Every article I have read so far regarding disciplinary action in these cases has been accompanied by the usual (if predictable) comment sections full of "boys will be boys" commentary...much of it, stating that verbatim.

It was time for a long talk with my son about the consequences of possessing child porn].
Those girls could also be charged with distributing child porn, since they were creating and distributing pics of themselves and distributing them to underaged boys. So if charges are brought forth, it shouldn't only be the boys getting charged.

Gratification of the ego. Sharing selfies is a form of attention-seeking.

But this is the military so this won't happen. Just like what happens when a woman files a false rape charge against someone else and NCIS finds out that it's false. They hardly ever file charges against the woman because they "don't want the appearance of going after rape victims", and yes I have seen that first hand.

But they did enlist knowing that there were moral standards expected. So... nobody's going to just shut up because these people decide they don't want to honor their commitment. And especially if the PC cops decide they want to dispense "Just-US" kind of justice and only punish the men who look at the pictures and not the women who produce the pictures. They are being the worst kind of morality police: SELECTIVE morality police.

Sounds like the war on drugs in a lot of ways.

My surprise is they apparently did not post nude pictures of male soldiers. Some of those guys are really hunky.

While I would never post someones naked picture and don't agree with them doing it, I'm not too concerned about this. If some woman lets me take a naked picture of her then what I do with it is my business, the picture now belongs to me. I would never want a naked picture of me floating around the internet so I never have and would never let anyone take a naked picture of me. If I allow naked pictures of myself to be taken I can't then be concerned that others are seeing them.

We have sissified the military with all this PC crap. Some guy or girl lets someone take naked pictures of them it is because OTHERS want to see them naked so don't get upset when others are looking at them.

If the military wants to address it then they should do so but it should be done quietly and not turn it into a PC political show in the media and with the public.

posted similar view- grandstanding politicians grilling General Officers over something nearly impossible to control....as I posted, even Fed Employees who work for Senators and Congressman are posting online or surfing illicit websites under their noses on gov't computers.....we have bigger nuts to crack (ISIS, N. Korea, Iraq)...
