      Wish to rant about that disgusting show. I hate it and I think it should be discontinued and stuff. Wholly and integrally. I think its an immoral show and very distateful. Whats your views on it? I've placed it in the debates and rants section, but yeah, thought it should be more in the television section.

      I've never watched it so can't comment on the programme itself.
      Maybe you should elaborate more on the actual show but being 16 and pregnant is a part of everyday life I'm afraid.

      Its a reality show about women 16 and under who wish to get pregnant and stuff. And or they're already pregnant and talk about it on the show.

      I myself was 16 when I first fell pregnant :)

      I have seen parts of this show and I must admit what it is based on I don't like much, it's about 16 year olds getting pregnant and trying to cope through pregnancy and parenting and stuff aswell as high school.

      Here is a trailer which kind of explains it :)

      Like I mentioned earlier, that's what MTV was showing, the hardships of being 16 and pregnant.

      for us it is, because of cultural differences, because Asians deem it not appropriate for teenage girls to get a baby.

      Well it's not like the show is glorifying it. I don't think all Asian cultures feel that way.

      I think you might find googleing the statistics quite enlightening as to how many 15-17 yr old Asians get pregnant.

      ok yeah, will do so. But yeah, its very surprising... that teenage asian girls would get pregnant, but you know what, they're going to get disowned by their elders or parents.

      How can a parent disown their own child ? sorry but they are not what I would class as good parents.

      we are very strict as parents and do not allow such things going on. Especially not having sex under 16. I had those rules laid out in front of me when my parents were disciplining me.

      You sure that's just your parents? I never had that problem, or know other Asians that had that problem.
