Her face after is the most discomforting thing about this.

The Line Between Advice and Blame

edwardspoonhands:

Some people don’t seem to get this. They say “If you don’t want your noodz stolen, don’t put them on iCloud!” And then everyone’s freaks out and they’re like “I’m just giving advice!” 

Because there’s two ways that sentence could be understood. To them it sounds like “Here is some helpful advice I am providing for you that will decrease the overall number of distressed people in the world.” 

But to the person who’s just had a terrible thing happen to them (or the people actually capable of empathizing with them) it sounds like “If you put your noodz on iCloud, you basically deserve this.”

I think that there are a lot of people to blame for this…the hacker, of course, who I hope feels like complete dirt and gets caught and goes to jail. But also all of the people perpetuating a culture in which some people’s bodies become de facto property of everyone just because they’re actors or whatever.

But blaming the victims is like saying “You deserved to have all of your stuff stolen because you didn’t have an alarm system.”

There is, however, a place for advice (not just for celebrities (though I dearly hope that all of my YouTuber friends are being careful with sensitive stuff) but for everyone) about the best ways to keep sensitive data secure.

Just like celebrities tend to have good home security, there are steps that should be taken (and I’m sure are being taken) to secure their data. And just like we all have locks on our doors, there are also things we can do to decrease the chance that information will be stolen from us.

So let’s take the world as it presents itself and ensure that all advice comes free of blame.

He didn’t even go outside the US!? Like, there’s a whole earth before you have to flee to space.
