Sexting.

http://www.woai.com/news/local/story...oNveS6fxA.cspx

Sexting. What do you guys think of this? How do you think it should be dealt with?

I think sexting should have a new type of punishment to go with it. As the link above stated, teens who send "sexts" can be labeled sex offenders for life. I think this is wrong because as a teen, you tend not to see the repercussions of your actions and it shouldn't haunt you for life like that.

I think this is wrong. Teenagers should realise that they don't have to bow down to their hormone-filled body and look at this stuff. I'm a teenager, so I know how hard it is, but I manage to restrain myself.

I think that labeling them as a sex offender is wrong. I think 'Sexting' is bad, but they shouldn't put a permanent mark for something they do as a teenager. Most teens do things that are bad, but when they are older they usually mature alot.

But even if they do turn out to be very well mannered, mature adults, they wont be able to get a well paying job, because no one wants to hire a sex-offender, or anyone with a criminal record. Just because (like most teens) they screwed up.

Elle's got it,
"Sexting" is a form of expressing yourself through words
to your GF or BF, it's better than the actual thing some parents
may think, but the way its being carried out now,
is verging on the brink of becoming like "cyber sex".....

For all you little kiddies out there,


CLOSE YOUR EARS AND EYES



Making woohoo,
is supposed to be a sacred act between a Man (named Marv)
and a Woman (named Jane).

When the couple loves one another,
they express it through love.

And that love,
is what creates miracles
and in turn a nuclear family is born.


Sexting is not the most positive way to engage in passionate
expression with your loved one,
it just desecrates the sacred connection and symbolism
that the actual dance achieves......

Get it?

Now go and ask your mom and dad to tell you
bout the birds and the bees.

Rockn.

You must not get what sexting is. It's worse than cybering, it's actually sending pictures of your own nude body to another, which is not only morally wrong, but also illegal.

Only illegal if the recipient is under 18, has told you they don't want the pictures, etc.

But to me, this is like parking tickets. They can't give you points on your license because they can't prove you were the one who drive the car. They can fine you for allowing the car to be in that position, but since they can't prove you drive it, they can't put anything on your record.

Now, they can't prove you were the one sending these things on your phone. It could be someone else. So they can fine you, but they can't put anything on your record.

A sexting scandal recently broke in the area I live. Three thirteen-year-olds at a local high school became embroiled in controversy when it was discovered that one of them, a male, had filmed the other two, a female and male, engaging in oral sex.

I think the whole sexting phenomena is a product of two things: the sexual liberalism that is taking an increasingly prevalent hold on society; and the spread of digital communications. Teens are less cultured and reserved about their sexuality, and they're now capable of fuelling their sexual immorality through improved communications technology.

Punishment? Yes, less severe. And it shouldn't constitute child pornography. Such a judgement of the situation seems like bureaucratic loophole-ing and a poor response.

I think authorities need to mind their business and go look elsewhere for people to arrest. But yeah, this is more of a family issue if you ask me and if the parents disapprove, they need to cancel the phone account or cancel texting or do something about it.

Thank you.

Parents these days need to assume responsibility for their kids. Instead they blame public schools, television, rap music, video games, and ADD for their children's problems.

Get a grip, parents. If your kids screw up, it's because you did.
