There is a current trend for teenagers to send semi-clothed or naked texts to eachother. 'Yawn. Sigh. Ok, maybe that is intersting. . . ' Once the purile mood has passed one thinks as to why, given the nature of the crisis we are going through, why the US government is charging the self same teenagers with possessing child pornography. This is a question of liberty and censorship. What they're doing is a 'self-regarding action', even if there are other selves regarding them regarding the camera. So leave them alone - it's stupid, but that's giggling teenagers for you. But I doubt whether the Mels and the decents will defend them.

The idea of Malanie Phillips sexting herself has ended any further thoughts on this subject....................
