The massive privacy violation that exposed naked pictures of numerous celebrities has inspired a lot of discussion about taking, sharing, and storing private images. Because this is the Internet, there’s a fair amount of awfulness mixed in with the scattering of sensible comments.
*I* post my most private photos. And if I didn't want naked photos of myself online, I wouldn't take them or let others take and keep them. If someone doesn't want their pictures out there, then they shouldn't trust others with them... *especially* being a celebrity. Now shuffle off back to your fandoms and hipster photos with filters, little girl.
First of all, she didn’t trust the wrong person. She was hacked. And even if she did trust the wrong person, that doesn’t warrant the right for someone to take someone else’s private photos without their consent
When you post your photos, it’s by your consent. Thats different. And by telling people that they should just not “take them or let others keep them” doesn’t solve the problem. It just teaches girls that when things like this happen, it’s their fault, not the person who took the photos and posted them. It’s the same way girls are taught not to dress a certain way because it could warrant sexual harassment. And if they are harassed, its their fault. It’s victim blaming. And its wrong.
Also, i’m a twenty year old college student who in my breaks from the “fandoms and hipster photos with filters” like to defend woman who have been violated and dehumanized by our society. Thanks.
telling girls to not take private pictures of themselves because they’re going to be stolen is just like saying don’t buy a house because its going to be robbed

new vid babes! SHE ASKED FOR IT.
here are the many reasons why "what was she wearing?" or "you shouldn’t have taken nude pics!" are dumb things to say.
Witnesses say they asked Britney why she shaved her head and her response was, “I’m tired of plugging things into it. I’m tired of people touching me.”
i can never not reblog this
T-Pain: “That was the most beautiful thing in the world. Do you know why she was shaving her head? Because it was so important to other people. She is like, “Listen. Don’t touch my hair anymore. Stop touching my hair.” People were like, “We’ve got to make your hair before you go outside. You can’t leave.” She went … “Now I don’t have hair. What you going to do?”
The older I get the more her breakdown seems less ‘unbalanced’ and more ‘completely understandable’
People get tired of your sadness
