The Bendigo Advertiser reports today police are investigating the creation of a new Facebook page posting explicit photos of Bendigo teenagers.
The page is called “Bendigo’s biggest sluts”.
Charming, isn’t it?
The page comes just a week after a “Bendigo Hotties” page raised concerns underage girls were having their photos used without consent.
This time around concerns have been raised that some of the photos shown on the page were girls as young as 13 years old.
As if it’s not vile enough that some people obviously think it’s OK to make public comment on a social networking site about other people’s sexual behaviour.
But to bring children into it? Now that’s just disgusting.
According to today’s Bendigo Advertiser report, within hours of the “Bendigo’s biggest sluts” page being created, it had generated more than 1000 “likes”.
This brings up another issue. I think as Facebook users we all have a social responsibility and the finger needs to be pointed not only at the creators of these disgusting pages, but also at the people who condone their existence by “liking” them.
Every action comes with a consequence and it’s time people realised this.
I can’t imagine the distress the young girls identified on this latest page must be feeling – something that may affect them for the rest of their lives.
