News broke yesterday that nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence had been “leaked” online. The truth is they were stolen. They were hacked from her personal technology. They were posted online without her consent. This is a crime. And possibly worst of all, this is something women are supposed to expect… We live in a society where women’s bodies are a commodity to be sold, whether they agree to it or not. And some of the same people who complain about the NSA or Facebook invading their personal privacy will be the same people searching and spreading around these photos.

Large-Scale Hack Lands Stolen Nude Photos Of Jennifer Lawrence & Other Celebrities Online | The Mary Sue (via themarysue)

The most idiotic thing I’ve seen today is the hackers who stole the pics being compared to the likes of Edward Snowden. Because the mere fact that law enforcement is involved and they could be prosecuted somehow makes them heroes fighting against the establishment?

If Makoto and Haru had an instagram  → Makoto would upload a lot of kitten pictures, and not a lot of pictures of himself swimming feeling a little bashful of being in nothing but his swimming suit. Despite that, he’d gain a large number of followers because people recognized hotties when they see’em, besides who doesn’t love cats? He’d like everyone’s pictures, and virtually every single one of haru’s since there’s barely any. Nagisa made his account.   Haru  → No proper pictures of himself, and barely uses it, he forgets he even has one! A lot of pictures of the food he makes, and things he likes, and the occasional group shot. Not much in the captions of his pictures or bio. Rin and the gang would take pictures of him and tag him and he’d like those in their instagrams. it was hard finding a non taken username.

Until the mid-60s, the Aborigines came under the Flora And Fauna Act, which classified them as animals, not human beings. This also meant that killing an Aborigine meant you weren’t killing a human being, but an animal.

I hope you guys learned and teared up from this as much as I did. 

This is Earth-shattering. I mean, wow, to understand so much about the feelings people have gone through just from photographs. Some of these just had me in… I mean, shocked.
