      Two minors took private intimate photos of themselves, which the court ruled was child pornography. Child pornography is illegal because it represents the sexual exploitation of a minor. In this case the exploiter was the minor being exploited.

      One commentator noted that the same reasoning would make masturbation by minors the same as the rape of a child.

      Sometimes stupid should just be recognized as stupid. No need to make it law.

            The stories just keen on coming...

            "Girls suspended for saying 'vagina' in 'Vagina Monologues'":
            quote:

            CROSS RIVER, New York (AP) — A public high school has suspended three students who disobeyed officials by saying the word “vagina” during a reading from a well-known feminist play.

            The honour students, Megan Reback, Elan Stahl and Hannah Levinson, included the word during their reading of “The Vagina Monologues” because “it wasn’t crude and it wasn’t inappropriate and it was very real and very pure,” Reback said.

              I've noticed the law tends to be either all or nothing. There is often no common sense middle ground...

                  I'm guessing a translation error in the CFI software. I'll try posting the link again here:

                    What the silly sods do not realize is that they are proving one of the points of the "Monologues".

                        As the original story was concerning two "minors", and the "guilty" party was one of those minors...
                        Down here in Oz they don't prosecute minors in those kinds of situations, and I would have thought things were similar in the good ol' US of A..
                        Surely those politicians, lawyers and moral minorities who try this on, would only succeed in wasting a lot of public and private money and time, in the end - as there would actually seem to be little real chance of them achieving their desired results over the long-term ???

                            Basically, the majority opinion by Justice James Wolf stated that because a future law could be broken, they are guilty of allowing that opportunity.

                            It is interesting, as the article stated, that they can both legally have sex with each other, but cannot document it.

                            And an intersting decsision by Justice Wolf:Mere production of these videos or pictures may also result in psychological trauma to the teenagers involved.

                            They were not traumatied by the production, but they are permanently traumatized by the legal actions taking place. They are both being branded as child pornographers simply for taping themselves having sex! Which is worse?

                            This reminds me of a case about the same time as this case where a 15-year-old girl in Latrobe PA who took sexually explicit photos of herself and sent them to chat sites. She was charged with possession and distribution of child porn as well as sexual abuse of a child (which if I recall the logic, she was charged with that because others could use the images to groom other children. In other words, she was being charged with the potential crimes of others).

                            The authorities seriously need to go for the people who are truly hurting the children, not the children themselves.

                              I understand why the authorities want to discourage minors from distributing nude pictures themselves on the Internet. I am assuming she may have posed in sexually explicit ways also and this may have influenced their decisions.

                              The law has long had statutory rape. The concept is that minors can't consent to some things. It appears that the Florida court believes that minors can't consent to be photographed nude and then have the photos sent. CFI's Forums reflects a similar view.

                              If these kids had broken up, and it was with a lot of hurt feelings, what would the now ex-boyfriend do with those nude pictures? The court has a point to be concerned.

                              However, the charges in this case don't fit what was done.

                              It would have made sense for the parents and/or police explain to the kids what could happen. They should have been warned. It appears that people with good intentions are two heavy handed. This makes their actions harmful and look foolish despite their intentions.
