One of the core principles of humanity is that fact that every human being is born free and equal. However, during the course of history, men have somewhat struggled to follow this notion of equality as evidenced by degrading practices such as slavery and the fact that women were once considered inferior to men. As mentioned earlier, women used to be regarded as sexually inferior to men, to the point where they had to fight to obtain the right to vote, to this day women’s suffrage remains an ongoing issue in the world.

 The article “online with a sexual predator” by Deborah Amos published on August 14 in the ABC News, talks about teenagers who get trapped in an online chatroom with predators. The survey shows that one teen on five had received unwanted sexual solicitations online. Predators use fake account (wrong name, lie about their age, pictures that aren’t theirs). According to Amos, predators are really dangerous. They eventually like to choose vulnerable teenagers who feel lonely or who are feels lost. It is easier for them to get want they want as naked pictures or sex.

The article,"Protecting our children against online predators” by Celine Cooper published on January 24th in the Montreal Gazette News, talks about a story of two teenagers who committed suicide because they were harassed online. Like those two adolescents, some teenagers share naked pictures of themselves to people they have met online. Those strangers usually use fake accounts (wrong name, pictures that aren't theirs) and threaten or harass those youths to send more pictures or money, in order to keep what they consider to be a shameful secret.
