Vermont's State Slogan is currently: Vermont, Naturally. Which is pretty fucking stupid to begin with, but in light of the states current attempts to legalize 'sexting' between teens ranging in age from 13-18, they should change their slogan to something like: Vermont is for pedophiles, or, Vermont, a place where your kids can roam free...and naked. What the fuck are they thinking? 13 year olds?
For those of you who don't know what 'sexting' is, it is the exchange of nude photos/video through cell phones. So, basically, its the free transfer of porn from one person to another that the state thinks is a good idea to open up to kids who just barely learned where their 'naughty parts' are and what they do! Does anyone else see a problem with this? I don't know if making this legal will cause the cell phone waves to become flooded with nudey pics, but I do know that kids are less likely to do shit when there is a fear instilled in them over the legality of their actions. SO, for arguements sake, lets say that this rule passes and kids start sending each other photos of their respective innys and outeys. After a while, photos of these kids' junk are bound to get into the hands of adult perverts.
If there ever was an opening for a HUGE influx of child porn to hit the Net and get into the hands of pedophiles, its a ruling like this. Not to mention that if this ruling passes and pedophiles are caught with child porn, there will be legal loopholes that scumbag lawyers will be able to angle and use to get hard sex offenders off (pun, pun). Now, these pedophiles know where all the 'free spirited kids' live and where they are least likely to be charged. Inevitable? No, but in the equation: nude kids + self shot photos/videos + legal loopholes = a pedophiles wet dream; definitely true. The good news in all of this is that if Vermont's job market is in dire need of crossing guards, or ice cream men, or party clowns, or candy store owners, or people who are interested of financing used vans with blacked out windows; they may soon fill their quotas.
On a side note. I wonder if Verizon will get into the mix and add monthly Sext messaging plans to their contracts...
