No pity for nude selfies [Letter]

Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and the "dozens of other beautiful celebrities" who posted nude photos of themselves in digital airspace should read "No Place to Hide" by Glenn Greenwald. The book outlines how little privacy there is online and explains in detail what Edward Snowden revealed about the NSA.

I have no pity for these women, and if they were smart, they'd laugh the whole thing off. But it was their fault. These are gorgeous, wealthy, over-privileged women who did a dumb thing. Why should they expect us to join their "pity party?"

Susan Reimer is correct to hector women to change behavior ("Stars: No nude selfies," Sept. 4). I'm tired of reading about rape charges brought by girls who were so drunk they couldn't remember what happened. And anyone sharing explicit photos of themselves should understand this may lead to revenge porn if posted online later as retaliation.

Sorry Jennifer, Kate and the rest of you, you did a stupid thing. I have no sympathy.
