  • At some point 'racey pics' are considered porn. Sending porn over the internet, or cell phone, is illegal. And if it's pics of MINORS, I do believe it's a FELONY. It is a big deal.

  • The major problem is that these racy pics are of minors, it canbe considered a form of child pornography. These children should not be taking these pictures! And I believe there should be consequences.

  • It's wrong, if I foud pictures like that on my son's phone the school wouldn't have to take it away because I would.

  • Kids don't need to have cells at school-just like they didn't need pagers. Phones are for use after school.

  • The point is we need to stop these kids from doing that. If we don't stop them we are essentially telling them that it is ok to flaunt themselves naked. Would you honestly want your children to degrade themselves by sending naked pictures to each other? Naughty pictures between two consenting adults in a relationship is a completely different story, these are children!

    You think you get self confidence by showing your boobs to a boy and they give you attention?? What kind of boy do you think you're going to attract with behavior like that? She'll have lower self confidence when the next girl comes along with bigger boobs and he goes off with her. Try growing a brain and get your self confidence from being smart and making good decisions!
