Law Against Revenge Porn is Advocated in Sacramento

Posted on Jun 12, 2013

If you’ve ever suffered from nude or sexually suggestive photos of you posted online from an ex, you know how mortifying and out of control the whole situation can feel. Posting pictures of former partners online anywhere from sexually suggestive to explicit is considered “revenge porn” in the law making system.

Revenge Porn is highly damaging not only to an individual’s reputation, but their emotional well-being and confidence as well. Photographs meant to be something private and special are perverted and used as hateful backlash in the event of an altercation between two individuals. Lawmakers in California are appalled at this hateful behavior of posting private pictures of people online without their consent.

Once it hits the internet it becomes like a virus, and it can never go away. That is why revenge porn is so damaging. The bill presented by California State Senator Anthony Cannella has written a bill that makes revenge porn a misdemeanor punishable by a $1,000 fine and possibly a month in jail. The bill is a reaction against the tragedy of Audrie Pott’s suicide after a sexual assault by three peers at a party. Graphic photos were circulated around the school, and feeling like her life was completely ruined, took her life soon after.

Victims of revenge porn know that a bill from Sacramento is a small reprehension against their aggressors. They are left with their lives turned upside down with no hope of reconciliation. They feel their lives are forever tarnished, and that they will never fully recover from the trauma acted against them. Many websites like “Is Anyone Up” provides links to social media profiles opening the way for relentless harassment.

Extortion claims are acted on behalf of revenge porn websites for requiring a payment to take the photos down. Sometimes the best protection these people can turn to is simply burying of their pornographic links in Google Search Engines, but removing them completely is hard work. Hopefully the law will discourage future revenge porn due to criminal repercussions that may be associated with it.
