The following image is making the internets rounds. If you don’t have an iPhone, you might need some help sussing out what’s happening here. A young woman named Lizzy mistakenly sends an SMS to her Dad. Dad replies she sent the SMS to the wrong person. Then, realizing what “1st time on the beach” really means, Dad sends Lizzy a second SMS ordering her home the next day.
If this iPhone Sex-on-the-Beach SMS is real or not doesn’t matter because it could easily be real enough — I sometimes send an SMS to the wrong person using the iPhone — but the honest danger in this sort private-to-public revelation via instant communication is the lack of a behavior filter, both on the beach, and in the iPhone.
Is there no common decency in the young any longer?
Why broadcast your sexual junctions via SMS where it can be re-fed, forwarded and captured in an image for a necessary scolding in the public square?
In our example today, Dad did the right thing by his daughter. He brought her home and, we hope, provided an appropriate, if stunning, punishment.
