You're referring to a completely different situation wherein the footage is taken without permission and without the awareness of the subject. Revenge porn very often involves a photo someone takes of him or herself, and forwards to some jaded asshole who forwards it to someone else. You're applying mrmaczap's argument to something very different.

Victim-blaming is victim-blaming.

And the spreading around of nudes without consent is still the spreading around of nudes without consent.

For me it's the difference between stranger rape and date rape.
The violation is still very real to the victim, but people like Snake and Zap will always find a way to blame that victim for the attacker's transgressions.

If only they hadn't been wearing that.
If Only They Weren't in that neighborhood at night.
If only they hadn't had so much to drink.
If only they hadn't taken that picture...

Then that attacker would have attacked someone else. And that's what this is victim-blaming at its heart: is a security blanket one wraps themselves in in an effort to convince that their own Purity protects them.
And anyone who gets hurt deserves it.


And yes, I would consider revenge porn to be a form of sexual assault.

What reason is there to absolve yourself of the responsibility of considering potential consequences, unintended or not? There's only one person who suffers embarrassment and hurt by their nudes leaking, and that's the person who's in the picture. Thus the onus is on them to be cognizant of what type of person is receiving the pictures and whether it's a smart move to be sending anything. There is also an obvious onus on the receiver to treat the images with respect, but again - who's going to suffer the real embarrassment if they leak?

Some things are beyond your control, like it or not - examples would be the two voyeurism stories you posted on that last page. But for things that are in your sphere of control, you should be vigilant.

Define "blame" for me.

No one asked.

Which is why the victims should have legal recourse, and those found guilty registered as sex offenders.

What a ridiculous idea for a thread. Closed.
