What is the media’s fascination with this now apparently bullshit story about the Massachusetts high school girls allegedly having a pregnancy pact? Even if true, this is a national week-long story?

I have to think it’s some perverted voyeuristic urge brought on by the thought of teenage girls having sex. Reading the latest version of the story (linked to above) I also wonder if some folks aren’t perpetuating this for their own political reasons to highlight the ever-present problem of “pop culture” making girls want to have babies.

Update: Like I said, bullshit story.
