    High School Girls Have the Right to Upload Lewd Pictures

    Personally I think the judge should have ruled that what student do off campus in none of the business of the principal.


    High School Girls Have the Right to Upload Lewd Pictures

    It's official: High school girls have a constitutionally protected right to post to Facebook pictures of themselves in lingerie toying with phallic lollipops. America is not Saudi Arabia, you know! We are not under Sharia law (yet).

    A federal judge in Indiana sided with the ACLU in ruling that a high school principal was wrong to punish two girls, 15 and 16, for posting pictures of slumber parties in which they... well... let's just blockquote:

    A fully-clothed M.K. [one of the teens] is sucking on one lollipop while another lollipop is positioned between her legs and a fully-clothed T.V. is pretending to suck on it. During another sleepover, [the other teen] T.V. took a picture of M.K. and another girl pretending to kiss each other... In another, T.V. is shown bent over with M.K. poking the trident between her buttocks. A third picture shows T.V. positioned behind another kneeling girl as if engaging in anal sex. In another picture, M.K. poses with money stuck into her lingerie stripper-style.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Proper ruling, this subject is kind of icky, but a person should be able to take pictures of themselves, and do whatever they want to with it.

    Rather than focus on the specific "right" involved, it's better to say that the rights of free speech and privacy are broad enough to cover the activity in this case.

    It isn't the schools business as far as punishment goes UNTIL it causes a disruption in the school.

    This really isn't a new problem. It's just more accessable. Unfortuately what happens is that one of these girls come to school and gets all sort of sucker remarks made to her. Suckers left on her desk and she decides she doesn't like it and goes to the school to complain.

    Totally agree with the ruling until the images "enter" the school. Now, since I'm against allowing kids to have their cell phones or any internet access (other than through the firewalls on the school computers in the library and classrooms) during the school day, that shouldn't be an issue. However, IF these photos begin being passed around the school via text, email, etc... then it DOES become a school issue in my mind since it is a disruption to the educational process.

    Not that sucking a lollipop is pornagraphic, but when teens post nude pictures and videos of themselves and they are minors -- aren't they distributing child porn?

    It appears there was no nudity.

    Not necessarily here is an interesting story about that issue :

    Jock Sturges (born 1947) is an American photographer, best known for his images of nude adolescents and their families, primarily taken at communes in Northern California and at the Atlantic-coast naturist resort at Montalivet, France. His work has been the subject of controversy.[1] Much of his work features Californian Misty Dawn, whom he shot from when she was a young child until in her twenties.[2] In 1990, his San Francisco studio was raided by FBI officers and his equipment seized. A Grand Jury subsequently declined to bring an indictment against him.[3]
    Sturges graduated with a BFA in Perceptual Psychology and Photography from Marlboro College and received an MFA in photography from the San Francisco Art Institute.[4]. He primarily works with a large 8x10-inch-format view camera.

    As far as the OP goes, it is a good ruling. Schools are not intended to be parents.

    That is the arguement. I'm not sure we have completely decided that yet.
