Just because no one wants to look at your naked body, doesn't mean they don't want to look at naked pictures of a man.

I don't want to look at pictures of other naked men either. Even body builders or models.

That's fine, me and you just don't swing that way. Other people do, is it hard to understand? Just because you're not attracted to men, doesn't mean other people aren't.

This is bad and I don't mean to sound like I'm victim blaming, but I think they should teach people to not take or share photos of yourself that you wouldn't want anyone to see. I always jokingly say, "Don't put stuff online that may be used against you in a court of law" or used against you in general. Anything you do digitally can get put online, even if you don't agree to r are aware of it.

Girls need to be taught that you shouldn't have to send nude photos of yourself for a guy to like you.

I had a friend who was super homophobic and it turned out he was gay, but he soon admitted it and came to terms with it. He's open about it now.

I don't feel this is Cubed's issue and don't feel he's gay. I feel he has insecurity issues regarding his own masculinity.

Not quite sure what a fitting punitive measure would be for this, but it's crazy that it's not illegal. It's a cut and dry violation of privacy rights.

I can't imagine anyone over the age of 18 thinking this is in any way an acceptable way to "get back at someone".

Cause and Consequence. I just don't understand why someone would be upset at poor decisions that they made. it's definitely a crappy thing to do, don't get me wrong and extremely immature on the part of the other but at the end of the day those pictures or videos were given to the other person. They have to know these decisions carry consequences and most relationships don't really last, especially if you're young. Educating teenagers better on the consequences? sure, this is something that could be used taught in one of those jr. high assemblies or health class. People are sh-tty and do things they shouldn't, that's life.

This march however shows everything that's currently wrong with culture of people expecting to be protected or feeling like victims about stuff they should know better. I also think this is a complicated issue as people will continue to send each other private pictures and videos, your grandparents would've done so as well if they had the technology we do now, it's perfectly normal what we're seeing, it's not that today's youth are perverts, they just have another way of expressing their sexuality which other generations didn't have. So yeah, educate the youth through PSA and whatnot, this should be an episode of Degrassi not a march, what next? Marching because cigarettes made them addicted?

With that said I'm out, I gotta surf the webternet for Andrew's confirmed leaks. will return with the spoils.

If you don't take them, they can't exist to be used as "revenge".

Also, polaroids are kind of back.... mini printer that connects to a phone... lol

I'd trust a partner to see me naked, but I wouldn't take any kind of digital image of myself or partner bare a$$ed. Its not a neccessity in life.

I absolutely love the idea that people think our grandparents didn't have the technology to take and send each other dirty pictures.
There have been dirty pictures for as long as people have been able to make pictures.

Holy crap, you all are acting like you never make bad decisions.

Just because you make yourself vulnerable to someone's cruel actions doesn't mean you deserve this to happen.

Especially younger women (or whomever) who are dying for acceptance or relationships do all sorts of stuff they'd rather not in order to keep a partner and because they don't think it will come back to haunt them. And the abuse and bullying they might experience if other people see said revenge porn can be enough to make someone suicidal.

The march obviously won't do anything except raise awareness, but that's what's needed to change policies.

This. I, for one, want to live in a society where young people (and everyone else) are able to get drunk/have fun/make mistakes without having their lives ruined.

Your grandparents? Aren't they from the early 1900's?

Hell my grandparents were born in 1927-1930, so that means they largely grew up in the late 40's and 50's. They didn't have technology back then.

That's very liberal and extreme of you. People can learn from others mistakes and make better choices of NOT sending nudes to every last person they "date" or hookup with. It didn't take me getting drunk to know I didn't want to do so. I watched my friends drink until they couldn't stand up.

Accept responsibility for your own actions is all I'm saying. Don't want naked pictures to haunt you, don't take them and stick them on Twitter or snapchat or text them or IM to anyone. Sharing it with someone almost 100% guarantees someone else will see them. To think otherwise is pretty stupid.
