Teen Vogue’s “Back to School” health and wellness guide does not promote basic health and hygiene so much as it promotes sex to young girls.
The teen magazine has developed a reputation for pushing risky sexual behavior and a solidly pro-abortion agenda on young girls. Its new “Back to School” series is no exception.
While Teen Vogue does suggest some great things like exercise equipment, healthy snacks, feminine hygiene products and even essential oils, it also encourages teens – this means girls as young as 13 – to check out vibrators, lubricants and condoms when they are back to school shopping. Even the main photo for the article is a close-up of a pink condom.
The Resurgent writer Susan Wright warns parents to be aware of the magazine’s agenda “before they buy that subscription, or allow this open sewer to invade their homes.”
In listing the “best feminine hygiene wipes,” young girls are greeted with this:
“Sex is fun, but it sure is messy. These wipes will be there for you when you’re finished, but can’t hightail it to a shower. They’re also formulated not to mess with your vaginal pH, keeping things happy until your next sex-pedition.”
That’s right. Your 13-year old child is being told how to take what is, in some quarters, called a “wh**e’s bath.”
Just casual fun for a casual age.
The magazine also promotes masturbation with several recommended personal massagers, or vibrators.

“Personal massagers are one of the best ways to let off steam with zero risk of STIs,” it tells teens.
It goes on to recommend several brands of condoms and lubricants and later a sex education “comic book” that “covers way more than just the birds and the bees.”
The magazine clearly has an agenda. Earlier this year, Newsbusters’ Katie Yoder discovered that Teen Vogue promoted abortion to teens more than 63 times in just January and February.
One of the most outrageous of these pieces was “What to Get a Friend Post-Abortion,” an article that sparked a huge backlash from the pro-life community. The magazine suggested a series of gifts, including coloring books, chocolates, a uterus-shaped hot water bottle, disposable underwear and an “F U-terus” pin — “so that when some rude jerk asks if you regret your choice (as if that is somehow their business), you won’t need to say a word.” Proceeds from the sales of the pin benefit Planned Parenthood, of course.
The article did not suggest anything to encourage pregnant teens who may be afraid and unsure about what to do, or advice for friends who want to encourage them to parent or consider adoption. It did not mention pregnancy care centers, maternity homes or adoption agencies. No suggestions of baby showers or diaper drives, offering to drive to doctors appointments or volunteering to babysit. It did, however, urge teens to volunteer at abortion clinics as a “gift” to the friend who just aborted their unborn child.
