Nancy Kaffer says Kate Upton isn't to blame for stolen photos, commenter rebuts by calling her ugly

by: Eric B.

Tue Sep 02, 2014 at 17:40:11 PM EDT

Nancy Kaffer writes a column today that shouldn't have to be written. But, it had to be written because there are apparently a lot of people who think that if you are famous and attractive, and if you take nude photos of yourself and upload them to what you think is a secure cloud service, that you are to blame if someone infiltrates the cloud service's defenses, steals your private property and then -- without your permission -- shares intimate photos of you to which they possess no publishing rights. In fact, if you believe that people who comment on newspaper websites are anything of a cross-section of American society, it appears that about 30 percent of all adults believe this, because they certainly felt the need to correct Kaffer that if you are famous and attractive that you should expect people to steal your intimate photos from a protected cloud server and publish them on the Internet, or at the very least that it's somehow  victimless crime.

Right wing moralizers
view it as retribution from God for improper behavior. These are the same people who think a black kid walking down the street is at fault when a cop shoots him for no reason. The same people who believe that laws against illegal search are only important to people with something to hide. The same people who believe the poor are poor because they are lazy and stupid.

Never mind that it is, as you point out, a criminal offense to steal private material off of a server and publish it. In their world, bad things happen to people because they deserve it.
