I'm just gonna put this out there

I keep hearing people slut shame Lea Michele and Jennifer Lawrence and Becca Tobin and basically everyone’s nudes who’ve been leaked, and I keep seeing people say, “Well if you don’t take nudes, you don’t have to worry about it!”

Let me make this extremely clear:  PEOPLE SHOULD NOT HAVE TO WORRY THAT THEIR PERSONAL, PRIVATE PROPERTY IS GOING TO BE LEAKED TO THE PUBLIC.  PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE AFRAID TO TAKE PICTURES OF THEMSELVES BECAUSE THEY WON’T BE SAFE.  AND MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE, THEY SHOULD NOT BE THE ONES SHAMED FOR THIS, THE ASSHOLE WHO LEAKED THE PHOTOS SHOULD BE SHAMED UP AND DOWN FOREVER.

Women’s bodies are not commodities for us to consume, and the fact that these women have had their privacy invaded and exploited and THEY’RE being blamed for it is just another item on the LONG list of reasons feminism is important.

So incredibly angry about the leaked nudes, but just as angry about the lack of empathy from people. Sadly, I'm not shocked at the fact that 99% of the comments were men blaming the women, calling them whores and sluts, then asking for and giving the links to the pictures. This was literally my comment about it. "Yes, the rapist probably shouldn't have raped her, but she shouldn't have worn those clothes/she shouldn't have drank that much/she shouldn't have been out at night in the first place/

Exactly! There are SO many problems here, one of which is the shaming of these women for expressing their sexuality in this way. They did nothing wrong. It’s victim blaming, 100%

And not only are they being unfairly shamed for their actions, they are being shamed for the fact that someone else broke the law and stole from them! 

It’s disgusting. You can’t tell me at a time like this that society doesn’t hate women. Contempt for women and their ownership of their own sexuality is everywhere. It’s always just below the surface, waiting for moments like this.
