Indeed, and giving a load of shit to a few female celebs who's pics ended up online, and not giving a damn they're male is not being on a level playing field.

I think that's about the height of the argument, really.

This is basically the reason.

And so were a lot of the women in these photos.

I wasn't stating that it was sexist. My point was that neither are sexist (I didn't know that he was sending it to unwilling recipients though, I forgot that part :blond: ). If it's sexist to look at naked pictures of these women, why did noone cry sexism about Verne Troyer's sex tape? or Hulk Hogan's, or Colin Farrel's.


Colin Farrel has a sex tape? Where pls.

I'm glad we have Ryan to voice what women enjoy for us.

Go to a porn site which begin with X and ends with videos, and type in Colin Farrell Sex Tape. I'm not responsible for lack of quality. :P

Pretty sure that's not how gender equality works. It sucks that that was the situation for so long, but I don't think an eye for an eye is the way to go about correcting the problem. We surely deserve to be on a level playing field.

I'm not saying inverse-sexism is the right thing to do by any stretch. I am saying that it is not a level playing field though - there is much more of a precedent and attitude set for anti-female sexism than there is for anti-male, which this entire event feeds in to rather horrifically as displayed by the responses surrounding it (primarily the overly potent tone of victim blaming that immediately came out of it).

You're right, of course, in that egalitarianism is the way forward. I would never advocate eye for an eye. But to readdress the gender balance obviously requires far more effort in identifying anti-female sexism than it does in identifying anti-male.

i think if anything good comes of this, it will be that people will hopefully realise that taking naked pictures of yourself is stupid, they are not safe on digital media platforms. sucks for the people that it happened to, and its not ok that it happened but my sympathy is limited.

as for it being sexist... its a hacker or group of hackers, who more than likely live in either their parents house or a shitty little one bedroom flat somewhere, who has never touched a woman. i really dont think we need to look into it further than the invasion of privacy, leave the sexism debate out of it. there will always be sexist people out there. 1 sexist guy with a computer is no problem, 1 hacker with a computer is a serious problem.

It wasn't just one guy, it was a group, the ones who leaked bought into the group and gathered a small amount of pictures before leaking them for Bitcoin.

the point still stands that the hacking is the far more serious issue than the perceived sexism

True, but hacking happens all the time, hopefully people will realize this and try and put a stop to this. But no, the FBI's best efforts are being used to try and hide all the images. :rolleyes:
