Look, I'm sorry this will offend those that have been hurt, but if you let someone take a naked picture of you: You're an idiot. "I was in a long-time committed relationship" is what most of the victims are saying. "I trusted them."
You weren't married and even if you were, you'd better make DARN sure they have no access to any of it in case you get divorced. No files, no negatives, not the camera, don't text it, email, or anything else.
I've been married 17 years. SEVENTEEN YEARS. I'm pretty sure it's "'til death do us part" (one way or the other), but there is no way he will get a naked picture of me. He has ME to look at, he doesn't need "proof". Traveling? Phone call. Use your imagination if you need an image.
Naked Skype? Not a chance! I know you can capture an image...
How immature and petty does a man have to be that he has to post naked pictures to get revenge? The worst part is they do it anonymously. You really want to ruin someone's life? You should give them the chance to somehow get even, attach your name and mugshot to your idiotic actions! Because women travel in packs.
I find it truly sad and pathetic.
When did we stop meeting people that looked better than your ex and flaunting that? Dating someone more successful? Moving on and moving up?
These women are being wrongly judged and it's affecting not only their self-esteem, but when your boss, co-workers, or friends Google you, this is what will come up. This isn't a short-term revenge out of temporary anger, it's a total life ruination.
The guy that runs the original website stands behind his idea with freedom of speech, freedom of the internet. Probably because he is profiting from it and that is just cowardly and greedy. He is hurting people in ways that he can't fathom (or doesn't care because it's not him) and until women get so distraught they start committing suicide over their distress, it will continue.
I hope the women suing get the websites taken down. If they can regulate internet gambling in this country, child pornography illegal sales, then why can't they regulate porn-against-a-woman's-will? That can't be legal. Exploitation charges?
In the meantime, stop letting your men take naked photos of you, it's a stupid choice that should red-flag your brain immediately!! Stop drinking so much you'll agree to anything. I don't think a petition (currently circulating) will end this.
NOT letting them taking pictures is your only safeguard to protect yourself and your future.
