Dear MTV and the Directors/Producers of “16 and Pregnant”:
I just saw this week’s episode, featuring a young couple from Draper, Utah who found themselves pregnant during high school. Thank you for the fact that she was not Mormon. I know, its silly and naive to think that this same sort of thing does not happen to Mormons both in and outside of Utah; of course it does. But you helped me avoid an unfortunate piece of my religious culture that I would rather ignore for the time being. Also, thanks for the fact that she attended a Catholic high school and so was not surrounded by a bunch of judgmental Mormon youth and their parents. That was helpful (for me) too.
That is all. In the name of Lady Gaga, amen.
