Huge Victory! Chief Editors of Teen Vogue's Graphic "How to" sex guide for teens/tweens have Departed!

However, the Fight to Defend the Dignity of Our Children is NOT over.....We Need Your IMMEDIATE Help....Sign Our Petition!

Friends, we have some important updates to share, and as you read this, you will see why it is critical that you SIGN OUR PETITION to stop this madness,even if you've signed it initially.

But first, Huge Victory!! Since Enough Is Enough® (EIE) launched the "Say No To Teen Vogue" campaign in July 2017 calling out the national publication for its graphic “how to” guide on anal sex directed at its tween/tween readers, there's been significant change!

EIE’s online petition requesting Teen Vogue remove the article, "Anal Sex: What You Need to Know/How to Do it the Right Way, generated nearly 30,000 signatures going directly into the e-mail in- boxes of Teen Vogue’s and Vogue’s editors and Conde Nast’s Board of Directors calling for the dismissal of magazine editors and for a boycott of all Conde Nast-owned publications.

SINCE THEN ... the magazine ceased its print edition and its editor-in-chief Elaine Welteroth and its digital editor, Philip Picardi, responsible for the content, are no longer employed. Further, the New York Times recently reported deep financial loss for its publisher to the tune of $120 million.

Remember This?

Teen Vogue’s (former) digital editor, Philip Picardi, responsible for the horrific "sex guide" that stated, “This is anal 101, for teens, beginners, and all inquisitive folk,” responded to our campaign in atweet posting a photo of him kissing another male and shooting us the finger. 

He posted, “In conclusion, here’s my only reply I’ll be giving to any of the messages.” 

EIE's campaign went viral, grabbing the attention of leaders of nationally-respected family organizations who were able to join our efforts to "Say NO To Teen Vogue." However, the graphic article was never removed. Even worse, the magazine since UPDATED the article again earlier this summer, another slap in the face to all who expressed public outrage.

While the impact of the editors' departure cannot be overstated, our work is not done until this article, representing a blatant disregard for the innocence, physical and mental-well being of our children, is removed and the magazine is held accountable for exploiting the dignity and innocence of our youth. Period!

Friends, please, we urge you to take a moment and click on the image above and make your VOICE be heard. Targeting tweens and teens with graphic, inappropriate content suggesting they experiment in sexual activity of any kind crosses the line, and we won’t stand for it. 

Finally, we really could use your financial support to help #FundTheFight and keep the pressure on Teen Vogue. Please, won't you make a tax-deductible donation today? 

Thank you for standing with EIE to defend the innocence and the dignity of our children!
