SHUT DOWN TEENVOGUE.COM: “A Parent’s Worst Nightmare”

May 19, 2020 by

Petition from CitizenGo:

Enough Is Enough (EIE), a national organization fighting to make the internet safer for children and families since 1994, is calling on Conde Nast to shut down its rogue digital publication  altogether for its long-term, reckless negligence evidenced in its sexually-exploitative articles encouraging its teen and tween audiences to engage in risky and often illegal sexual activity, including producing child pornography by sexting.

As reported in the Daily Caller, Teen Vogue took full advantage of the COVID 19 pandemic when it recently publicized its “sexting” articles on Snapchat’s Discover Feature featuring photos including: “Sexting should make you feel good,” and “How to Sext: The Best Tips and Tricks.”  In its “Dating and the Coronavirus” article which accompanied the photos, author Nona Willis Aronowitz stated, “There are all kinds of creative, fun ways to sext, if you’re at that level.”

“Sexting,” or sending explicit or nude pictures or videos to others via cell phones, computers, social media or any digital device, may be a crime under both federal and state laws when the person depicted in the images is under the age of 18 years old. State teen sexting laws prohibit the sending and receiving of sexually explicit images. Sexting laws vary by state, and some states have adopted laws that prescribe penalties aimed specifically at teenagers or adolescents who send such photos.
