I am just curious as to how sexting laws became so black and white

But this shouldn't be news, even if the case is being fought

Man, this must be a regional thing!?


"softcore porn' to us growing up, was just 2 people having sex, but they didnt show the genitals, they still showed the breasts, rear ends, etc, but not the actual genitals of either person.



I have never heard a picture of a naked person called 'porn' in any sense, I think its a very long stretch to call it porn.

Well blame the sexualization of nudity done by the porn and erotica industries

I'd find it difficult to accuse a parent who takes a video of their kids in the bath of producing 'soft core' porn.

Sending out this material via text or social media can absolutely end up hurting the minor. The way things spread and go viral, it could damage her reputation at a minimum or much worse.

It's not something to shrug off like "kids will be kids" as some of the posters at the beginning of the thread seemed to be implying.
I'm pretty sure that a criminal conviction will hurt a minors reputation a lot more then some nude pictures will.

I have never been arrested for anything in my life. But if I were growing up today, I'm sure I would have a lengthy rap sheet. Young people today are going to prison for stuff that wouldn't even have been illegal 20 years ago. If we keep making new stupid laws like this, it will become impossible for anybody to not have a criminal record. Which seems to be the goal. To create an entire industry devoted to locking up American citizens. In what is supposed to be the freest country in the world. Yeah, right, what a joke. We lock up more people, then any other country in the world.

You can always tell when people post without reading the accompanying article.

"Any lawyer" won't "be able to get this charge dropped pretty easily" because she's already been prosecuted, received a year's probation...and the state COA already ruled.
