What Is Sexual Harassment-Sending Nude Photos?

A fifteen year old boy and girl were dating and enjoying life when the boy asked his girl friend to pose nude for him and she agreed. A few months later the two split and went their separate ways, but the boy was furious and threatened the girl if she ended their relationship he would send her photo to his friends. She ended the relationship and he then sent nude photos of her to all his friends. The boy was arrested on charges of sexual harassment, but appealed the decision. The Svea Court of Appeals over turned the conviction on grounds there is no punishable prohibition against sending photos of someone without their consent. Sexual harassment is construed to entail “reckless behavior” and a “notable violation” of personal freedom.

A key aspect of the court decision stemmed from the fact the girl willingly gave her consent to pose in the nude. According to the court once she made that decision, the boy had every right to send the photo to whom he desired.

Is there something wrong with this decision?

    Finally some common sense from the Supreme Court!
    Because the female person in the relationship actually gave consent for her picture to be taken, then there is no logical or understandable reason other than revenge and retribution for the arrest and lower court conviction of a teenager for sexual harassment.
    My hats off to those members of the Supreme Court who voted to overturn the conviction of this male teenager for acting like a male teenager.
    Really anyone, who publishes nude photos of women or men, should have been worried had the conviction been upheld and the boy put in prison. Publishing nude photos of women or men, is a species long ideal, which should not be overturned by a bunch of prudish individuals, who upon learning that the human body is a tool for enjoyment as well as pleasure-especially looking at it-have always regarded the human body as dirty and shameful.
    The human body is neither dirty nor shameful in extrema, nudity is another form of being, which is enjoyed by most of the world. except in the U.S.
