Here comes another rant….

So poor J-Law and other celebs have been victims of a serious violation of privacy by having their nudes hacked and leaked…

Yes, this is truly horrible. I would not wish it upon anyone. It’s a crime and she didn’t bring it on herself. 

Yet, as someone knowingly going into a profession that is tied to fame, J-Law and the other celebrities should have been well aware that fame comes with a price, and that they are going to be a target for this sort of unfortunate circumstance.

It’s a technological age, and everyone knows the capabilities of it. 

Yes, she should be allowed to send nudes without fear of getting exposed but she should be WISE and KNOW that there is a high probability that this could happen. And if someone doesn’t want it to possibly happen, then stop taking nudes…or don’t take them at all.

I know if I am to ever become famous, I am fucked. 
I have a whole blog of images of myself in my lingerie or nude. 
Some people think posting nudes is stupid, and to a point, it is.

However,  I don’t want to become famous in the slightest, and if I accidentally end up famous, I know it’s only a matter of time before I’m exposed. 

I hope J-Law and the others start to feel better soon, but I also hope they now know to be super careful.

Nah, you’re victim blaming like the teenagers on 4chan.

And this is also for the people on my dash who say “They shouldn’t have posted them on iCloud, they should have disabled the sync”.

Look I agree that sometimes people are a bit lenient about their privacy. But the vast majority of people, celebrities included, don’t know how to protect themselves. It’s a technological age yes, but most people are clueless how things work. I have been lucky to grow up with it and been surrounded by geeks and so I know how to handle my privacy. But most people do not have that privilege: they just trust softwares and companies to do their jobs, i.e. protect their personal data. They trust that Apple and iCloud are secure enough to put their photos. They don’t take special precaution because no one ever taught them how to chose a good password or not to send private data on a public Wifi for example.

We don’t even know how these pictures were obtained? Someone working for iCloud? Some cracker using a security exploit? Maybe iCloud had that SSL vulnerability from a few months ago and some celebrities passwords were not changed? We don’t know and we can’t expect celebrities to be better than your average security expert.

And no, they shouldn’t stop taking nudes because there is some risk of the nudes being leaked. They don’t have to stop to live a normal life because they are celebrities. They are no different than the rest of us, they just want send nudes to turn on their partner without being judged.

When we live in a world where you can access free content of naked consenting women in less than 5 seconds, why are people still invading the privacy of non-consenting women for nudes?

Hint: It has something to do with people feeling entitled to making any woman their personal porn, even if it violates or humiliates her in the process.

Hint: it has something to do with the fact they are celebrities, and that society thinks their lives are public property, and therefore how easy it is to make money out of it.

You know you get old when the Internet talks about celebrity nudes and you have no idea who all these people are beside JLaw.
