Revenge-porn victimization in eight rounds

Posted By on Thu, Jan 17, 2013 at 6:00 PM

"As Revenge Porn victims, we have heard it all," writes the anonymous blogger at endrevengeporn.com womenagainstrevengeporn.com.

We've heard about how we're making a really big deal about nothing. We've heard that we are just a passing fancy and everybody forgets about us once we're on page 2. And of course, we have heard over and over again that we are not victims.

Well, we are not going to argue with you anymore.

Instead, we are officially offering you The Revenge Porn Challenge.

"Wow, that sounds kinky. What is the Revenge Porn Challenge?" you ask.

Craig Brittain, revenge porn

In last week's cover story, we wrote about our local revenge pornographer, Craig Brittain. In reporting that story, we found that it was difficult to find any victim of Brittain's site to speak to us on or off the record. In fact, the one woman who agreed to discuss the ordeal with us only did so after we agreed to thoroughly mask her identity.

This newspaper rarely grants anonymity to sources. But in her instance, because of the intense distress and fear she was dealing with, we believed that it was a legitimate and understandable request.

It's because of this reluctance to speak to the press that most victims of these sites don't often get to tell their side of the story. It's left up to our imaginations to figure out how this might affect a person.

This essay — broken into eight rounds of unique humiliations and threats to be endured — attempts to give a glimpse into what it must be like.

In Round 1, you will experience a sudden need to throw up as you view your photos for the first time. You will not be able breathe as you wonder how many friends, co-workers, and family members have had the honor of seeing your naked photos. You will cry hysterically as you wonder how many other websites have blessed you with your own naked-ass gallery.

But this is Round 1, and though you may be feeling a teeny-weeny bit of emotion, we need to make sure we weed out the wussy Challengers from the real ones. So, to make sure that you have fully, 100% thrown up all of your dinner, we will ensure that the close-ups of your snatch, butthole, and boobs are posted on websites that are located in really distant regions, like Antarctica. Why? Because website owners in Antarctica will not give a flying fuck about removing your naked pictures. It will really jack up that fresh feeling of hysteria you feel when you realize that your Round 1 photo removal request is being sent to someone in another country thousands of miles away. Websites owners in Antarctica will be too busy wondering how to take a piss without getting frostbite on their dicks. So, yes, we will start with Antarctica.

To be a true Challenger, you must accept the publication of your full name and city above your photos. This personal information will be typed in Times New Roman, Bold, 14-point font. You also must accept 10x magnification of your vagina upon clicking of each individual photo.
