Anonymous asked: Re: your "rule about naked people" -- How about people who take nude photos of themselves not be stupid and use storage devices that can be hacked, like cloud storage (or take any risks close to that)? Just HOW much personal responsibility does your generation need to shed before you get it through your thick skulls that it only costs $20 for a decent external hard drive these days? :|

I have been kind of tense lately. Just thinking about the Star Wars sequel. I’m worried they’ll rely too heavily on CGI and I’m carrying it all on my shoulders.

So apparently iCloud was hacked and pretty much every female celebrity’s nudes were leaked. I’d like to remind my followers not to post them, because they’re supposed to be private, and just because some asshole leaked them doesn’t mean you should make it worse by spreading them around.

In the 1890s, when Freud was in the dawn of his career, he was struck by how many of his female patients were revealing childhood [sexual] victimization to him. Freud concluded that child sexual abuse was one of the major causes of emotional disturbances in adult women and wrote a brilliant and humane paper called “The Aetiology of Hysteria.” However, rather than receiving acclaim from his colleagues for his ground-breaking insights, Freud met with scorn. He was ridiculed for believing that men of excellent reputation (most of his patients came from upstanding homes) could be perpetrators of incest.

Within a few years, Freud buckled under this heavy pressure and recanted his conclusions. In their place he proposed the “Oedipus complex,” which became the foundation of modern psychology… Freud used this construct to conclude that the episodes of abuse his clients had revealed to him had never taken place; they were simply fantasies of events the women had wished for… This construct started a hundred-year history in the mental health field of blaming victims for the abuse perpetrated on them and outright discrediting of women’s and children’s reports of mistreatment by men.
…[I’m] very sad that we live in an age when someone takes a picture of another person in a vulnerable moment and rather than delete it, and do the decent thing, sells it. And I’m sorry that we live in a culture that commodifies the sexuality of unwilling participants…

Friendly reminded that “well if they didn’t want those pictures seen they shouldn’t have taken them” is a bullshit response to this situation. 

That’s exactly like saying “Well if you didn’t want your TV stolen you shouldn’t have prominently displayed it in your home.”

These women’s personal belongings were broken into. Their privacy was violated. A crime was committed. It is the same concept as stealing something from someone’s bag when they aren’t looking. 

If they had taken those pictures on a polaroid and kept them in a locked safe? And someone had broken in and stolen them?

IT WOULD BE A FUCKING CRIME. These photos were not easily accessible. 

And even if they were? It is so beyond immoral to share personal photos of someone without their permission. It’s sleazy. It’s ugly. It’s nasty. 

We’re all brought up with porn being in our faces. Men, at least, are expected to consume pornography. It’s stupidly almost considered “abnormal” when they don’t. 

Women are pressured to be sexually attractive. They are pressured to take these kinds of photos and send them out to whoever fucking requests it on kik. 

But the minute those women refuse to give out nudes? They’re stuck up bitches. And when they DO share nudes privately and someone violates their privacy by spreading them? THEY are the ones to blame. Because they should have known better than to take them and share them in the first place, right?

So we teach men to cajole and manipulate and beg for explicit images, but anyone who delivers is a whore and deserves what they get?

Fuck that. Fuck this bullshit. Fuck this society. Fuck these double standards. Fuck the world telling Dylan Sprouse his nudes don’t make him a bad person and that it could happen to anyone and that he’s hot so why not share that with the world, when I expect those same people will be shaking their heads at Jennifer Lawrence and Victoria Justice. 

"I thought they were better than that."

Well fuck you, I thought you weren’t a literal piece of shit, but I guess I was wrong. 

oh so everyone

apparently fucking everyone’s nude photos got leaked

thanks to 4chan

fuck u 4chan

Like tumblr and reddit have immensely shitty sides to them — this is beyond true

but I have never had anyone suggest to me a solid reason for 4chan not being just scourged from the internet by hackers. If I were a hacker I’d do it myself. Alas, I know only rudimentary html.
