What really offends me is that she put so little thought into what she did, with no consideration of the consequences, and she wants to march around the classroom like some kind of hero and role model to her peers.

SHE didn't do it all by herself.

I can see your point of view and I do agree to a certain extent; I agree that young girls have too many role models already in the world who make it seem like being a pregnant teenager is some kind of great accomplishment.

But since I'm feeling a bit peckish today (I know, right?!)...I do hope it's just me reading into your post the tone of "SHE gave so little thought to what SHE did, and SHE wants to march around" yadda yadda.

Then again, me being all judgey-judgey about your tone doesn't help the situation any more than any or all of us on the board being all judgey-judgey about the girl's predicament. So there you go.
