Don't you worry your pretty little mind, people throw rocks at things that shine
I’m going to go ahead and assume this is in regards to my feelings about the Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton nude picture issue.
If it’s YOUR CHOICE to be seen nude, then yes, it is empowering. And if you want to pose nude, post pictures publicly, be a nude model, be an exotic dancer, hold an art exhibit of nude pictures of yourself, etc., that’s awesome, and go for it!
If someone invades your privacy, and AGAINST YOUR WILL exploits photographs you (or even someone else) took for YOUR PERSONAL AND PRIVATE USE, that is never ok. Their privacy was violated so some people could get their kicks from these women. It was NOT their choice. They were degraded publicly for the amusement and sexual satisfaction of- yes I’m going there- chauvinistic and misogynistic men (and probably some women as well).
This situation has nothing, I repeat, NOTHING TO DO WITH EMPOWERMENT. If Jennifer Lawrence does a movie with full nudity, that’s her prerogative and her art. And because that would be her choice, it would indeed be something she did- for herself- that gave her feelings of self-empowerment and pride. Which is great.
But when someone hacks a woman’s account, regardless of if they’re in the public eye or not, and steals and passes around their private pictures, that, my friend, is disgusting and degrading.
DAMN IT, VOLDY
