  •  Oh man this reminds me of my school (7+ / 0-)

    When I was in I think 12th or 11th grade (in germany we had 13 grades at the time), some guys (some of them were still at our school, but alot of them changed schools after 10th grade because our school had a reputation of giving worse grades for the same work) pulled this horrible bullshit on one of my classmates who i will call David, which is not at all his real name. I wasn't close to him at all, in fact i always sort of found it hard to have even a small conversation with him, but a lot of that was probably due to my own shyness. Anyways, those guys somehow convinced david that he was chatting to a girl from the region. They always took it further and further, and started sending him pictures of the girl that they took from the internet and then nude pictures ect. They somehow gained his trust over the course of a few weeks i think, and then they convinced him to send them nude pictures of him. even after he did that, they didn't actually stop, but took it further and made him shave himself down there and send pictures and then even had him send them a picture with a bananna inserted. The group was i think about 5-6 guys and they apperantly made a pact to never show anyone or tell anyone about this, but one of them leaked it anyways (i'm still not sure which one), so everyone in school knew about it. They released the photos and all the chat logs.

    I still remember how sickening the response was at the time, I'm probably one of like 5 people or so who actually didn't look at the pictures or the chatlogs, but since lots of people were constantly qouting it, i did get a sense of what was in them.
    If i were david, i don't think I could have taken that, but he actually sticked in school and finished 13th grade. Luckily the bullying that did happen, stopped after a couple of months and people started inviting him to parties again ect. but i still remember how sickened I was at pretty much all of my friends and classmates, it really put shit into perspective.

    Anyways, teenagers can be sickening and cruel, unbelievable.

      I don't think any of those guys were ever punished at all,, maybe because it was hard to proof who did it, but maybe just because the school didn't persue it as much as they should have.

        can't believe that he tricked 30 guys. how the hell does something like this even happen. I always assumed that it would be pretty difficult to trick people to send naked photos to someone they haven't met. I always figured my classmate was an exception.

        I guess fear of being embarrassed is also an amazingly powerful source, at least my classmate wasn't blackmailed into doing things.
