In Montpelier, Vermont legislation is considering a bill that would LEGALIZE sexting between teenagers.
For those of you unfamiliar with the term "sexting", it is referring to teens and minors taking nude photos and videos of themselves and sending these files to each other over cell phones using MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service).
Lawmakers in Montpelier are considering a bill to legalize the consensual exchange of graphic images between two people aged anywhere between 13 to 18 years old. Passing along such images to others would remain a crime.
This is ridiculous, first of all, they don't seem to understand this is how most CP(child porn) is produced. There have been many cases where teens have been caught sexting each other and the only ones getting charged legally are the ones possessing it. There has been one case where a 15 year old girl was charged for making her own nude photos and sending it to another student. A lot of times when these students would receive the explicit content they would send it to their friends, then they would send it to their friends...or sometimes a girl might make a special video for her boyfriend, he keeps it, doesn't show anybody, but then he finds out she's cheating on him, what does he do? He broadcasts it on the internet for everyone to see(which will soon be traded w/ other pervs). It will spread faster than a Malibu brushfire. Take it from me, the big bad sex offender.
Bottom line, it's CP(child porn), it's illegal, end of story.
