#NowMattersL8R 

Almost everyone today has a cellphone & social media account- Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, etc. Sending, posting and sharing nude pictures & sexually explicit videos have become a problematic issue for schools and parents. These acts contribute to violations of Louisiana's sextingcyberbullying and/or other sexual abuse laws.

However, in an over-sexualized society with a billion dollar pornographic industry, many people have become desensitized to the issue of sexual violence. Becoming insensitive to abuse contributes to the general acceptance of sexual violence and criminal activity. People, especially teenagers, often do not realize until it's too late that their negative actions today can have very serious consequences later.
