Shocking: More Outrageous Social Media Content Is Now Available To Our Kids

Social media is extremely popular with today’s teens and young adults.

It is the primary form of communication for America’s youth but has brought many concerns for parents in keeping our children safe from inappropriate content and dangerous situations.

Now one of the most popular social media sites for teens is yet again allowing harmful content to be posted – and anyone can access it.

Snapchat is a preferred form of communication for young people and is, in fact, used by many kids that are pre-teens or even younger.

The app allows for users to send messages, photos, and videos instantly that then disappear after being opened.

Posted content can be viewed by “friends” for 24 hours, but the rapid disappearance of posts makes it a minefield for parents who want to monitor their child’s social media use.

Snapchat’s “Discover” section features supposed news content from different media sites and is almost always liberally-biased.  The content is often sexually explicit, but any Snapchat user – even kids – can access it.

Now, Snapchat is welcoming the U.K.-based site, PinkNews, a rabidly pro-homosexual site that boasts being the most visited LGBT site in the world.

Mommy Underground previously reported on Snapchat including sexually-explicit content in its Discover section, like a channel from Cosmopolitan Magazine called “Cosmo After Dark” that featured blatant pornography.

Due to the efforts of concerned parents and a watchdog group that fought to have the channel removed, it was discontinued.  But now we see there is plenty more disturbing content to be accessed by our kids.

Snapchat has been placed on the “Dirty Dozen” list for 2018 by the National Center for Sexual Exploitation because of its sexual and mature content, and the fact that any child with the app can access it.  This list is comprised of sites that parents should make sure their children avoid at all costs.

LifeSite News reported:

“While Snapchat has made some minor improvements to allow Discover publishers to age-gate content, Snapchat still does not allow users to opt-out of sexually graphic content,” the Center says.

“Not many parents would be comfortable with their tweens and teens having immediate access to articles like these.”

One recent PinkNews article appearing on Snapchat’s Discover section was about a 10-year-old drag queen named “Desmond is Amazing.”  Yes, 10 years old.

PinkNews pays special attention to the topic of religion and homosexuality, calling out Christians for discrimination for not accepting the LGBT’s progressive agenda and the indoctrination of our children.

The same advocacy group that helped to bring down “Cosmo After Dark” has been monitoring Discover, and the content is shocking – discussions of “gay” sexual encounters, having multiple sexual partners, genitalia, and a feature on people who identify as “androgynous.”

For now, PinkNews is still up and running on Snapchat’s Discover, and there is little that parents can do to block content.  The app was, after all, designed by college students as a way to send illicit messages that would not be saved long for anyone else to see.

They are far from concerned about the nature of their content — or who has access to it.

Parents should discuss with their pre-teens and young teens about the content that appears on Snapchat and should disable the app on their child’s cell phone.

As with any social media usage by kids, parents should lay down ground rules, strictly monitor their online use, and keep an open-ended conversation going about the risks.

Mommy Underground will keep you up-to-date on any developments on this story.  With the help of outraged parents and the group Protect Young Minds, it is our hope that this “news” site will go the way of “Cosmo After Dark” and disappear from Snapchat altogether.

Does your child have Snapchat on their cell phone?  What do you do to monitor their social media use?  Leave us your thoughts.
