Sexting and teens

This is my first thread via iPhone, so I can't really link and quote so feel free to do it as you will

should sexting be illegal? what kind of punishments should be in place? And for what ages?

It's legal for most teenagers 16 and up to have sex. In most states in america the age of consent is 16 as it is in Canada. Is this something with which we should try to stop? Is this something that can be stopped? Can we tell teenagers what they can and cannot do with their own bodies and what sexual expression limitations they should have?

I'm going to throw out some situations and you tell me whether it is wrong or a crime etc

17 year old married to an 18 year old. The 17 year old sends nude pics to their spouse, illegal? wrong?

same situation without marriage?

same situation with marriage but now one partner is 16 the other is 17?

a couple who have dated for two years, both are 16. They exchange nude pics? Illegal or wrong?

I was getting in "touch" with girls at like 13 so I can't really say they shouldn't, but in all reality, they shouldn't, lol.

My thinking is, if you pay for your phone bill, why not. Otherwise, i'm 99% sure your parents wouldn't approve, and they're the ones paying for your stuff.

A couple side notes somewhat related, I don't think you should be able to be married until 25, and have 2 kids max, lol. Solve our overpoppulation problem like China finally is doing.

No.

Sexting isn't really illegal anyway.

It's kind of a non-issue at this point.

They really are only trying to stop the pedophiles.

can is cause, taking away phones would work. We don't really have an over population problem in America. We have 350 million people, china has 2 billion+ and we have 1.5x the land mass?

Well.. Yea that kind of stops it but cmon we're america responsible parenting isn't our strong point

at the 3rd poster whom my phone didn't want to quote, it is laws for teens. The new laws I keep hearing about are like class 3 misdomeaners. When we make laws for pedos we tend to swing for the fences.. Which is fine by me

In my state is is legal barring certain criteria such as minimum age and age difference. Also one of the sextors can't be an adult to stop the pedos.

No one really cares too much about it and it's almost impossible to enforce.

True, but you see more and more people have 5-10 kids nowdays, which is just crazy. You gotta stop these things before they happen, or you'll end up like China and it's to late by then.

To the topic, it's illegal for teens to do alot of things, but enforcing it is impossible. It's up to the parents, if they buy there kid a cell phone, expect these things. Parents need to go old school, like Renegade said, and not get their kid a cellphone.

that's the thing I don't watch the news or read news papers and I've heard about teens and sexting a dozen times in the past week. apparently a lot of people do actually care about it and that's why they're making new laws and crap. it does seem like an overly unimportant topic to be everywhere, I just assumed people actually cared about this crap.

Couldn't scroll down on my phone to respond so ..

Well we could make it to where you have to pay a 5000 dollar tax per kid, and that pays for parenting classes and shit. two birds with one stone, and anyone who wants to have a kid and be able to take care of them could find 5000 easy. I'm not rich or anything and 5000 to have a child sounds like nothing.

Can't people just get their kids phones without the ability to send pics or something?
