How not to be violated like Jennifer Lawrence by Fleet Street Fox

sunfishdunes:

Do not let your daughters grow up to be like Jennifer Lawrence.

Yes, she’s a beautiful, intelligent, sensible, wealthy and successful individual who can do whatever she wants with her life.

But she’s also female, which is bad for your mental health.

Today she’s having to come to terms with the fact that a bunch of nude and semi-nude photos of her have been leaked online.

A total of 101 female celebrities are thought to have been targeted by someone who hacked the Apple photo storage service iCloud and published them in return for money.

In an extra layer of creepy weirdness, actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead said the photos taken with her husband years earlier had been deleted – so iCloud had kept a copy, and the hacker had to hunt for it.

There are no leaked photos of naked male celebrities.

Despite the fact men quite like waving their wangers around in public and sending pictures of them to people, the hacker felt it was more fun to do this with women who wouldn’t enjoy it.

It would be normal for Jennifer Lawrence to spend today sobbing under the duvet and asking herself what she could have done differently. It’s something we should all ask ourselves, as nudey photos are fairly common these days.

So how do we avoid being similarly violated?           

First, ensure that your sexy shots do not include your face. The recipient isn’t interested in it anyway and when some ratbag puts the shots online it gives you a level of plausible deniability.

Secondly, do not use someone else’s server to store your naughty photos. When you buy an Apple product it almost forces you to sign up for iCloud, and it takes a level of ingenuity and pig-headed determination to avoid it. But it can be done.

After that, you simply need to tell your daughters not to be like Jennifer Lawrence.

Tell them not to be beautiful, because then it’s inevitable that strangers will think of you as nothing but a meatsack.      

Tell them not to be intelligent. Maths, sciences, arts, humanities – being clever is useless if you’re still female underneath.

Tell your daughters there is no point in being an Oscar winner. To achieve success in your chosen trade or profession, and to be recognised for it, cannot cure the disability of your sex.

Just ask Rona Fairhead, the new chairman of the BBC Trust. A man nominated for the job would have his qualifications discussed; but the headlines about Rona have concentrated on her gender, because a womb cancels out achievement.

(A woman at the BBC! Imagine!)

Teach your daughters not to bother with wealth. If they earned it themselves they’ll be loathed by those who haven’t, and if they hook up with a man who’s wealthy they’ll be accused of gold-digging.

Tell your daughters to never, ever, bother with sex. If they don’t do it enough they’ll be called frigid, if they do it too much they’ll be called whores, and either way someone somewhere will tell them they’re wrong.

Remember to impress upon your daughters that a tendency to be upset at something bad means people will want to do that bad thing to you.

Hair-pulling, name-calling, stolen photos, rape, it’s all so much more fun if she squeals.

Make sure your daughters never decide to do something someone else might not like.

This weekend it was reported that Hana Karim, a veterinary student, was among 28 women shot in the head by Shi’ite militia in a Baghdad brothel.

A dozen women were killed cowering in the bathroom, some were killed in bed with clients, and one was dragged from the cupboard she was hiding in. All were shot in the head, because the killers didn’t have time to stone them to death.

Perhaps Hana was visiting a friend; perhaps she had money worries; perhaps she just liked having sex. Who cares? Someone didn’t like her decision, so of course she should die.

Tell your daughters not to go online, where they’ll only be groomed or trolled. Tell them not to get old because they’ll be past it, tell them not to get drunk because they’ll be asking for it, and tell them not to stay sober because then they’ll be no fun.           

Tell them not to be athletes, or their bodies will be derided by men. Tell them not to be actresses, ballet dancers or models, or their bodies will be derided by men. Tell them not to walk down the street, or their bodies will be derided by men.

Tell them not to work, not to try, and not to hope that they will only ever meet those men who treat them better than that.
It doesn’t matter how beautiful, moral, bright, pleasant or useful you are. If you are female, you will have trouble every day of your life.

Tell your daughters that if they really want to be happy, if they don’t want to be victims, to forget about their bodies.

Instead cut out your daughters’ brains, stick them in a jar, and cover the whole thing with a black cloth bag in a darkened room where they will be safe from rapists, hackers, misogynists, trolls, public transport gropers and the hatefulness of strangers.

That way they could avoid all this crap that Jennifer Lawrence and every other woman on Earth has to deal with.

After all, it would be too much to expect the handful of men responsible for it to behave better, be arrested, or be the least bit sorry.

Rape culture makes men think that they are entitled to see any and every woman they want naked, regardless of that woman’s consent.

Lauren Ingram. (via mysharona1987)

But women can never be careful enough, can we? If we take naked pictures of ourselves, we’re asking for it. If someone can manage to hack into our accounts, we’re asking for it. If we’re not wearing anti-rape nail polish, we’re asking for it. If we don’t take self-defence classes, we’re asking for it. If we get drunk, we’re asking for it. If our skirts are too short, we’re asking for it. If we pass out at a party, we’re asking for it. If we are not hyper-vigilant every single fucking second of every single fucking day, we are asking for it. Even when we are hyper-vigilant, we’re still asking for it. The fact that we exist is asking for it.

This is what rape culture looks like.

This is what misogyny looks like.

Does anyone else feel really guilty when they start talking about their own feelings and then immediately regret saying anything because you just feel so annoying and pathetic and ugh

One bright spark: Hypnotic photographs capture Pablo Picasso

'painting' with light

He was known for pushing the boundaries of his craft, so when Pablo Picasso was offered to paint with light, he leaped at the chance.

These stunning photographs, which show a dimly-lit Picasso swathed in neon squiggles, are the results of five sessions he held with lighting innovator Gjon Mili in 1949.

In a series known as his ‘light drawings’, the images show the artist waving a strobe light to create figures reminiscent of the screaming cattle in Guernica or the curvaceous woman in The Dreamer.
