There’s a reason why the public tends to revel in hacked or stolen nude pictures. It’s because they were taken without consent. Because the women in them (and it’s almost always women who are humiliated this way) did not want those shots to be shared.

If Jennifer Lawrence was to pose naked on the cover of Playboy, for example, I’m sure it would be a best-selling issue. But it wouldn’t have the same scandalous, viral appeal as private images stolen from her phone. Because if she shared nude images consensually, then people wouldn’t get to revel in her humiliation. And that’s really the point, isn’t it? To take a female celebrity down a notch? (We have a term for when this is done to non-celebrity women: β€œrevenge porn.”)

Ò€” What’s Wrong With Checking Out Leaked Nude Photos of Celebrities - Entertainment - The Atlantic

I mean, I’m not saying that we can enforce this as law or anything. I also might be wrong about this. But:

Just as a general rule, I feel like we should not look at pictures of the breasts or genitalia of people who would rather we not look at pictures of their breasts or genitalia.

As a corollary to that general rule, I would add that I don’t see anything wrong with looking at pictures of breasts or genitalia of people who have invited us to do so. There seem to be plenty such pictures for us to get a reasonably good grasp of, like, the diversity of unclothed human anatomy without having to look at people who wish we wouldn’t.

This seems pretty straightforward to me. Yes, the photographer(s) who photographed Kate Middleton’s grainy distant breasts were violating her privacy. But so do people who choose to look at those pictures.

So maybe we can just agree not to? And this goes not only for princesses, I would argue, but also for people who send things to their romantic partners, who turn out to be jerks and release those photos publicly. Or people whose phones are hacked. etc.

In this world where most every curiosity can be satiated, it seems to me genuinely heroic to resist the urge to look at everything that can be seen, and instead to respect the wishes of those who feel violated or hurt by the availability of images they wish were private.

Seemed a good day to reblog this.

It's saddening to see all these people with M.E or Fibro :c I've known about the illness since a friend of mine was diagnosed three years ago at the age of twelve and since then, I've seen it affect the lives of so many people. I want to send my heart out to anyone and everyone who's been touched by this illness, I've seen what it can do and anyone who's managing to suffer through it deserves a massive hug! To any of your followers who suffer through this, Keep soldiering on, you're doing great!

yes to everyone suffering, big hugsβ™₯!!

Hi beckii! I'm not sure if you've already been asked about it, but what's your take on the nude leaks?

fucked up how people think its ok to do that!! again all goes back to entitlement, ‘just because you can doesnt mean you should’, dont look, theyre not for you, they were stolen, you are literally sexually violating her by looking, my heart really goes out to her because nobody should have to endure that. but: with the sheer amount of celebs involved in this leak, i hope it will spark some serious conversation about intimate photo sharing and taking in the modern age, because frankly a lot of people are not educated on the severity and the sick people who are out there before it’s too late :(Β

The only sort of pictures you should be reblogging of Jennifer Lawrence

have unfollowed 20+ blogs on here already and i will unfollow anyone else who reblogs nude photos taken NON-CONSENSUALLY from these women. Β it is sexual violationΒ (fueled by the objectification of women) and anybody who participates that is the literal scum of the earth

I think it’s harder to be nice and accepting of yourself than it is to be to others.
