A 14-year-old New Jersey girl has been accused of child pornography after posting nearly 30 explicit nude pictures of herself on MySpace.com -- charges that could force her to register as a sex offender if convicted.

If she has to now be labeled and register as a sex offender I think it is ridiculous!

Nope, I have to disagree. She is the one inviting the predators and offenders to her. I am so tired of older men getting locked up and the girls get labeled as a victim, when they are openly looking sex with older men.

Thats really uncalled for. Though she should not have been posting nude pictures of herself, she is going through hormonal changes and lets face it, most people around that age start thinking more sexually.

I think its wrong for her to be arrested, when millions of other people post nude pictures of themselves and get away with it.

I think another question is where is the PARENTS? When my daughter was 14 I watched her online time, had a keylogger so I could see everything she was doing and at 14 I found she had emailed pictures of her breasts (Bare) to another person. That was the end of her Internet connection, email, websites and all things computer related for 6 months.

The predator should know better, the children shouldn't think this is OK activity, but somehow they do in this day and age even when the parents raise them better than that, Peer Pressure???

PARENTS hold the key to sopping this kind of activity and it is their DUTY to protect their children, particularly the ones going through puberty and are all messed up emotionally and hormonally..

Calling her a sexual predator is ridiculous though, are all those Playboy centerfolds listed as such? I know this girl is under 18, but she took those pictures herself or had them taken at her behest. I think she needs some counseling, the parents need some training on Internet/computer watching and there should be no criminal charges brought against anyone at this point.

I see her as baiting people. If someone happened to check her profile they could of been accussed of looking at child porn.

Not to mention, these girls just don't get it that their future colleges and employers could find these sites. And once those pictures are out there you can't retrieve them, and they can fly through the internet.

She doesn't need jail time, she needs a good therapist.

Are there seperate laws for sex offenders who are minors? Like it reset at 18 or something? Or the records get sealed?

Well hell, why dont we just shoot her then. Children nowadays have no concept of right and wrong, because children learn from their parents or older people. Look how they (Parents-older generation) say one thing then do another.

We have lost the ability to teach our children right and wrong. I blame Mainstream Media for this.

you couldnt be more right. media is to blame for many of the problems youth face today. more out of control attitudes, more drugs and drinking, and sex and nudity and the wanting to be perfect ( i.e. only beautiful, airburshed people on tv and in magazines).

They are trying to live up to this expectation of what they think they are supposed to be... so how dare we punish them for the mistakes that many of us have helped create.

I'm afraid not.

That's a pitiful cop-out for parents who are too lazy to raise their own children.

The media isn't to blame...parents (or lack thereof) are.

unfortunately, thats just not true.

kids today rely a lot of how they act and what they look like and what they do on media.

i mean think about it for a second...


the weird, awkward kid in high school.. why was he weird and awkward?


he was the kid who didnt watch tv, or read magazines etc. and didnt know what clothes were "cool" etc. because of it.

kids get a lot of their information from the media. its a sad truth more people need to realize, and without media we'd be much better off.

It's ridiculous how ashamed humans are of their own and each other's bodies. Let her pose naked, what do I care. Let her post her pictures online. Doesn't effect me. unless she's hot.

This is the stupidest thing I've heard of since the idea to drug test welfare recipients...

Yeah, I'd say where are the parents in this, and it's a pretty dumb thing to do. But teenagers aren't known for carefully thinking everything out.

To arrest this person, and further load the court system and spend a ton of money and time for something she did that involved just herself and of her free will is stupid. Not to mention the impact it will have on the rest of her life.

Stupid. Just. Plain. Stupid.

Uh NOT. The problems start at HOME with the PARENTS. Stop blaiming the media....and blame the source of teenager issues.

Kids had serious issues way before the internet and way before the media was a huge as it was today. I was raised in the 70s/80s.....kids back then had the SAME issues as today - it just appears more wide spread due to technology and the huge world of the media - there was not a zillion magazines, reality shows, cable news, etc etc when I was growing up.

Media is not at fault. Parents and home environments are.

youth of today are a LOT different then they were in the 70's.

they face some of the same issues, but many more have come into play.

it isnt always the parents. i grew up in a family of 5 kids. most of my brothers were calm and great but one of them wanted to rebel and he was in jail much of his life, had a kid at 13 years old, was in a gang etc. it was NOT my parents to blame.

Its a cop out to always blame the parents.

As far as the topic goes.....the girl, who seems to have lack of parents in her life, should be punished at home and not be arrested and doing jail time. If she is found to be an online predator (purposely luring adult men to look at her pictures, I think that is another story).

Easy and responsible solution would be to sit the parents down, make them attend parenting classes and make sure that child has no computer access for awhile (and the parents learn how to protect the computers).

However, I see Jhill's stance. Many girls and women prey on men - and when they dont get what they want can easily turn on men ruining their lives. IE. false rape reports. Men are not always to blame for these things. Some females are screwed up and will do whatever they can to ruin a man's life.

I think there is a big difference between child porn and this girl taking the pictures of herself, I personaly blame Paris Hilton

Yeah, I'm sure it was reality TV that made him do those things.



The parents have a lot to do with it, but so does personal responsibility for our own actions.

That seems to have been lost somewhere as well.

Im sorry, but you are way too young to tell me how youth are different today then they were in the 70s. You have no clue what you are talking about. You were not even alive then. They have better means (technology, 2 working parents, etc) to act out. But the same issues of today were issues in the 70s/80s. This is fact, I lived it.

Today we have cell phones and the internet. Back then there were polaroids and sneaking off behind bushes.

Technology is different and so is economics (dual working parents never home). But kids - are the same.
