Anti-Sexting Bill from Nanny State

Sexting has returned to the New York State Senate, with Sen. Toby Ann Stavisky reintroducing a bill that is aimed at preventing sexting.
Senate Bill 3439 would direct the Office of Children and Family Services to establish an educational outreach effort teaching youngsters about the ramifications of sending naked or semi-naked photographs electronically. The measure overwhelmingly passed the prudish Senate in the last session, but luckily it died in the Assembly, where they're a little more liberal.
Stavisky's bill justifies its existence by claiming some danger from posting sexually explicit photographs, but it fails to actually elaborate what those consequences might actually be. There is again no Assembly version.
