You see stuff like this pop up every now and again like the 17 year old girl who sent pics to her teacher and ended up being the one arrested.
But I would like to remind everyone that these laws were made before sexting existed, So the reason for this problem is because of ancient out of date laws that our leaders have been too lazy to update.

Pedophilia is an attraction to prepubescent individuals. Prepubescence ends at around 13.

This is why extensive sex education is needed. Then there'll have less of this going on. I've heard of a case where the police wanted to investigate a teen for sending a picture of his genitals to a girl (same age as himself). For evidence in order to prove the picture was him they required the teen strip naked and took a picture of the boy's genitalia themselves. How could such a thing be legal?

Meanwhile in the UK

A boy who sent a naked photograph of himself to a girl at school has had the crime of making and distributing indecent images recorded against him by police, the BBC has learnt.
The boy, aged 14, who was not arrested or charged, could have his name stored on a police database for 10 years.
The information could also be disclosed to future employers, his mother said.
Police said three children were named in a crime report, but it was not in the public interest to prosecute.
The Criminal Bar Association said the case highlighted the dangers of needlessly criminalising children.
The schoolboy, who lives in the north of England, told BBC Radio 4's Today Programme he took the naked photo of himself in his own bedroom.
He then sent it to a girl from his school using Snapchat - an app which deletes direct messages within 10 seconds.
However, before the image disappeared, the girl saved it on her own phone and it was then sent to other pupils at the school

Ban the law about yourself with your own choices in it about yourself.

You have my pity. Your government is nearly as sick and corrupted as some african dictatorships.

So that raises the issue of high school gym class. Where everyone is required to shower afterwards. Gender separated sure, but naked underage minors in the same room would be considered criminal then.

It's not about corruption. It's just the state says one thing while the federal says another and there is a weird gap between the two that no one has bothered to fix yet.

Probably they just need to adjust the law for pornographic images to be whatever the age of consent is. So once the state says you're not a minor it's all free game within that state.

Although on a side note this is why people shouldn't just cut lose and do stupid shit the moment they aren't a minor. Until you're 21 and you're legally able to do anything adults legally do the law gets a bit weird at times.

I was more generally speaking. This case is relatively harmless in comparison to other stunts your government pulled off. Everything is done so intricately and, most of the time, at the average citizen's expense. One simply has to wonder what incompetent, unworldly clowns are in charge.
