You know that dream?  That bad dream we all have of showing up naked to school, or work?  You’re standing there, so embarrassed, you want to hide, you can’t find clothes, there is nothing you can do.  Eventually you wake up, thank goodness, it’s just a dream..

 

Imagine if it wasn’t.  Imagine thousands, hundreds of thousands of people seeing you naked.  And not only that, they see you sexualized, and give themselves sexual pleasure.  How would you feel?  If you found out, naked, sexual images of you have been spread across the internet?  They have been out there for years without you knowing it, and one day you find out.  How did they get there?  Who would have done this?  You’re horrified.  How do you make this go away?  How do you make sure it doesn’t happen again, to you, someone else?  

You find the perpetrator, the images are taken down.  What next?  You ask “Can I press charges?”  The person who posted these surely should be held responsible.  Your identity, your safety- you have been compromised.  The answer is no.  

“But why?  Just yesterday I was naked for the world to see!  My body was used as a sexual object to make money!”  

But you’re told, “The crime was committed over 6 years ago.  The statute has passed.  There is nothing more we can do.”

Wasn’t the crime still going on, just a few days ago?  The images out there, isn’t that a crime?  The perpetrator left them up indefinitely, intentionally to make money.  How is that ok?

That’s just how the law is written.  If you don’t like it, talk to the legislator.

Sexual abuse can happen to anyone, even within a marriage. As a matter of fact, it happens most often with people we know, or even trust.

No means no, right?  Not to abusers.  They use manipulation, coercion, or force to get what they want.
