Sexting 101

As a result of a 2011 Texas law, schools in that state are required to provide students with an educational program about sexting. After skimming the course materials online, I took the 30-question quiz and scored only 85%! It didn’t reveal which answers I got wrong, but I suspect I missed some of the technical legal questions, like whether a particular type of sexting could be a class A, B, or C misdemeanor. Many of the questions are more subjective:

If you engage in sexting behaviors, your relationships with friends and family can be negatively affected in what ways?

* A. Others may think of you as “easy” or sexually active

* B. You may attract the unwanted attention of predators

* C. Others may be embarrassed to be seen with you

* D. All of the above
