it is also a predominantly male based place of employment and she could be seen as a distraction.
What an interesting assumption and stereotype of the men with whom she works. I shudder to think that she could be working at an institution where the very thought that a woman might be naked under her clothing could drive the employees to distraction. If that is the case, it seems to me that she isn't the one in need of serious professional behavior counseling.
Yes Garden Goblin..she did consent for him to see these pictures but she sent them over the internet. Once she consensually sent him those pictures, with the absence of any written agreement, she loses her right to them,
I feel terrible for all those girls who have ever consented to allow their significant other to view them naked without first getting a written agreement. It truly says nothing good about our society that the thought that a woman's naked body has been exposed means the woman in question deserves to be censured and shamed.
If she was looking for a modeling job by sending nude photos, one could argue that she implied consent to passing on her resume/portfolio to other interested parties.
Given what people have said regarding the victim of the Steubenville episode, it's clear that people can argue all kinds of rather sickening things. Again, that is a failure of society, not a failing on the part of the victim. And the victim is not the one that should be blamed for society's ability to rationalize away all kinds of poor behavior.
It's not the nude pictures that will prevent her from getting a job. It's the incredible display of the total lack of common sense involved here.
It is extremely sad that allowing oneself to be seen naked makes one a flawed individual in the eyes of society. But again, that is a failing on the part of society, not the part of the victim. It's sad that being seen naked is something that has such negative consequences. It's a human body. Everyone has one. Everyone has seen one.
Warning people not to engage in foolish, high risk behavior is not victim blaming.
Warning someone not to walk on a bridge because the bridge is unsafe is not victim blaming, because the bridge doesn't choose to collapse. Warning someone not to become intoxicated because someone else may choose to take advantage of them is victim blaming, because the decision that caused the problem isn't the decision to get drunk, but the decision to take advantage.
Plenty of people have sent nude photos of themselves and had it turn out fine, because the person they sent said photos to didn't choose to behave unethically.
