Baby Porn?!

Article link: A Child Porn Site Stole A Photo Of My Baby

A few weeks ago I was just scrolling through my Facebook feed and found a link to an article which linked me to another article. The article that I want to share with you is about a young mother who found out that her newborn’s picture was stolen from her personal page and used for a baby porn site.

I will not get into the details here because she does a much better job of explaining the circumstances. I just wanted to react to the part where she mentions that her friends practically blamed her for the virtual violation of her baby.

First of all I will make the obligatory statement: Baby porn is wrong. It is not okay to use pictures of children to drive one’s sexual desires.

Now back to the insanity of writer’s friends. The author of the article: “A Child Porn Site Stole a Photo of My Baby”,  mentions that there was little sympathy or even outrage offered towards her family after this violation took place. The authorities were stone faced, her situation was just another case number to be investigated and filed. I guess she should not have expected warming comfort from them. What bothers me the most was that her friends basically blamed her for the whole incident. Really?

Have we not learned to move past victim blaming? For all the marches, protests, and chants for respect and against sexual exploitation: this is as far as we have come? Some sick person searched the web to steal an innocent image shared by a young couple; then the thief posts it without the owner’s permission to a child porn website with lewd comments about wanting to violate the child; all which results in the emotional pain and suffering of the parents. After all of this happens, the parents are considered to be at fault and are advised to rearrange their online lifestyle. Their feeling of anger, guilt, and shame are practically dismissed. Really? I don’t think they were asking for it? Nor do I think they should have been violated in that manner. More importantly their feelings deserve to be validated and they should be supported by “friends”.

That’s my 2 cents 4 u!
