Snapchat Encourages Sexting During COVID-19 While Teens Are At Home

Nothing says “young love” like two teens sexting on Snapchat. Now, Snapchat and Teen Vogue want to encourage this little game while teens are home from school. What could possibly go wrong here?

Online rag Teen Vogue has teamed up with Snapchat and story about sexting under the guise of helping teenagers sustain their relationships from a distance. The story posted was under the guise of “keeping relationships alive in time of quarantine”. Because nothing says love like your daughter’s boyfriend sending her a d*ck pic that disappears 10 minutes later. (And you thought he was a nice kid.)

Let’s get this straight. Teen Vogue is encouraging our children to engage in “intimacy” by sexting one another. They do realize that kids under the legal age of 18 read their trash, right? This means basically, Teen Vogue is encouraging kiddie porn. Let’s call this what it is. This from a previous article on when is it “safe” to send a nude photo:

Get very familiar with yourself. Pose in the mirror, caress your silhouette, know your naked angles.-Teen Vogue

Teen Vogue strikes again, claiming on Snapchat’s Discover that sexting “should make you feel good”, that there are “creative and fun ways to sext”, they add, “if you’re at that level”. And if your children are not… well fear not, they will get them there.

With the likely surge of young viewers on Snapchat due to quarantine, it is socially irresponsible for Snapchat Discover to encourage minors to self-produce underage pornography (i.e. child sexual abuse materials), thereby increasing their vulnerability to sexual predators.”-Dawn Hawkins, National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCSE)

According to NCSE, here are some alarming stats:

334 person sample studied (aged 13 to 30):

13% sexted during substance use at least once;
30% had been forced to sext by a partner at least once;
10% had been forced to sext by friends at least once;
95% had sent sexts to strangers;
59% had sent sexts about someone else [sometimes referred to as “secondary sexting”] without her/his consent at least once.”

Fear not, parents. Teen Vogue wants you to know that your teen will not be charged with a felony but only a misdemeanor if he/she shares an unwanted nude photo between other 13-17 year-olds.

Like anything worth doing, sexting takes practice.”-Teen Vogue/SnapChat

Teen Vogue outlined sexting in 2017 with 7 steps-so this not the first time the online magazine pushed something as irresponsible. The guidelines included steps like, sexting should “feel good”, it should be consensual (until it isn’t), to not assume the sexting method you used for your last partner will work for your new one and to make sure the particular sext message is crafted in the right mood for the right person and scenario. These are not grown adults we’re talking to here. They’re attempting to hold captive boys with raging hormones and girls that would be willing to do anything with said boys for affection and acceptance.

Pedophiles and the lowest of the low who engage in teen sex trafficking also have lots of practice and know the exact avenues to gain access to teenage girls and boys during this time. Yet, Teen Vogue thinks it’s perfectly orthodox to advise teens on reviewing their “best angles” for nude selfies that may increase “intimacy” with a “boo” during a quarantine. “Try it, it’s fun,” they say. They’re going to team up with SnapChat and teach teens the perfect way to sext. Just like the awesome briefing on anal sex they gave some time back. Or their editorial argument that “sex work is real work”. Or (another one of their greatest hits) “how to get an abortion without parental consent” article. That one was a gem! Let’s also not forget their many articles praising Marxism.

Parents, seriously, do yourselves a favor. Limit the time your teens spend on their phones. Take this time to be with them and build them up so they don’t feel the need to sexualize themselves at such a young age. Seriously, block sites that spew this trash like Teen Vogue. Tell them their digital footprint is far from temporary and predators are lurking in the shadows. I’m not just talking the pedophiles and the teen sex trafficking rings. I’m including those that are housed at Snapchat and Teen Vogue parent company, Conde Nast-soul-sucking organizations that they are.

    Bunch of pervs, frankly.
    Just goes to show that while Epstein may be dead (but not by his own hand), and Weinsten in jail, the whole creepy perv subculture is still alive and well in the media.

  • GWB says:

    OK, so what part of this is not “contributing to the delinquency of a minor”?

    On those NCSE stats….
    – How is a sample range of 13 to 30 helpful? What are all the 20-30yos doing in there?
    – I think the word “forced” should be “coerced”. I doubt they were forced to sext by someone who wasn’t even present. They might have some power over the person, and exert that power long-distance, but “forced” means “force” and that requires proximity.
    – How many of those sent to strangers were unintentional?
    – How in the world do you “secondary sext”? “I want to do Johnny”? Or are these threesome fantasies on only 2 phones?

    Take this time to be with them and build them up so they don’t feel the need to sexualize themselves at such a young age.
    Yes. Try to build in them a self-esteem that doesn’t require sex to feel good about themselves. Give them the intimacy they need in your own family. (Pro tip: you cannot stop their desire for another person in their life. The fish needs a bicycle. But you can help make sex not the most important thing in their life.)
    One of the best ways to do that, btw, is to push back against the Darwinian nihilism the schools preach. And what better opportunity than when the schools have given you back your children?

  • I’d like to blog about this, but I haven’t been able to find a link to the actual Teen Vogue story. All the links on this site and others (Red State, Daily Caller) loop back to the National Center to End Sexual Exploitation story but not to Teen Vogue itself. So I went to the Teen Vogue site and couldn’t find anything there, either. There were plenty of older stories pushing teen sexting but nothing recent involving coronavirus quarantines. Could someone please send me a link? I don’t like to blog anything without first checking the source directly for accuracy.
