Father "finds" Underage Daughter on Porn Website

http://www.wrdw.com/home/headlines/F...115342564.html

NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. --- It started several days ago with a phone call, and ended with a North Augusta father on a website he'd never heard of, looking at something he never imagined he would see.

"A friend called me up and said I needed to look at this website. He said he wasn't sure, but he thought he saw my daughter."

Bob (name has been changed) wants to remain anonymous, but wanted to show News 12, and other parents, what he found: a pornography website called "My Ex-Girlfriend," which depicts sexually explicit images. It only took a few seconds of scrolling through the site before he found his daughter's face.

"Have you ever seen when Hiroshima blew up? Well, that's how I felt," he describes. "I was enraged."

What's worse, Bob says, his daughter had no idea the pictures were there. One shows her and several friends, also high schoolers, taking topless pictures in a mirror.

His daughter says they took them at a sleepover for fun, and thought they had been deleted. She says she doesn't know who would have had access to them or posted them online. His daughter is 15 years old.

"It says at the bottom of [the website] that all the people on there is 18 years old. Well I'm here to tell everybody they're not. I'm here to tell everybody you need to go look; your daughter may be on there," Bob warns.

"There's so many ways it can end up on the internet without intentionally meaning to."

Federal law defines child pornography as the visual depiction of a person under the age of 18 engaged in sexually explicit conduct. The website "My Ex-Girlfriend" posts a disclaimer at the bottom of the page, stating all models are of age.

Trial attorney Victor Hawk says the punishment for child porn, if convicted, is aggressive, even if it's done by accident.

"If you have certain types of software, you may not even realize that your computer is open to sharing those images," Hawk explains. "You're held responsible for any distribution, anywhere throughout the world."

As for taking the pictures themselves, Bob says his daughter has learned her lesson. Now, he wants to take action.

"I know it's bad enough when you have kids doing these types of things," he says of the pictures. "But the technology is so powerful, they can put it all around the world in 30 seconds."

"If we can't police the internet, we need to shut it down. If we can't protect our children from it, we need to shut it down."

Bob says he recognized several of his daughter's friends on the site as well. He hopes to come together with other parents and take legal action.

The website is registered to a company in Nevada. News 12 called the number listed and spoke briefly with a man who identifies himself as the site's "main contact." He said he wasn't aware of those specific pictures and said he would call us back after speaking with other representatives. At the time of this posting, News 12 has not heard back from the company and our calls have not been returned.

Topless pictures are not porn.

I think he may have exposed his hand here.

I'll always find someone saying we need to "shut down the internet" funny.

Anyways, don't take nude pics and put them all over your computer, phones and all that and it won't happen. Those girls probably didn't take the pictures "for fun", they were sending them to someone.

Of course it's not about his daughter being a dumb ass.

It's all the internet's fault!

I looked at the site. All it does is redirect to other sites.

I don't buy this for a second.

The father must be pissed. I'm sure consequences will never be the same.

Re: Father "finds" Underage Daughter on Porn Website

at we have to shut the internet down!

I graduated from high school in 2001. When AOL 3.0 took off in the mid-nineties we all were experiencing the internet for the first time; mostly wasting countless hours in chatrooms or waiting for softcore porn to load (usually simultaneously). Now it's pervasiveness has evolved significantly. I remember being blown away by the idea of always on high speed internet in the later years of high school and now we are always connected. There are phones everywhere with cameras and with that the ability to spread information like melted butter on toast.

My point? This is something kids did, do and will continue to do. There were naked pictures of boys/girls from our school that we passed around on Polaroid film, then later scanned into computers and emailed amongst our friends. We'd skinny dip in hot tubs and lakes when parents were away or sleeping. And, of course, we'd fool around anywhere and everywhere if possible. It's not shocking that kids still do this stuff, but it is dangerous that the evidence can be accessed all over, be infinitely copyable and easily dispersed.

The father is blaming the internet, when in reality he should point the finger at himself and his daughter (which I am sure he did, just not in public of course! Heavens no!). It's not the internet's job to protect/educate/RAISE children, it's the parent's job. Awareness is important, but these delusional and lazy apathetic attitudes about new technology are destructive. Being a parent (I assume) is hard work and it's probably harder now than it ever was in many ways. Parents need to educate themselves and their kids about this, not shelter or cut them off. In most cases, the kids know way more about the internet than their parents.


Our mistakes, no matter how innocent, now have more permanence and can echo around us everywhere we go, more so than ever before. Of course, I am not going to defend a website that puts up child pornography and the website should be held legally accountable. I am not excusing that, but the problem is bigger in scope IMHO.

Why doesn't he just backtrace to see who uploaded the pictures to the site.

I'll need to see the pics in order to prove the validity of this statement.

I like that his "friend" let him know about the pictures.

Were the pictures of boobs or tits? As I understand it, boobs are not porn, but tits are. Or maybe it was the other way around.

Well, he tipped his hand there. We now know that "Bob" is in fact Prince.

Something tells me that the whole "We were just taking topless pictures at sleepover for fun, we didnt know they were on the internet" thing isnt exactly true.

Re: Father "finds" Underage Daughter on Porn Website

Notkevinbacon is 100% right.

1. I've told the story on here a couple of times about a nude photo of a student that was passed around my high school photography class in the prehistoric year of 1995. Being 35mm and no one owning a computer meant the image didn't get shared very far. Today it would have been up on the internet in minutes, across the school in an hour, picked up by a flickr group in a day, and eventually added to a website like My Ex-Girlfriend where the whole world could wank to it. Parents need to explain to their kids that images can spread literally around the god damn world now. Kids simply cannot swap sexy photos with one another or there can be big consequences. I recently moved and I just found that picture, I also found a half dozen pictures that some girls on the high school swim team gave me that I had forgotten about. No nudity, but very suggestive shower pictures. I wondered what I would have done with the photos back then if I’d had the internet. Maybe I would have put them up on the internet too. Today I wouldn't make that kind of mistake, but I was pretty dumb when I was 18.

2. I've seen My Ex-Girlfriend. You can tell that 99% of the content was never intended to be disseminated. It's all pictures of chicks holding a camera (or more often their phone) up to a mirror and taking naked pictures of themselves. Also a lot of party pics and slumber party pictures where girls are flashing or fooling around. You can tell the intent of the subjects is innocent. But they texted, emailed, or shared it online and it got out. People (especially hot young girls) don't think about the consequences because in the past they didn't need to.

3. Looking out at the long term, I wonder if society's mores will change. Right now we are all so new to the internet that we are all experiencing a lot of growing pains when it comes to integrating our lives (our real lives) with our virtual lives. People lose jobs because of shit they post on facebook, people fear what they post on facebook will be seen by potential employers, people's innocent photos get plastered all over porn sites, etc. Maybe as a society we will evolve a new attitude, a new social custom, where what happens on the internet stays on the internet, what we do in our virtual lives isn't discussed in our walking lives. Maybe once we've lived with the internet long enough we will change. A world where you can post the wet t-shirt photos from your trip to Cancun and none of your coworkers bat an eye because they have a flickr page filled with pictures of themselves on a nude beach, or a web page for fans of genital piercing or something else. A world where your online personality is treated no different than any other hobby.
