Sexting

Leave a comment

Reading 75 talks about Sexting. It states that “some law enforcement officers and district attorneys have begun prosecuting teens who created and shared such images under laws generally reserved for producers and distributors of child pornography.” Some teens between the ages of 12 and 18 talked about how sexting is a part of an experimental phase of teens who are not sexually active yet, others felt that sexting is part of a sexual relationship. Some girls also mentioned that they are sometimes pressured into it by a guy they like and is dating. Personally I feel that if someone wants to send pictures of themselves to the world then that is there business. I have never sexted no one nor will I due to the fact that I know that it can be spreaded within a blink of an eye. I think that teens need to think before they actually do send pictures of themselves to others. I think that they should have more respect for themselves then to send sexting pictures out.
