Grown Man Teaches Super Pervy Teen Texting 'Lesson'


The message has been made abundantly clear to most of us: Sexting photos of a minor is a crime and will be punished as such. This is true no matter who sends the photos and no matter what the reason they did so. Clearly someone needed to tell this to Eugene Foster, 31, of Arizona. He texted nude photos of his girlfriend's teenage daughter to 30 people and is in a heap of trouble.

At first glance, the story seems sick and perverted. Obviously, this 31-year-old man has no business sexting photos of a teenage girl. But the reason he did so, at least according to police, wasn't sexual at all. In fact, the girl took the photos herself and he was merely "teaching her a lesson."

Now he is the one learning a lesson, eh?

Who on Earth thinks it's funny or helpful to send a naked photo of a young girl to 30 people. Who has 30 friends who wouldn't find that disgusting or disturbing? Anyone?

I know we're supposed to believe he is telling the truth and that was his motive, but it seems to absurd; it's hard to buy as the truth. That is a great cover-up when the truth is much more obscene.

Or maybe it isn't. Because, in fact, he looks like a complete fool right now. Maybe looking like a fool is preferable to looking like a pedophile for him right now.

Whatever the reason he did it, what he did is so unimaginably foolish, it's hard to have sympathy for him. Is public humiliation really the best punishment? Was there no other way to teach this girl not to take photos of herself?

Personally, if I were this man's girlfriend and this girl were my daughter, I would want him charged with distributing child porn because he did. And no matter what the reasons are, he still did it.

It may very well be a misunderstanding, but that is too bad for him. Distributing child pornography is a crime and he committed it. Do the crime, serve the time. Sorry to say, but he is the one who needed a lesson.

Do you think he should be in trouble?

I hope the mom doesn't stand by her man...but they usually do when they have poor enough judgment to pick these guys in the first place...

The title makes it sound like it's the teen who's "super pervy"

Teaching her a lesson? How about sitting her down with her mom and having a conversation about what she had done? Not distributing her photo like some kitty porn king pin.

I think he should obviously be in trouble BUT I do not think he should be thrown in with all the sickos who like child pornography and molest little kids. The man is an idiot and did something illegal. From the actual news story it didn't seem like he was trying to pervy and exploit this girl, even though that is what he unintentionally did. I feel like he should serve a small sentence and take some classes.

I agree, the title is written ass-backwards. Either the grown man is super pervy or the lesson is super pervy, but the title sounds like the kid is super pervy and I'm not sure that is actually the case. Maybe the guy thought the kids WAS and that was his point? Anyway, the whole think is stupid. He's a complete loser idiot and I don't care what his motive was, his actions ARE punishable by law. He should have been mortified to even see those pics, let alone send them out .The mom is an idiot too, if she is sticking by him.

**sidenote: I see all my spelling errors now, and that drives me crazy!

I actually feel for the guy!  Now, of course if it were MY daughter, it might be a different story.  BUT, I can understand his frustration and see where he was attempting to go with this "lesson."  Teens don't understand how quickly things like that can wind up on 30 different strangers phones/computers.  It should be an eye opener for her, but then again...You can't battle wrong with another wrong.  On that note, I have already told my kids that if I find stuff like that on their phones I am forwarding it to their GRANDPARENTS!  They don't want to hear what Nana & Papa will have to say about it!

i'd like to know how he got such privvy information in the first place.  Does he also snoop around in her underwear drawer?  Where is her mother and why isn't she protecting her?  Put the creep in jail and get that child outta there and get her some help.  She must have some sane relatives.

the second paragraph states "In fact, the girl took the photos herself and he was merely "teaching her a lesson.""    That is pretty clear to me.... Read and reread if something doesn't make sense....
