Target Builder: Distributing naked photos of anyone when they don't want you to is a major dick move.


Sending naked photographs of yourself to someone else is a cretinously stupid thing to do, and anything which happens as a result is your own damn fault.

Clint_Torres: Police arrested Batista on Friday and charged him with cyberbullying.

This is horseshiat. The only way this will stop is if teens are charged with manufacturing and distribution of child porn. Anything else is just a slap on the wrist to them.


The girls send the image to the boys, who distribute them and are then prosecuted for sending them out.

Yeah it's a dick move on the part of the boys, but if you're serious about charging someone with the manufacturing of the child porn, then charge the girls for actually manufacturing the goddamned child porn in the first place.

Anything else is typical Jezebel, "men are ALWAYS responsible for any hardships women experience" inflammatory bullshiat. You don't get the classify something as victim-blaming when the "victim" is the one that produced it in the first place.

I realize I can't win, because the response still negates all personal responsibility on the part of the female. "Well those boys FORCED them to send the pictures because they said they would call them sluts and biatches in school otherwise."

keypusher: Meanwhile, Rowan County Sheriff's deputies say they were able to back-track an Instagram photograph of a naked 15-year-old girl to Juan Bautista, 17, a student at West Rowan High School.
Police arrested Batista on Friday and charged him with cyberbullying. He was later released on a written promise to appear in court and has since been suspended from school.

Guy seems like an absolute jerk, but whenever I see anything like this, I always wonder if the guy was actually bullying as opposed to just sending out pictures of naked girls.

Luse: I'm guessing that a majority of the guys that are saying that she should be punished would have no problem if she was the only one being punished and that the guy distributing the pics was allowed to get away with it.


You're guessing wrong.
If charges for distribution are brought up, both her and the boys should face them. She was the first one to distribute.
In addition she also produced the material.

If on the other hand she doesn't face any charges, neither should anyone else.

The law, at least in theory, demands that we be treated equally. To do otherwise is discrimination.


I fortunately came of age prior to the Internet being around to catalog my idiocy, but you sum up my thoughts very well.

I have to deal with a non-violent felony on my record from almost 25 years ago, every time I seek new employment. I have changed immeasurably from when I was 18, but I will carry that burden for the rest of my life.

A girl having her 15-year-old boobs in the Internet for all eternity is nothing remotely close to that boy being labelled as a sex-offender for the rest of his life, even though he was a minor when that occurred.

Personally I think neither of them deserve to have a permanent sexual offender record for these circumstances, but teaching children is the only thing that will reduce the behavior. Establishing permanently damaged "sexual predators" won't help anything.

Discriminating against who you brand with that indelible ink, becomes unthinkable in my mind though. If his behavior warrants that permanent blemish, then so does hers.

Latinwolf: Electromax: Pangea: Electromax: orbister: Target Builder: Distributing naked photos of anyone when they don't want you to is a major dick move.

Sending naked photographs of yourself to someone else is a cretinously stupid thing to do, and anything which happens as a result is your own damn fault.

You can shout that into the face of every 15 year old on the planet, but they're still 15.

No one is arguing that 15-year-olds aren't stupid.

I think the only real question is whether or not it is fair to hold the boys who forward the pictures to a higher standard than the girls who actually take the pictures in the first place.

It's absurd to me that the boys should be punished for sharing something that wouldn't exist without the actions of the "innocent" party.

I agree in principle, but also feel compelled to mention that the girls are punished in part merely by the action itself, and consequently being naked on the internet for the rest of time, whereas the boys really don't have any consequences aside from getting broken up with if they aren't punished by someone else.

It's a fuzzy line, but for a lot of people it's probably "hasn't she suffered enough already/the punishment of having your pics out there is worse than anything I could do" mentality. Basically let her learn her lesson that way, but the boys aren't perceived to have learned a lesson unless they see a negative outcome.

Really the mistake is trusting a 15-year-old with something that will exist forever and is not easy to get otherwise. But I'm sure she was positive it was True Love 4 Life.

But I was told that the police would only use resources to go after pictures of prepubescent children, rather than those who are fully developed and simply have not reached some imaginary threshold.

/next up, why going 57 in a 55 zone means you need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law

Now this is a battle that can't be won.
Some of them are "cyberbullied" into giving nudes, but the majority do it themselves because it's the cool thing to do.
While I was typing this message at least 10 teen girls uploaded nudes of themselves thinking it would be remain between her and the people she's trying to impress.

Everybody loves a sex scandal. Especially cops and feather-headed school officials. To them it's definitely not a waste of money.
Harsh lessons must be taught - it's the only way to satisfy those cravings for revenge.

Either "cyber bullying" is a much more serious charge than it sounds like or the prosecutors in NC have a much more relaxed attitude towards CP distribution than I would have expected.


I don't know the law over there but maybe they would have to prosecute the girl for production and distribution if they bring CP distribution charges against the guy.

Investigators said the unidentified girl originally sent the nude photograph to her boyfriend, but it somehow leaked to Bautista, who allegedly posted it to an Instagram account called "Thesehoes01."

I assume that she'll be prosecuted for Producing Child Pornography and Distribution of Child Pornography as will all the other 'girls' and 'boys'.
