What is up with teenager girls sending pictures of there body parts with text messages?

Asked by stevenb (3826points) April 14th, 2008 from iPhone

I know several younger guys, and almost all of them have boob shots and some c- shots that girls from 14 on up send them. They have a huge number of them, and usually get one every couple of days. Why would girls do that? Trying to impress boys? Doesn’t make sense to me.

The important question is: what have these boys sent in return??
– and otherwise it’s pretty much the same as the recent question posted on here

I thought it was similar, bit not over Internet, this is over phones

Maybe these are all Girls Gone Wild.

I have seen some of them, and they have gone wild.

I had a 20-something send me some boob shots of her and her friend. I wasn’t offended just slightly confused. I kinda shrugged my shoulders then showed EVERYONE in my office.

i do not know your age, but if you are over eighteen and fourteen year old girls are sending you pictures you could get in a lot of trouble.

I got a pic from a girl who said she was over 18. Than I found our later when her mom called asking me ? How u think I felt ? Be careful is all I can say

I am over 18, and yes I know that you can get in trouble. I’m saying if a 16 yr old girl wants to send a pic to a 16 yr old guy, that’s fine by me.

its disgusting. These days seems like girls will do anything for male attention. Why? I don’t know? Insecurities, media?
my mom always taught me modest is hottest, guess maybe I’m wrong?

i guess it’s just “because all the girls do it”, but hey dont worry, here in holland some girls in the big city’s will perform fellatio in return for a cellphone prepaid card etc. i didnt want to believe it at first, but then i read some reports on it, incredible….

@hol..i think you should discourage the girls instead of humiliate them, i guess these actions are just a lack of confidence

TheHaight's avatar

yeah, I agree. (with holl) And complain and whine about how they dont get taken seriously!!! Like those girls that go to bars, wearing very low cut cleavage bearing shirts, that get all pissed off and whine about “pervs” checking them out!!!!
Haha and peedub is right, all thanks to britney spears and her “cooter” shots

Hollister0221's avatar

exactly do can’t stand a woman or guy for the matter. But mostly geared to women. They flirt look sluty and all. Get the guys all excited than have the nerve to tell a gut he is a perv personally I play it cool. I don’t gauck at women. I rather than to think I’m not interested

This is all too true, because I have a teenage son, and I have seen some of the stuff these girls send… my first thought is, “Where are their parents?” Honestly… how is it that these girls are exposed to the things that lead them to believe that that behavior is ‘no big deal’? I don’t think Britney Spears is to blame for the Girls Gone Wild mentality… I think she is a product of it herself.

Then the next thing I think is, “How am I supposed to teach my son to treat women with respect, when these teenyboppers are already acting like total skanks?” Most grown men don’t have the resolve to discourage a willing young thing from showing her goodies, so what can I do as a single parent of a young man? All I could do is tell him that it is not acceptable and that he should in no way ask for it or do anything to encourage it.

Even the nice girls wear such miniscule tight clothing that leaves nothing to the imagination… and who would buy their middle-school daughters thongs, or sweatpants with writing across the ass? At my son’s gf’s birthday party last year, one of her friends was saying how she was going to get her belly-button pierced… she still had braces on her teeth! There is something wrong with this, and it seems that many of he mothers are living vicariously through their daughters. You see them at school functions, practically dressed alike, 14 and 40-something wearing clothes that are barely appropriate for a 20-something.

hearkat, it sounds like you are guiding your son in the right direction and I give you kudos!

hearkat's avatar

Thanks! I’m trying, but it isn’t easy! He has been with his gf for over a year, and I do know that they are sexually active. I told him that I don’t approve, but if they’re going to do it anyway, at least be smart about it. He’s even bought condoms with me in the store with him… no guys I grew up with would have done that! It’s such a challenge not to come down too hard so they won’t open up to you and not to be too much of a friend so they think they can do whatever they want.

My parents were the overbearing type, so we rebelled seriously. Now I can appreciate many of their values, but needed to find different techniques. My goal has been to teach my son to be an independent thinker and discerning decision maker… whether it’s what to buy, whom to hang out with, when to study vs. play, etc. I have also tried to teach him the most valuable lesson of all… self-respect. He does pretty well most of the time, but he is a teenager with unstable hormones and uncertainty about his path in life… but I know he’ll be just fine. :)

TheHaight's avatar

wow, that’s is sooo good that you two are comfortable enough to talk about stuff like that, I mean, you can’t stop them from doing stuff like that but educate them with protection- etc. Seems like he’ll be totally fine!! :)

stevenb's avatar

I don’t know how parents can let their kids dress like that either. I get the willies when I see a dad at the mall with his daughters and they have ultra low rise jeans, things sticking out ( or worse, no panties at all) boobs sticking out of their shirts with cleavage everywhere, and they are hanging on daddy like they ate dating. Eeeww! Its like every girl is a Lolita, and they are encouraged to do it because their looks wont last. Flaunt it while you got it! Mentality. I too think parents live vicariously through their kids, and so many want them to be the popular kid they were not.

kids are messed up these days. Its extremely unfortunate, and I don’t know what else to do about it except not to give them the attention they’re looking for. What else CAN you do? It really just feels like most of the people these days are exactly the same, everyone thinks/feels the same, its ridiculous! I personally can’t stand it and I could’ve gone off the deep end just thinking about it… Then I met my wonderful gf and she saved me :)

All is explained in the South Park episode with Paris Hilton…

Fact from fiction, truth from diction. It is no great mystery the US is like a man before the mirror who forgets what he looks like the moment he turns away when it comes to sex. Tongue in cheek it is said to be something you do in private and not speak if in the open, yet it is used to sell everything from sneakers, cars, soda, bubble gum, burgers etc. Watch any music video from stars who only go by one name now. It is the vehicle for most movies, sitcoms and such. The message is “you are something if people want to have sex with you or if you are sexy” if you are sexy then you will get sex; sex = coolness. Unsexy people are not cool and thus not getting any sex, and to not get any sex or enough of it is to be a dweeb, geek, or nerd. So why would these girls not want to be seen as sexy and hot? If they are they are in the cool bracket, if not they are left to the chess club boys and not the cool boys from the football team etc. And since each generation seems to think of sex for sex sake anyhow anyway is natural and the thing to do or seek after, there is no consequence for posting pics, sexting, or worse. Many do not even see oral sex as sex ala Clinton.
