Every now and then, a scientific study comes out that reveals a disturbing fact, even though we cannot ascertain exactly what it means or why it’s true.
For example, a recent study shows that sexting is especially high among Latino and black teens.
So why are Hispanic and black kids indulging in this risky behavior? Don’t they know that “sexting can be associated with bullying” or extortion? And does this have anything to do with the higher rate of teen pregnancy among young Latinas (which mercifully is falling).
The researchers basically say, “Hell if we know.”
But clearly, taking pictures of your junk and sending it to strangers isn’t just for FBI agents anymore.
Somehow, that thought isn’t comforting.
