I am very surprised at the conservative prudishness on DU these days.

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by aikoaiko (a host of the General Discussion forum).

People are flipping out about NUDE PICS ON THE INTERNETS!

Just grow up, please.

5. you would need to be a regular in the meta forum

 

To understand why he is posting this, I think. There is a backstory here that prompted this.

37. Begging the question

why would this be an OP to GD, if it is based upon a Meta Forum Discussion, would it not be more appropriate there as opposed to this forum, where it raises the obvious "Huh", factor?

39. yes. that is what makes this poster so offensive. they only thing he will say is people offended

by naked women.

that is not the issue. and he keeps pushing the prudish. he ignores against will. he ignore revenge site is to ridicule and humiliate the women. he ignores it allows stalkers to know where they live.

People are flipping out over nude pics posted by revenge seeking ex-boyfriends and without the consent of the subjects.

4. I'm shocked that men still don't realize there's

a slut-shaming double standard that's alive and well in this country that has cost women their careers over nude shots on the internet.

Develop as much intolerance for slut shaming as people did for the n-word and nude photos posted of unconsenting women will be far less of a problem.

Revenge porn sites can still expect to be sued over that 'consent' thing.

30. they use the picture to ridicule and tear the women apart. to harass. so it is beyond just nude.

it is a perverse sexual harassment. and none of us should have to "just get used to it" and normalize that behavior.

but posting pics without consent on the net, where someone's parents or kids could find them, is bullshit. Even you are bright enough to know this.

28. There may be no shame in nudity,

but ask any woman who has been fired over something like this, or has been labeled a whore because this happened, if there are not people out there who DO see shame in it. Until the day comes that we can all walk the streets naked, you know that there is an issue with this in society at large.

Get some sensitivity.

it's NOT conservative prudishness. It's fucking wrong. No growing up involved. It's fucking wrong.

9. OFFS. I didn't realize I was responding to you

Thats what I get for clicking and not looking.

I'm not buying what you are selling. If the ex boyfriend or husbands are publishing those pics on that site, without the consent of the women the only ones who should be shamed are the so called men doing it. It's a matter of the lack of CONSENT by the women..


Edited to add. what the hell does being gay have to do with it?????????

It's sexual harassment, it's a vile breach of trust and it's wrong.

Women do not have to sit down and shut up and take it, and we won't.

after how many posts of yours dismissing how a woman may feel, i gotta figure you are one ot exploit women and need to validate and justify your own behavior.

I do hope you take the chance to start an OP with a picture of you in the altogether. It's time we all get shocked out of our humdrum complacency and see the TRUE meaning of liberalism, as illustrated by banned from Kos' NAKED ASS!

26. The reason you said it was OK was because many "of our best actresses" who appear nude

win Academy Awards.

It is also true that many of our best athletes voluntarily get the crap beaten out of themselves for money. So I guess, by your logic, it would be OK with you if someone beat the crap out of you?

(By the way, you were saying it was OK for a man to post a naked photo of his ex-girlfriend online against her will. People are not flipping out about NUDE PICS, they are flipping out about nude photos being used against the will of the subject of the photos. If you don't understand the difference, you really need to ask your mom to have the talk with you about respecting others.)

This OP meets the definition of "whining about DU" which is explicitly prohibited in the GD SOP.

It would do fine in meta, however.
