Sri lanka sexting
But at the same time, people tend to blame girls for that problem.
That is not unique to sexting, it’s a problem for how we think about sexual violence in general.
Whether it was consensual or coerced, the girls sharing nudes have not done anything wrong.
No girl should be punished for the actions of someone else, and yet it is routine that those subject to this gross violation are also held responsible for it, mirroring the broader response of society that asks what she was wearing when she was raped.
Then imagine what it’s like to be a young woman walking through the corridor at school with no clue who has seen your naked picture, and how violated and vulnerable she must feel.
As with other forms of sexual violence, girls who have experienced image-based abuse can self-harm, experience suicidal thoughts, and develop anxiety and depression.
We tend to worry about teen sexuality in ways we don’t worry about adult sexuality and we tend to worry about girls in ways we don’t worry about boys. We’re worried about girls and we want to protect them from being victimized because sexual violence against girls is a real problem.Some girls who ask their teachers for help have ended up being asked to leave school for sending nude pictures, others have been forced out through bullying and shaming.The reality across many parts of Scotland is that this is a phenomenon that is disrupting girls’ right to education and their ability to live their lives free from fear and abuse.But what we should be worried about are the problems caused by people who distribute sexy photos without their creators’ consent.Hasinoff also clearly notes the hypocrisy of online privacy: We have strong laws protecting companies against pirating and sharing of movies, books, and music, but we’re quick to blame individuals when their private personal information is stolen and disseminated online.
