T.I. is very protective of his 18 year-old daughter Dejay but some people criticized just how far he is willing to go to ensure that she is still a virgin. T.I. admitted in a recent podcast that ever since her 16th birthday, he goes to the gynecologist with her yearly and asks the doctor to ensure Dejay’s hymen is still in tact. He explains his daughter gives the doctors consent to share her personal information adding, “And so then they come and say, ‘Well, I just want you to know that there are other ways besides sex that the hymen can be broken like bike riding, athletics, horseback riding, and just other forms of athletic physical activity,'” he said. “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.'”
Many people responded to T.I.’s statement saying it was uninformed, and an invasion of
his daughters privacy. Chrissy Teigen, Iggy Azalea and Planned Parenthood all tweeted out responses.
Azalea, who has had a dispute with T.I. as of late responded to a fan’s comment saying, “He has serious control issues with women in all aspects of his life & needs therapy.”

Some people think you can tell if someone’s had sex before if their hymen is stretched open. But that’s not the case.
Say it with us:

asking a doctor to check your daughter to see if she has been having sex is humiliating & sick af.
& you can’t even always tell by a broken hymen. you can break your hymen by hurting yourself on a bike seat.

This hymen talk is very strange and at the core of it teaches your daughters their bodies aren’t theirs. Don’t do that.
