To be honest, living in Croatia is much more fun than America. You'll not get arrested and killed that easily here.

Yeah, I get the idea of the possession of child pornography is a problem, but of himself.. they're kinda reaching here.

So by that logic, two minors having sex could also be considered underage sexual activity, which is against the law, which can jail them too?

17 is the age of consent in most places in the U.S., and many kids unfortunately take nudes before then. But as long as they don't SEND them to anyone, especially an adult, I don't see the inherent harm in them keeping them so long as nobody stumbles across them. Actually- in fact, most kids who take nudes for themselves or whatever just delete them later.

As long as they're not sending them to anyone of age it's really not worthy of an arrest. Teenagers are stupid.

Laws surrounding these things are full of inconsistency and grey areas. From the eyes of the law, anyone under 18 (though really it should be more along the lines of early-mid 20s considering the reason is to do with not being mentally developed) is mentally retarded.

Technically yes. The age of consent in the UK is 16. If two minors are found out having sexual intercourse and one parent reports it then they get in trouble. It's gender biased though, the boy most likely will be charged for statuary rape and can end up on the sexual offenders register. I've actually heard of cases where this has happened.

Actually, yeah, we do.


The State has an interest in keeping people from doing dumb shit when that dumb shit ends up being a burden for the State when it has to sort out the mess, or the public suffers the consequences of that behaviour.


Laws against the proliferation of obscene materials such as the ones in question are about keeping those involved from being blackmailed, harassed, or worse, as well as keeping them from having a dumb mistake made when a kid from being something which defines the person going forward (and harming the ability of the individual to become integrated into society, the workforce, or the marriage marketplace), AS WELL as keeping such materials from being available to deviants and enabling their own harm.



But please, don't let me keep you and others from huffing indignantly over these things.

Why do people keep saving their/partners nudes on their phones or emails? It's.. so silly.

So in order to protect people from dumb mistakes that will define them going forward, we will punish people's dumb mistakes by making that mistake define them going forward (and harming the ability of the individual to become integrated into society, the workforce or the marriage marketplace)...Isn't this just the government becoming the exact thing that they are trying to protect people from? Don't you think that is just a tad backwards?

While there should definitely be a review of the laws as they currently are to consider the exact nature of the offense, I doubt that the attitudes displayed here would be any different regardless of any amendments to current law. It's a fundamental misunderstanding of the role of the State and of Law.

So you are telling me the best way to do that is let the world know that you took a picture of yourself naked ? With a world full of hackers huh ? And sorry but be young or old, if I want to take a picture of myself naked is nobody business. But hey if you want to encourage a bunch of old adults to look a the picture of a naked male 17 year old. Please go a head. I am sorry but the same fail logic of I don't agree with what you do with your body so let have bunch of people look a the picture. I am super sorry but this a case of I don't agree with your morals young one. So let me be even more immoral and humiliate you. To prove how wrong you are by being even more wrong myself.

Now I challenge you to make a argument has to why somebody should go to jail for having a naked picture of him/her/self.

I think that the laws need to been updated. They need to get with the times.
When these laws were made every single kid/teen didn't own a moblie phone with a camera on it.
Lets be honest here, kids will be kids. There has been countless cases along these lines across the world and kids will be kids, they will make mistakes and think that they will never get caught.
This shit happens here in Australia also.
Its just ridiclious that teens that are having sex and are "kids" themselves can get done for producing child pornography and labled as a sex offender for the rest of their lives.
Time for laws to be modified.
Its not like they are starting up web rings and sharing and selling child pornography.
Kids will be kids and how can it be legal to have sex but not take a picture of yourself or send a picture to your partner?
Yeah sending nude pics is not the smartest idea but i know if i had a camera phone as a teen o would have loved that shit.
Even adults do it and later regret it.
Kids will be kids and especially drunk and high kids.
