Girls Gone Wild...Boys Doing Time

I feel like no one is talking about this, yet it needs to be talked about, especially to our sons.

There is a growing trend of young girls taking nude pictures of themselves with cell phone cameras and sharing the pictures with their boyfriends. These boyfriends are then being caught with the photos and in many cases, are being charged with possessing child pornography. This happened at a local school. The boyfriend has a criminal record and the girlfriend is labeled a victim because the picture was no longer "private" and she had to transfer to another school.

As stupid girls take nude photos of themselves and pass them around via the internet or cell phones, more and more boys are coming into possession of these photos and using them for "pranks" against the girls. As stupid as these boys are, they're the ones getting into trouble, often with the law, while the girls get away with it....at least on a criminal level.

On top of this, we have the sexual freedom of so many youngsters. Young girls can go to Planned Parenthood for free, confidential birth control and abortions which tells us that 13 year olds can have sex. However, don't let your son be caught having sex with that girl, especially if he's 17 or older and she's younger than 17. All she has to do is get mad, or her parents find out and your son can be registered as a sex offender for rape.

My brother's next door neighbor is registered as a level 3 sex offender. Why? His wife's parents caught him having sex with their daughter when they were in high school. He was 17, she was just a year or two younger. That's rape because she was under aged at the time. The parents filed charges. They got married and live happily together with their children, yet he's haunted with being a registered sex offender now and all the reprocutions that come with it.

So, on top of unwanted pregnancies, STD's, and all the other risks of having premarital sex, now our teenage boys are being faced with criminal charges. Please, PLEASE guard your children and train them up in the way that they should go.

Sounds like the law is sending out contradictory messages. It used to be the case that it was okay for young men to "sow their wild oats" but not for young girls to get pregnant" now it seems to have swung to the opposite way round.

Yes! I have often argued this point.
