sexting is causing big problems around the world why send photos of your own body to people who in the long run don't care about you...teenagers are not thinking before doing this. these pictures could cost you a job in the long run.

good luck to my challenger

Sexting among teens has one stated problem by my opponent: potential loss of job opportunity in the future. I contend only if the recipient of such text violates social norms of privacy does that sext become visible to an employer.

Meanwhile sexting is a form of expression among all people not just teenagers. You also make an assumption that the recipient of the sext will not care about that person in the long run. While a possibility that is not an argument against sexting since someone caring or not caring about the sexter in the long run has no impact on the value of sexting.

As for the 'teenagers are not thinking before doing this' I contend they are. They are thinking about expressing themselves as human beings.

How is sexting causing problems on a global scale?
