I believe that doing that is stupid. I am so sick of reading and hearing about it. It is your body not some piece of junk you are advertising. Sometimes I want to tune out what I am being told but texting and driving and sending pictures of yourself nude is STUPID today, stupid tomorrow and stupid forever!

Sounds like the mental health industry fishing for new laws and profits thereof. Mental Health Industry's has no science. No evidence based medicine. No medical model and no test for chemical imbalance. The industry is based on hearsay and is political. The industry is probmatic in drugging of the population and increasing the number of people and children that are mentally compromised as a result of the mind drugging.

Its actually proven to be more like 4 out of 5. 1 in 4 teens do regularly, and will admit it.

Teenagers are given in to their useless lust and think it is love, they follow self gratification like a dream, useless teenagers.
