    An American mum could face a year in prison because her 13yr old took a
    snap of her and her 14 yr old daughter topless in the hot tub. WTF?!?!

    The post that was quoted here has been removed
    The mother sounded pretty distraught in the interview and the police say
    they don't think it was deliberate. The "crime' here is the propagation of the photo by the 13 yr old and subsequent recipients.

    But is an innocent topless pic of mother and daughter really sexploitation?
    You go on a beach in the South of France and you see the whole family
    topless. (I believe topless sunbathing is illegal in US ???)

    In the US it's complicated:

    But the alleged crime here would be related to the mother's responsibility to protect her children from predictable humiliation. I see a defense if she had raised them not to be ashamed of publicized nudity so they said, so what? But did they?

    It isn't normal in the US for kids to be naked around naked adults. We tend to think 'child molester' if we see or hear of it.

    Edit: the bath thingy might be OK with a very young child (<3 years or so). But once they can do it alone, you get out and stay out.

    I don't know why Americans are so "uptight about breasts" most of the men have them as well 🙂

    She's not going to get a year in prison. No reasonable judge would levy the maximum penalty in this case.

    I do agree with you that there is some uptightness when it comes to being topless. You can see from this thread that some equate being topless with being naked.

    It is not that complicated. A large organization in the US (Southern Baptist) do everything in their power to make the human body a sin, a dirty act of debauchery and will use even the dirtiest of avenues: politics, to make it so in the minds of every body in the world. It is kind of like what the Taliban does, right?
