If social media sites target teenagers to join in the first place, why should they not be held accountable when they are used as vehicles for malice, asks Charlotte Lytton.
Why did photos of a teenage girl performing oral sex on a boy in a field become the second worldwide trending topic on Twitter on Monday? And why were there endless jokes, insults and disapprobation slung her way, and not at the boy concerned?
The incident happened during an Eminem concert at Slane Castle in Ireland. And immediately the girl was branded a slut online with hashtags: 'slanegirl' and 'slaneslut' fast becoming trends.
When it comes to online safety, social media is repeatedly and unrepentantly failing teenagers. ...
A teenage girl giving someone a bl-w job is not shocking standing by and taking photos before posting them to millions of people is ...

The underage girl, no doubt stoned or high at the Eminem concert, gave a stranger, albeit a cute one, a "freebie" in broad daylight amid hundreds of people. She wasn't raped or forced into the act. She didn't care during the act when dozens of boys jeered and cheered her on. And later she gets depressed when she's called a sl-t?
If the picture had been posted, but she was labeled a hottie, would she have felt no shame? Jezebel.com has more facts on the actual story (easy to find using google) and it appears that the gal, ahem, "pleasured" not one but two guys. I bet it isn't the first time she'd done sex acts in public with strangers.
I just had to post this because only on FR will the comments be direct and to the point.
Hope springs eternal...
Would this not qualify as child pornography distribution?.............
Sex and cameras don’t mix.....
Probably, but the gal was 17 and she did the same act on two men, both strangers. I hardly think that distribution of the very public act it the most serious matter here.
Slick Willy Clinton taught us that oral sex isn’t sex.
Not sex per Bill Clinton.
What should we do?
Teens want to be idiots so badly, and dismiss moral behavior because it’s so old-timey, then dont look for a shoulder to cry on when the animals you roll with turn you into the world’s biggest “slut” with the dirtbag you decided to play doctor with in A FIELD!
I was a teen in the 90s (Pre Monica) and even the slang term for this was never spoken out loud without it being shocking.
Heaven help these kids today.
sandra fluke at an eminem concert?
seriously, how stupid do you have to be to engage in that conduct in public, in broad daylight and with a total stranger???
and doesn’t that make you a slut, by definition? if so then stop complaining.
But I was a wild lad in the early 70s till early 80s
and attended many festival type shows around the US
up to half million or so
this sort of thing from being high or drunk or tripping
and skinny dipping, nudity, blowjobs, group sex, orgies, and gang bangs are not the least bit new
it was not uncommon then either
difference now is it's on someones smart phone posted to the world in real time and the kids are more likely inked up and pierced...and back then the girl couldn't claim voluntary but high sex was rape the next day
I do think girls are more slutty now but we had them then too...daddy issues usually or just plain horny little things
Men are more feminine which is contradictory
I've seen a lot of public sex in my life..I think this goes back a ways
We used to keep this under wraps...that's what bordellos were for
Old Timey Wisdom has been around a long time for a reason...
Or else it wouldn’t have been around all that long.
Learn from the past or be doomed to repeat it.
the writer is complaining about the lac of monitoring by the social media, how about the lack of monitoring by the parents of all parties involved?
What if it had been a male-on-male event? Which would be the “slut”?
You can thank, in part, BJ Klinton
The one with the dirty knees.
It’s as if history doesn’t exist to these Leftist journos.
Young men of questionable morals love to play around with women of questionable morals. That hardly means they respect them or think highly of them, quite the opposite.
Young women who perform sex acts on strangers for free, have the same morals as a whore, with far less business acumen.
Every intelligent man, whether of high or low morals, would prefer not to be married to a slut who has no morals.
Why him, instead of him?
Miley, was that you?
Used to be that I could scroll down for a whole page and see only one post which was somewhat shocking.
Now it about seven or eight per page.
Keeping Up With The Kardashians!
Because boys are not girls.
Did this girl not know this was slutish behavior prior to the the field of dreams ???
Just when did she decide that she had not quite acted like a lady ???
when her priest heard about her well publicized sins and told her she needed to go to confession ???
Was it her Mom at her quilting bee ???
Her Dad who got sly looks and jokes at work ???
It cant have been the other sluts errr girls at school who told her their parents forbade them from being friends due to her bad influence ???
Poor little slut err lassie...
Neither. It would get the round-the-world double-snap stamp of approval.
someone’s gotta say it.....
THANK YOU VERY MUCH, BILL CLINTON!
The epidemic of young girls giving hummers can be directly traced to you and your “it’s not really sex” defense strategy.
Man, that’s gotta be the ugliest bikini wear I have ever seen.
...Outstanding in her field!
Ahh, the sexual revolution has really benefited...men!
If one performs sexual acts in public it will be filmed.
This teenage girl is a total idiot.
ding ding ding we have a winner
Not my kids, not my kids’ friends or associates.
Not my problem.
Otherwise, we have a problem...
Nailed it, boyeeeeeeeeeeee!
Anything for a buck...
We must travel in different circles. I’ve never seen a ‘public sex’ act in my life. And I’m ten years younger than you.
Someone explain to me exactly why she should not be branded a slut!!!
“Why did photos of a teenage girl performing oral sex on a boy in a field become the second worldwide trending topic on Twitter on Monday?”
Why do so many millions give a dam what the Twitter world is saying anyway???
Why do so many parents make-believe that the virtual world is either a place for real relationships of their teens, or is an appropriate place for the real-life relationships of their teens??
Those questions are as important as WHY the lack of judgement shown by the young lady, and the young man, as well as WHY the lack of parenting by their parents.
They would both be brave heroes.
The classic definition generally refers to the server, and not to the recipient.
how long before she testifies in front of a congressional panel demanding federal money for free contraceptive coverage?
neither, gays are protected classes and gay sex is beautiful and normal. you homophobe.
oh yeah, /s
Billy Ray Cyrus must be so proud of his little girl, and so happy that he helped launch her career in Hollyweird.
I don't honestly think "social media" are the problem here. A medium is, after all, a means of communicating something between a willing sender and a willing recipient. It's the "willing" part that's the problem.
I once got into a huge flame war on FR over a situation where a girl got drunk at a frat party, went 95% of the way with a fellow, then asked him to stop, and got date-raped when the lad couldn't stop himself for the last 5%.
During this brouhaha, I told the angry ladies on FR that while a crime was committed, had it been my daughter in that case I would still chew her out for getting in that situation in the first place.
This situation isn't even close to that. I have a feeling that she would've been proud if the twitter commentary had called her a hottie instead of a sl-t.
And therein lies the problem, my dear Watson.
Oh, puh-lease! This generation did not invent sex. Get over it. The very same sort of public sex and nudity went on back in the 60s, after the pill became available. The baby boomers rebelling against the mores of the more conservative war generation. Two generations before that, hedonism ruled in the 1920s, when women’s liberation movement scored its big victory and decided that free sex was the next step. College students in the 20s engaged in the same drunken orgies you’ll find on campuses today. No doubt they were not happy about their conservative parents’ morals.
Go two generations before that and you’ll hit the civil war, which probably prevented a hedonistic decade (at least, I haven’t heard of one at that time). Barring exceptional circumstances, the conservative-liberal oscillations seem to go on, with each generation rebelling against its parents. This most certainly was so in ancient Greece, and before that in Egypt. Ancient egyptian women were quite adept at making sexy clothing.
So please stop pretending you’re the first to discover conservative values, or that today’s teenagers are in any way exceptional. The only real difference today is that pictures of everything get published. In ancient Egypt all they had was gossip. They survived, and so shall we.
