Revenge porn websites are ridiculously cruel to gay men

A number of gay men are speaking out against a revenge porn forum insisting that leaking someone nudes without permission is wrong, immoral, illegal and cruel. MaleGeneral invites users to share images and videos of gay males and encourages its community to create threads full of images of one person. A majority of the content comes from men who sell their porn and want to attract customers, but it appears that some content is taken illegally and the men depicted are often unaware that their pics, names and personal data are revealed. The NSFW forum is making it especially difficult for men to have the revenge porn taken down. The site dictates that in order to have a post taken down, a number of hoops have to be jumped through and if men fail to meet the requirements by the website then they are called out on a separate page called “removal requests”. Those who fail to follow the specific instructions are mocked using abusive language such as “turds”, “idiots” and “morons”. The site also posts the personal information of those who fail to apply to have the photos taken down properly. Surprisingly, the disturbing conduct of MaleGeneral seems to get through the loopholes of the law as Alex Haydock, a legal assistant at Open Rights Group, explained that it would be difficult to prosecute the website under the normal laws regarding revenge porn.
