Must Be Something In The Water!


Teen girl charged
with posting nude photos on Internet

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A 15-year-old girl has been arrested for taking nude photographs of her self and posting them on the Internet, police said.

The girl, whose identity was withheld, was accused of sending out photographs of herself in various states of undress and performing a variety of sexual acts. She sent them to people she met in chat rooms on the Internet, police said.

Police seized her computer and found dozens of photographs stored on the hard drive. Authorities did not say how police learned about the girl.

She has been charged with sexual abuse of children, possession of child pornography and dissemination of child pornography. From USA TODAY http://www.usatoday.com/tech/webguide/internetlife/2004-03-29-child-self-porn_x.htm

Is it me, or is there not something really weird about these charges? For sure we don't want minors posting nude pics of themselves on the Net and helping to encourage pedos. But how, I ask, in the name of Bakunin can a person be charged with having kiddie porn when they are her own pics, that she took herself? How also can she be charged with sexual abuse when she did these things to herself? Does this mean that if a 15 year old spanks the monkey, he or she is guilty of sexual abuse. Doesn't this give the old Victorian notion of “self-abuse” a new and even more perverse twist? For me, this is just further evidence that the USA is run by complete and total lunatics.

The loonies in the US, and a few up here, are desperately looking for ways to wreck the Internet. And promoting this baloney about sexual crime being EVERYWHERE is part of the story. It's like those "Child Find" assholes who try to exploit fucked-up marriages in order to spread fascist ideas about "correct" family life.

I think you got a point there, Werner, never thought of it in that respect. For sure they would love to "do a China" on the Internet...

I agree, the state should never interfere with the preferences one may act out if they arn't hurting anyone else.

Its stuff like this that makes me think of social conservativism as immoral. Same for all the drug laws.
