Here's an excerpt:
"I don't think you should have sex with anyone unless you love them," Bieber says. When asked if he believes in abstinence until marriage, Bieber – who is reportedly dating fellow teen star Selena Gomez – seems wary: "I think you should just wait for the person you're...in love with."Doesn't sound too bad, does it? You should wait til you're in love. That's pretty nice. ...But imagine what the reaction would be if a female teen pop star (or actress or other celebrity) said the exact same thing. Imagine if Miley Cyrus said something similar at age 16. There'd be a whole huge slut-shaming scandal going on. Why? Because Bieber didn't say you should wait until you're married (like most of the abstinence crew usually preaches). And he didn't say you should wait until you're 'old enough'. He just said you should love the other person.
If Miley Cyrus had said something like that angry moms and dads would have been all over her for condoning teen sex out of wedlock. And to be clear, we're not suggesting that that's necessarily what Bieber meant by his answer (and we're definitely not saying there's anything wrong with that point of view either way) but you just know that's how the media would twist it.
Really think about it... Can you imagine if Jamie Lynn Spears had made a comment like that? Or Vanessa Hudgens? Or Taylor Momsen? Remember when a 16-year-old Momsen said in an interview that she wasn't interested in boys at the moment and her vibrator was her best friend? The reaction was not good... it was 'oh that's so inappropriate' or 'what a whore' or 'she's disgusting' but really... by advocating 'self-pleasure' she was advocating not having sex at age 16. Isn't that pretty much what these parents want their children to hear?
And can you even imagine Rolling Stone (or any 'adult' publication) asking a 16-year-old female celebrity about sex and abortion? About the closest you might've gotten was "do you have a boyfriend?" followed by "but you're a virgin, right?" A number of sexy starlets have discussed their virignity in interviews, vowing to wait until marriage - like Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson, and even Miley Cyrus - only to be slut-shamed later on when they finally do 'give it up'. (Back in the day, it was apparently part of Brooke Shields' contract that she remain a virgin!)
Abortion? I doubt they'd ever ask a female teen star that question, but she'd be fucked no matter how she answered.
