Well, maybe it should be, Ethel:
Ethel Quayle, project leader and senior lecturer in clinical psychology at the University of Edinburgh, said the group’s findings have been turned into practical advice. “It is not about condoning the activity, rather it is about providing more practical advice about being able to talk about this and manage issues when they come along,” she said.
“It is interesting that the majority of young people we interviewed didn’t refer once to ‘sexting’. Instead they saw this as taking selfies or nude selfies.”
Well, well, well.
You mean teenagers have a term for an activity that doesn’t match what adults use? Fancy!
Zoe Hilton, head of safeguarding at the NCA’s CEOP Command, said: “Children and young people don’t necessarily know that sexting is dangerous. It can start off as a bit of fun but the issues start when that image gets into the wrong hands.”
Those hands being those of the police, who will criminalise you for taking and sharing that image, Zoe..?
