Girls who behave this way often feel unloved and devalued by their fathers. They have low self esteem and seek male attention inappropriately. These parents, especially the stepfather, are clearly ignorant and have not sought professional help. This child is also at an age when privacy is paramount, thus this "shaming" will cause post-traumatic stress disorder in this child. This father needs to see a professional about his attitude about fatherhood. They are causing more damage and Jasmine's behavior is likely to escalate. I speak as a clinician (I am a physician) and a parent of a teenage daughter. I agree with Jasmine that this is "not love." By her comments I think she realizes that the world sees this sign only as admission of a dysfunctional family and a father, in particular, who does not love his daughter. Hang in there, Jasmine. Try to feel good about achievements in school, on the athletic field and with true friends
