Jim

As stated above it was their choice, but i don't understand why the second photo is pulled. She could be 20, There is no evidence supporting she isn't.

Johnathan

i am sorry. James Andrews is incorrect. John is correct.

Johnathan

James Andrews is correct. I have been studying law and rights for the past twelve years and i come from a family of lawyers. There is a distinct difference between child nudity and pornography. Child nudity is only pictures or video clips of a child nude with NO sexual activity once so ever. Child nudity videos are only legal when a the child being exposed is recording the video. Child pornography is any kind of video of a child that is shown to the public that contain any kind of sexual activity (sexual intercourse, masturbation, etc).

Child nudity is in fact not illigal but is demanded to be removed as soon as discovered. Child nudity is only legal if the child in the picture is holding a camera and the camera is visible. The only way the person, website, or in this case the owner of this application can be sent to court is if he/she is getting sued. In no means is it necessary to completely remove the object (the app. in this case)due to children posting pictures of themselves nude. The best solution to the problem is by adding a flag key on this app so the people who viewed the image of the child can report the image to be deleted as soon as possible.

Child pornography, on the other hand, is strictly illegal. If a picture of a child having sexual intercourse was posted on this app, again the best solution is to delete the picture immediately. I do not understand why sexting is classified as child pornography but that is something i have not learned. Sexting in my opinion should be legal. If the receiver shares the picture of the sender and people harass the sender, it's their problem. It should just be sext at your own risk.

I believe it was not necessary to delete this application due to child nudity.

15 YEAR OLDS HAVE A WHAT?!?! WHAT THE HELL?!?! YOU'RE JUST THE PERV WHO WANTS THIS ON THE INTERNET!!! That 15 year old girl needs a good BEATING from her parents and a BIG dose of humility!

John

This is not porn it's nude girls, there is a diffrence. They have a constitutional right to do this.

They should repost the App and call it Rate-A-Skank under the iTeen Porn category.

Still no StarPlayr or Howard, but now there's an App for that, anonymous under age freak show. Wonderful.

Calvathson

First, GAWKERs aren't desperate for any kind of attention, GAWKEEs are.

Second, if the girl listed her age as 16, how did she transform into a 15-year-old?

Slow down...

Next up for the chopping board: PhotoKast, PhotoSwap, Grindr X, WhosHere, BrightKite.

Further down the road: Facebook, Twitter, FlickIt and just about any social networking application with direct messaging and photo upload built in. And of course Mobile Safari.

The bottom line is, Apple should draw a clear line as to why it has that parental controls and age rating system implemented in the first place.

The iPhone is an expensive device owned by many an adult, and any attempt to keep it child-friendly (beyond the aforementioned ratings and restrictions implementation) is bound to end up circumvented.

Just create an Adult category, restrict access with age verification, and be done with it. It's not a new concept.
