It may be natural for some people engaged in a romantic relationship to exchange personal i.e. nude pictures. However, there have been many cases of women being blackmailed by men who threaten to leak their private pictures online. Not just blackmail, many people have leaked private pictures of women online.
This has become a crucial topic of discussion – should women send such private pictures to men whom they trust? In a debate that took place on Twitter recently, many expressed that people shouldn’t send nudes to anyone, irrespective of how much they trust them.
Girls get horny, they send nudes regret it later. Same story back and forth. how many times it takes you to learn your lesson???? Men mfs won’t change you should protect ur dignity. NO MAN should be able to jeopardise your image like that. Please stop disrespecting yourself.

Some highlighted how men asking for nudes is a massive red flag in the first place. A few others said that if women decide to send nudes and later fall victims to blackmail, they can’t blame men.
Girls should know that the moment a guy ask for nudes, he is playing with you and you should actually ghost him.
I am telling you, if any person respects the other person, they ain’t be askin for nudes.

Dekh kar koi delete ni krta. I would say. It’s girl fault. She first take N* and send… its consent

Unfortunately I have had friends whose nudes were leaked by their ex boyfriends. It is a very bad situation to be in, and puts one in a trauma that takes years to heal. If I put myself in their shoe, every stare looks like they are judging you.

One more thing, if a guy ask for it, girl should stop talking to him right away and never talk again, it should be the end of conversation for her. No sorry, no excuse accepted.

That is the point; the girls will have to grow themselves as over-sensitive about this thing by trusting no one and creating the firm walls of boundary around them.

Girls don't disrespect your self like this if a man really respect you he will never ask you for your nudes and just don't send it yaar if you are willing to destroy your dignity than why you think he will not? https://t.co/aiKq9FvIdz

When you practically clicked pictures of your self naked and willfully sent it to someone you’ve already jeopardised your image. You’re solely responsible for it.

On the other hand, many highlighted how the above argument is nothing but a classic example of “victim-blaming”. If a woman shares private pictures with a man and takes him within her confidence, then the man is to be blamed if he decides to misuse the pictures.
This is a classic case of slut shaming “protect your dignity” so a women who wants to share her body with someone she loves isn’t respecting herself? Take your internalised misogyny out of here little donkey ain’t nobody is listening to your bullshit https://t.co/BoSifOiGXy

You can’t discount feelings and emotions here and how manipulation and guilt plays a part in women sharing pictures they aren’t comfortable sharing. Some men are super skilled at doing it because they’ve done it with so many girls, a lot of girls don’t stand a chance..

the problem is not about girls who like sharing their nudes and trust people easily the problem is the people who misuse these pictures or dont keep it safe

No actually you can. Consent doesn’t come with a life time guarantee. Just because someone made a decision to send nudes doesn’t mean that they should be blamed for his abusive behavior. We can ask women to be cautious without victim blaming

Girls know that your dignity does not lie in a nude you may have sent.

most of the times girls are ‘pressured’ & manipulated into sending nudes. We all know how risky it is & to not trust any man. But can men be decent enough not to emotional blackmail & manipulate woman??? also victim blaming isnt a cute look hun x

When someone disrespects your privacy and something you trusted them with I fail to understand how you blame the sender and not the one using their pictures for such malicious things, it’s not that hard to gauge and girls(whose privacy is being abused) are never at fault https://t.co/0MMPHaLs1U

Men act like assholes and breach trust but yeah let's blame girls for it. Makes sense. 👍🏽 https://t.co/9uItOo14mi

I respect that this tweet is well intentioned, but it is also victim blaming guised as whatever it is. It's ok to share your photos with someone you trust, what's not ok is that person breaching the trust.

sending nudes isn’t the best practical decision, but trusting someone you love is certainly not “disrespecting yourself.” we can support victims of revenge porn and help them protect themselves without telling them to “grow some brain cells.” https://t.co/XEqVFIbjRT

People trust either out of love, hurt or when they have been manipulated. You propose something which isn’t practicable. Mistakes are inevitable but it doesn’t give one right to weaponise what you offered, when you confided in them. https://t.co/jGB0brZzc2
