Got into an argument with a guy online. I didn't reply to his messages, so he called me a twat and continued to harrass me. I told him that I was going to post screenshots to reddit (where all of his private info and profile pictures would be blurred out) and he threatened to post my profile picture to porn hub. He is fully aware that I am 14 and this is something that doesn't seem legal, but I'm not sure.
First of all, I will suggest that you share your problem with an adult you trust (e.g. parent, pastor, teacher, aunt, etc.) You shouldn't need to shoulder this burden by yourself.
As a minor, you have protections from online predators, and you can contact the authorities. However, I always caution people not to enter the legal arena without speaking with an attorney first to avoid any unintended consequences.
Finally, do NOT get involved in a social media war. Once the trolls pile on you will not be happy.
