Modern Ireland at it's most shocking
I realise that I may well be shooting myself in the foot here, and I should probably shut the hell up. but the big news story of the week here in Ireland has disgusted me. Yes I write erotica, and BDSM and kinly stuff, but it's fantasy and not destroying anyone's life.
A 17 year old girl / young woman was videoed, allegedly performing sexual acts on a man by camera phones and uploaded to "social networking" sites such as you tube, facebook etc. and is distraught about the consequences.
Where the hell are our manners gone? Yeah, maybe she should have had more sense but it seems the drink was in and the sense was out and for people to "share" these images that weren't theirs to share in the first place shocks me to the core.
How many of us are so perfect that we don't have our cringe moments? OK for most of us, those cringe moments might be less momentous but this young girls life is ruined by people posting intimate stuff that was none of their business all across the world wide web. Shame on you. Do what you like with yourselves and your own videos but to take footage that was non-consensual and send it viral is a shame upon our nation.
To all those who videoed I want to say: While you were photographing did any one of you look at that girl and think, "crap, she has no idea she's on camera, maybe I should tell her?" It could have been your daughter, sister, niece or best friend. But you did nothing to help her. For shame.
