Children of the Street Society releases anti-sexting ad

BC-based charity, Children of the Street Society has a new ad (paying a creepy homage to Amanda Todd’s video) aimed at teens to discourage them from sexting. The video depicts a young woman holding signs that tell a story of sending a nude photo to someone she trusted, only to have it shared.

Personally, I’d prefer to see an ad directed at those on the receiving end of these pictures. Or even, crazy idea, an ad asking its viewers to question why a photo of one’s own body has the potential to ruin reputations when it falls into the wrong hands. Hallae Khosravi put it a bit more eloquently:

“There is going to be another slip-up with sexting, whether it is known to the general public or not, and what's going to help the subject or victim is not reminding them that we've warned them against it before in some video ad, but ensuring them that this is not the be-all and end-all of the rest of their life. “
