Dan Savage’s thoughts on the moral outrage about ‘sexting’ (via inky, mappeal)
Fair warning: This contains a lot of profanity. If that offends you or if you are in an environment where that could get you in trouble, keep scrolling.
It’s a generational paranoia because young people are doing something that old people didn’t, because they couldn’t, and now can’t, because no one wants to see them naked.
He makes some very good points about what each generation considers acceptable and how the outrage over “sexting” is itself so often rooted in sexism and the control and perceived ownership of women.
