Twitter is in a FRENZY y’all!
T.I. was recently as guest on Nadia Moham and Nazanin Mandi’s Ladies Like Us podcast, and admitted that he takes his 18-year-old daughter, Deyjah Harris, to the gynecologist for a yearly check up…to make sure she is till a virgin. No, I am not making this up.
When asked if he had had the “sex talk” with his daughter he replied, “This is the thing, Deyjah’s 18, just graduated high school now and she’s attending her first year of college, figuring it out for herself. And yes, not only have we had the conversation, we have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen.”

TSR STAFF: Brianne D! @beedev_ ______________________________________ #PressPlay: #Roommates, now y'all know #TI wears a variety of hats as a business man, entertainer, rapper, and activist. However, one of the roles he plays best is his role as a father! Well, T.I. takes his daddy duties very seriously, so much so, that he says he attends gynecologist appointments with his daughter, #DeyjahHarris. ______________________________________ Tip sat with the ladies of the @ladieslikeuspodcast to reveal he has a direct hand in his baby girl keeping her goodies to herself. When asked whether or not he's had the "sex talk" with his daughters, his response was like no other. ______________________________________ "Not only have we had the conversation, we have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen," he says.

He then continued, “So I say, ‘Look doc, she don’t ride no horses, she don’t ride no bike, she don’t play no sports. Just check the hymen please and give me back my results expeditiously.” The rapper says he’s exercising his right as a parent to do what’s best for his child, but the internet is NOT having it and claims it’s an invasion of privacy and inappropriate, especially because she’s over 18.
Checkout some of the reactions on Twitter below:
1. Virginity is a social construct. It doesn't exist.
2. The hymen can break without sex. Your hymen can also still be intact after sex.
3. Men do not have ownership over female bodies, even if the man is the female's dad.
4. She's 18 and can do what she wants with her body. https://t.co/iVslFUlceK

TI she's 18. 🛑
1. You & the gyn are violating #HIPAA if they give you her med info w/o her consent.
2. Do you hold your sons to similar standards.
3. That's not your business as a #father or a man. It's her body not yours.
4. Vaginal sex is only one type of sex.
5. Do better.
