Sexting slut

And that really denies the reality that teenagers are sexting. And it's not just a couple of them. That's one of the many provocative opinions shared by Amy Hasinoff, a CU Sexting slut communications professor and the author of Sexting Panica soon-to-be-published book that casts a critical gaze on the legal and social approaches to dealing with the growing of young people who sext. And Hasinoff thinks many, if not most, of them cause more harm than good. It's not really about why people sext or who's doing it or how often.

It's about how sexting is constructed as a social problem and how a moral panic has been created about it. People are responding to a perceived social problem in unproductive ways that may make the problem worse. Hasinoff breaks down the stop-teen-sexting techniques into four basic : criminalizing sexting, promoting abstinence, encouraging parents to use surveillance or monitoring techniques and blaming technology for facilitating it.

From a criminal perspective, "sexting can be treated as child pornography, which is a really harsh crime to be charged with and the penalties are huge," Hasinoff notes. You can be sending a sext to your partner with consent and be charged with child pornography — and then, if your partner sends it to friends or so forth, that person can be charged with child pornography, too.

But in the first case, sexting slut partner is presumably happy to get that image, and in the second case, the person is maliciously violating the first person's privacy. The difference in these intentions is key, Hasinoff feels. And studies have shown that about 30 percent of teenagers sext.

So we're talking about something sexting slut essentially normal for about a third of teens and turning it into child pornography. For Hasinoff, the laws become even less defensible when they're compared to those governing underage sex. So teens can legally have sex with other teens if they're covered by these laws, but they can't take a photograph of each other without it being illegal. And when a second person's privacy is violated, there's nothing they can do about it, because reporting the violation opens them up to prosecution, as well as slut-shaming by peers or parents grounding them.

They're implicated and blamed by something done to them. And with sexting, it's even worse. She sees abstinence as a similarly ineffective method. That in higher rates of STDs and pregnancies. Pointing the finger at electronic devices is equally counterproductive, Hasnioff argues.

But when people have sexual relationships, they're obviously going to use their phone as part of it. That's the way we communicate now.

And blaming the phone overlooks the harm that sexting can do, a lot of which is tied into double standards in which women are viewed as sexual objects and men as sexual subjects. Especially in high schools and small communities, an image can be passed around among peers, and girls can be shamed and humiliated in ways that predate sexting by hundreds of years. But they're really slut-shaming suicides. Sexting may have precipitated them, but it's not the cause. The sexting slut are the crazy social norms that view sexuality unfairly. What's a better way to sexting slut with teen sexting?

Hasinoff suggests that "we focus on privacy in terms of privacy norms. And the privacy issue has broader implications beyond this study. The pace of technological development has moved faster than our privacy laws have developed. In the United States, we've historically leaned more toward free speech than privacy, whereas in Europe and other places, they tilt more toward personal privacy. I think with digital media, we have to rethink some of our investments in free speech and consider how we can protect that, but also protect individuals from privacy violations.

In addition, she continues, "we need better education about consent and how that applies to people in sex acts, as well digital sex acts. That's a key way we should be thinking about it, and thinking about the way it's criminalized — which is so weird. For more information about Sexting Panicdue for release on February 28.
