It's not THE problem. It's a factor. Additionally, I think the lack of consequence these preditors face has been unbelievable. There's lots of shit wrong, I just haven't seen parenting ever brought...

I don't understand your solution.

How are you supposed to change a preditor? They are sadistic.
You have to take away their access to underage fans. (As old as the "don't talk to strangers"...

Social media is a huge part of the problem. It's dangerous for children because preditors exist.

So, per our example here, you believe that if the band couldn't personally communicate with her over the Internet, they still would have somehow found her? I don't believe that.
The only reason they...

I strongly disagree. Kids need to be taught to judge danger. And for a kid, social media/the Internet in general is a dangerous place.

There are predators out there waiting for this shit. It's part...

I think the problem is, the example I've been using the whole time is the Neck Deep situation. Usage of the Internet is unfortuneatly how she fell victim to them.

That's not what we're discussing. We're discussing band members taking advantage of underage fans.

I don't agree with you that educating fans to be preventative is a waste of resources.

I honestly find it laughable that you think these band guys are going to have an epiphany and change... They're...

I'm definitely not saying they're letting it happen. I'm saying they can certainly help be a part of prevention.

Agreed.
Turned into a shit show real quick. Just trying to speak from a preventative standpoint instead of continuing the redundant blaming of evil for being evil. How can we stop this bullshit from...

Not sure how you twisted my words into that.

If you don't think parenting is important then I don't know what to tell you.
The assaulter is obviously always to blame. I never said otherwise.

Read it. She thinks it's a joke. That's what gets to me.

Monitor their online activity. That's a GREAT start.

I want this Neck Deep blogger's mother and father to read what she's written. If she were my child, I'd be terribly disappointed in myself.

I respectfully completely disagree. It's the parent/guardian's responsibility to DISCOURAGE the behavior, and keep their child safe.
