Some Thoughtful Reactions To The Leaked Celebrity Nudes

Because not everyone on the internet is there just to get off. Really.

1. Leaked nude pictures of celebrities ranging from Jennifer Lawrence to Kirsten Dunst surfaced over the weekend, and much of the internet, predictably, turned into a pack of drooling teenage boys.

2. Yet some people took a more thoughtful approach about what the photos meant for celebrities, women, and anyone who’s ever taken a sexy snap with their phone.

3. Even some corners of the internet with a reputation for being a bit, er, perverse, came out to defend the celebrities from the invasive hack.

5. The rapid spread of the images seemed to be a clear violation of Twitter’s terms of service.

Apparently "Report anyone who shares nudes without consent" is twitter code for "fill my mentions with people's private pictures". Right.

7. And a dialogue about consent began to emerge.

Nudity isn't the issue; it's consent. Jennifer Lawrence did not consent to this. Like many other women, that choice has been taken from her.

Gotta love all the dudes ranting about invasion of privacy by the NSA while sharing nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence without her consent.

10. Bad Feminist writer Roxane Gay brought up the connection between the leaks and misogyny.

Like, OMG, beneath their clothes, did you know women are naked?

— Roxane Bey (@rgay)

Correct. Privacy is a privilege primarily afforded to men of a certain race and class. @gatsdee

12. And some people just put it all into perspective with a little humor.

Reasons cats are better than people No. 871: Cats don't put stolen pictures of naked people on the internet.
