In a series of tweets, Planned Parenthood on Wednesday has decided to school T.I. after making the sickening comments about taking his daughter, Deyjah Harris, to the gynecologist every year to “check her hymen” to make sure she is still a virgin.
Planned Parenthood posted a series of tweets explaining the rapper who loves to use big words that he should maybe do some research before he opens his mouth on terms such as hymen and virginity.
The first tweet read: “Idk who needs to hear this, but virginity is a made-up social construct, and it has absolutely nothing to do with your hymen.”

The organization added: “A virgin is someone who’s never had sex. But ‘sex’ means different things to different people, so ‘virginity’ does too. Many don’t care what it means or think it matter. Whatever you believe, the fact is you can’t tell if someone’s had sex by checking their hymen.”
The group went on to say: “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: YOU CAN’T TELL IF SOMEONE’S HAD SEX BY THE WAY THEIR HYMEN LOOKS OR FEELS.”
The college student has received an outpouring of love on social media.
One person said: “Your father has serious emotional issues that he needs to address where he feels the need to dominate and control woman. It’s not healthy. It’s your body do what you want with it SAFELY and responsibly. Supporting your WOMAN RIGHTS, ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ no man ever has a right to know about your body boo.”
Another social media user added: “You are so beautiful! You seem very humble, and I love that about your whole family 💕❤️ I hope all stays well with you and your family, young queen.?”
This woman told the college student: “Deyjah, you are worth more than your body. You’re smart, and you’re bright, you’re positive. You are a queen, your body, mind, and soul belong to you. I am so so sorry, and I am sending you all the positive vibes.”
Another woman had this to say: “He is NOT protective. Protective would be if he were taking her to the Gyno to check for ovarian cancer/cysts/hpv etc. he only wants to know she is “pure” because a woman to him is not worth it if she has already had sex. Get educated, please. So sorry for you about T.I. abuse and control of your body by bragging about getting your hyman exam. I hope you get a clearer understanding of his injustice to you. Please find a trusted therapist to talk about this precious child of God.”
Tiny Harris, who is Deyjah’s stepmother, has not addressed the matter; neither has Deyjah’s biological mother, Ms. Niko.
