You get a choice this week! For your original post, please respond to either Option 1 or Option 2, then be sure to respond to at least one of your classmates’ posts.

Option 1: X-rated videos and Upskirting! (This question has 2 parts.)
     Part 1: X-rated videos are a multibillion-dollar business in the United States, which some argue contributes to increased violence against women and the desensitization of sexual assault crimes. Give your opinion on this issue, and discuss the extent to which you think social media helps to foster this belief. Justify your position.
     Part 2: Given the proliferation of smartphones and advancements in smartphone technology, “upskirting” has become a crime in some states. Explain this crime, determine whether your state recognizes it as a crime, and explain how it is related to an invasion of privacy. Justify your position.

Option 2: “Megan’s Law”
    From the e-Activity, determine if there are any sex offenders living within a 3-mile radius of your address. Next, discuss whether or not you believe that in addition to registering as a sex offender, the offender should also be prohibited from using any form of social media networks that allow children to join or is the restriction of the use of social medial a violation of their 1st Amendment rights? Justify your position.

    e-Activity: Use the Internet or the Strayer Online Library ( to research the implementation of Megan’s Law in a state of your choice. Next, review the sexual offender’s registry of your selected state.
