Revenge porn is definitely ******. I feel like a march isn't gonna help, though. Assholes aren't gonna stop because some women marched. Aren't there laws or something?

They're few and far between because a lot of people don't realize this is an issue to begin with.

Or, when they do, they blame the victims.
Hence...the march.

I've actually been revenge porned before. But... what is a march going to do about it? Will people that are thinking about doing it not do it if they see people marching about it, or bringing awareness to it?

You're talking about it now, aren't you?
Welcome to the first step:
Recognizing that there's a problem in need of addressing.

Our legal system is always playing catch up, when it comes to ways in which people are crapsacks to each other.

Didn't really phase me, just seemed trifling. Chickens be chickens. I guess the solution is not to send nudes to whackos, or just not send nudes. I don't know that she deserves jail time for sharing what I sent her... she deserves it for other stuff, but not that.

This sh*t is wrong. It's easily preventable though, by not sending f*cking nudes/dick pics. There's a 99% chance they're going to get out.

Inb4 Plastron says I'm victim blaming.

exchanging nudes is a sign of trust, and it's pretty ****** to break that trust, even after a break-up or what have you.

It's as simple as that.

Reading is fundamental.

It's only a matter of time before some psycho highschool kid gets the book thrown at them for sharing pics of their underage partner...and has to register as a sex offender for disseminating child porn.

Both parties are at fault IMO. The sender for not thinking before doing, and the receiver for being a dickwad.

I can see that playing out well in a court.
"It's not my fault! They're the one who sent it to me! I'm just the one who accepted the illegal thing, and then shared it with my friends!"

Actually, depending who the defendant is, it probably would play out that way.

I'm with plastron on this one.

That being said, I'm glad I don't have nudes.

I guess he doesn't qualify as African American to cubed because he doesn't say things like "yessa massa", "sup dawg", "yo", "kill whitey" and "shee-it negro!"

I feel like being a man this makes no difference. Who wants to look at naked pictures of a man?

Oh totally. I don't think the sender should receive any repercussions.

It's..just..such an easy problem to prevent if you think before you act.
