What do YOU think?

Is the show "Teen Mom" "16 and Pregnant" glamorizing teen pregnancy? Or does it do the opposite and show the hardships young mothers go through?

  • Neither. But it does seem to show that people will watch anything, no matter how horrible or inane, as long as MTV airs it.

  • I think it shows a pretty good depiction. Alot of those girls are in some shitty-rough relationships. Its really not all peaches n cream and it shows that pretty well.BUt on the other hand you have girls that are like oh if i get preggo i can be on mtv and get a paycheck, It doesnt work like that.

  • I think it does both. It depicts problems that teen mothers might face, while still in some ways glamorizing it. There are some really great moms out there that just happen to be teenagers. There are some really shitty moms out there who are well past their teens.

  • I think it sells an assload of Proactiv and Axe body spray, which is the real point anyway.
