Victim Blaming

It has recently been announced that someone hacked the iCloud and nude photos of celebrities have been stolen and released to the public.  Some people actually have the audacity to blame the celebrities.  I could go on and on about this because it frustrates me so much, but instead of writing thousands of words few will finish, I’ll sum it up quickly.

What two consenting adults do behind closed doors is their business.  If they want to send nude photos to each other that’s not anyone’s business except theirs.

I’ve been seeing screen shots of tweets posted by so many people blaming the celebrities, saying protect your computer better or you shouldn’t take them in the first place.  Well if someone breaks into your secure house and steals your diamond ring, do people come up to you and say “Well that’s your fault.  You shouldn’t have bought that ring in the first place.”  The answer is no they don’t.  Someone STOLE that ring which is YOUR personal property just as they STOLE these private images which are not theirs.  This is simply victim blaming.

In a perfect world, everyone who viewed these photos and who stole them should be charged with a crime.  This is not a joke, this is not funny.  These are very private, personal and intimate things that have been taken and distributed without permission. 

That’s all I have to say on the issue.

  1. I definitely don’t think it’s their fault. I also don’t want anyone to go through my laptop or phone – that might be embarrassing 😉 But this is one thing and what’s happening after the whole leaking drama is another thing. I posted something about it on my blog. Check it out.
