When Sexting Becomes Revenge Porn
It's time law-makers step into 2014.
Revenge Porn is the 'new' thing. With 'sexting' becoming more and more common it's almost ridiculous to believe that naked selfie you just sent out is safe.
More countries are actually creating laws making 'revenge porn' illegal. At first it might seen silly that we need the government involved. Don't send out naked pictures of yourself to people you hardly know and you really cut down your chances of seeing your 'goodies' on the internet.
But there are situations where an ex whom you've had a long term relationship has used these revenge websites to get even. Even worse, naked selfies from a MINOR aren't that uncommon. There are even cases where people have had to change their name and move because of an ex making their life impossible.
The way we communicate has completely changed over the last 50 years. Should our judicial system change as well? It doesn't make sense to me that it's illegal to download a song off the internet, but it's almost impossible to prosecute someone for posting a pictures of an ex and ruining their life.
It's time to make some changes.
