This is your daily reminder that Teen Vogue is “woke” trash.
Let me make this clear right up front:
I. Hate. Teen. Vogue.
Why loathe a teen magazine you ask? Let me count the ways… well, there’s only one really. it’s become a self-proclaimed “woke” magazine that isn’t even really aimed at teens anymore. It ain’t really about “teens” and it ain’t about what’s in “vogue” — it’s just a craptastic political rag.
The former teen magazine that used to publish articles on fashion trends, makeup tips, and how to tell your crush that you “like-like” him, has decided to take an overtly political turn. Guess which way they’re turning?
ClashDaily has reported on Teen Vogue‘s sharp left turn before. In 2016, the teen magazine posted an op-ed by Laren Duca (that’s the same Lauren Duca that tweeted a picture of a plane on fire and falling out of the sky with the caption “Cute pic of Trump getting tired of winning,”) that discussed how President Trump was “gaslighting” Americans. (Is it just me or does she seem to have a thing for fire?) Teen Vogue has railed against capitalism because it somehow causes poverty (which is completely inaccurate,) and the latest issue includes an article titled, “4 Activists Explain Why Migrant Justice Is Climate Justice.” They now have a “Politics” tab on the website.
The other tabs are, “Style,” where you’ll find the expected fashion and makeup tips, “Culture,” the area on the site for Hollywood star profiles and gossip, and “Identity,” which seems to be an homage to Third-Wave Intersectional feminism, or, as I call it, “complete and utter bullcrap.” This is the area of the site that you’ll find that they dive into social issues with a decidedly leftist view. Alongside an article about habits that help you fall asleep is an article about how Transgender and Non-Binary people used Drag to help their mental health. (I know, I know. I can hear the comments section already.)
As always, it’s when they step into the realm of sexual health that it all becomes a complete sh!tshow. They taught their target audience (which is what, 14?) all about anal sex, and they’ve said that biological sex doesn’t exist in some bizarre explainer video.
Now that everyone is talking about abortion, Teen Vogue is putting forward some advice to a reader that queried them about accessing an abortion. Specifically, a reader who wrote, “I’m 16, I’m pregnant, and I don’t want to be. I’m not sure if I’m allowed to get an abortion without my parents’ permission, but I’m really scared to tell them because they are both against abortion. What should I do?”
Never fear! Teen Vogue‘s Nona Willis Aronowitz is ready to answer the question!
She begins by recounting her own possibly pregnant incident when she was 15 and she was still afraid to talk to her pro-choice parents about it. Eventually, she did talk to her mom and got a prescription for Plan B. Aronowitz then says that she cannot imagine how difficult it would be to tell pro-life parents about an actual pregnancy “during a time in American history when the bodily autonomy of people with uteruses is under serious threat.”
Notice that she uses the Orwellian phrase “people with uteruses” oh, what, you didn’t like the Marxist-sounding term, “gestators?”
First of all, I’m here to tell you that you have nothing to be ashamed of. Accidents can happen even to the most careful among us. And it’s only logical that if teens are mature enough to become parents, they are mature enough to decide whether or not they want to give birth. Having access to abortion should be your right, regardless of your parents’ beliefs.
Seems to me that she’s got this completely wrong. If teens are mature enough to have sex, then they are mature enough to deal with all of the repercussions of sex, which includes children. There is no age where it is acceptable to decide to kill a child, let alone one growing inside of you.
Aronowitz then discusses how many of the pro-life people actually get abortions themselves because, in her experience, they’re hypocrites.
One thing I’ve learned while researching and reporting on these issues is that supposedly anti-abortion Americans often get abortions. They often help their children procure abortions. You know those activists who stand outside clinics holding signs adorned with Bible verses and pictures of fetuses? Even they sometimes get abortions…
…So no matter what your parents’ abstract views, they might behave far more tenderly when their own child needs access to abortion care.
If demonizing the parents’ pro-life views and painting them as (possibly) hypocritical isn’t bad enough, she goes full-on to “here’s how you can break the law.”
No, really. She discusses parental consent rules in states and then explains how they can be bypassed.
The process for a judicial bypass is different in every state, but in each case that it’s an option, it involves a minor testifying before a judge and receiving court approval to access abortion care without telling their parents. If you live in a state with consent or notification laws, it’s likely that a clinic can help guide you through this process. There are also organizations in particularly obstructionist states that offer more resources, like Jane’s Due Process in Texas.
Judicial bypasses take time — and abortions get more expensive, more complicated, and harder to access the later they happen — so the sooner you can start this process, the better. And regardless of whether your state requires a bypass, you can contact your local abortion fund if you need help paying for it on your own.

This is the new Teen Vogue M.O. — they are going to indoctrinate “teens” into their leftist worldview. Oh, and by the way, they’ll denounce people who defend not killing a baby as holding an “abstract” view and dismiss them as a bunch of “hypocrites” who know that when it comes to their own lives or those of their teen daughters, they’ll kill a baby faster than you can say Planned Parenthood.
This is only the latest in a series of Teen Vogue articles that shills for abortion. In 2017, it had published 63 abortion-positive articles by the end of February.
In 2017, the UK’s Guardian newspaper interviewed the magazine’s editorial staffabout their publication’s shift from a focus on clothing and make-up to left-wing politics. Editor Elaine Welteroth described Teen Vogue’s audience as “woke,” a current slang buzzword indicating opposition to perceived social injustices and sympathetic interest in feminism and identity politics.
“This is somebody who is sophisticated, conscious,” Welteroth said of her average reader. “We say ‘woke’ here. We’re a woke brand, and our readers are woke, too.”
But despite Welteroth’s pride in capturing part of what she called the “sweet spot” of the 18-24 year old market, the online magazine is still marketed to teens.

FYI, I’m not alone in my Teen Vogue hatred. Lauren Chen of The Blaze isn’t a fan either.
Two “women of color” agree that Teen Vogue is trash.
Thank you, Teen Vogue, for bringing people together.
This is one of those Angela Bassett and Gabrielle Union moments, amirite?
ClashDaily.com’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles how-to book:
In ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don’t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right. And having met his beautiful daughters, I know his philosophy works. As a strong-willed woman who thinks her daddy is the greatest guy in the world, I can tell you this is a must-read for every man who hopes to earn the same title. —-S.E.
