It would appear from the pictures on the internet, facebook, cell phones and other electronic media, that teenagers allowing themselves to be photographed naked, seems to be the norm. Once a picture hits the Internet, it is out there forever. It is not about the age of consent that I question... it is about my wonder in a 16 year old not seeing the stories of others that were exploited and still they do it.
This incident would be sick if a 60-year-old man took a naked picture of an underage girl while he was creeping around the house in which she lived. Or just a peeping tom exposing pictures of underage children or adults in general. However, the first incident was of a boyfriend exposing pictures of his, then, girlfriend. Now, the only crime I see is that he is 19 years-old, and she is 16-years old. By law that is statutory rape, even if she does allow him to be with her. The fact that she allowed him to take a picture of her while naked, I see no harm. The fact that he exposed the pictures on the internet, I see no harm. Is it wrong? Yes. But she allowed him to do it. If in those pictures she was posing, smiling, laughing, etc., she wanted her picture taken. And after the pictures were taken, she risked them being exposed. You can’t trust people. The phone or camera could have gotten in the wrong hands and from there the pictures could have been exposed. I feel sorry for the girl that this has happened to her. But if you don’t want to be seen, don’t give people something to look at.
