I-Sexting phantsi komthetho waseSkotland

"Ukuthumelelana imiyalezo nemifanekiso yamanyala ngefowuni" ayilogama elisemthethweni. Ukuthumelelana imiyalezo nemifanekiso yamanyala ngefowuni “Izixhobo ezibonisa ukuziveza kwakho ngokwesini”Yenziwa ikakhulu ngee-smartphones. Okwangoku, "ukuthumela imiyalezo" ngeendlela ezahlukeneyo eScotland kungatshutshiswa phantsi kweminye yemithetho emininzi kwaye ngumcimbi onzima. Amacandelo omthetho angentla zezona ziphambili ekusenokwenzeka ukuba zisetyenziswe ngabatshutshisi. Nokuba siyibiza ngokuba yintoni na, 'ukuthumela imiyalezo ngefowuni' yeyona nto iphambili ebantwaneni nasebantwini ngokufanayo. Kungenxa yokuba umntwana uyavuma ukwenza okanye ukuthumela umfanekiso, ayenzi ukuba ibe semthethweni. Ulwaphulo-mthetho olwenziwe ngekhompyuter lelinye lawona macandelo akhula ngokukhawuleza kulwaphulo-mthetho namhlanje.

Isityholo sokugoba kukungena kwikhondo lokuziphatha ngenjongo yokubangela uloyiko kunye nealam. Yonke okanye inxenye yelo khondo lokuziphatha inokubakho ngefowuni okanye isebenzisa amajelo eendaba ezentlalo kunye nokupapasha izinto malunga naloo mntu.Iya isanda ngakumbi phakathi kwabantwana. Ayibhekiseli ekungcoleni umntu. 

Usihlalo wethu, uMary Sharpe, ulilungu lecandelo labagwebi kunye neKholeji yezobuLungisa. Unamava omthetho wolwaphulo-mthetho kumacala omabini otshutshiso kunye nawokhuseleko. UMary Sharpe okwangoku kuluhlu lokungaziphathi kakuhle ngelixa ebandakanyeka kwisisa. Uyakuvuyela ukuthetha nabazali, izikolo kunye neminye imibutho ngokubanzi malunga neziphumo ezichaphazela ibhulashi yomthetho malunga nokuziphatha okubi ngokwesondo. Ayizokwazi ukubonelela ngengcebiso yezomthetho kumatyala athile.

Umthetho wolwaphulo-mthetho eScotland wahlukile kumthetho eNgilani naseWales nakuMantla eIreland. Bona oku inqaku malunga nemeko apho kunye neyethu iphepha kuyo. Amagosa ezomthetho aziphatha izikhalazo zezifundo kunye neentatheli abazibiza ngokuba "ukuthumela imiyalezo ngefowuni" njengalo naluphi na ulwaphulo-mthetho olunokwenzeka. Benza oku ngokwabantu ngabanye. Abantwana abangaphantsi kwe-16 ngokubanzi baya kuthunyelwa kwi Inkqubo yokuva yaBantwana. Kwimeko yezenzo ezigwenxa ezinje ngokudlwengulwa, abantwana abangaphantsi kweminyaka ye-16 banokujongana nenkqubo yezobulungisa kulwaphulo-mthetho kwiNkundla ePhakamileyo yeJaji.

Ukuba ufunyenwe unetyala lolwaphulo-mthetho ngokwesondo, uluhlu lwezigwebo lubanzi. Ziya kubandakanya isaziso kwiRejista yamaGqwetha amaSondo kule minyaka ingama-16 nangaphaya kweenkqubo zenkundla yolwaphulo-mthetho. 

Kubantwana abangaphantsi kweminyaka eli-16 ubudala, ukwaphula umthetho ngokwesondo kuyakuthathwa "njengokugwetywa" ngeenjongo zoMthetho woBuyiselo lwaBaphuli-mthetho ka-1974 nangona kungabizwa njalo kwiNkqubo yaBantwana yokuva. Kuthetha ukuba baya kucelwa ukuba bachaze ityala elinjalo kumaxwebhu asemthethweni ukuba bafuna ukusebenza namaqela asengozini kubandakanya nabantwana. Eso sidingo sihlala iminyaka esi-7 enesiqingatha ukusukela kumhla "wokugwetywa" ukuba ungaphantsi kweminyaka eli-18, kunye neminyaka eli-15 ukuba ungaphezulu kweminyaka eli-18.

Impembelelo esebenzayo yesenzo sokuziphatha gwenxa ngokwesondo emsebenzini, ubomi bentlalontle kunye nokuhamba umntu ophantsi, nangaphezulu kwe-16, ibalulekile kwaye ayiqondakali kancinci. Imfuno yokuxela ityala elincinci ngexesha lobuntwana liya kusingathwa ukuya kuthi ga kwinqanaba elithile Ukuchazwa (kweScotland) iBhili ngoku kuhamba ngePalamente yaseScotland. Ingcebiso yeyokuba ukugwetywa kwabantwana akusayi kuphinda kubhengezwe ngokuzenzekelayo kubaqeshi abanokubakho kwaye baya kufaneleka ukuphononongwa ngokuzimeleyo kwiNkundla yeNkundla. Le nkqubo yamva nje iya kuba yeyendleko yomntu oselula.

Njengoko i-cyberbullying kunye neSexual Harassment ziyanda, abasemagunyeni bezotshutshiso bathatha indlela ethe kratya. Ootitshala, abazali kunye nabantwana kufuneka bazazise ngobungozi. Iipali ezabelana ngemifanekiso engalunganga abayifumene kwabanye zisenokutshutshiswa nazo.
