David Baddiel had the perfect (NSFW) last word on rapper TI checking his daughter’s hymen
You will no doubt have seen the story about rapper TI – real name Clifford Joseph Harris Jr – who revealed this week that he takes yearly trips to the gynaecologist with his daughter, now 18 years old, to “check her hymen” to make sure it’s “still intact.”
Outrage as US rapper TI says he has daughter's hymen checked annually https://t.co/2dlE8F03yt

And it prompted no end of outraged responses, as you would imagine.
Even if Deyjah wasn’t 18 what TI is doing is a complete invasion of privacy. This ownership that men think they have over their daughter’s bodies is disgusting and creepy as fuck. They’ll do this while simultaneously patting their sons on the back for their sexual advances.

I’m grossed out that “she’s 18” is trending because
A) TI is abusing his grown daughter and telling the whole world
B) 0-14, 15, 16, and 17 year old girls shouldn’t have their dads checking their vaginas? How about that?

TI going to his daughter’s gynecologist appointment is the embodiment of men taking up too much space.

the TI stuff is abusive, full stop. an adult woman, daughter or wife or ANYONE, does not owe sex to anyone and she does not owe disclosure of her sexual activity to anyone. this is controlling behavior and anyone who has been in an abusive relationship/family knows it.

But probably the best response was from David Baddiel, who surely manages to say it all with so few (occasionally NSFW) words.
I wonder if TI himself gets a hymen check, as he's clearly a cunt.
