hi Beckii! I was wondering about your thoughts on the ALS ice bucket challenge? ^^

really cool how many people have gotten behind it!

idk i guess i probably have an unpopular standpoint. basically i think that donating to charities is quite a personal thing, and you shouldn’t be pressured into doing so. the ice bucket challenge assumes that everybody has 10$ to give, and i have seen so many people getting antsy that they see people do the challenge but don’t donate, i think that is quite unfair really. i personally also dont like to tell people who to give their money to. i’m conscious that i have some influence on some people’s lives and i try to be responsible with my actions with that knowledge and so i dont want to promote or endorse something i’m not really confident is the right thing for me to do.Β i’m wary of these big viral campaigns, ever since kony2012, where we all spread and donated to this cause which was honestly quite redundant and run by a shady company. i dont want to be caught up in blind viral hype again, so i’m more cautious these days.

ALS is a horrible terrible disease and my heart goes out to anyone who has it or has experienced it in their families, and i hope the many tens of millions raised will really help medical science treat it. i’m really proud of everyone who has donated, or helped spread awareness, and i dont think that this campaign is inherently bad, this is just my opinion on these things in generalΒ

You mentioned in an answer that you hoped this 'leaking' will start conversations about intimate photo sharing. I think the more important point would be a conversation on internet security. Taking and sharing intimate photos with your significant other is perfectly fine, but there are safe ways to do it and sharing a copy with a 3rd party (like iCloud) is not safe. For something so personal I urge everyone to be cautious and keep it between you and the one you love! Not 3rd parties.

I couldn’t fit it in the previous ask, but just to be clear I DO NOT blame the victims, in an ideal world things like iCloud could be trusted, but unfortunately there is scum out there who will break into such things. I just want all people, celeb or not, to be safe and keep intimate photos between you and the person they are for, and if you are ever afraid or feel pressured then you don’t have to take a picture. Be safe, and don’t do anything you’re uncomfortable with.

oh i absolutely do not blame the victims either!! taking nude photos is and should be seen as something totally fine and a really lovely thing you can share with your partner or even just enjoy yourself because youre hot as heque. but when there are assholes who will extort, blackmail, threaten, hurt, steal, leak, all with these photos, we really do need to reinforce the fact that once it’s even digitised, it’s not easy to incinerate, the internet is not built for safe sharing unfortunately. and you should trust nobody because they can turn and something that once was lovely can become a weapon because the world is filled with babies who want to humiliate somebody by looking at them naked without their consent.Β

"It is a form of sexual assault and an act of violence." Please do not compare having a naked picture stolen and leaked to the horror of being physically abused. Both can be traumatizing in their own ways, but to say a leaked picture is an act of violence is just absurd compared to what I and many others have had to experience in our lives, and sadly too many still do suffer in silence. Both are awful and tragic, but they are NOT the same by far.

okay i didn’t write the post, but I interpreted it with a wider definition of violence, inclusive of not only physical violence but emotional as well, which we can’t deny exists. i guess it is not dictionary-perfect, so i apologise if you or any others reserve the word violence for purely the physical kind.Β 

i really feel for your implied own personal experiences and i hope the very best for you and indeed all the other millions of people suffering at the hands of abusers.Β

Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here.

Yet again: strippers invented this shit, okay?  The act and art of performing gymnastics on a pole, no; what the vast majority of the Western world thinks of when they think of “pole dancing”, yes; what is pictured directly above, yes.
Stop associating stripping with stigma.  Stop encouraging the belief that something can’t be sexual in origin and still impressive, or that things created by sex workers can’t be art.
Pole dancing is associated with stripping because strippers were the ones who created it.  Full stop.  The end.  And none of that should decrease your admiration for it the single slightest bit.

Strippers are performing artists. So stop associating them with stigmas. They are classified as adult performing artists.

This is the most un-John Green photo of John Green I have ever seen. It’s real, too, which is surprising because it looks like someone photoshopped John’s face onto Steve Jobs’ body.

THR is also responsible for the infamous “Johnning" incident.
