As most of you probably know, someone somewhere dumped a deluge of purported nude photographs of a number of female celebrities online yesterday. The victims include the likes of Kate Upton, Victoria Justice, Ariana Grande, Kirsten Dunst, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Krysten Ritter, Yvonne Strahovski, and Teresa Palmer. But the focal point for this story has been Hunger Games/American Hustle actress Jennifer Lawrence, since the Oscar winning actress is perhaps the most famous actress on the planet right now. Without going into sordid details ( Justice and Grande have claimed their respective photos are fake, others have confirmed they are real), I’d like to make two very specific points. Ms. Lawrence and the other victims have absolutely nothing to apologize for in terms of the contents of the photos or the nature in which they were leaked. The story itself should not be addressed as if it were a scandal, but rather what it is: A sex crime involving theft of personal property and the exploitation of the female body.
Outlets as mainstream as People and CNN are referring to the photo leak as a “scandal.” All due respect, it’s not a scandal. The actresses and musicians involved did nothing immoral or legally wrong by choosing to take nude pictures of themselves and put them on their personal cell phones. You may argue, without any intended malice, that it may be unwise in this day-and-age to put nude pictures of yourself on a cell phone which can be act and/or stolen. But without discounting that statement, the issue is that these women have the absolute right and privilege to put whatever they want on their cell phones with the expectation that said contents will remain private or exclusive to whomever is permitted to see them just like their male peers. The burden of moral guilt is on the people who stole said property and on those who chose to consume said stolen property for titillation and/or sexual gratification.

Since I’ve been to places and seen artifacts that are over thousands of years old, historical sites in America just don’t impress me anymore. I’m on a tour of the Rockefeller estate and the tour guide is talking so enthusiastically about how much history there is but…it’s only like 100 years old……..
Laptop Usage in Bed: the slippery slope
Korra getting “get well soon” cards.
The airbabies making “get well soon” cards. With lots of glitter and an abundance of sequins and some bison fur getting stuck on the glue.
Meelo fastens together a bottlecap and one of Rohan’s safetypins to make Korra a war medallion. He presents it with a respectful solute to his commanding officer.
Ikki draws Korra a picture inside her card. She’s smiling and playing airball with the kids, eating cotton candy as a ridiculous number of rainbows cover the sky. She tells her to “feel better” with a hug.
And then Jinora leading the new Air Nation while they make “get well soon” cards. The airbenders writing out heartfelt messages thanking Korra for all she’s done: for giving Daw hope for the future, for leading Kai into a better life, for helping Opal reach her potential, for saving many of them from the Earth Queen’s imprisonment. And then for giving her life for theirs; for being an inspiration. Korra has given them so much, and now they’re trying to give something back.
KORRA GETTING “GET WELL SOON” CARDS.
