    Read this It's fairly long but it's shocking

    I'm watching it on Oprah right now.And it's SUCH a compelling story.I know that alot of members here have kids of their own.So IMO parents and non-parents alike should read this.

    What disturbed me more was that HIS OWN FATHER continued to exploit Justin.And encouraged Justin to continue his webcam porn business because "The money was good". :redface2: 

    How depraved can a person be to allow his OWN SON to do something like this?

    Stories like this make me ashamed to be a man to be perfectly honest.

    Ha, I watched some of this on Oprah. It didn't shock, nor ashame, I mean, people do fucked up things for money everywhere, all the time. It's horrible he was molested and such, but this is everywhere. He just decided to make some money with sex, and then even more so selling his story. Even Oprah said something like "hiding by coming on tv in front of millions of viewers". Lame.

    So the kid made a series of bad decisions? Granted it ended up with some pretty harsh consequences, but it looks like he's eventually turned out OK, and ended up making money out of the deal.

    And BTW I lost any sort of flow trying to read this story a paragraph at a time. Oprah needs a better web designer.

    Another sick, depraved story creating a kneejerk reaction. A call to take away kids webcams is stupid. The vast majority of kids with webcams aren't going to do what he did. They'll use them to talk to friends and the like. There is no reason to inconvenience such a vast majority because the minority is stupid enough to get involved in kiddy porn. Honestly, at 13 he should have known better.

    Silly fucker. Here's an idea, instead of throwing webcams away, why don't parents monitor their child's online activities? I'm a goddamn genius.

    Can't wait for the TV movie, Dumb and Dumbererer.

    Stupid fucking kid. Not sure who deserves to get their ass kicked worse, the kid or the father..or Oprah for that matter.

    That's a pretty broad way of thinking to be honest.

    I know when I was his age I did stuff my parents to this day don't know about.And my parents trusted me so they had no reason to believe I'd be acting out.

    Of course in my teenage years the big thing was smoking cigarettes.Not having your first orgasm at 12 yrs old :redface2: 

    I smoked cigs for a VERY brief period as well as snuck a few sips of vodka from the fridge.Sometimes parents can't be everywhere 03Mach1

    What? At 12 I worked off the national debt by beating it like it owed me money. Seemed like the thing to do at the time.

    I did all sorts of crazy shit starting at 13-14 that my parents don't know about to this day. Smoking, drinking and weed were the ones they did find out about on one level or another, so that says something about what they didn't know.

    And yet I knew enough not to beat off at the request of dirty old men..which, granted, wasn't possible via webcam when I was that age, but nevertheless. I don't blame the parents, well not the mom anyway, for not knowing what was going on with her kid. Most teens keep shit from their parents...but most teens aren't so stupid/naive as to think that it's always hot young chicks (or guys I guess) his age asking him do the things he did. No, I blame the kid for being a dumbass...and the dad for being a sick asshole.

    The problem is parents aren't shaming kids about their bodies enough. If they just shamed the kids more this wouldn't even be a problem until the kids got out of the house and discovered their freedom and by that time you can't blame the parents because the kids didn't start screwing up until they were on their own.

    That's gonna be my parenting style. Shame the hell outta them.

    I read about this in the ny times a couple of months ago. while it is disturbing, I say good for him. I mean, if as a teenage male he's going to be masterbating in his room anyway, why not hook up a camera and bank off of sickos anyway.
