Is it bigotry to criticize Jamie Spears for getting pregnant?
History shows that Americans are perennial bigots who combine their bigotry with airs of righteousness. In the United States, childbearing at age sixteen was once common, respected, and dignified. Today, an aura of hostility has been directed at teen pregnancies, with emphasis on abatement. At the same time, the average age at menarche has fallen compared to times in which pregnancy at sixteen was widely accepted as normal. It should also be emphasized that teen pregnancies are some of the most important pregnancies in the world. Many Americans alive today were teen pregnancies.
