Coming to a new and different understanding is a very profound and admirable experience for ones Mind And since I mostly agree with what you just said (hehe) I commend you much! Good post too.
Although I still think we need more evidence to think she was being slutty and not just being horny. That's just my personal take. I dunno..

Ok, so after much thought, I think I may be placing blame on this girl simply because I can't handle the perversion of minors in our society today. Kids just don't know what they're in for when it comes to sex. I will go as far as to say that most of them only do it cause it's "cool."
But the real issue here is that the girl is being charged unfairly. Its the wording of the law that damns her, not her actions. I think that the charges won't go far due to logic (hopefully).

Does anyone else notice that those most vehemently opposed to this girls actions, the ones who want the whole world to come down on her head, are also the ones who discuss her actions in the most lurid detail?

It's funny, sad and scary all at the same time how initial reactions were, "OH MY GOD! TEN YEARS!?," instead of, "OH MY GOD! A MINOR IS SELLING PICTURES OF HER BODY!?"
very casually and simply assumed that this is probably a normal thing amongst teens these days with sexual experimentation and all
This stuff doesn't just 'normally' occur.
(I can assure you that even the most liberal of parents will be outraged if their daughter was caught doing something of this magnitude.)
There are, however, other evil
The ten years is for her name being entered in the sex offender registry. People, however, are probably visualizing something extreme like a tight security juvenile prison
She will have a relatively 'normal' life.
People will surely forget about it by the time she's 20.
And hey, it would be poetic irony if she turns out to be a professional strip dancer for the rest of her beauty days, wouldn't you say?

I completely agree with you. Starred. The rest of you on here should be ashamed for agreeing with the "Law's" decision. She's fifteen. Do any of you not remember what being fifteen is like? Kids are stupid. That's a fact.
