Huff Post: Sex’t Up Kids

Here’s an excerpt from my blog in Huffington Post Canada:

Already wise and weary at age 15, the teenagers in Sex’t Up Kids talked about sending private photos to their boyfriends. They were mortified when those photos of themselves in bra and panties or topless were sent all around the classroom, all around the school, all around the Internet. They just were doing what they’d been taught to do by TV, YouTube, magazines, their friends: “be cute,” which has become code for “be sexy,” which means show your stuff. And then they’d been shamed for it.

I’d love you to have a look at the whole thing and tell me what you think!
