I’m sure by now it’s likely that you’ve read the now-famous? infamous? blog post called FYI (if you’re a teenage girl) Readers reactions seem to fall on opposite ends on the spectrum, with those who didn’t appreciate the post remarking mainly on her harsh words to teenage girls and her family’s slightly creepy method of going through their teenage sons’ friends’ social media posts and discussing as a family which girls were not wearing bras in their selfies, etc, Oh and the article was illustrated with photos of her shirtless teenage sons flexing on the beach.
My own thoughts on the article were a mixed of confused, amused, and just plain mad, but I thought that I’d bring to you some of my favorite responses that I think take various angles on the subject in a great way.
