How A Danish Activist Reclaimed Her Body After Her Ex Posted Revenge Porn

HECK YEAH to this: Danish activist Emma Holten’s ex-boyfriend released “intimate photographs” to a creepshots web site three years ago, and she’s reclaiming her agency over her body by publishing topless photos for which she has given her consent.

The photos depict her in the process of doing everyday tasks like reading or brushing her teeth in order to give a human context to the sexual content her ex-boyfriend shared without her permission. She told the Feminist magazine Hysteria that after he shared the “creepshots,” she got messages from strangers asking her if her parents knew she was a “slut,” if she had gotten fired, and trying to threaten her into sending them more nude photos (in typical online-asshole fashion).

This week, Arizona’s Republican Governor Jan Brewer signed a law cracking down on so-called “revenge porn,” classifying it as a sex offense. “Revenge porn” consists of sexual photos or videos which are posted online without the person’s consent. Generally speaking, ex-boyfriends or jilted partners post intimate images or videos of ex-girlfriends, which go up along with the women’s full names, addresses and employers. The aim is to ridicule humiliate their victims.

AZ’s strict new law makes “revenge porn” a felony, establishing an initial 18 months in prison, or two-and-a-half years in prison if the person in the image can be easily identified. It will apply to any “photograph, videotape, film or digitial recording of a person” and makes it a crime to “disclose, display, distribute, publish, advertise or offer.” It doesn’t include an exception for photos deemed by the press to be in the public interest, such as celebs’ or politicians’ sexy photos. It does make an exception for “voluntary exposure in a public or commercial setting.”

True Story: I've Been Called The "Erin Brockovich" Of Revenge Porn

I felt like Will Smith in “Enemy of the State.”

I was being hunted, harassed and stalked by criminals with technological expertise. I had been thrust into an unexpected war. I felt exposed, vulnerable and alone on the front line. I had awoken a hideous network of villains and saboteurs, who were in pursuit of me, hoping to ruin my life. I had received creepy emails, backlash on Twitter and three death threats. My computer had been bombarded with viruses, and a technician had advised me to buy all new equipment because the malware was tough to remove. Keep reading »
