In today’s society, the sex offender registry is filled with young adults at ages ranging from 18-28.

Mike Lombardo-age 25- was convicted for possession of child pornography after he persuaded eleven of his under aged fans to submit photos and videos of themselves to him.

Social media such as twitter, Instagram, vine and many others have made it possible for young sex offenders to obtain their sexual desires with just a tap of finger. These media stars build platforms that catch the eyes of young  teenage girls.

Reports like vine star Curtis Lepore, who pleaded guilty for raping his under aged fellow vine star girlfriend, Jessi Smiles, while she was sleeping appear more and more each day

This epidemic began in 2014 when an 18-year old reported that she had allegedly been raped at party by Youtuber star, Sam Pepper. Pepper was not charged or arrested for the allegations. After the story went viral, more than five teenage victims testified on the internet about their experiences with Pepper.

My view on the situation is that I feel that these stars are taking advantage of their fans. Yes, I believe that some of these girls have the mindset to know what they are doing, but not enough wisdom to understand fully what they are truly doing. For situations where an 18-year old is raped at a party, the blame is fully on the rapist, due to the fact that rape is “rape” when there is no consent. Whereas, sending pictures and videos voluntarily is consent for any sexual activity.

Parents should be monitoring their children, children should stay in a child’s world, and lastly the young men who pursue these teen should question their morals. Who is to blame?

The blame falls on the predators who do have enough knowledge to not pursue young girls.
