Chuck Wendig has the first PSA. Note: much swearing.
What I think annoys me most of all about this whole debacle is the implication that nude photos are okay to steal.
Dude. There are plenty of them that are consensually shared. Letmedothis.com is one of the better tumblrs full. (Since every site has a theme, this site’s is: at least two people, at least one of whom is female, involved in some sexual/sensual act with explicit nudity.)
But if you’re not going to act honorably and lawfully about nude photos, then it’s no fucking wonder why no one will take any with you. No one with self-respect, anyway.
If, instead, you happen to like nude photos, treat it as a gift when people consensually share that with you and trust you. Because it is.
And maybe, you know, you’ll actually get to see more of the good stuff.
Also: this interesting post from Nik Cubrilovic covers some bigger security implications.
