Jamie-Lynn's pregnancy has eclipsed Ashley Tisdale's new nose

Britney Spears' little sister Jamie Lynn is pregnant. Okay, fine. But her employer, Nickelodeon, issued this statement:
"We respect Jamie Lynn's decision to take responsibility in this sensitive and personal situation. We know this is a very difficult time for her and her family, and our primary concern right now is for Jamie Lynn's well being."
"Take responsibility"? I think that sounds a lot like saying she needs to be punished for having sex, and that women who have abortions are "irresponsible."

When did Nickelodeon turn paternalistically weird?

Update: I just discovered that Feministing wrote basically the exact same post twelve hours before I did. There ought to be some gaydar-type word for picking up on this shit. Misogyny-dar sounds terrible. If Nickelodeon is being a big corporate douchebag, can I call it douchedar?

You don't have to be irresponsible to not take on responsibility. One of the main reasons I, for example, don't want children is because I don't want that kind of responsibility, but as long as I don't impregnate a woman I'm not irresponsible, either. Acting irresponsible would be to have a child and then run away.
