Witness A Verb's Meaning Morphing! (Bonus: Involves Nude Cheerleaders)

How did the cheerleaders text nude pictures of themselves to their boyfriends? You don't text-message a photograph, by definition. Or is the verb "text" morphing into something other than "sending a text message from or to a cellular phone"?

Otherwise, though, I completely agree with the opinions expressed about the incident in this summary. Why the outrage? This is a matter to be handled within the families of the girls in question, not for the school to involve itself with.

The linked blog, by the way, looks worthy of a second look.

I imagine it's using the text-message network enabled on your phone to send a picture, no?

And thanks for the kind words.
