Teen Vogue Encourages Young Teens to 'Sext' While Social Distancing

Teen Vogue is being criticized by the National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCSE) for teaching their young Snapchat followers how to "sext" in order cope with social distancing thanks to the coronavirus.

Teen Vogue posted on their snapchat story with an explanation on what sexting is and how people should go about doing it. In case you are unaware of what snapchat is, it's an app in which photos can be sent and disappear within seconds after being opened.

NCSE published a blog post on Wednesday, pleading with Teen Vogue to stop encouraging their young followers to “to create child sexual abuse material (child pornography) by sexting during quarantine.”

“Snapchat and Teen Vogue are playing right into sexual predators’ hands,” said NCSE executive director and senior vice president Dawn Hawkins in a statement.

“With the likely surge of young viewers on Snapchat due to quarantine,” Hawkins continued, “it is socially irresponsible for Snapchat Discover to encourage minors to self-produce underage pornography (i.e. child sexual abuse materials), thereby increasing their vulnerability to sexual predators.”

Activist Mommy reports:

The organization also called on Snapchat to stop promoting Teen Vogue’s messages through the app’s Discover feature, which offers news and video content to its users. According to eMarketer, a staggering 92 percent of U.S. teenagers aged 12 to 17 reportedly use the app.

The photos were accompanied by the article: “Dating and Coronavirus: Can You Still Kiss, Have Sex, and Go on Dates During Social Distancing,” NSCE told The Daily Caller.

“The news about the global spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2, has changed seemingly every few hours,” writes “Down To Find Out” columnist Nona Willis Aronowitz, who has previously written for Teen Vogue about sexting, procuring a secret abortion, and more.

“Acceptable behavior during a global pandemic is a moving target, and it can be hard to pin down what, exactly, puts you and your community at risk,” Aronowitz said. “Sex and love can be extra-confusing, because of course in times of stress and uncertainty, all you want to do is seek out intimacy. And yet, in the midst of a pandemic, physical closeness is one of the easiest ways to spread a virus.”

“Online predators use social media platforms to pose as peers and groom children to send them sexually explicit material (i.e. ‘sext’ with them) that they can then distribute and/or use to blackmail the child into other forms of sexual exploitation,” NCSE stated.

“What Teen Vogue is doing by promoting sexing to teens is insidious and harmful,” Hawkins added. “Given what we know about the brain development of adolescents, it is clear that discussing ‘the importance of consent’ while promoting sexting for minors does not protect those minors from the dangers of sexting — even coerced sexting. The law generally does not recognize minors’ ability to consent.”

Here are some of the screenshots of Teen Vogue's story:

Research shows that sexting is often linked to offline sexual coercion, leaving teens inherently vulnerable,” Hawkins concluded. “Additionally, sexting can lead teens to be sexually extorted, sexually abused, or trafficked. Sexting is not harmless fun, as Teen Vogue would like teenagers to think, and Teen Vogue and Snapchat would be wise to stop promoting sexting to young, impressionable teens.”
