The semantics of the law could put a dumbass teenager in jail for a long, long time. Basically, a 16 year old boy was in possession of pictures of his 15 year old ex-girlfriend. He is facing charges of child pornography because his stupid ass put them on the Internet. The question I have - If you're 16 and you possess pictures of your 15 year old girlfriend naked, should that be considered child porn? I'm sure if you have a daughter around that age you feel a particular way, but I'm pretty sure I had naked pictures of my girlfriend when I was around that age, so was I a child pornographer?
The kid is a ****tard, obviously and should pay some price for posting private pictures on the Internet, but the charge of child pornography just seemed weird. When I think of child porn, I think of some middle-aged man in his basement sweating profusely while staring at the kid's section of the JC Penney catalog.

Yeah, the law is incredibly stupid. When I was 18 I took nude pics of my 17 year old girlfriend, technically I was breaking the law, so I made her go and get them developed
That explains it, this took place in Canada!

The idea of child pornagraphy is disgusting and should never be tolerated. That's where the problem lies, as I dont consider this child pornography, but some people probably do.
But he should be punished for putting nude pictures of someone without their permission on the internet.

I never understood "child" pornography, naked people are naked people imo.
I would say it crossed the line when he posted them on the internet. As there the sick middle age men can get access to them. If he only had them for himself or showed them to his friends that's different.
"he created a web page that was made to look like the girl made it herself."
So as far as the average internet pervert is concerned, the kid is giving them free child porn. He is a dumb ass, but still he crossed a line.

What's even stupider is this one story I heard about a girl that was charged for posession of child porn, after she took some nude pics of HERSELF on her webcam. Sometimes the law is taken too literally

Do the crime, do the time.
If that was my 15 year old daughter, the safest place for him would be jail.
If you willingly pose for nude pictures, you're taking a risk. 15 is old enough to know what you're doingOriginally Posted by rinkrat
I'm not saying what the guy did was right, but it's ridiculous to think he should be in jail for this
why is it ridiculous? because he didnt obey the law? i agree, its somewhat saddening, but the facts lie where they lie, and in the end, he broke a law that was set up before he committed the acts.Originally Posted by thetopdog

"As far as drugs were concerned, all my bodybuilding heroes were on everything but roller skates."
In Memphis, it is illegal for a woman to drive by herself, unless a man is walking or running infront of the vehicle, waving a red flag in order to warn approaching pedestrians and motorists.
Technically speaking he did break the law when he took naked pics of an underaged girl, and posting them on the net wasnt exactly the smartiest thing he could have done.Originally Posted by galileo
I personally don't think it's such a big deal if a 16 year old kid takes naked pics of his 15 year gf to use as his wank material if she agrees to it,. But he definatly went out of line when he posted them on the net. God knows how many sickos there are out there that lust over this. For that, I think he should be punished along the lines of a fine or community service.
On the other hand if same sicko 50 year old does this, he should get the good old eunuch treatment as descriped below... [ooh minus the hot chilli sauce]
http://members.tripod.com/Barry_Stone/eunuchs.htmThe process for creating a eunuch remained relatively unchanged. The boy or man was strapped spread-eagled to a table. A thin cord was knotted tightly around his genitals, and, with a sharp razor, the organs were amputated. The wound was then cauterised by the application of either a red-hot poker or molten tar. He was deprived of water for several days to prevent urination, which could cause infection. Then he was forced to drink enormous amounts of water, until the pressure in his bladder punctured a hole in the layers of scar tissue. The fatality rate was as high as 90 %. Chinese eunuchs often also had their penis as well as there testicles, completely "shaved off", which was considered more effective. Using only hot chilli sauce as a local anaesthetic, the Chinese operation was one swoop, using a small, curved knife.

i think that was stupid, and besides I doubt he even thought he was breaking the law, I mean he's 16, I bet he thought child porn for him would have been like 8-12. but 15 yr old gf..come on...
posting on the net..yea that was stupid even if she was of age without her consent

The line of child porn should be drawn once one party is exploiting the other, but in this day and age, you have to get 'em pretty young to be exploiting. My brother knows some slutty, slutty girls - much sluttier than I ever knew in HS

We tend to think of Sisyphus as a tragic hero, condemned by the gods to shoulder his rock sweatily up the mountain, and again up the mountain, forever. The truth is that Sisyphus is in love with the rock. He cherishes every roughness and every ounce of it. He talks to it, sings to it. It has become the mysterious Other. He even dreams of it as he sleepwalks upward. Life is unimaginable without it, looming always above him like a huge gray moon. He doesnít realize that at any moment he is permitted to step aside, let the rock hurtle to the bottom, and go home.
