T.I Doing A Yearly Check On Deyjah Harris’ Hymen Is So Disturbing And We Need To Talk About It

The hymen isn’t even a reliable indicator of sex.

In today’s episode of “Why are men like this?” 39 year old rapper T.I just revealed on podcast Ladies Like Us that he takes his daughter Deyjah Harris to a gyno every year to check her hymen.

Yes, we’re serious.

He told the podcast hosts that every year, after her birthday, he forcibly takes his daughter Deyjah Harris to a gyno where he gets her hymen checked to ensure that she’s still a virgin. He bragged that as of her most recent birthday when she turned 18, her hymen is still intact.

Um, WTF? How Is That Okay?

Well, it’s really not. First of all, there’s the obvious fact that Deyjah is an adult woman who can do what she wants, and we don’t exist in the 18th century. On top of that, she clearly doesn’t have a choice in sharing her results with her father, even though at her age she has the right to medical confidentiality.

For some reason, T.I openly discussed their doctor expressing concerns over Deyjah’s privacy and the legal issues around giving him the results of her test.

“I’m like, ‘Deyjah, they want you to sign this so we can share information. Is there anything you would not want me to know? See, Doc? Ain’t no problem.'”

If it wasn’t gross enough that he essentially bullied both his adult daughter and the doctor into signing away privacy rights that he’s not entitled to, he also mocks the doctor’s attempts at explaining how unreliable hymen testing is.

Is Hymen Testing Even A Legit Thing?

No, it’s not. It’s been widely condemned by medical professionals as arbitrary, unreliable and pointless. Hymen testing doesn’t actually tell you if someone is a virgin – many sexually active women have intact hymens, while other girls who aren’t sexually active but have engaged in some physical activity can have a stretched or torn hymen.

Even the World Health Organisation denounced it as  “a violation of human rights.”

Deyjah Harris’ gynaecologist seems to know this, as T.I explained that the doctor told him hymens can break in many non-sexual ways.

“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,'” T.I 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.'”

Obvs This Got Huge Backlash, And GOOD

The internet has exploded with concerns for Deyjah Harris, and also the fact that T.I feels he is so entitled to his creepy and disturbing behaviour that he can brag about it to the public. What kind of society allows and normalises that behaviour?

On top of that, T.I has previously expressed that he doesn’t hold this same standard for his sons, and that he’s okay with them having sex whenever the time is right. He seems to only control the sexuality of his daughters.

People were also concerned about what would happen to Deyjah Harris if her hymen was ever found to be torn or stretched.
