Jennifer really liked this one guy at school, and they had become good friends - very close actually, not yet dating. At some point along the way they started talking late at night, texting each other and checking on each other's day. He was super nice, always wanted to know how she was feeling, whether she wanted to eat lunch with him the next day. It was perfect!
Until, one day, kind of out of nowhere, he asked her to send him pics, and not just any kind of photos, not just some harmless selfies, but, well, you know - dirty ones. HE ASKED HER TO SEND HIM PICS WITHOUT CLOTHES, compromising pictures.
Jennifer was surprised, of course, and said no, but he kept begging her and pleading, and she really, really like this boy, so she changed her no to a maybe. Part of her tried to talk they other part out of it, and she really didn't know what to do. After a little while, he asked her play this game with him over the phone that they all were playing, except he said that "the loser has to send pics undressed." She wanted to play, but asked him for something other than those kinds of pics for the loser, so he said "how about some bottom pics?!"
She agreed, they played, and of course she lost. And, as she had promised, and being the loser, she sent him a couple... He liked them, a lot, to say the least.
Later, he wanted more. And she said no, she had kind of had enough of that game, but then he sent her a picture of his you-know-what. Now she really didn't know what to do and he kept asking and asking and so finally she was just like "FINE" and sent him pics of herself in a her top - her body, her chest. And then he asker to take her top off, so she did, and covered herself with her hands, and he texted her to send it without her hands there and so she covered herself with emojis and sent it. And then he asked her to take the emojis off, and again she was like FINE - and she did, she removed the emojis and send him the pic.
Needless to say, he was very excited about this and started asking for more pics, being kind of pushy about it too and at that point Jennifer just said no, that that was enough and to stop asking her.
A month later, while her Mom was driving her and her friends, she overheard them talking to Jennifer about the pics and the boy she liked and the whole thing. Her Mom found out! Her Mom made her go with her to a therapist and talk about what happened, and when they asked if she had sent any photos to the boy she liked when he had sent her some, she lied and said no. She was embarrassed and a little bit ashamed, knowing she shouldn't have do this.
But then her Mom threatened to take it up with the school and to get the boy she liked in trouble and that was it, Jennifer had to tell the truth. And her Mom was there for her, and comforted her, and understood, but also let her know that she couldn't do that anymore, that those kind of pictures could make their way around the Internet and get her into trouble some day, and to be more careful with what she sends! She sent pics to
Oh, and, she got grounded for a really long time too, but honestly, she had already learned her lesson, and being afraid of those photos coming out was punishment enough. But still today, no one found out.

I've always said sending nudes is like giving someone a loaded gun to use against you whenever they feel like it. You're literally giving them the leverage. One of the dumbest things you can do.
And I speak from experience sadly.
If anyone ever asks me to do this, this is what I’ll send:
“Send me nudes”: sends a hairless cat, a chicken, or my hand flipping them off
“Send me dirty pics”: sends a picture of Pigpen
“Send me a hot pic” : sends a photo of Spike in the desert or a barbecue fire
One day in my school this girl sent nudes too her boyfriend and he sent them to his friends the administration found out and she said she wasn’t naked but she was and everyone who sent them out got there phone taken away for 4 months and the girl got suspended for like a month
Guy: Send nudes
Me: No way, or something else
Me: Sends a picture of a Cheese Pizza
Me: Like it now?
Guy: Ok, you showed me, huh just a picture of a, Cheese Pizza
Guy: Okay, then
Me: It looks delisous that I want to get a, Cheese Pizza! 😉
Some girls's nudes got leaked at school. The worst part is that she showed her face hella clear. Her cousin was in my grade (the girl was a year younger) and was actually really good friends with me. The girl ended up moving schools cuz of it :/ high school can be dangerous
Oh please. Women always make themselves to be the victims. She sent those pictures voluntarily. No one can force you to take pics and your mom is disgusting for trying so hard to punish 2 teenagers for acting like normal teenagers.
Governors: senators (or knights) who ruled the provinces of the Roman empire.
The first Roman province, Sicily, was conquered after the First Punic War (241 BCE), and the Senate decided that it had to be ruled by a praetor. This meant that civil (not military) law was applied -at least under normal circumstances- and that the new territories were governed by magistrates who served a limited time. The Romans never did change these principles, although other types of governorship became more important: the propraetor and proconsul were, as their names suggest, former praetors and consuls who stayed in a territory they had recently or not yet fully conquered. The revolutionary politician Gaius Sempronius Gracchus legislated that these promagistrates were to be appointed by the Senate (123 or 122).
The governor of any Roman province always had four tasks.
To start with, he was responsible for the taxes. As the Senates financial agent, he had to supervise the local authorities and the private tax collectors, the notorious publicans. To facilitate things, a governor could mint coins and negotiate with wealthy institutions (e.g., temples) that could advance the money. His second task was that of accountant: he inspected the books and supervised large scale building projects. Next to these financial tasks, the governor was the provinces supreme judge. Appeal was not impossible, but the voyage to Rome was expensive. He was supposed to travel through the main districts of his province to administer justice in the assize towns. Finally, he commanded an army. In the more important provinces, this could consist of legions; but elsewhere, there were only auxiliaries.
Under the late republic, the number of provinces rapidly increased, and therefore, Pompey the Great proposed a new law, the Lex Pompeia de provinciis , in which former praetors and consuls were obliged to become governor five years after their term in office (53). At more or less the same time, he had himself elected as governor of several provinces, which were not governed by himself, but by his representatives, the legati .
The emperor Augustus copied this idea when he changed the empire, until then ruled as a republic, into a monarchy. He was made governor of almost all provinces with legions, and used legati to rule them. At the same time, the rest of the empire was governed by proconsuls. So, there were two types of governors:
Proconsuls. In fact, these men were not former consuls, but former praetors. They governed the senatorial provinces and typically served twelve months. Only the rich provinces -Asia and Africa- were entitled to a proconsul who was indeed an ex-consul. Legati Augusti pro praetore. These men served in the emperors provinces with the armies (the imperial provinces ). Usually, their term in office lasted thirty-six months, although the emperor Tiberius preferred longer terms.
There was a third group of governors. In several unimportant provinces, prefects were appointed. Usually, these military men governed parts of larger provinces. The best known example is Pontius Pilate, who governed Judaea, an annex to Syria. Prefects were not senators but knights. Egypt was also governed by a prefect, not because it was unimportant, but because it was the emperors own possession. When Septimius Severus conquered Mesopotamia, he used the same construction.
After the mid-first century, the prefects were gradually replaced by procurators (except for Egypt). The only difference is that prefects were soldiers and procurators were fiscal officials. It tells something about the success of the Pax Romana .
