Heartlander of the Week: Side with the Victim

To the various female celebrities whose privacy was compromised this week and whose private pictures will now be part of a public art exhibition in Florida.

OK, so its Florida, a bunch of octogenarians will look at some (more) cheap porn, so what’s new?

Well, I guess it is one thing for someone to share around their NSFW pics (which some people do). It’s a different thing for someone to hack into protected content, and then distribute private material wherever they feel like. I can’t explain why anyone would take nudie pictures of themselves (did they know? I haven’t looked at any of it.) Or why they would keep it if they did.

I certainly don’t see how any of this could be considered artistic expression by someone who did nothing more than download the photos.

Who knows—maybe if you are a celeb who has been in all these swimsuit and costume photo shoots you don’t care and don’t think it is a big deal or something. At the same time, people like Jennifer Lawrence built their career doing things like playing a character in a series of movies aimed at Young Adults. Plus, now these celebs have to go to meetings and make public appearances and tons of people have seen these pictures.

I don’t know if this quite rises to the level of vile that the teenage rape victim photo distribution trend of a few years ago did (at least most of these pictures weren’t child pornography although some were) and presumably these celebrities have enough access to mental health treatment so they won’t commit suicide.

Yay civilization!

Or should I say, welcome to the Dark Ages?
