The Hunting is a masterclass for adults and educators on WHY our teens are engaging in online sex and sharing nude photos despite the grim warnings they regularly receive.
The four-part series also explores how ‘good kids’ (though I loathe that term) feel pressured to share photos. Best of all The Hunting shows parents how to respond to a nude-photo-incident in a way that is loving but also insists our kids take responsibility for their actions. It educates us on the mixed messages our teen girls receive, on the gut-churning misogyny and sexism many teenage girls face on a daily basis from male classmates, the rules surrounding masculinity and the ineffective and sexist ways so many schools are choosing to deal with the issue. I think it’s pretty clear by now that scaring kids with stories about jail time or criminal records isn’t working.
