    Just heard: "18 year old girl commits suicide due to sexually explicit photos shared on 'iphone'". Evidently this is called "SEXTING" and 30-40% of young teens are posting racy, sexual photos on their 'iphones' intended for bf or gf. Then these photos are shared with others without permission. It cost a young girl from Ohio, U.S.A., her life, after they were shown around!! BE CAREFUL!!!

    Well, few things :p

    1. The one who is respounsble for all this is her ex and he must take the full punishment.
    2. she looking good i dont get it, why she took it so hard?
    i mean all girls have the same thing, everyone can see what it is on porn sites
    if she was a guy then its a bit diffrente as guys tend to be senstive about size..
    i just dont get it ><

    I can just as easy look at some girls photo from this site
    and then "imagine" her naked... hell some guys even so more then that
    they modify pictures... but it all got the same result, WE ALL KNOW HOW

    Andrew hun,its not about that.

    Its about reputation, respect and dignity. When something like this gives people a reason to call them whores and sluts(which is what happened) which resulted in depression for her. Girls bodies are very precious and private to them too...they have the right to choose who should see it. In this case, she was stripped of those rights and left exposed for everyone to see.. :unsure:

    Yeah... you really don't get it... not even sure how to start explaining it to you either... you've got completely the wrong idea about how women feel and think though....

    well names like whore and slut are just words... i dont think it was the reason
    for her suicide... and sure her boddy is private to her.. but she got the same boddy
    as like most of other girls... even the girls that abused her, 100% same boddy.
    She could just as easy say it is a modified picture
    And somehow my inner me telling me that her suicide wasnt because of that
    Her mom sayed that when she found her, her mobiel was near her, why?
    Is it possible that she had a talk with someone who encouraged her to kill herself?
    Or maybe she recive a call from some sick guy who saw her photos and got
    her phone number, offering her money for sex... idk :X

    I just cant beliave she could of kill herself just because of some abusive teens
    and a photo...

    Andrew,I can see perfectly why that would be enough for someone to commit suicide. Having the same things as everyone else wouldn't make it any less painful. She felt humiliated and degraded.

    No offence intended..but how would you feel if the same was done to you?

    I don't think you should be talking here summer if you don't get it... I mean... it's only going to upset people and start arguments. If you can't even understand why a girl would be upset that an intimate video of her was sent out to people in her school... well.. erm I think you might as well be speaking a different language :unsure:

    and the moral of the story is: never trust anyone with anything that could ruin your life.

    Wow, Summer.rain, not only are you an extreme racist (as seen on your other posts) but you seem to have liitle respect for women either.

    This girl/woman felt so degraded that she felt she had no other option. Regardless of the opinion people have about taking naked photos of themselves, when they are shared between loved ones, they should remain private. By making her picture readily available, her (ex)boyfriend did contribute to her suicide. I hope he is riddled by guilt.

    This girl that killed herself is SUPER SELFISH and SHALLOW!
    She thought that her "image" among the other students is more important
    then her life, or the feelings of her relatives.
    She ended her life just because some stupid teenage girls told her some bad words..
    Hell, we guys could of suffer physycal abuse not only moral and psychological
    but she killed herself only because someone saw her naked boddy
    this is one of the most selfish things i saw latley!

    ...I'm new here but people who constantly post such controversial things in any forum are looking to fight. Why feed them? :)

    This is a good point. It's sad when people, particularly teens act without realizing the ramifications of their actions.

    Also, she probably was struggling with life before the pictures were shared. That was probably just the final straw so to speak... I mean the fact that she got pressured into doing something she obviously wasn't comfortable with shows her to be eager to please or insecure... It's sad. :(

    I'll bet she had been depressed for a while.

    Also she probably was more hurt by the way people reacted than just that they had seen her naked. She was probably harassed and teased and called nasty things after the incident repetetively..

    The term bullycide has come in to use lately for when people kill themselves after bullying and harassment.

    As for the term "sexting" I have only heard that in the media, not IRL.

    I"ve always just heard it called what it is, sending nude pics. :rolleyes:

    As daisychain has stated It's different for girls, read her post properly.

    Regardless of whether it was a big deal, I really can't see it justify suicide per se for anyone but the most short-sighted and shallow people. I firmly believe she had other problems that weren't mentioned - or known - or that she was a generic mindless teenager of lacklustre depth.
