I ended up choosing to research sexting. It is a rather new phenomenon that effects teens and adults. It can ruin anyone's reputation or worse. Depending on state laws, children under the age of 18 caught sending nude pictures to people without consent is considered child porn. In some states being convicted of child porn can put someone on the registered sex offenders list for life.
I found a video of teens talking about sexting and laughing and asking the reporter if he wanted to see the pictures. I think this is crap. Like do teens not realize the severity of being on the sex offenders for life????
I then found a video of teens acting concerned about these issues. These teens want to make a difference. They understand how fast anything can go viral via the internet.
These videos and the topic remind me of our course theme that youth is a culturally constructed category. I hate to say it because of how inappropriate it is but sexting is almost a "norm" amongst our generation. Somehow it became socially acceptable to send naked pictures and unfortunately it has very big repercussions for offenders.
