    I guess you are an anarchist and don't care about the weak being trampled by the strong, children being exploited and abused by adults. It is a pity such people can't be permanently deported to a state that caters for them.
    You seem out of touch, i wouldn't be surprised if you were old.

    Out of touch with what? Do you think it should be legal to publish indecent pictures of minors? Do you think abuse of children is laudable?Do you think only old people believe the opposite?

    Presumably it's illegal if either party is underage - not just if both are. :dontknow:

    Stop jumping at the gun, it's a poor way of arguing. You're completely right about everything except the fact that you don't understand what, in the majority of these cases, actually happens.

    I fully understand what happens, but you haven't answered as to whether you think it should be legal to distribute indecent pictures of children, or to abuse them.

    If it should be legal, how will you prevent children from being exploited? Should children who bully and exploit other children have a free pass, and be given licence to carry on? How do you give society the power to deal with such behaviour if you don't keep it illegal?

    I mean it's clear you don't understand what's happening here so at this point this conversation is completely pointless. You're incapable of arguing without jumping at the gun or using straw mans.

    Well, you appear incapable of making an argument at all (there is no sign of one so far), or even of answering a question.

    My understanding of n00ds law is that if you take a pic of yourself aged under 18, you've gone and made child porn according to the law. Even though you can have sex with people at 16. Because... reasons. That being said, police tend not to want to go after couples when both parties are under the age providing nobody goes and spreads the pictures around all their mates.

    I'm not aware of anything preventing an 18 year old sending nudes to a 16-17 year old, correct me if I'm wrong here.

    Otherwise, they're legal providing they're consensual. If you get unsolicited dickpics I don't think there's any law that specifically condemns them but if you got a decent enough lawyer you could probably claim sexual harassment if you really wanted to.

    IN CONCLUSION: From what I think I know (which might not be 100% right), none of your poll options are actually correct.

    Well you're the one who seemed to think the issue here is purely legality. Learn to read.

    Given your inability to communicate coherently, yes.

    But that's irrelevant anyway. You don't even have a clue about what happens in reality, probably because you're too old to.

    You are very quick with the insults, but curiously slow with the arguments. Why is that?

    Oh,you thought this an argument? You're mistaken. This is me purely informing you that your contribution to this topic has thus far been null and irrelevant.

    Also, it's not an insult. I'm just speculating that the reason why you don't have a clue what happens is because you're not of our age group.

    No. As I've already made clear you haven't made any kind of argument, just silly statements and insults. No constructive contribution at all.

    It's pointless arguing with him though i'm afraid, he seems overly fond of making up straw men that are irrelevant to the points anybody else makes, best of luck with him!

    The poll options suggest that they think everyone on tsr are 12 year old idiots. How was your option not originally there?? 😑

    He's talking about "adults exploiting children" and "children abuse others" which is very rare and most of the time it's something completely different as you will know. He's old though so he's not got a clue what's happening.

    Do you not think the main issue with nudes happens when a young person sends it to another? And that it's when either they both do it with consent or one sends it spontaneously?

    Because what Good Bloke seems to think adults are the main issue here.
