GOOD NEWS! Some justice is achieved, with this first revenge porn conviction in California under their new law! 🙂

    [LA TIMES] — Three years ago, Noe Iniguez and his girlfriend broke up. That’s when he decided to get even, prosecutors said.

    He posted a topless photograph of his ex-girlfriend on her employer’s Facebook page along with messages calling her a “drunk” and a “slut” and encouraging her firing, they said.

    Until recently, his actions would have been outside the reach of the law, because victims were not offered protection from people who intentionally posted their nude photographs without their consent.

    That changed when a new law took effect in October 2013, making Iniguez’s actions a misdemeanor crime.

    This week, he became the first person in California to be convicted for “revenge porn” and was sentenced to a year in jail.

~~ Yay! We hope this will deter other offenders from thinking they can get away with posting their own revenge porn.

Here’s a powerful article that addresses the connections between pornography and celebrity photo leaks. ~~

WARNING! Graphic and disturbing content ahead!

    [Mashable] — “…Gail Dines, chair and professor of American Studies at Wheelock College in Boston, told Mashable the hack represents something more insidious than just standard economics.

    “To be unclothed in the face of people who are clothed is to be rendered powerless,” she said. “This is really about humiliating women, degrading them and reducing them to…f*ck objects.”

    Dines, author of the book PORNLAND: How Porn has Hijacked our Sexuality, said the release of the private images is behavior typical of a “porn culture” in which women are disposable objects used temporarily, and often brutally, for physical pleasure. In this worldview, women’s bodies are cheap and undeserving of privacy or integrity.

    This sounds like sick hyperbole until Dines starts to list the trends she observes as a pornography researcher. In certain threads, male users ask for suggestions on how to find particularly demeaning scenes, like a woman registering physical pain performing certain sexual acts, such as anal sex. Numerous commenters will direct him to a specific film and recommend a scene — down to the second.

    In a kind of porn known as “facial abuse,” women are often brought to the brink of asphyxiation. In one recent example, Dines recalled, she watched as a famous porn actress was choked and strangled to the point where her eyes began to roll back into her head. The scene ended with the star in tears, her running mascara mixed with the semen that had been ejaculated into her eyes.”

———-

~~ Thank you, Gail, for having the courage to share the UGLY TRUTH. As horrific as the reality of porn is, it will never get better unless we inform people about it, so that something can be done to stop this devastatingly cruel nightmare that harms so many people, especially women and girls.

Here’s some good info on revenge porn, which is something that can severely harm someone’s reputation, career and life in many ways!

    “No matter if you’re a celebrity or a regular person, these pictures and videos go viral,” Jacobs told Fox411. “These cyber postings can lead to real life physical attacks, your professional status being compromised as well as your relationship with friends and family suffering. It essentially ruined my life.”

    Carrie Goldberg, a New York attorney who litigates online sexual privacy invasions, explained the motivation for those who spread revenge porn.

    “Sociopathy is the motive for those who are straight up porn offenders. They cannot deal with rejection,” Goldberg said. “For hackers, it’s a different motivation. It’s not about harming the individual – the hackers are in competition with each other. They’re online hooligans.”

VIDEO interview from the article, with revenge porn expert Dr. Charlotte Laws:

VIDEO: Revenge porn expert Dr. Charlotte Laws shares how her daughter was a victim of revenge porn.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ImO_2alKko

NOTE: She shares a lot of useful info, but we strongly disagree with her when she says that revenge porn has nothing to do with “regular porn” made by the porn industry. The misogynist culture that she describes that fuels revenge porn is in large part CREATED and PERPETUATED by the porn industry. See our previous post on this issue:

http://mashable.com/2014/09/03/celebrity-nude-photo-leak-women/

Here’s the info on the NBC producer mentioned in the above article, who posted a nonconsensual sex tape online at a porn site.

http://nypost.com/2014/09/09/nbc-producer-busted-for-making-sex-tape-with-unknowing-girlfriend/

~ NOTE: We strongly believe that people should have the right to take nude photos of themselves if they want, and to keep them private, or share them selectively with whomever they wish. But we disagree with the article just above and DO think it’s best to discourage people from sexting — if they don’t want those images to end up online and be seen by millions of strangers and everyone they know. There’s just too high a risk of that happening and destroying their life, and of the perpetrator not being adequately punished, as tragic and totally wrong as that is.

So what do YOU think is best? Discourage sexting, or not?

Some porn-obsessed Internet hackers decided to steal and expose over 100 female celebrities’ private naked photos.

    [The Daily Mail] — “… The hacked nude photographs leaked online of actresses including Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton have been traded on the Internet for at least a week and could be just the tip of the iceberg of stolen celebrity pictures.

    Exchanged on the deep web black market and deviant message boards specializing in stolen ‘revenge porn’ photography, the compromising pictures have been used as a currency of sorts among perverted members of these forums.

    Indeed, in the aftermath of Sunday’s mass dumping of naked pictures, these boards have descended into anarchy and infighting, with a civil war erupting between those who leaked the pictures and those furious their sordid, secret game has been thrown into the public eye.”

———-

These hackers are CRIMINALS engaged in theft, invasion of privacy, and harassment. Their twisted “revenge porn” game may involve famous women instead of former girlfriends, perhaps because they have never had a girlfriend, so instead they resort to this cruel type of “fantasy revenge.” Very disturbing and very wrong!! 😦

———–

We hope all involved in stealing and distributing these photos are caught very soon. We think they deserve VERY severe punishments for their cruel abuse and sick games that they play — which are sometimes for fun and prestige amongst other porn fans, and other times for PROFIT.

WOW. A woman is suing Facebook for 123 MILLION dollars because they were VERY slow to remove some revenge porn images posted by a former “friend.”

The legal document states that Ali is seeking “full justice for the significant trauma, extreme humiliation, extreme embarrassment, severe emotional disturbances, and severe mental and physical suffering … due to the unconscionable activities and gross failures of Defendant Adeel and Defendant Facebook.”

Additionally, Ali’s lawsuit claims “seeks to expose the frailties and failures of the falsely advertised, and false promoted privacy mechanisms” of Facebook, and the significant damages that can result from those failings, that she further alleges “Facebook’s upper management, officers, directors and key employees have long known about and essentially concealed.”

Check out the full story below for more details. It’s very interesting. And very relevant to anyone who uses Facebook!

http://www.thewrap.com/facebook-slapped-with-123-million-lawsuit-over-revenge-porn-page/

So what does everyone think? Do you think the woman suing should be awarded the full amount? If not, how much should she get? And if Facebook loses this lawsuit, do you think they will change their ways and take quicker action in revenge porn cases in the future?? Please share your thoughts. Thanks! 🙂

Here is an Interesting article about one good man named Adam Steinbaugh (@AdamSteinbaugh) who’s doing everything he can to hold revenge porn profiteers accountable. Hopefully he will inspire others to step up and just SAY NO to ALL types of porn!

“I was really pissed off at what was being done to these men and women and wanted to do something about it,” says Steinbaugh, 31. Once exposed, the men are subject to public shaming. Sometimes people will take sites down when they get wind Steinbaugh is going to expose them. Others lash out at him. “I get death threats and threatened with lawsuits,” he says. He hasn’t been sued yet but those he has exposed have.”

Good news! Another revenge porn site operator and extortionist has been arrested for his crimes! Yay! 🙂

http://www.newson6.com/story/24743878/sand-springs-man-jailed-for-running-revenge-porn-website

[News On 6] — A Green Country man is behind bars after prosecutors say he was running a, revenge porn website. Casey Meyering is being held at the jail waiting to answer to extortion charges in California.

Meyering reportedly posted more than 400 sexually explicit photos and extorted $250 from victims to remove the photos from his website.

Legal Blogger Adam Steinbaugh said, “If they’re going out to Oklahoma to pick them up and drag them back to Northern California they’re serious.”

Agents from California paid a visit to Green Country; a special cybercrimes task force was looking for Meyering in Tulsa. After kicking in the door, agents found Meyering in a midtown hotel room.

California Attorney General Kamala D. Harris said Meyering, 28, owned a website called “WinByState.com,” that asked the public to post nude and explicit photos of people without their permission.

Meyering reportedly encouraged people to post the photos and identify their “win” according to city and state, sometimes using the victim’s name. The site is described as a “user supported website where you can trade your ex-girlfriend, your current girlfriend, or any other girl that you might know,” according to a news release from the California Department of Justice.
