Coach Resigns After Naked Picture Appears On Facebook

Lost career preferring to resign rather than fight. What do you think of this whole thing?

"SOUTH PARIS, Maine -- The Oxford Hills School Districtís football coach resigned on Monday morning amid the uproar that was created when he accidentally posted a naked picture of himself on his Facebook page last week, according to Superintendent Rick Colpitts.

Colpitts confirms that the district has accepted Paul Witheeís resignation....."

As presented on yahoo http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/highschool-prep-rally/maine-football-coach-resigns-accidentally-posting-naked-photo-233913817.html

"The lewd photo was viewable by the general public and was recognized by a parent of a player on his football team, leading to the coach's self-imposed departure...."

Without knowing the full story I guess the coach decided it was easier to resign than to fight. If it was an innocent photo of simple nudity then it just shows the intolerance of society. However, it seems pretty difficult someone could mistakenly download his/her own photo onto social media.

My few photos do appear here and elsewhere because I intenionally downloaded them - not an accident on my part. Of course, they obviously could be re-posted by others elsewhere without my knowledge. However, the fact they appear at all was not an accident since I chose to post them in the first place. I have also webcammed a few times with a limited few correspondents with full knowledge my images appeared on the internewt where nothing remains secret if oters choose to repot it.

It is interesting that they described it as a "lewd photo". I wonder what that means. Does it mean the writer thinks simple nudity is lewd, or did the photo depict some act that was lewd? For me, that would be an important distinction.

It appears it was a simple photo being nude and only one report called it lewd. I found that upsetting that nudity would automatically linked with nudity. That this should have resulted in resigning I find appalling.

I have nude photos on my fb from Blacks Beach and Munich but carefully not so revealing. I've only had one criticism, my sister.

In my opinion making such an outcry only sexualizes nudity. The police didn't press charges recognizing that it was an accident but the man is out a job and may be unable to get a similar one. Much to do about nothing.

Have a good nude day.

If it was just a simple nude photo, and it was a paid job, he should have fought for it. Even if it wasn't a paid position, he still should have fought for it.

As well, it could be really easy to upload the wrong photo. If you're taking pictures with a digital camera and the pictures are only named by numbers like 968893, if you think you remember the right picture being a certain number and it's not, your facebook friends could be in for a surprise. As well, I know certain cameras have the option to post pictures directly to facebook from the camera, so some problems or loopholes it could happen from that as well.
