Which is more than likely as close to a rape joke as I will ever come.
While I am not sure if I have discussed it here before, I am pro-porn feminist. I am not going to get involved in the discussion right now, I just wanted to point that out since I am about to do a little dance over the misfortune of a “pornographer.” If you are interested in feminist porn, or wonder what it even is, may I suggest you look into Tristan Taormino. (Here is her wiki page, and here is her website Pucker Up, which is I believe is NSFW but the link is to a SFW cover page that is a decent overview of who she is.) Of course, this is all consensual, non-exploitative stuff. Educate yourself. Support the good stuff. Put the bad stuff out of business. With that out of the way…..
The likely majority of teens and young adults, now that teens, in the words of Dan Savage, carry around mobile porn production studios wherever they go, who have given their significant other naked pictures only to see the relationship run its course and come to an end can sleep at least a little bit better tonight. One of the biggest names in “revenge porn,” that non-consensual misogynistic genre made up largely of pictures sent in by jilted lovers of their exes, pictures that were never intended for public consumption, has been indicted on federal charges. *dance*
From the Salon:
The proprietor of the “revenge porn” website Is Anyone Up has been indicted on federal charges of “conspiracy, seven counts of unauthorized access to a protected computer to obtain information and seven counts of aggravated identity theft,” according to an indictment announced Thursday by an official at the United States Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles.
As Time reports, Hunter Moore was indicted in addition to a man named Charles “Gary” Evens, who Moore paid to break into the email accounts of victims and steal nude photos to post to his website against his victims’ will.
“We’re ecstatic,” said anti-revenge porn activist Charlotte Laws, whose daughter is one of the victims listed in the indictment. “We’re super pleased that the FBI have brought this to fruition. I’ve talked to several of the victims and they are extremely pleased and I know all the victims are going to feel happy and they are going to feel that finally justice is being served.”
More on the case here.
That article is by Katie McDonough, and since I just realized I quoted the whole piece, go give the Salon a click of traffic in celebration.
This of course only leaves one question: Once he is inside, how long til someone tells him he has a “pretty mouth?”
Funny. For some reason I don’t feel bad making prison rape jokes about this scum. Oh, well.
