Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
It's not an easy question to answer, and shouldn't be because there are so many factors, and it differens on a case by case basis.
I take my stand on the proposition that the publication of nude and/or sexually explicit photographs without the consent of the subject is a form of rape.
And I take my stand that this is a vile statement that devalues actual rape.
This not art. This is not speech.
Who is to define what is and isn't art and speech? You? Me?
This is humiliation. This is malice. This is revenge. This is greed. This is crime. Revenge porn
Then call it these things. Stop trying to make it something it isn't, and admit you consider stopping these to be much more important than freedom of speech.
Free speech cannot survive in an atmosphere of fear and intimidation. Free speech has to mean something more than the adolescent's desire for instant sexual self-gratification.
No it can't. It also can't survive in a world of arbitrary rules about what is and isn't "fee speech". However, the adolescent's desire for instant self gratification is perfectly legitimate.
I am sick and tired of the geek playing the censorship card when anyone asks him to behave like an adult.
But people are advocating censorship, and narrowing what freedom of speech is in order to rationalise it as something other than censorship!
Free speech is not limited to the first amendment. Reddit offers a degree of freedom of speech. For a discussion forum, this is seen as a good thing. Now they are offering less freedom of speech. Whether this is a good thing or not is (from a users perspective) a question of the importance of freedom of speech in a forum balanced against the importance of privacy, and from a business perspective a question of balance of the expectation of the users for freedom fo speech against the public perception.
Freedom of speech is not limited to government.
I do agree that it's still a silly term.
The US doesn't need to use them in Korea. They can cede responsibilities for those to South Korea. Pointing to what South Korea does is a far less compelling moral argument.
However, on the matter of Korea, the proposed alternative is autonomous guns. Unlike mines, these things don't hide, so, at the very least, we know if all of them are accounted for. But these could be banned by an overly broad anti-robot rule.
Surely there's more comprehensive advice available from organisation that actually know the first thing about this than Slashdot.
I just previously assumed that it was the developer/journalism clique using feminism as a shield. Yes, there's a feminist clique that thinks they're gamers. Yes, there's a chunk of the clique that follows third wave feminism. To most feminists, gaming is a fringe hobby. To most gamers, feminism is an unimportant political position. The majority on both are neutral on the other aspect.
You have accepted their narrative, and conflated them. Youv'e managed to unite your opponents.
Well done, you fucking morons!
