t felt the glow of Christ’s love and all the life-giving traditions that Christians have attached to it, Teen Vogue is ready.

It’s likely because of your “White Privilege.”

So they offered this on Christmas Day, a tweet linking to their hand-crafted, locally-sourced, farm-fresh, culturally-spiced, politically-correct piece: “How White People Can Hold Each Other Accountable to Stop Institutional Racism," which is a great treat to continue trying to fool young people into thinking that there is “Institutional Racism” and that the government needs to punish people for it by regulating their freedom of association and speech.

It might have been difficult for some teens to understand, so in their Tweet, Teen Vogue offered this:

Thus, we get preachy, self-righteous egalitarianism fueled by the mythology of “white privilege.” And you thought that a “White Christmas” was out of fashion.

Nope! It’s still in vogue, Teen Vogue! And you can enjoy it as you let the publication brainwash you into thinking that it’s okay to prejudge people according to race (as long as you prejudge Caucasian people as evil, and other skin tones as needing fascist or communist collectivism and brutal government force, rather than simple Christian fair treatment, to lift them in their lives).

So, Happy 2020. One hopes you enjoyed your Teen Vogue Christmas, all promoted through Twitter on Christmas Day.

And if that doesn’t make hard to hold back tears, few things will.

It’s sad that some parents actually let their teenage daughters read that trash.

They probably don’t know. I believe this is online an parents have not a clue. If it is still in print form they could get it at the school or public library.

Its just there to get hype and get the management known for being trendy with the NYC and LA crowd.

Blames needs to go to their parent Conde Naste: “The company’s media titles attract more than 84 million consumers in print, 366 million in digital and 384 million across social platforms: Allure, Architectural Digest, Ars Technica, Backchannel, Bon Appétit, Condé Nast Traveler, Epicurious, Glamour, GQ, Pitchfork, Self, Teen Vogue, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Vogue, and Wired.”

Teen Vogue suffered from the same sales decline that hit all teen fashion magazines in the new millennium.[citation needed] Its single-copy sales dropped 50 percent in the first six months of 2016.[12][13] Beginning with the December/January 2017 issue, Teen Vogue began publishing quarterly, cutting back from ten issues per year to four issues per year.[14] The first quarterly issue focused on “young love.”[12]

On April 29, 2017, Elaine Welteroth was named editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue.[15][16] On November 2, 2017 it was announced Teen Vogue would cease its print edition and continue as an online-only publication as part of a new round of cost cuts.[17][18]


Sexuality has also been a topic in Teen Vogue’s expanded focus. On July 7, 2017, the magazine published a column titled, “Anal Sex: What You Need to Know” which author Gigi Engle described as “anal 101, for teens, beginners and all inquisitive folk.”[39][40] The column drew criticism from some parents for what they viewed as content inappropriate to the target audience of teenage girls.[41][42] In The Independent, J J Barnes also criticized the column as “bizarre” for focusing on male reproductive anatomy rather than female.[43] Teen Vogue’s digital editorial director Phillip Picardi defended the column, saying that backlash was “rooted in homophobia.”[44]

In the February 21, 2019 edition of the Eternal Word Television Network program EWTN Pro-Life Weekly, host Catherine Hadro accused Teen Vogue of promoting abortion and criticized the publication for failing to “acknowledge what actually happens in a late-term abortion procedure.”[45] During this same year Teen Vogue published a controversial editorial titled “Sex work is real work,” which earned criticism from sex trade survivors and anti-trafficking advocates.[46]

What “let”?

Unless you’re a fascist it’s impossible to stop them from reading it somewhere, somehow.

The best thing is to raise them right.

Can’t stop a 16 or 17 year old from everything.

my mom couldn’t stop me from anything by 15 after my pops died.

Granted, guys may be more of a handful, but again, parents do their best and hope some of it got through.

and YES I started to make up for torturing my mother by my mid 20s and still haven’t stopped so get off my back, i’m not going to hell for it!!

You right. You have to teach your kids when they are very young. Instill those values while you still have control of them. The day will come when they will venture off and be out of your control. Hope and pray they retain what you taught them.

and that value you teach CAN last a lifetime.

All joking aside, many of the values i learned from a GREAT guy, my pops, by 14 before he passed stayed with me for life.

Respect for women and the elderly, never touch a woman in anger, God is REAL and many others.

You parents that do your best are to be commended and i bet the kids turn(ed) out great.

teen vogue is complete trash, like so much that infects our society today: cosmopolitan, hustler, 2 and 1/2 men.

When I was a teen, I loved Seventeen Magazine. Recently I was in a doctor's office and saw a current issue. I picked it up to see how the magazine has changed. You can pretty much guess. They assume their readers are all feminists, pro-abortion, pro LGBT, Republican-haters, etc. Plus the magazine is really dumbed down from the way it was when I was young.

God help us, is all I can say.

I'm pretty sure at this point Teen Vogue is a parody site that exists solely off of rage hits (i.e. angry conservatives reposting their articles).
