'Sexting' does not make you a sex offender
To be labeled a sex offendor for sexting, a combination of the words sex and texting, defies common sense according to a US professor.
'Sexting', the teen swapping of nude photos through cellphones, has caused some students to be listed as sex offenders, while others were accused of child porn. The photos ranged from that of a topless girl to a boy's private parts.
To be labeled a sex offender for sexting, a combination of the words sex and texting, defies common sense according to a US professor, reports AFP.
"A distinction has to be made between nudity and child porn," Peter Cumming, York University associate professor, said.
Cumming said that texting is just a modern twist on spin the bottle, playing doctor and strip poker. He argued that sexting is actually safer since there is no physical contact, ergo less pregnancy and STDs.
Instead of allegedly molesting and masturbating in front of Yasmien Kurdi, maybe Baron Geisler should've sexted her. Then again, he's no teen. Yasmien charged Baron with acts of lasciviousness and unjust vexation, but she is open to out of court settlement.
