Go ahead. Wag your finger at me and tell me I should know better. Just know that I am not going to apologize and I do not feel ashamed. And if I do say so myself, I looked pretty damn good. Excuse my French, but WTF? What upset me most was that he specifically threatened to post these pictures from our past relationship to my business on Facebook. He intended to annihilate me. A good friend happened to send me a message on Facebook chat while I sat frozen with panic, and I wrote back about what was going on.
Within moments my friend had sent me several links to websites developed to protect women from revenge porn. There is something being done and steps I can take to protect myself! The next site I visited, run by Women Against Revenge Pornoffered the relief of coming to understand that even though I willingly sent these pictures, I still own them. It is a right. If you take a photo of yourself selfieyou own the copyright to the photo. Even if you post your ex nudes hand over, text, or your picture to another person, you still own the copyright.
The recipient does not own it. Even with all of this information there will be people who stand by the opinion that anyone who sends out an explicit photo of themselves is implicitly allowing for these photos to eventually become public. Aware of the possibility? Allowing for it?
The unfortunate truth is that any time a woman is alone with a man she is aware that rape is a possibility. Is she allowing for it? Couples share intimate photos, letters and experiences from a deeply personal bond. I still believe exchanging intimate pictures can be great under the right circumstances. In long-term marriages, they can reignite imagination and passion. In long-distance relationships, they can keep you connected and playful. In your relationship with yourself, they can be an empowering record of the beauty of your own body that you can look back to when you are feeling bad about yourself, or even in the future after gravity has taken further effect and you want to smile at what a hot you were.
So now that you and I both know that revenge porn is a real thing, here are 7 steps you can take to protect yourself from becoming a victim:. Consider your own line of work, stage of life and other personal considerations before ever sending anyone, no matter how close you are or how much you trust them, photos of yourself that you would be afraid for anyone else to find.
If you do choose to share intimate photos of yourself, have a conversation beforehand with your partner about what you expect him or her to do with them. Take some time to familiarize yourself with information available on the Internet regarding revenge porn.
In particular, check out to see whether or not there is currently a law in your state, and find out detailed information on filing a report with law enforcement, hiring an attorney, and submitting a DCMA notice. Occasionally do Google Web and image searches for your name and photos to make sure nothing has already been posted without your knowledge or consent. If you receive a threat bytext or voice mail, document and save it. I personally give constant thanks to the gods of screenshots.
Share links to the helpful information you find openly on social media. The more awareness there is that there are criminal consequences for these actions, the less likely abusers will be to make threats, which themselves are terribly depleting. For myself, just knowing that advocates and lawmakers are taking this issue seriously provided me great comfort. I was able to start breathing again, knowing that if he continues to harass me or eventually does post a picture anywhere online, I know the to call!
