Here's another article that Art showed me.
Apparently a boy (OK... first the gun incident and now some boy showing his butt. Sheesh!) and two of his friends posted a photo on Facebook of his butt with his friends' signatures on it. They did this during a math class and uploaded it on his cellphone. The kids have been suspended until the last day of school.
The father of this boy said, "the photo shouldn't have been taken, much less posted, but also said he didn't see the need for a suspension and questions how the school can punish his son for something published on a social networking website."
I also saw something else on the news last night about Sexting. I must be out of it since it's the first time I've heard of it. This is when people send sexual photos to others using their cellphones, or other technology. They interviewed some girls who said some guy sent them a photo of their (most) private part which grossed her out.
This reminds me of David Niven when he was co-hosting the 46th Annual Oscars ceremony. A naked man appeared behind him, "streaking" across the stage and he said, "Isn't it fascinating to think, that probably the only laugh that man will ever get in his life, is by stripping off and showing his shortcomings?..."
The tragic part of this topic was when the news also reported a story about a teenage girl who sent her boyfriend a nude photo of herself. When they broke up, the louse broadcast that photo to the world. She ended up hanging herself.
Technology has become a scary thing. I don't think my kids had to worry as much about it when they were growing up. It's a whole 'nother world out there.
I worry for my granddaughter.
POSTSCRIPT: Where the heck was the teacher in that math class when that boy was dropping his pants?
