I wanted to write this blog so I can put the truth out there. The authorities (police, social services etc) have let down so many people and will do anything in their power to silence those who speak out. In 2004 I was placed on to the child protection register for emotional and psychical abuse, […]

A Useful Fiction

Not a patch on his fiction. Or: “the greatest work of journalism from the nineteenth century”? “Anton Chekhov’s “Sakhalin Island,” his long investigation of prison conditions in Siberia, is the best work of journalism written in the nineteenth century. The fact that so few people know of the book, and that among Western critics (not […]

My Hope Is In Thee By Cathey Lynn

For us as believers, contentment should be governed by inner attitude and the decisions we make rather than by external circumstances. Because Paul had learned this secret, he was able to experience joy and peace in any kind of situation–whether he was surrounded by friends or isolated in a Roman prison; whether he had plenty […]

What do socialists want? Is there an end goal to socialism? It strikes me as insufficient to say that the end goal is “the collective ownership of the means of production,” because that state of affairs is clearly only desirable because of something about collective ownership that itself has normative appeal. Why should we own […]

Actress Bella Thorne posted topless photos of herself on social media in response to threats from a hacker who had obtained the images. In an apparent message to the hacker, Throne wrote: “I can sleep tonight better knowing I took my power back. U can’t control my life u never will.”Many fans have supported the move, calling Thorne brave, while others wonder if this incident is a stunt to promote her new book. The Tweet Actress Bella Thorne posted topless photos of herself on Twitter after a hacker threated to release the images that were stolen from her. On Saturday, Thorne tweeted out screenshots of text messages between her and an alleged hacker, which included nude photos and videos of Thorne. Along with the photos, the actress also included a message to her fans in the tweet, explaining her decision to release the photos. “I feel someone has taken something from me that I only wanted one special person to see,” Thorne wrote. “He has sent multiple nude photos of other celebs, he won’t stop with me or them he will just keep going.” She continues, “for too long I let a man take advantage of me over and over and I’m f***ing sick of it, I’m putting this out because it’s MY DECISION NOW U DON’T GET TO TAKE YET ANOTHER THING FROM ME. I can sleep tonight better knowing I took my power back. U can’t control my life u never will.” The tweet and photos come just days after Thorne’s twitter was hacked. On Thursday, the actress’ social media account was filled with racial slurs and sexually explicit messages. By the end of the day, Thorne had regained control and deleted all the tweets. Thorne’s full statement released via Twitter. Responses Many of Thorne’s fans have praised her, calling her strong and brave for standing up to her hacker. ppl who try to shame women for private photos they take for others is NEVER OKAY. props to @bellathorne for showing who SHOULD feel shamed in that scenario. spoiler alert: it ain't her.— Elana Rubin (@elanarubin) June 15, 2019 Bella Thorne leaking her own nudes after someone tried to blackmail her makes her the modern day Alexander Hamilton— Really Nice Guy (@yaneezy__) June 17, 2019 However, others have questioned her motivation and wonder if this was just a promotional scheme for her new book. Bella Thorne after pretending to be hacked and leaking her own nudes to gain attention and publicity for her new book: pic.twitter.com/BY7uTRMGHr— Ihi (@iohizua) June 17, 2019 https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js So, just so I understand this correctly… a hacker stole Bella Thorne's nudes and threatened to expose her… So In order to "take back her power" she posts her own nudes online… Now her name is trending… all right before the release of her new book? Is that right? #Word? pic.twitter.com/QeTuvEpHbN— Father Of Sterling (@CowAccount) June 16, 2019 Other Celebrity Hacking Incidents In 2014, hundreds of private photos, including some belonging to Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, and Kristen Dunst, were leaked online. According to the U.S. Justice Department, four men used various forms of fake emails to pose as security alerts from accounts to obtain login information and passwords. They gained access to over a thousand different iCloud and Gmail accounts and were eventually charged with felony computer hacking. All four men ended up in federal prison after being found guilty or accepting a plea deal. As for pursuing legal options in her case, Thorne says she believes her hacker is likely a minor, so she wants to try and be reasonable. “This kid sounds like he’s 17,” she told the Hollywood Reporter. “As much as I’m so angry and wanted to f*** him up over doing this to people I just wanted to teach him a lesson. He’s still a kid and we make mistakes, this mistake is a bad one. But I don’t want some 17-year-old’s whole life ruined because he wasn’t thinking straight and [was] being a dumbass.” “You can’t always tear someone down for their bad sides but more so build up their good sides.” On Wednesday actress Victoria Justice also had her Twitter account hacked. She has since deleted tweets that were posted without her consent, but it is unclear if hacks against Justice and Thorne are related.
