    YF, the Times today had an op-ed advocating as strategy the shaming of teen pregnancy.

    I think you mischaracterize the op-ed. The strategy is already happening. He is evaluating it. And it sounds like maybe it's making a dent in the pregnancy rates.

    Shame is a difficult word to get around, but you know what, there is a whole lot to be said for making sure kids know this is a really big damn deal. And it's all too common that they are told otherwise, you can still go to college and have friends and have your life and let Grandma take care of the baby, etc.

    If they are concluding that the campaign is factual but mean, well, tough shit.

    No, he didn't. Read it again. Take the third graf out for a spin.

    And Richard V. Reeves, who possesses neither a vagina, nor ovaries, nor Fallopian tubes, is a fucking fucktard.

    I thought his comment sounded like the writer was making up the idea out of the thin blue air, not commenting on a strategy that was already in place. Maybe I'm misinterpreting.
