…’Why Kids Sext’ Describes Nude Photos As ‘Social Currency’ Among Teens…

“In April, residents of Louisa County, Va., were shocked to learn of a sexting “ring” among the town’s teenagers. When Hanna Rosin asked teens from Louisa County High School how many people they knew who had sexted, a lot of them replied: “Everyone.” But what was originally characterized in the media as an organized criminal affair was soon revealed to be widespread teen behavior.

“I think we as a culture don’t know whether to be utterly alarmed by sexting, or think of it as a normal part of teenage sexual experimentation,” Rosin tells Fresh Air’s Terry Gross.”

“[The police] call the girls in and they think there’s something really, really wrong — something unusual and sinister happening right under their nose — that’s how the investigation starts. … But by the law any picture of a minor is illegal and so they just ask the girl[s] who they call in for interviews, “Well, do you know anyone else who has naked pictures on their phone?”

And everyone says, “Yeah! I know five people,” or “I know 10 people.”

And remember: This is a relatively small town so people are trusting the police officers. They all know each other. So then they call in five people and then they call in five people and then they call in five people and pretty soon the investigator has bins full of cellphones with pictures of naked kids that belong to teenagers. …

So they’ve moved from thinking this is sinister to realizing, within a few days, this is completely common.”

“On how these teenage girls felt about the boys seeing pictures of them naked

That’s what’s amazing to me that this is so common given what we all know to be true about teenage awkwardness. The girls would actually get around this. I mean, some girls are just into it. They look great, they look like the pop stars they see, they’re proud to send their pictures.”

Well…yes…

…Here we have another example of going straight to the source, of one of the sex abuse industries current pet hysterias…”sexting”…

…Yup…teenagers!

“100 kids in a high school, caught in a sexting ring”…

…As it turns out…they were into it…and it was their own thing…

The big issue here, is that some dirt bag published these pictures on a website…when they were expected to remain private.

“Sexting” is a home grown phenomena, created and maintained by teenagers [legal minors].

…It is not something which “pedophiles” are behind…despite that certain groups have created propaganda, which suggests otherwise.

…And, amongst teenagers…it is “completely common”…

So…legal minors are “victimizing themselves” by posing in, and creating, “child pornography”…

…Curious spin, huh?…especially in the face of raging, teenage sexual hormones…

You know…I want to be totally fair, and acknowledge that it is scummy for anyone to betray the trust of another…and I do think, something wrong happened in the case talked about…

…but it is ludicrous and inhuman, to fail in understanding that this is just teenage sexuality [and social culture], in the age of this type of technology.

It is despicable…that such a thing is criminalized.

I have to repeat myself again…and point out, that when left to their own devices…legal minors will, themselves, adopt and take over the “child porn industry”…

…because what they are doing…they like doing it.

Whether or not this deserves being called “child pornography”, is a whole other argument…But it’s good enough propaganda for the sex abuse industry…So, I’ll roll with their extremely broad definition, even if only to shove this reality back into their face…

…and expose what cretins they are.

It is time for this idiocy to end…I implore everyone…unite, and bring this tragedy born of intolerance and idiocy to an end.

Nobody should ever have their lives hindered or destroyed, because of others who wont tolerate their common and consensual sexuality.
