An open letter to all under 18s on this sub: DO. NOT. SEND. PEOPLE. NUDES

Not your significant other, not your friend with benefits, and certainly not strangers on the fucking internet “But what if it’s someone I’m in a sexual relationship with? They already know what I look like naked” Doesn’t fucking matter, don’t fucking do it. You can’t undo sending someone a picture. “But it’s my body, so it’s my choice.” No it’s fucking not, it’s illegal. If you’re under 18, sending someone nudes is distributing child pornography, so don’t fucking do it. Realise that the person in the photo is a victim, even if it's them doing it. Because once a photograph has been sent, it can't be unsent. The risk of it being sent to other people/used as revenge porn makes it justifiable to make it illegal. At the end of the day it protects minors from their own stupidity And especially, ESPECIALLY, don’t send nudes to some random cunt you met on Reddit. Odds are, if someone on this sub is asking you for nudes, they’re not a teenager. IF YOU SEND NUDES TO A POTENTIAL PAEDOPHILE, YOU WILL REGRET IT. IF SOMEONE CONTACTS YOU FOR NUDES AND THEY’RE ON THIS SUB, CONTACT A MODERATOR. End of rant, don’t send nudes to strangers. EDIT: It’s been pointed out to me that advising people to post the names of their harassers or similar behaviour could lead to witch-hunting innocent people which is obviously completely unacceptable, so I’ve amended that part Also, some disagree with the hard stance and that’s completely understandable. The main reason for being as firm and hardline as this post was was to make people take it more seriously, although I stand by most of what I said. submitted by /u/Youreternalvengance to r/teenagers [link] [comments]
