Girl performs sex act on boy... Photo goes viral. She's a 'slut'. Boy's a 'hero'. What should we do?
The Telegraph ^ | 21 Aug 2013 | Charlotte Lytton

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 ...

Indeed, the intent counts while the act is less reproachable. Plenty of “supposedly clean” people out there whoring themselves to government, voting in denunciation ways.

“Closest I’ve come was walking my young children through a park and surprising a couple who had parked their van in the woods to do the nasty.

All I saw was the woman hop out in a trenchcoat and run away while the guy drove off. “

A group of us surprised the heck out a couple. They were parked along this deserted road while doing stuff outside the car. Well, out of the woods pops 8 mountain bikers on a trail right next to the car. I never saw two people run like that half clothed.

No savagery is not old. What is new is that the recent salvation from savagery is now spit upon. People do not have the mental intellectual fortitude to cope with modern science. Instead of seeing production as a means to coordinate with growing families, the savages are seeing opportunities to go the KFC chicken battery orgy way. Concerts are a deviancy of industrialized orgy and sex. What used to be amateurish and local is now going professional. The sluts take themselves very seriously, hence the feminists’ condescension towards conservative values which look amateurish.

Ok, so how many generations ago did people start filming their teen sex-acts and placing them on an internationally accessible network where everyone else can see you doing it?

Put up 10 fingers. Now take them all down.

Nothing past generations did had the ability to “go viral” past your school, maybe your small town. Now these stupid kids have people all over the world talking about it because they cant control themselves at the amounts that may look non-existent to you today, but were real back then, despite those examples.

Yeah, the ‘viral’ thing is the diff. now with all of the cameras/internet/social media etc. etc. I’ll bet that the dumb broad barely got the kid’s load gulped before some old monk way up in a cave in Tibet was reading about it...

Seems to me that you agree with most of the rest of us. She did a sex act in public, it brought her either pleasure or some perverse kind of fun. So the “puh-leeze” comments should be directed at the randy gal — don’t be so sensitive when your public acts become public.

This sordid incident is being blamed on social media and the availability of personal video devices, but consider the threefold sequence of events:

1. Gal decides to engage in consensual sex act in public.

2. Nearby guys hoot and holler, and some film it to show their buddies how rad the Eminem concert was.

3. A couple more decide to post it on social media.

4. The usual trolls on social media come out and start calling the girl a slut.

The only thing out of the ordinary here was 1), the public sex act. If it’s not done in public, numbers 2) through 4) never happen.

"I hate to break it to folks but I am 55 years old." Gotcha beat. I'm a year older than you.

" 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" We must've grown up in different countries, because I was born and raised in So California and I didn't see any of this ... skinny-dipped once in college and accidentally walked in on a flagrante delicto couple at a party. I think you had a much more dissolute life than most.

"difference now is it's on someones smart phone posted to the world in real time" No, the difference is that girls are sluttier today yet do not want to be told that. In the 1970s, a slut was a slut and they were few and far betweeen. Today, 50% of girls hook up but want to think they retain a shred of purity. They don't.

Boy's haven't changed. It's the girls that have. Girls becoming sluttier have just made it easier for boys to get the milk for free (to those of you who don't know old sayings, "why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free").

As a postscript... this afternoon I checked with three of my good buddies (all male, all same age as I am), and questioned them as to whether they had ever witnessed a “public” sex act. Nope. Like me, none of them had. And these aren’t particularly cloistered guys. Average redneck joes.

Semi-related: none of us have ever seen two homos swapping swit in public, either. Just on tv.

That’s a good point about much of the change as being with the girls. It’s a big part of it.

But I still think there are some new things going on. The whole trend about teens taking pictures of their privates, while even diddling with them, and sending them all around. Or instances of students having oral sex in the classroom in front of fellow classmates. Or, how the whole grave topic of something like child-molestation is now a common butt of twitter jokes amongst the teen crowd. Things like that, to the whole mentality and worldview of earlier generations, are so mind-bendingly inconceivable. It’s less about “sex” as it is some kind of bizarre, monstrous cultural depravity.
