Digital Drama

Sexting, constant messaging, demanding information, spying, digital disrespect and cruelty can have serious consequences. Sexting, for example, can end you up in jail in some states for child pornogrophy charges and cause you to register as a sex offender - even if the pictures you send are of yourself. And all of types of digital abuse can cause severe emotional damage. And that is not cool. Ever.

MTV has created athinline.org in order to stop digital abuse. A Thin Line describes each type of digital abuse and has questions you can ask yourself to help clarify whether or not what you are doing or experiencing is abuse -there are even a few links to thesafespace.org. And if you are experiencing digital drama, athinline.org has resources that you can use to help you stop the abuse.

Digital abuse has serious consequences, and it’s important to know where you stand and what you can do if you are facing online abuse. So head on over to athinline.org and find out how you can protect yourself!

Remember, that if you have questions about your relationship, thesafespace.org is here to help. Just email askanything@thesafespace.org .

  2. I know I'm glad that MTV has taken a stand and is seeking to eliminate sexting. I hope that other large corporations and media outlets will support their efforts and bring hope to a future without sexting.
