#RapperTI says he goes to the gynecologist with his daughter to 'check her hymen' - what a misogynistic SOB! She's 18 and an adult but he still holds her prisoner to his #MedievalMindset https://t.co/A6RSMivnZt

Good evening. Not only is checking your daughter’s #hymen disgusting, abusive, misogynistic and invasive, it’s also a complete waste of time. Linking articles that explain why. Stop worrying about girls’ virginity and worry about how their fathers and partners treat them.

Female virginity (intact #hymen ) can not be measured by ANY test administered by a gynecologist. Especially if a lady is into sports. Idc what anyone says. I wish to gawd I could see a convo about enforcing male virginity for a once. Why do you all keep doing this to my TL?

Buzzfeed reports TI as saying, “Right after her birthday, we celebrate, then usually like the day after the party, she’s enjoying the gifts, I put a sticky note on the door: ‘Tomorrow. 9:30,’ ”
He then revealed that the doctor asks his daughter, Deyjah, to sign a waiver so that he can see the result of the examination.
As per the report, TI further added, “So we’ll go and sit down and the doctor will come and talk, and the doctor’s maintaining a high level of professionalism,”
“He’s like, ‘Well you know, sir, I have to, to share information’ — I’m like, ‘Deyjah, they want you to sign this so we can share information. Is there anything you would not want me to know? See, Doc? Ain’t no problem.’'
