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. Its single-copy sales dropped 50 percent in the first six months of 2016. Beginning with the December/January 2017 issue, Teen Vogue began publishing quarterly, cutting back from ten issues per year to four issues per year. The first quarterly issue focused on “young love.”
On April 29, 2017, Elaine Welteroth was named editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue. 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.
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.” The column drew criticism from some parents for what they viewed as content inappropriate to the target audience of teenage girls. In The Independent, J J Barnes also criticized the column as “bizarre” for focusing on male reproductive anatomy rather than female. Teen Vogue’s digital editorial director Phillip Picardi defended the column, saying that backlash was “rooted in homophobia.”
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.” 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.
