Teen Pregnancy.
First of all, i'd just like to say, i myself am most definitely NOT PREGGERS.
I am, however, doing my coursework on documentary & representation, and chose to focus it on the BBC3 documentary - Underage & Pregnant; looking at the representation of teenagers in general (i.e. that we're thick, useless & easy), and then more specifically, the stereotypes & assumptions made surrounding teenage girls who fall pregnant.
The reason I'm posting this really is to find out What do people first think when they see a pregnant teenager? What kind of traits do you associate with them? What assumptions do you make? etc. I also want to point out that i'm not encouraging you all to be horrible and judgmental, but we all know that it's human nature to assume. Your thoughts about things like this will depend entirely on your own background and experiences, and nobodies will be "wrong" or offend me.
I really don't mind what you want to say about this, either your own feelings about the issue itself, or if you watched the documentary; what did you think about that? - was it bias or do you think they remained fairly neutral and presented the issue with sensitivity?

I'd really appreciate any input that you might have about this, it will be really helpful for me.

One more thing - if you've read any articles or seen anything similar, please let me know.

Thanks lovelies.
