So, someone hacked into the phones of a few celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence, Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens, and many others. Once in, they pulled some nude photos of the women and published them online.

Men everywhere, rejoice! Right?

Wrong.

What just happened here is the on the spectrum of most intimate in violations of human privacy. Photos taken on a personal device for personal reasons (whatever they may be), leaked to the world. Many people are giving the argument that there is no privacy when you are a celebrity or that “they shouldn’t have taken those photos anyway,” but they are missing one very important point in this whole conversation.

These people are human beings. I know, it’s a radical thought.

Jennifer Lawrence was born on August 15th, 1990. For the mathematicians out there, that makes her 24. 24 years old. She is younger than me by half a decade and likely younger than most of you who are reading this. She is a college-aged human being who is living her life in the spotlight, but that does not give anyone the right to violate her privacy.

But since they’re online anyway, you might as well look at them, right?

Wrong again.

The only reason people are compelled to perform illegal acts like this is because they know it’s going to generate buzz, website traffic, and subsequently – income. The only way for that to happen is for the general public to catch wind of what’s going on and follow the path to the photos. If none of this happened, there would be less and less reason to do it again. It’s like a comedian who repeatedly finds himself with a silent crowd, eventually he will probably get the hint and find a new career path.

Dare I say, each person who looks at these photos is part of the problem. Maybe that sounds a little harsh, but you are viewing images that were meant for one human being, taken by another human being, of the most intimate sort. I know it is a cliche argument, but if this was your girlfriend/mother/sister/wife, would you want people all over the world seeing the photos? I don’t think so.

Furthermore, it shows a blatant disregard for the respect deserved by these people – not because they are celebrities, but because they are human beings, just like you and I. They have chosen a career path that puts them in the public eye, but they still have the right to choose what people do and don’t see.

If you want to see a naked woman, either go find some pornography (there are plenty of consensual nude photos floating around online) or actually try making enough of a connection with a woman that you become intimate with her. That might be a nice change of pace.

I know, it’s the “forbidden fruit,” any adult film star can plaster nude photos of themselves online but you have been just dying to see what’s under Jennifer Lawrence’s dress! Well, too bad my friend – just like the woman next to you on the subway, she has no obligation to show you, or anyone else she doesn’t want to.

One last fact – if you are one of the many who is rightfully creeped out about what someone had to go through in order to obtain these photos, consider this: Actress/Singer Mary Winstead tweeted that the photos of her that were leaked were taken with her husband in private and had been deleted years ago. Now think about what really had to go into accessing them. Creepy to the highest degree.

    Your article is just click bait bullshit, riding on the coattails of the leaks. You have seen them you hypocrite white knight.

    • James Michael Sama on September 1, 2014 at 11:09 am

      Whoa, your email is jlaw@hotmail, are you Jennifer Lawrence?!

      No, I have not seen them – that would make me a hypocrite for writing this article. But thanks for your baseless, insulting accusation. 🙂 Have a great day!

      • Ghostly on September 1, 2014 at 11:24 am

        You seem like a real asshole. Go back to your castle you wanna be white knight fuck.



      • James Michael Sama on September 1, 2014 at 11:25 am

        trololol. Thanks for visiting my site. 🙂

        Nah, I’m Jude Law



      • James Michael Sama on September 1, 2014 at 11:25 am

        Ah! How did I even miss that? I’m a big fan, thanks for visiting!



      • josealdo on September 1, 2014 at 8:44 pm

        Damn bro, you seriously need to listen to Joe Rogan’s podcast , bc you are part of the problem man. I read this without seeing who it was written by, and I was FUCKING SHOCKED that this was a dude when I was done reading. You are not getting any brownie points for being “a moral and ethical male specimen amongst the animals.” I loved her before and even more after this.

        Let’s play devil’s advocate; this corky I don’t give a shit about hollywood mentality that J-Law has given off is, in retrospect, due to her fucking and sucking off NUMEROUS MARRIED men to get her scripts, roles, auditions…. to get to where she is! Now she does’t need to anymore….. and we are supposed to believe that side of her never existed or that could not have happened like that? A wild young I don’t give shit mentality who bangs her way into stardom, trust me she’s not the first, nor will she be the last.
        ALL HAIL slutty side of J-LAW !!!!!!

        and piss-off James.



      • James Michael Sama on September 1, 2014 at 8:50 pm

        Thanks for your comment Jose, though I am confused about why you think this would piss me off or think I am trying to get brownie points from anyone.

        I don’t care how Jennifer got where she is. Just like I don’t care that Christy Mack is a porn star and wrote an article about how she shouldn’t have been hospitalized by that idiot she went out with.

        Do you think Jennifer’s personal or professional choices give people the right to violate her most intimate privacy? Because that’s what it sounds like you’re saying, and I will vehemently disagree with you all day on that, even if it means standing alone.



      • josealdo on September 1, 2014 at 8:59 pm

        I am saying that WE don’t know the full story and granted it may be “wrong” for her intimate moments to be revealed. IN THIS DAY AND AGE when you’re naked in front of a camera, you have to be a fucking idiot if you do not think it’s going anywhere else at some point in time during it’s existence. In fact, it probably gets a lot of chicks off at the thought.

        Back to the point…. KARMA IS A BITCH…..we don’t know the full stories, but there is definitely evidence that this is not pictures from just one bf or intimate partner….. so who is to say that bc she was possibly fucking married men, that she didn’t finally get hers? Oscar, Golden Globe or not, KARMA DONT GIVE A DAMN !



    • Charlie on September 1, 2014 at 11:16 pm

      It’s thought out, how is this click bait? And why hide behind anonymity? You’re a simple troll.

    • Nor do I care. on September 2, 2014 at 8:02 pm

      Loud mouth.

    • Linus Karlsson on September 4, 2014 at 7:50 am

      Josealdo, you say we don´t know the full story (which is true) and still you say that she fucked around a lot and such to get where she is?? You seriously don´t know anything about the business and just make big wild assumptions of how Hollywood life really is!!

      I work in the movie business. I may not work in Hollywood yet but the few people that I heard or talked to that have worked there says it is hard work, hard work, hard work and a lot of people that screw you around!!!

      And for James, he´s fucking right!! I love Jennifer Lawrence’s, shes a brilliant actress and yes, really hot! Bu´t I would never look as such photos of her if she never wanted them to be public in the first place!!

      lol

      • SamaSlayer on September 1, 2014 at 1:31 pm

        He replies “lol,” but you know it stings him every time someone criticizes this blog drivel. Someone ought to steal his USB and upload his whore girlfriend.



      • James Michael Sama on September 1, 2014 at 1:33 pm

        This wasn’t a criticism, it was another nameless troll, probably from 4chan, who came on here and called me a name. Said nothing about the actual content of the article. Ohhh it stings so bad. Someone make it stop!

        You guys are cute with your anonymous screennames, but all you’re doing is telegraphing the fact that you’re not man enough to use your real names when you troll the internet. All you’re doing is helping my traffic rankings. 🙂



  3. Joe on September 1, 2014 at 11:12 am

    Really like your phrasing in the final paragraph, “One last fact.” Because I mean you’re right. There’s no real way of debating this, and I admire your confidence in putting it across in such matter-of-fact writing.

    • James Michael Sama on September 1, 2014 at 11:15 am

      Thanks Joe! Expecting a lot of trolling comments from 4Chan right now, but it doesn’t change my opinion about the topic, nor the fact that this is a blatant violation of human privacy.

      Unfortunately, the very people who did the leaking are going to find their way on their site and spam it too, but hey, such is life!

      Thanks again for your feedback.

      • Hwlefk on September 1, 2014 at 2:25 pm

        Another poorly written article by a blogger trying to capitalize off the phrase “Jennifer Lawrence Leaked Photos. Laborious writing style, OP.



      • James Michael Sama on September 1, 2014 at 2:28 pm

        Sorry you didn’t enjoy the article! I am always open to constructive criticism to improve my writing style though, so please feel free to offer suggestions.

        Also, is there anything particular in the content of the article you disagreed with? Or do you just not like the way I write?

        Always appreciate the constructive criticism. I am just a guy with a personal blog trying to learn, after all.

        Thanks!

  4. SS on September 1, 2014 at 11:40 am

    While I agree with you on a certain degree, let us not forget that said celebrity, or any celebrity for that matter, took those pictures on an unsecured networked device.
    I’m not saying that gives permission to anyone to compromise said device and obtain/distribute them, but if you want something to be kept secret, keep it off your phone, take some measures to prevent a leak. We can only be as secure as we try to be.

    Now, to the person who actually did the gathering and distribution of these photos; nothing can be said. Humankind is cruel, and will jump at the opportunity to get even a little bit of something out of someone else’s misery.

    Whatever the case may be, it’s done. Her photos are online, just as any other celebrity’s photos. And just like any other celebrity, she has to get over it and keep on. It’s not an easy thing to do, but she will have to do it.

    What actually makes me sad is, the shitstorm began because it’s Jennifer Lawrence, while at the same time we have many leaked nude photos of many other celebrities, but no one seems to give a shit.

  5. the real Michael James Sama on September 1, 2014 at 11:45 am

    look. you’re defending way too much instead of pointing out what the problem is: whores taking naked pics to send out to boost their own self-esteem or get something they want the easy way because they know they’re desirable. as far a I’m concerned, a decent, good mannered, moral person would never do this. so you know what? deal with the consequences of your whoreness. besides, it’s only a given that most women in Hollywood are like this. think they got to where they are by being saints? you’re a moron.

    that said, who the hell saves personal pictures online?? I have videos and pictures of my girlfriend saved to a local HD or to USB drives and stuff. the hell I’m letting those pictures stay somewhere where someone can creep on them through the internet. stop uploading stuff to your cloud drives, newbs.

    • TruthDelivery on September 1, 2014 at 1:25 pm

      So you’re saying your girlfriend, who invariably does not exist, is an immoral whore for letting you take pictures of her? Way to be, bro. Way to be.

      • Emily on September 1, 2014 at 5:34 pm

        That’s what you got out of this? Did you actually read it?



      • the real Michael James Sama on September 1, 2014 at 11:24 pm

        um… your reading comprehension skills are severely lacking.



  6. Bryan on September 1, 2014 at 11:49 am

    I agree with everything that you wrote. My only rebuttal would be..tits. Glorious Jennifer Lawrence tits.

    • the real Michael James Sama on September 1, 2014 at 12:34 pm

      even then, she’s still incredibly overrated. a dime a dozen.

  7. V Cruz on September 1, 2014 at 12:42 pm

    lol and youre contributing to the “problem” by telling people not to look. also you are seeking attention

    • James Michael Sama on September 1, 2014 at 12:44 pm

      How exactly is telling people to not look at them and giving logical reasoning behind my opinion contributing to the problem? I would like to hear the train of thought that lead you to that conclusion.

      Also, what kind of attention am I seeking, exactly? I am a blogger who often writes about current events – of which this is one.

      Thanks for your comment. 🙂

      • Lord Protector :P on September 2, 2014 at 12:35 pm

        Hi JMS, a simple read, but you got your opinion out.
        dont mind the others. haters be hatin, we be rollin.

        oh, and you wanted to know how you are contributing to it?
        allow me to explain this with an example – an old one, but effective psychological technique :
        clear your mind of all thought, just listen to this: dont think of a pink elephant.

        what are you thinking of now? 😀



  8. Kate's Bookshelf on September 1, 2014 at 1:06 pm

    Brilliant philosophy and I totally agree with you. I honestly had never thought that anyone searching for these images is as much of the problem as is the person that hacked the devices, but it’s true. If we all stopped wanting to see the salacious, then it wouldn’t be as common for these images to presented online for people to be titillated by. And at 24 I did ‘stupid’ or questionable things as well. Heavens I wouldn’t have wanted any of those things I did out in the public spectrum.
    Great post.

  9. Sarah on September 1, 2014 at 1:25 pm

    Thank you, James, for pointing out a real problem and standing up for these people who were violated. Trolls, you are sub-human and revolting. It is a sad world we live in.

    • Tim A Machelski on September 1, 2014 at 2:34 pm

      Used my real name for you poser. Just had to chime in with a hearty “F these chicks!” My philosophy has always been “don’t do something if you are worried about other people finding out and/or seeing what you have done”…. Don’t want to go to prison for bank robbery? Don’t rob banks… Don’t want naked pictures of yourself online? Don’t put them on the F-ing cloud. Are you stupid or what? I guess what I find most amusing is how JMS here feels the need to come galloping to their defense. (maybe he is hoping for some kind of ‘my hero bj’ kind of a scenario as a result. Can’t blame him for that pipe dream. Maybe I should do the same.

      Yes. I am changing sides. You should all be ashamed of yourself. Don’t go looking at these pictures…

      But if you find them send me a link ok?

      • James Michael Sama on September 1, 2014 at 2:37 pm

        Thanks for using your real name, Tim! Hopefully you will set an example for all of the other keyboard warriors scouring the interwebs for people to disagree with. 🙂

        I can’t say I blame you for your philosophy, I guess my only asterisk to it would be that they didn’t willingly put these things online to be pillaged, it was done by “force,” so to speak. But yes I think some m9re general information about the cloud would be helpful to help prevent these things from happening in the future.

    • James Michael Sama on September 1, 2014 at 3:48 pm

      “Original” implies that this is a copy, Rosie…that is a completely separate article which I doubt is the first one ever written on the topic. But thanks for the link!

      • Rosie on September 1, 2014 at 3:53 pm

        Maybe INSPIRATION would have been a better word. You are right, probably not the first but there are too many similarities (beginning with the title itself). Thanks for replying and good luck with the blog.



      • James Michael Sama on September 1, 2014 at 3:55 pm

        Thanks! Perhaps the similarities stem from our common opinions on the topic? I can’t say I read that article in full before I wrote this one…still haven’t, actually. As they say at the end of movies, “any likeness is purely coincidental.”



  15. Steven Quinlan on September 1, 2014 at 4:21 pm

    I think you’re right James. Don’t get me wrong, Jennifer Lawrence is an amazingly good looking woman, but if I were ever to see her naked, I’d want it to be because I’d earned a place in her life where she wanted me to see it.

    Anything else, pass. Just pass. I don’t need stolen nudity.

    I’ve been reading your site for a while, because frankly I like a lot of what you write.

  16. I'mAgirl,likeAllTheOtherOnes,andI'MaMuslim.RespectEveryReligion on September 1, 2014 at 4:22 pm

    U are right. Really nice artical. She is just a girl and imagin what would be going on her mind and in her life right now, at home she is a daughter, sister, girlfriend, not a superstar . İmagin what she must be going through right now. İ wish this situation gets better for her. No girl or women(unles she is a complete whore) would want this to happen to her. Everybody has a private life, they have sexual needs, famous people are no different than other people. And every woman and man has right to hide there body if they want to. People should understand this!

    • James Michael Sama on September 1, 2014 at 7:08 pm

      So you saw an article about logical reasons to not look up these photos, then you look them up, and blame my article? Perhaps the direction your finger is pointing is a bit off base. I still have not seen them because I’ve made the conscious choice not to search for them.

      It’s easy.

  22. mjmsprt40 on September 1, 2014 at 7:18 pm

    I’m taking a huge risk replying to this, seeing the rather juvenile replies this post has had already, but here goes:
    You’re right about the privacy issue. It’s funny, some of the same people who will join picket lines against NSA spying (which, incidentally, has been shown to be out of control and more than a little wrong) will download JLaw nudes without a second thought.
    Now, about the issue of what, exactly got hacked: I’ve been hearing that it’s ICloud servers that got hacked, not individual phones. Personal bias: I have not trusted the “Cloud” servers– any of them– from the get-go. When I bought this laptop it came with the ability to back up all my files to HP’s cloud servers. Nothing doing, not gonna happen. I don’t trust the cloud even a little bit, and wouldn’t put anything there that I wouldn’t put on my blog for public viewing. My backups are on thumb-drives, which are still not entirely safe– such things can easily be lost or stolen– but they are, at least at this time, still exclusively under my control here.
    If you want to take nude photos of yourself, have at it. But, save the nudes to off-line storage– such as thumb drives– that you control. Don’t put it on the cloud, and on the off chance that phones were indeed hacked don’t leave anything sensitive on your phone.

    • mjmsprt40 on September 2, 2014 at 10:12 am

      Quickie reply to my own reply: I notice, James, that you didn’t have any filtering set up. My reply got posted immediately last night, with no moderation even though it was my first post on your blog. That’s a wee bit unusual, and it’s not hard to see why everybody else– including me– has moderation of some sort for first-time posters. It’s not hard to set up, and saves your comment section turning into the thing I see here.

    hey! I LOVE your blog, you have such a thoughtful and intelligent point of view that is smart- yet tastefully modest.

    i ran into a bug that I’d like to bring to your attention: I often like to use the text-to-speech on my iphone, however when I highlight the content of your article and attempt to have it read outloud, the sound of an unyielding monster turd gurgling on to the edge of the bowl as it’s being flushed occurs. is this normal?

  25. Jem on September 2, 2014 at 10:22 am

    “What just happened here is the on the spectrum of most intimate in violations of human privacy”

    I can’t believe you wrote that sentence without irony. How about genital mutilation in Uganda? The recent rape of a poor female student on a bus in India? The Dnepropetrovsk Maniacs footage uploaded all around the internet? ISIS beheading videos all over the net? Videos of 9/11 plastered all over YouTube – complete with the desperate last acts of suicides by the victims?

    Where do these rank in your “violation of human privacy”, are they not “intimate”?, less “intimate”? More “intimate”? How far your ruling rod must stretch?

    The fact you felt the need to write an article about this defending the utter stupidity of moneyed “celebrities” who take candid nude photographs of themselves on their mobile phones and then upload them to a cloud saving service, rather than more pressing world issues (Europe on the brink of the largest military conflict since WWII maybe?) says more about your moral and social priorities (or lack-there-of) than the utter gutter-trash who leaked them.

    “Homo homini lupus”, it’s being going on since the stone age. A better use of your time maybe informing people of more serious matters… Or just keep riding the attention pony all the way to more blog views.

    Bye now.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I enjcounter a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.

    The ssue is something which too few folks are speaking intelligently about.

    something regarding this.

  29. Bernard v on September 2, 2014 at 1:26 pm

    I think Apple has liability exposure as do every person who opens these illegal files. Under the Restatement of Torts 2nd there is a cause of action for invasion of privacy. Most states except Va. What is more invasive than intentionally,
    Seeking stolen intellectual propert to get a gander at the most intimate private moments of anyone. Some of the people have assets that are well worth the attorneys to pursue. So if you are decent you won’t search. But more important if you think you are immune from looking for it,Apple will have to disclose who had access to the Picts through legal discovery. I hope my comment provokes others to explore this avenue.

  30. Stella on September 2, 2014 at 1:56 pm

    I’m in awe of how many people are angry and lashing out at JMS for stating his thoughts on the matter. What’s even better is that most people don’t even give a reason as to why they’re insulting Mr. Sama, who clearly understands what the word “private” means. Oh, and here is the definition for those of you who forgot: “belonging to or for the use of one particular person or group of people ONLY” I think if JLaw wanted us to see her boobs, she would have shown us by now.
    And for the “if you don’t want anyone to see it then don’t do it” argument, what about Mary Winstead who took her photos for her husband ONLY?!? Those personal photos were deleted long ago and someone still found them, I’m more concerned about the hacking, just because we aren’t celebrities doesn’t mean it can’t happen to us.

    Oh! and one more thing… the lack of respect for women and their bodies just frightens me.

    I dont understand why you wrote this article? Jeniffer Lawrence is publicly saying that she is appalled by this breach of privacy but behind closed doors she is loving life. This is free publicity for her!! Do you know how many roles she will land because of this. The public loves her now and she needs to capitalize. There are thousands of wash up actors that would love their nude pictures to be leaked! Im happy these pics have been leaked because now she makes more money and I get to see her in more movies!! Lets not pretend she is actually upset about this.

    AHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAA! I’ll be ROFLMFAO at this little streetwalker’s naked snatch photos for a very, very long time…..serves her right. I HAVE no respect for this little tart, and she doesn’t WARRANT respect from anyone. These are probably her casting couch shots anyway, because it’s the ONLY way she could have gotten any screen roles–she’s a horrible “actress”. Prostitutes like this don’t deserve any “respect”–I’m glad they posted these. Don’t want your snatch hanging out all over the internet? Hey—here’s a clue—maybe don’t take pics of it, huh? OH yeah. XD

    Mr. Sama,

    I applaud you. Simply put, I have a high level of respect for you and what you post on your blog(s). You are a very inspired individual, whose views on relationships between men and women are unequaled in truth and insight. Thank you for your insights into our human relationships and people in general. You’re truly amazing, and in this instance, you provide a very compelling article on how wrong this incident truly is.

    I happen to agree with your views, regardless of what my other human peers might think. It is not right that this occurred. To anyone, even a celebrity. Now, we all know the warnings that aren’t written, but that come with the use of electronic devices. EVERYONE, has something called “common sense”. And as such, we should use it. (When you take a picture, SOMEONE MAY see it. Or get access to it. When you do something, SOMEONE MAY find out! That’s totally not an issue here.) But, we also all know that we don’t usually think everything through. Did she put those pictures in a place that should have been secure? Yes. Did she ever think this could happen? Probably not. Regardless though… This is an atrocious breach of privacy, and no matter if the person in question knew or not this could happen or even cared; it wasn’t HER fault! People who think that it was, and blame her, are only seeing half the battle. I think that the person who should be receiving all this “hate”, not you, Jennifer, or anyone else, is the person responsible for this horrifying act.

    You’re correct when you say that she is a human being. She is, just like all of us. And no self-respecting human being with an ounce of compassion and sense in them, would ever do something like this. I am a rather young man, and my experience is not very large in categories like this. But, I have a very high set of standards and morals, and this goes against every single one of the ones that I have. I would hazard a guess that if it was any of us, or our loved ones, whose photos were leaked to the internet, we would be clamoring for someone to come to our defense too. We would want someone to tell everyone what you’ve just said. Someone to act and take out what it is that distresses us so.

    So, for all of you who think that this man, JMS, is getting attention or is less of a man because of what he has said in this or any of his posts, you may need to get a reality check. There are few people on the face of this earth who can throw a stone at JMS, and those of you who are, should probably look at yourselves and what you have said once- or even twice- more. Mr. Sama, Jennifer Lawrence, others who have been subjected to this debacle, they deserve our respect. And it’s my opinion that we give it to them, in any way that we can. (That means, no hating and no looking for pictures, for starters.)

    Yours Truly,
    An Aspiring Gentleman

    100% agree and respect your article. It’s nice to have a man (real man) show such respect. THANK YOU

  35. artmoscow on September 2, 2014 at 7:30 pm

    I am sure Vatican is fully behind your logic. But they also believe in miracles, you know.
    Urging men to NOT go over to [link to J.Lawrence pics] has as much sense in it as protesting against the law of universal gravitation. As much as I applaud your celibate choice, I can’t understand why you don’t see that branding other choices as immoral represents the deadly sin of Pride ))

    • James Michael Sama on September 2, 2014 at 7:33 pm

      Sorry…I don’t follow what you’re saying here? I am very much NOT celibate nor do I associate myself with the vacitan, christianity, or ANY religious organization for that matter.

      Any similarities between their opinions and mine on this issue, are coincidental.

      • artmoscow on September 2, 2014 at 7:44 pm

        Religious or not, you preach with the fervor of a pulpiter )

        “Celibate” was a clever adjective for “choice” (at least I thought it was then). OK, strike it out, along with the deadly sin of Pride, and replace the latter with arrogance.

        If I decide to have a look at JL’s nude pics, it doesn’t make me an immoral man, just a normal one (if I don’t then post them on my blog).

    […] If you haven’t noticed by now, I have a tendency to speak out about hot button issues that affect us as a species and as a society. Issues that treat others unfairly or unjustly. The latest of which in the pop-culture mainstream is the leaking of hacked nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence, and multiple other female celebrities. […]

    I want to start by saying that I respect your view points. Your argument is well presented, but it’s fraudulent.
    Certainly, I agree that these women are “human beings,” and that regardless of the fact that they are celebrities they feel the same emotions as ordinary people, such as embarrassment, and an emotion that you don’t completely take into account in your argument, regret.

    Two months ago, long before this leak occurred, imagine I said to you, “hey dude, did you know that people hack into people phones and computers and steal their personal data, including passwords and intimate photos?” Would you give a confirmation to that question? Certainly you would. This isn’t the first time this has happened. People know that there is a possibility that the photos they take of their most intimate moments can be disseminated through the method aforementioned or some other nefarious means. If you deny the existence of this possibility or don’t take it into account when you or other people participate in these activities, whether you are a celebrity or not, you are divorced from reality. And any attempt to shame people for viewing these photos by either you or the celebs themselves is blatant naivety. People know these risks, and I say this with extreme emphasis, that’s why they don’t take nude photos!! You mentioned my mother, my sister, or my girlfriend. They are smarter than that. If my girlfriend wanted to show me something, she would just do it.

    Are they victims? Certainly. They are victims of the hacker/s. They are victims of large technology companies like Google and Apple, who unbeknownst to us, pool all our private data. Where is their blame? One can even argue that they are victims of their own vanity. But to claim that people who look at these photos are the perpetrators is a ridiculous assertion.

    I respect women just as much as you do, but sometimes women have to have respect for themselves.

  39. […] Yesterday I read a post written by James Michael Sama.  It’s a very professional looking blog, unlike mine and is one of the best blogs around (apparently).  It was pure chance that I decided to read it, it was rated as a top blog and I wanted to see how the professionals did it.  His blog was entitled ‘Why you shouldn’t look up Jennifer Lawrence’s leaked photos’.

    First off, nice blog.

    I have written a reply to your observations at http://lifehurtsblog.com/2014/09/03/why-people-will-look-up-jennifer-lawrences-leaked-photos/

    I hope you see my reasoning.

    Good post, if slightly unrealistic.

    Reblogged this on Sex & the polygamous city and commented:
    I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to see it. Invasion of privacy is like rape through a veil. I think it’s just as heinous. Someone very close got a hold of the entire collection of leaked pictures, saved JLaw’s and shared them with me. It became another trigger for my emotions that have been on this roller coaster of a ride of grey, where I am just feeling my way towards full circle of this relationship that is not a relationship.

    Tremendous things here. I am very satisfied to peer your article.
    Thank you so much and I’m having a look ahead to toucfh you.

  46. I’m not that much of a online reader to be honest but your sites really nice,
    keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to

    I hate people who ask questions and then answer them themselves.
    – Is the OP a total blowhard?
    – Absolutely.
    – Would the world be a better place without him?
    – Damn straight!
    I didn’t look up the photos simply because I don’t find her attractive or interesting. Also, maybe I’ve been living in Europe so long that my views on this have changed, but I honestly don’t care. The only thing I find fascinating about all this is all the blowback from people like you.
    All these retarded statements, like:
    “Saying she shouldn’t have taken the photos is slut-shaming”
    “You can’t tell young people not to take nude selfies, that’s like abstinence and we all know how effective that is”
    I know those 2 weren’t yours, but they were 2 of the stupider ones I came accross. Anyway, in response to your respect argument, I have respect for those who accomplish something meaningful – I respect Stephen Hawking. I have respect for those who stand up to tyranny or evil – I respect Malala Yousafzai. I don’t automatically respect actors/actresses who store porn of themselves on their phones. I might respect them for something else, like if Robert DeNiro’s nude selfies came out (:-D I’m sure everyone would be clamouring for those) I would still respect him just as much as I do now – hell, in his case I might even make an exception and I’d respect him more.

  48. AOD23 on September 23, 2014 at 4:50 pm

    The reason this is such a big deal for the world is because we put sex and nudity on a pedestal, then we go about thinking that every celebrity shouldn’t be a part of that pedestal, if we didn’t pay as much attention to Hollywood and the media and went about our own lives trying to figure out ways to become a part of that inner circle (instead of invading the privacy of those whom are a part of the limelight) then maybe it wouldn’t explode like it has. I agree humans have their rights and it is a blatant breach of privacy but, if you don’t want something to happen don’t create the steps necessary for it to do so, its quite simple. say no or give it little to no thought.

    Think about this way (and I understand her age group and her lifestyle) i’m not a celebrity, yet if i were I sure as hell would not be taking nude pictures of myself in fear that I may get hacked, its not the clouds fault this has been happening long before the cloud’s conception, so it is no surprise that this happened. when you’re a part of that crowd you’re constantly being barraged by papparazzi, hackers, and scam artists. just because of your fame and fortune, everyone wants a piece and there isn’t enough of you to go around, so make enough of you to go around.

    Back to my original point, if we just allowed things like this to happen on a regular basis would it not get old “sex’ would quickly become a thing of the past if celebrities just bared it all, its not like they’re ugly they could get away with it and make money doing so, think about Lindsay Lohan she has done nude shoots with Playboy at least three times (maybe not as herself) sure it was all the rage back in 2011, now you hardly hear about it, why? because she wasn’t afraid to, she didn’t get angry and start filing lawsuits she just went with it and I respect her so much more for that. not to mention she made millions on one photo shoot alone, because she’s a celebrity and she signed a contract.

    Japan and Europe do that frequently many of their celebrities (at their own will) sign up to be in skin flicks and photo shoots and they make money, because “sex” is not shunned its a part of life, just like death. once everyone starts seeing it that way it won’t be such a big deal.
    I’m an artist I may not be Famous but, when I was around the age of 15 I started drawing nude women, I have been since because, I believe the nude female figure is beautiful and erotic, not sinful, not wrong… Beautiful.

    P.S. I’ve seen the photos. does it make me a bad person? no, its simple curiosity.
    would I ask a celebrity to take of her clothes upon meeting her, no. that would make someone very uncomfortable, maybe if I knew them on a more personal level I would but, that is a whole other ballgame 😉

    • Linus on October 14, 2014 at 11:14 am

      Although you make a good and thoughtful comment, it´s just that you say that we should see every celebrity naked and that they should be OK with it.. I´m pretty sure that’s not way many have worked hard to get famous..

      And understand that Japan, Europe and North America have very different´t cultures.. And even if it seams harmless that celebrity’s post naked, by will or not for the public it can actually be quit harmful.. Women are frequently portrayed as sexual objects in ADs, mags, TV and so on and so on.. But not men. So we see whole or half naked women all time, every day. And still when women in a celebrity statues get leaked photos or posted publicly by will, it get hell of a fuss! Have you ever heard of leaked photos of a celebrity men gone wirl?? Even if you have, I don´t recound that you see it as often and that have been as mutch of a fuss about it? And I doubt that is because celebrity men don´t post naked for public or private photos.
      Still think that more celebrity women should post naked..?

      I live in Europe and I can honestly say that is just a such big deal hear as it is in North America..

      And I mean, if you haked into your hot neighbor next doors computer or cellphone and printed out a bunch of naked photos of her on flyers to put around the block or the stairwell. She woulden´t get that happy, right.?

    “What just happened here is the on the spectrum of most intimate in violations of human privacy.”

    That’s what’s so hot about it.
