Minor news items that don't deserve a thread

Most of the time when stuff like this gets out it's because it's been shared on, not hacked. 

Im assuming these are the ones that Joey Axl got blackballed for sharing last year? 

That's the issue.  This year's exciting new boyfriend is next year's sleazy con-artist.  I don't think it's victim blaming to suggest to young girls that agreeing to send naked pics to guys is perhaps not a great idea.  But then there's not been a photographic or video advance in history that men haven't managed to use to exploit women.

Nobody takes nude selfies for themselves. They take them and send them to their partner. Sadly when relationships break down some people are dicks are share those photos on to friends. Not saying that's what happens in every instance but it's way more likely than 'hacking' 

Theres also intentional revenge porn, because, again, some people are horrible human beings.

Oh I see, shared on to someone, I read it as shared on...say Facebook or something. Sorry.

Regardless, whoever did it is abhorrent, and blaming Toni is preposterous, and only a hair's breadth from, "well, if she hadn't been wearing that..."

She's one of the nicest people in wrestling, and seeing so many people rally around her is the silver lining in this particular cloud.

I don't get the attraction of it.  If it's someone you're already intimate with, they see you naked anyway.  And very, very few people look better naked than they do in their underwear.

I read this in the voice of Alan Partridge.

Absolutely. All the "Well in this day and age she should know better" takes are fucking awful. Really, really bad form here guys.

Sorry? These weren’t taken from private property? Toni Storm leaked them herself?

No. More likely someone she shared the photos with. Encryption can’t do anything about photos and video in the hands of a third party.*

Tech companies did step up security after the swathe of leaks a couple of years ago by getting people to enrol in multi-factor authentication. But photos in iCloud (and I imagine Android since they go up to Google Photos) already were encrypted.

* Leaking intimate photos and video without permission now falls under ‚Äúrevenge porn‚Ä̬†laws, so I hope the perpetrators are identified and prosecuted.

Are you sure? When this happened to my friend we discovered there are huge, international websites solely dedicated to hacking accounts of either women or the partners of women that losers wish to see naked. And that was just for civillians who creeps had encountered in their lives. I suspect there's an even bigger network out there for celebrities.

Wasn't that huge leak of celebrities a few years ago also attributed to a web of hackers that had been trading stolen photographs for years, only for someone to go public?

It's grim as fuck and the last people who should be blamed are normal, innocent folk sending their partners sexy photos.

Whilst I would agree that victim blaming is entirely wrong under any such circumstances, there's good reason why most people will lock their homes and cars, and take great care of anything or worth.

Surely your own privacy/dignity is the one such thing that should be taken great care of?

People lock their phones to protect the data on it just like they lock their house. People also give copies of their house keys to people they trust.

You can’t say you don’t agree with victim blaming, and then proceed to start victim blaming.

Even if you leave all your doors and windows open and you get burgled, it is 100% the fault of the burglar. They know what they are doing is wrong and continue to do it regardless.

If you think that Toni Storm is even 1% to blame or wrong in this matter, then you are victim-blaming. She is the victim of a crime. It really doesn't get much simpler than this.

In that scenario, you are still a fucking idiot. So I don't think it's an appropriate analogy.
