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

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

You're not so bad, internet!
