Cyberbullying, Sexting, and Snapchat: It’s Time To Take This App Seriously

It’s time for Snapchat to take sexting, cyberbullying, and sexual exploitation on its app seriously. EndSexualExploitation.org January 26, 2018 Within the last decade, cyberbullying has emerged as a pernicious new form of bullying that breaks the spirits of our nation’s children.

Systems of sexual exploitation (e.g. strip clubs, illicit massage parlors, legal brothels, online prostitution websites, etc.) operate using a business model that feeds off of people’s vulnerabilities and traumatic events such as childhood sexual abuse, child sex trafficking, child neglect, sexual abuse within the foster care system, homelessness, and economic insecurity. These adverse experiences are often compounded by additional marginalization and vulnerabilities created by young age, racial and gender discrimination, learning disabilities, and/or immigrant or indigenous minority status. Pimps (the functional equivalents of sex traffickers) and sex buyers exploit these vulnerabilities for their personal [...]

Teen: “I started watching PORN in 2nd Grade”

Testimony courtesy of Jackie Brewton "Before you came, I was addicted to watching porn and I never told anyone. Not my parents, not even my friends. I started watching it at an early age and I started because of a game called Minecraft. I was downloading the game and an ad popped up on the screen and it was a porn ad of people having sex, and this was a kid’s game with a porn ad. I got curious and I started watching. I clicked and clicked and I found out what masturbation was in 2nd grade. And in 4th [...]
