I’m not trying to sound all new age here, but it’s just a naked woman. There’s so many of those, it’s difficult to get invested if she didn’t send those images to you directly.
Like, what are you supposed to do with still images of someone? Masturbate? No one has masturbated to still images for at least 15 years.

However, in the reality we live in we all know that there is little to no privacy online. So I don't think these women should be shamed for taking the pics, and if we lived in a fair world they should not be criticized for not being careful enough. The person we should shame, is the dickwad who actually leaked them in the first place.
Look, the weirdos who attack people who have had their nudes leaked are clearly dickheads. I tend to think those people are the extremes that shouldn’t be validated with attention. But, it’s possible I’m wrapped safely in my bed of educated northeast/west coast people with good mental health. Maybe the dickhead is the majority, and I just don’t know it.
Either way, I don’t think there’s much need to agonize over a dickhead’s opinion.

"One of the reasons I’m always concerned about art being taken out of schools is because it doesn’t mean that if you study art you’re going to become a pianist or an actor or a painter, but it does mean you’ll learn to think beyond true and false answers. You’ll learn to think for yourself in a totally new way, and that’s what creative arts education does."
