Greens MP Adam Bandt should publicly apologise for promoting the objectification of young girls’ bodies.

In a tweet by Bandt at the weekend he praised Fitzroy High School for teaching school girls as young as 12 the ‘right’ way to send explicit images of themselves.

Australian Christian Lobby’s Centre for Human Dignity Director Wendy Francis said, “Under Commonwealth law sexting with anyone under the age of 18 is illegal.”

“Adam Bandt is promoting a program which not only sexually objectifies young girls, but also endorses illegal activity.”

“This is not the sort of program a federal member of parliament should be promoting.” Said Mrs Francis.

ACL calls on Adam Bandt to apologise for publicly promoting this program which encourages young children to engage in an illegal and degrading act.
