A woman talks to Salon about the painful reality of being targeted online by men who get off on demeaning women.

How did you discover your images?

A lot of the emails I received had links in them. I guess I’m fairly attractive — like, I’m skinny and have long blond hair, so the first thing that happened was if someone takes a liking to a photo on the Internet they repost it somewhere else. As far as I know I’m posted on about 500 sites, including Tumblr and Reddit. I don’t really bother to try to take the photos down anymore because it would be a full-time job. It’s uncontrollable.

To me, it hasn’t mattered that much that I didn’t know who did it in the first place, what has really taken over for me was I was very surprised by the reactions I got from other people, especially from guys on the Internet. I thought that, OK, this will be humiliating and extremely uncomfortable, but for the most part it will just be a guy being like, “OK, tits, awesome” and then moving on with their life. But that’s just not what happened.

Then what did happen?

They hate you. They detest you. I’ve had these pictures sent to my boss. I’ve had them sent to my cousin, to my sister, to my mother and father, to my colleagues, to my friends, to guys on my Facebook friend list just for the sake of messing with my life. This isn’t about porn, this is about humiliation. There’s plenty naked women on the Internet who are there by their free will and would love to be looked at. I’m not one of them. That’s the appeal of this. It’s humiliation. It’s about creating a narrative about me being a normal person who is also a slut.

And they’re trying to reveal you as such to people in your life.

I think so, yeah. They think they know something about me that can potentially have ruining effects for me, and they want to utilize that power over me, actively, as a weapon. I thought it was very odd that my own body could be used as a weapon against me, that something I had done that was completely harmless, that really had no impact on the outside world — I wilfully contributed in a private sexual act — that that can be used against me. I didn’t expect that at all when it first happened, that it would seed so much hatred, especially in American men. American guys, they’re always [sending me emails] asking questions like, “Do your parents know?” “Have you been fired for this?” “What’s it like knowing you’re a slut?” They want to get in your head and understand the amount of humiliation you’ve suffered.

you people have absolutely no critical thinking skills
one is a disrespectful, extremely inaccurate and highly romanticized and steteotyped ‘interpretation’ of native american imagery, appropriated to serve as a novel, kitschy piece of native culture that for white people to consume and use as they please, while actual native americans are having their culture, languages and land stolen from them.
the other is a fictional comic book character, playing a fictional race of peoples, that is loosely based on norse myth. without Idris playing that role, the entire population of asgard would have been as pale as the driven snow. this is a film meant for a modern, global audience but you want less PoC in it? and if you’re going to argue that it would have been ‘historically accurate’ for all norse gods to be white then you can go throw yourself into a pile of horse shit because the idea that anything in the Thor movies or comics is ‘historically accurate’ is extremely ludicrous.
so you can all stop with the inane comparisons now and go back to eating your mayo and crackers or whatever it is white people do when they’re not screwing over other races.

You people have absolutely no critical thinking critical thinking skills.
One is a disrespectful, extremely inaccurate and highly romanticized ‘interpretation’ of a norse god, appropriated to serve as a novel, kitschy piece of norse culture for Pickers of Cotton to use as entertainment as they please while northern europeans are having their culture, nations and women raped by immigrants. 
The other is a costume made for children to wear on halloween that is loosely based on old American Indian clothing. 
So you can stop with the inane complaining now and go back to eating fried chicken and watermelon or whatever it is black people do when they’re not sponging off of the achievements of other races.  

Don’t you love it when racists prove your point for you and look like absolutely the most deplorable kind of human trash while doing so?

The image on the left is one that was widely circulated in the Fitblr community with such mottos as ‘there are no excuses’, ‘push through the pain’, etc. Eventually it was revealed that the image had been highly manipulated and once people realized what the athlete actually looked like, they were disgusted (which really signifies the corruption in a so called ‘health’ movement) [x]
