Speaking Of Cell Phones

As long as we're talking about cell phones, here's a bit (a few weeks old now) from a USA Today piece:
Cingular Wireless, the nation's largest cellphone service provider, quietly has
launched filtering devices and password-enabled blockers that help thwart
underage consumers from buying adult content.

It's a nice piece, but it ignores an unsettling reality. Children do not need to buy their porn on a cell phone. All they need is a friend to send some homemade disturbing imagery for free.

Here's a quiz for you. All you have to do is guess which one doesn't involve a 9th or 10th grade student. Remember though, just because you got it right is no reason to cheer. And if you're squeamish, well, maybe you'd better skip this one. Just to be safe, I made the text white on the choices. Highlight them to see the text. To be extra clear, all three of these have circulated at our school, you're just guessing which one wasn't made by students

The cell phone video not made by and starring 9th and 10th graders is:
a) a male beating up a homeless (aka defenseless and uncoordinated) male
b) a male going number two on a female's face
c) a female performing oral sex on a male

Not too difficult was it? Let's give it a day or two and we'll discuss it.
