Pornographic website targeting schoolgirls exposes 'terrifying' fears facing girls online

David Vaile speaks to The Sydney Morning Herald (20 August 2016) regarding a recent website exposing photgraphs of schoolgirls.

Mr Vaile said that a culture of reckless shairing of information has been fostered by social sites such as Facebook and 4Chan: "The idea is 'Don't think too much, don't have any respect for your own information or security and don't value anybody else's'."

Vaile also commented that, "Nobody wants to think twice and realise they may be hurting someone. You get this toxic environment of stalking and harassment, and people become desensitised to the reality of the person at the other end of the camera. There's this competitive bragging and trading circle. The younger you are, the harder it is to join the dots and project the consequences."
