DO NOT REBLOG AND/OR PROMOTE JENNIFER LAWRENCE’S LEAKED PHOTOS.
SHE DID NOT RELEASE THEM.
THIS IS AN INVASION OF HER PERSONAL LIFE.
HELP MAINTAIN JEN’S DIGNITY AND HER PROFESSIONALISM AND DO. NOT. REBLOG. THE. LEAKED. PHOTOS. OF. HER.
Stand by Jennifer to help show our support.
OR ANY OF THE REST OF THE CELEBRITIES THAT ARE CURRENTLY GETTING THEIR PRIVACY INVADED RIGHT NOW.
NONE OF THESE WERE RELEASED WITH THEIR PERMISSION, PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DO NOT PROMOTE THEM OR REBLOG THE PHOTOS GOING AROUND. TMZ IS LEAKING ALL OF THESE WITHOUT PERMISSION AND PAYING A HACKER FOR THEM, DO NOT REBLOG THESE PHOTOS.
I just, cannot, for the life of me, understand why someone would do something so heinous. “They just don’t care,” “They do it for the money,” “They’re fucking misogynist assfucks” like. Just. In the house I was raised in, by the mother and siblings I had, in a rural community. I can’t even begin to compute how you can just generally lack such basic respect for someone’s privacy, and then GET FUCKING REWARDED FOR IT. Those images are private, and then someone /stole them/. Literally, there is a huge fucking issue that is:
Restrictions against the invasion of privacy encompasses journalists as well:
“The First Amendment has never been construed to accord newsmen immunity from torts or crimes committed during the course of newsgathering. The First Amendment is not a license to trespass, to steal, or to intrude by electronic means into the precincts of another’s home or office”
Possession of stolen goods is a crime in which an individual has bought, been given, or acquired stolen goods some other way (other than they themselves having stolen them).
…an individual has accepted possession of goods or property and knew they were stolen, then the individual is typically charged with a misdemeanor or felony…
So for the simple fact that not only did the asshole on 4Chan break into these women’s personal data to steal said images, that TMZ is /PAYING/ for stolen images boggles my fucking MIND. These weren’t a gift that these women had no more legal right to once they’d been given, and the asshole was not the person they gave them to if they did. So presently, I can think of a couple of people who should be screwed to the fucking wallfor this, because it is absolutely unaccfuctingceptable.
I have no idea if this will change anything or help at all. But, something has to be done. Apparently, a guy from 4Chan hacks into celebrities iClouds and TMZ is buying them off of him for tons of money. So far - this happened to Jennifer Lawrence (Which they have more of and videos.) and Victoria Justice. Both women are getting slut shamed for their “behavior.” But, who knew their nudes would leak onto the internet. Nudes are very personal photos and it’s wrong to leak them for profit. Very disgusting.
i hate spotify ads because i listen to playlists in the shower a lot and there is nothing more startling than being completely naked and suddenly hearing lebron james say “i’ll tell you what makes me thirsty”
The basics are that for every one female-speaking character in family-rated films (G, PG and PG-13), there are roughly three male characters; that crowd and group scenes in these films — live-action and animated — contain only 17 percent female characters; and that the ratio of male-female characters has been exactly the same since 1946. Throw in the hypersexualization of many of the female characters that are there, even in G-rated movies, and their lack of occupations and aspirations and you get the picture.
It wasn’t the lack of female lead characters that first struck me about family films. We all know that’s been the case for ages, and we love when movies like The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Frozen hit it big. It was the dearth of female characters in the worlds of the stories — the fact that the fictitious villages and jungles and kingdoms and interplanetary civilizations were nearly bereft of female population — that hit me over the head. This being the case, we are in effect enculturating kids from the very beginning to see women and girls as not taking up half of the space. Couldn’t it be that the percentage of women in leadership positions in many areas of society — Congress, law partners, Fortune 500 board members, military officers, tenured professors and many more — stall out at around 17 percent because that’s the ratio we’ve come to see as the norm?
OK, now for the fun part: It’s easy, fast and fun to add female characters, in two simple steps. And I want to be clear I’m not talking about creating more movies with a female lead. If you do, God bless and thank you. Please consider me for that role.
Step 1: Go through the projects you’re already working on and change a bunch of the characters’ first names to women’s names. With one stroke you’ve created some colorful unstereotypical female characters that might turn out to be even more interesting now that they’ve had a gender switch. What if the plumber or pilot or construction foreman is a woman? What if the taxi driver or the scheming politician is a woman? What if both police officers that arrive on the scene are women — and it’s not a big deal?
Step 2: When describing a crowd scene, write in the script, “A crowd gathers, which is half female.” That may seem weird, but I promise you, somehow or other on the set that day the crowd will turn out to be 17 percent female otherwise. Maybe first ADs think women don’t gather, I don’t know.
And there you have it. You have just quickly and easily boosted the female presence in your project without changing a line of dialogue.
Yes, we can and will work to tell more women’s stories, listen to more women’s voices and write richer female characters and to fix the 5-to-1 ratio of men/women behind the camera. But consider this: In all of the sectors of society that still have a huge gender disparity, how long will it take to correct that? You can’t snap your fingers and suddenly half of Congress is women. But there’s one category where the underrepresentation of women can be fixed tomorrow: onscreen. In the time it takes to make a movie or create a television show, we can change what the future looks like.
There are woefully few women CEOs in the world, but there can be lots of them in films. We haven’t had a woman president yet, but we have on TV. (Full disclosure: One of them was me.) How can we fix the problem of corporate boards being so unequal without quotas? Well, they can be half women instantly, onscreen. How do we encourage a lot more girls to pursue science, technology and engineering careers? By casting droves of women in STEM jobs today in movies and on TV. Hey, it would take me many years to become a real nuclear physicist, but I can play one tomorrow.
Here’s what I always say: If they can see it, they can be it.

I think I’ve reblogged this before, but goshdarn it, it bears repeating.
He wouldn’t bring back Donna because he didn’t create her. Why would Moffat take attention away from himself?
Well, I feel I could be satisfied if he didn’t want to keep rehashing the Girl in the Fireplace. Oh, a woman that wants to be your companion has her friends and family view you as an imaginary friend until you save them, too. Oh, you keep meeting the same woman throughout her life. Oh, your robots are harvesting human pieces in a time traveling space ship. Oh, he talked about how he wished Amy was there. Oh, the Doctor has a new love interest retconned in.
The BBC series Doctor Who ended in 2010. It was replaced by a show called Doctor Who Cares Now That Steven Moffat’s in Charge. The title of the latter show is often shortened for the sake of brevity. This has caused much confusion amongst viewers with many believing that the two series are one and the same.
