My mum told me a billion times not to do half the things I did as a teenager. I thought " meh I'm different, it won't happen to me".
I know it can happen to anyone. I guess as parents we each need to find our own level of comfortable when it comes to these issues.
Sorry OP. For someone who said they would not post I seem to have a lot to say.
That, and the concern she *may* feel she needs to be "sexy" to be attractive or popular or to fit in.

We should not be teaching our daughters that they need to hide their bodies or be ashamed because of the actions of others. What we should be doing is telling men, boys or whoever else that these attitudes to young women or any women for that matter are unacceptable.
I'd like to think that my son will be raised to treat women with respect and not to assume that everything they do is about sex.
@Kaybaby, I think you are doing everything right. Seriously. You have a gorgeous daughter blossoming into womanhood and that's hard. Compound that with today's technology, SM etc and there are no right answers. You do what feels right to you.
I was a mature 13 yo, and while all was done innocently, my friends and I knew when we were being provocative and sought attention. That was 23 years ago, and thank god barely an Internet.
This is such a deeply personal thing. From your posts, you seem very level headed and pragmatic, so I think your daughter will listen to what you have to say.
I'm not saying the ops daughter is bad or anything - from the photo she appears to be stunningly beautiful. And it's certainly not the most troubling photo I've seen on social media. Just that the OP should consider the underlying reasons why the photo was posted before things snowball and bite her on the ****.
