Teen Sexting : The criminalization of Sexualized ‘Selfies’

@ Law & Society

Consideration of the child protection, crime prevention, and criminal law response to youths’ production and distribution of digital sexual imagery, the limits of the emerging construction of consensual sexting as ‘self-exploitation’ and the relationship of this rhetoric to mounting fears about the so-called ‘sexualization of culture’. Conclusion: criminal law is too blunt a tool to address teenage sexting, consensual or otherwise.

Defining the Lines between Free Expression, Privacy, Safety and Regulation

@ Law & Society

Defining the line on cyber-bullying and cyber-harassment. Shariff argues for a need to engage young people in critically assessing the impact of their online postings through dialogue and interactive projects that help them “define the line” as well as increased sensitization of the legal community to the realities of young people’s modes of communication. She argues that new legislation will simply result in criminalizing youth.
