What we know about the ‘Reddit Sex Stories’ feature, and why we should be worried about it
The social network has been working to remove child pornography and other content related to child exploitation for several years, but the “Reddit Sex Story” feature is a first step toward making it harder for pedophiles to prey on children.
The feature, which debuted earlier this month, allows users to share links to sexually explicit videos and images that have been posted by users of the social network.
A person can also specify that the post they are sharing is from someone they know, or from someone that they are dating or married to.
The post must include a link to a child pornography site or child pornography-related material, and it cannot contain any children.

A person is also allowed to share photos of the person in question that are “pornographically similar” to the person’s own photo.
The “Reddit Child Pornography Story” features a link that shows a user’s current location, a description of the image, and a link where the user can click to download a file containing the image.
It is the first time a feature like this has been added to the site.
Reddit’s policy is set to be updated in the coming weeks.
Reddit users have the option of disabling the feature in order to keep it off their site, but many have decided to go ahead with the feature and share it anyway.
The program has been praised by the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children, the Children’s Defense Fund, and other organizations.
But some have questioned its legality and said it is a clear violation of users’ First Amendment rights.
The group says that the Reddit feature violates the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), and other federal law.
Reddit has responded to these concerns by saying that the feature is meant to be a way for people to share and discuss content on Reddit without being personally involved.

But the feature has also drawn criticism from users.
“If I share a link on Reddit, I have no way to know if the person who posted it is the child abuser,” one user wrote on Reddit.
“The child abuser may be the person sharing it, but no one can prove that person is the person abusing the child.”
Another user said that the “ladyboy” feature violates a users’ right to privacy, saying that it should be removed.
Reddit announced its plans to remove the feature earlier this year.
The company says that it was working to implement an opt-out system for the feature, but that it could take up to five years before that happens.
“We are committed to keeping Reddit safe and welcoming everyone who wants to share their thoughts and opinions on all aspects of the Internet,” Reddit said in a statement.
The announcement comes as a growing number of people are becoming worried about their online privacy.

Some users have been posting about the “Child Porn Story” section in a bid to keep their online safety secure, while others have posted that they would prefer that they could never share the images.
Reddit said that it has already removed over 50,000 posts that violated its terms of service.
Some have said that they will continue to post “liked” content from the site in the hopes that it will keep them safe.
