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.

as a skinny person, you are catered to and you don’t even realize it. did you ask for that? no and i understand that. but you will never cry your eyes out in a dressing room because even the largest size doesn’t fit. you will never deal with rejection from a guy solely because of your weight. you are socially accepted.

is any kind of body shaming disgusting? yes. but please don’t act like you’d rather be fat.

the funniest thing in twilight is when bella thinks that the guy she has a crush on might be a vampire so she goes home and just googles the word “vampire” it’s ridiculous but also exactly what I would do in that situation

     “I got both of them from local shelters. When I got her in 2006, the staff told me she was a shepherd husky. I go to the dog park, I’m meeting people with shepherd husky mixes, and they look nothing like her. I get in my car, I’m driving, I look in the rearview mirror, I see these eyes and I’m like, I’ve got a wolf in my car. Then, when she was 10-months old, there was a shepherd breeder and trainer in the dog park, and at the end of the lesson, the trainer came up to me and asked, ‘What kind of dog is that?’ And I’m thinking, Shepherd husky. You should know, you are a breeder. She said, ‘That’s a wolf.’”

Most humans are never fully present in the now, because unconsciously they believe that the next moment must be more important than this one. But then you miss your whole life, which is never not now. —Eckhart Tolle (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)

She’s passed this place a dozen times walking to and from her hotel to the Starbucks in the strip mall across the street, but she’s never really actually noticed it, the way she doesn’t notice most of the scenery in this town, too picturesque and charming to really grab her attention. Some days she wakes up and feels like she’s been dropped into one of the default paper photos they put inside picture frames, with a beautiful, smiling family playing with their yellow lab against the backdrop of a perfect, sunny day.

Clarke hates things that are so pretty that they don’t seem real, because it almost always means the inside is rotten. As a movie star, she is somewhat of an authority on this issue. Like, even more than most, probably.

"So, Clarke,” he said with an emphasis on her name, “You know why I’m standing here, feeling miserable. But why do you look like your world just ended. No, let me guess,” he said and pinched his lips together as he studied her. “Finn is your best friend, and he was in love with you when you were younger. You lost touch and then one day, out of the blue, he showed up at your door and told you he was getting married. That’s when you realised that you’ve been in love with him all along and you came to this wedding to get him back.” He cast a sideway glance at her with a small smile on his face. “Am I close?”

Clarke gaped.

"Did you really just give me the summary of My best friend’s wedding?”
