An interesting article

Why this video?

Early on in the story, I told those who asked that I lived in Trumpton, and that I was, in fact, Chippy Minton, and my friends were Pugh, Pugh, Barney, McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble and Grub. Checking my background, people were convinced I actually lived in Trumpington (another place entirely). Surprisingly, even when I sent pictures of Brighton – of ME in Brighton – the belief remained.

So. I’ve run out of decent titles for this post. Here it is – an interesting article:

‘Yet the practice of sending self-generated sexual content is so common among the nation’s teenagers that it is described in a Childline survey of 13- to 18-year-olds as “mundane”. Some 60% of respondents said that they had been asked for a sexual video or photo of themselves; 40% had gone as far as actually creating the content, and a quarter had sent it on to either a partner, a peer or – in 15% of the cases – a total stranger.’

‘Sexting is everywhere, a rite of passage of the digital age. A tentative NSPCC campaign and a Hollyoaks plot may not be much – but we must do more to protect young girls who often don’t believe in their own vulnerability until it’s too late, as well as the boys who think it’s a good idea to egg them on.’

Short and sweet today. Take care everyone!
