I can't believe Arizona passed a anti-sexting law.

    Really? You just turned a private behavior between two teenagers into a misdomeaner.

    The first time was because it got watered down on three different ballots and when they fixed it it got passed.

    Its inviting the government into a 'private sphere' behavior that only society should handle on its own and turning it into the government's business.

    Here is a hypothetical situation. A father gets a notice in the mail that his son is charged with a misdomeaner because he got hot sex texts from five hot girls. The father, who is kind of sexist, doesn't mind so much because he is realizing his son is a stud so normally he wouldn't care but the government comes along and does. You are kind of removing the personal choice from the parent to the state about how a child is to be raised.

    Don't get me wrong, I think this behavior is really bad but should be handled by the community between the people.

    let me give you a hypothetical. a 13 year old girl decides to send a 14 year old boy a nude pic of herself via text. the boy decides to send it to sall his friends because, well because he's a 14 year old boy. the boy's dad is a bit of a sexist so he thinks it's no big thing until the cops show up at the door and arrest his son for trafficking in child porn which is a felony. the boy is convicted and now the the 13 year old has to register as a level 3 sex offender for the rest of his life. seems to me this law is an attempt to make the punishment appropriate to the crime.

    here's one case, there's literally hundreds

    When someone is branded a sex offender for life because some 13 year old bimbo decided to text him a nude photo and, being 14, he shared it then you know that something is messed up. With that mark upon him he will likely never go to college and struggle to ever get a job, and he's only 14 years old.

    I KNEW they were a bunch of closet big government lovers who thinks the police belong in our bedrooms!

    Tell the girl that's what she gets for sending her picture around. That way she learns a lesson she'll have to remember in this digital world.

    If an adult sends a pic of someone who is obviously a minor back and forth punish the adult.
