It's clear that Reddit wants to embrace this aspect of its community, which means it's offering something that could be very valuable to us in the nonprofit sector -- if we're open to it.
After the recent outbreak of leaked nude celebrity photos, I took to the street to capture the thoughts of the people! Is it okay that these pics were released? Did people look at them anyway? All I know is that dick pics are in high demand.
The silver lining here is that with risqué photos and nude selfies popping up pretty much everywhere in our culture (Anthony Weiner ring any bells?), nefarious government or Mafioso types will find it increasingly hard to blackmail anyone anymore.
1. She knows brevity is commanding. While many in her shoes would take advantage of her media platform and have plenty to say about her virtual attackers, her official statement was two sentences.
Photos of women's unclothed body parts drive traffic and readership. It doesn't matter whether it's an ex-girlfriend's bare boobs on a revenge porn site or an Emmy award-winning actress caught off guard on the Red Carpet. Every woman is fair game.
I slowly dialed the FBI field office in Chicago and listened to the numerous voice prompts. Not sure what to press, I eventually chose '3' since I am a media representative. A female agent answered. "Who would I speak to if, uh, compromising material was stolen from my phone?" I asked.
The Internet gives users immense power to affect the welfare of others. Malicious use of that power, such as the recent theft and release of nude photos of female celebrities, confronts users with a perplexing question: Does that power have moral boundaries?
I had to speak out. I mean, I'm a girl. And it would be totally gross if my pics were splashed everywhere. Especially when they were private! After the massive and perverted onslaught of leaked celebrity nude photos, the truth can't be held in much longer!

Women who look at J Law's nude photos may do so in order to compare their own bodies to hers. It's not so much about sexually wanting her (though that may be true, too) as it is about wanting to sexually be her.
A recent decision by the United States Supreme Court makes it highly unlikely that celebrity victims in the leaked photos scandal can recover meaningful damages from anyone.
Jokes are made about the salivating, ugly Americans ogling topless sunbathers at European beaches, but the schizophrenic nature of our country's relationship with sex has passed from laughable to lamentable to downright detrimental.
If you are a guy who has to assault a woman's dignity and privacy in order to fulfill your sexual fantasies, that says far more about you than it does about her.
If you are not particularly worried about being high-minded here, there is another consideration, which is, by looking at the pictures, you are giving criminals a purpose for their act (at least with a degree or so of separation) and causing someone distress. Is it really worth it?
What was once a problem for a small group of content creators -- movie studios and record companies -- is now a pain point for all of us. In a digital era where stealing movies or music is met with a shrug, violating the privacy of classmates is just the next logical step.
We figured that as Episcopalians, while we may not be Catholic, we were close enough: same pomp, no pope, less guilt. It surprises some to learn that Kelly and I actually met at church. We still attend regularly. Not regularly enough, as we were soon to find out.
