Sexting in society

Leave a comment

Media in modern society helps to spread a large amount of information much more quickly. We can imply type any words in Google, then numerous websites related to those words will come out. However, media is a double-edged sword. It can contribute to more convenient communication, but also give rise to potential danger.

With hundreds of information spread out, pornography may appear in front of some small children, who should not see pornography. Once the kids see some of the pornography, they will automatically think that it is normal to send nude pictures to other people. Some other issues occur, such as sexting, which means send pictures of one’s private body parts to another or sexual messages. Sexting may be not a serious problem between adults, but if it happens to young kids, severe consequences could happen. For example, if a high school girl sends a sexual picture of herself to a boy in the same school, the picture will be spread all over the school. She may not be aware of the consequence when she sends the pictures. But when she knows, it is already too late. Everyone in the school will discuss about this matter. The girl will be considered as ‘slut’ and isolated by other students in school. Also, she may be humiliated by classmates. This experience could leave a shadow in her life. She may suffer from humiliation all through high school lives. Furthermore, some of this experience would affect her future lives. Some company may not hire her for any position because people will often think sexing is not responsible for oneself, if a person is not responsible for himself, how could he be responsible for the company?

Anyway, sexting could affect a person’s life in many different ways. Avoid sexting, avoid trouble.
