I don't understand. Why is this a bad thing? Why make different laws for teenagers than adults? I was aware of sexual abuse by children on children when I was growing up, and all I could do is make sure I was not a victim by not spending time with those kids. Either make all convicted child pornographers not forced to be on the sex offender list, or all of them must be on the list. There have already been cases where the pictures sexted were not taken consensually, which then again is absurd when we say minors cannot consent to sexual activity nor can they consent to participating in pornography.
