Posting Explicit Content Will No Longer Be Allowed On Reddit

Reddit has always been a place where everyone could express themselves however they wanted to, even if some of the stuff posted went beyond the limit of nonconformity. However, this summer the site's owners went against their beliefs when they took down posts which contained stolen private photos of celebrities, like Jennifer Lawrence or Kate Upton. Now, the website is taking another step towards the civilized world through its decision to no longer tolerate pictures and videos with sexual content posted without the consent of the people depicted in them.

In a recent announcement, Reddit made it public that the revised version of its privacy policy will be going into effect on March 10th. This change will officially ban the upload of explicit sexual content posted without the consent of the people depicted in the photos. If you are a victim of what is called "revenge porn" and someone uploaded compromising pictures or videos of you without your consent on Reddit, you can email the staff at contact@reddit.com to hasten the take-down process.

Even though "revenge porn" is still a legal area covered in more than fifty shades of gray, a growing number of states and countries is starting to be more severe in prosecuting those who endorse such practices. In all fairness, when you think about the severe consequences that posting sexually explicit photos of someone without their consent can have on the victim, it shouldn't be so hard to find the legal grounds necessary to punish such behavior.
