By now I’m sure you’ve all heard about the nude photos of female celebrities, like Jennifer Lawrence, that were leaked after a hacker posted them to numerous websites run by soulless bastards. First off– I was not that hacker, this is not a confession. I actually chose JLaw to play me in the movie version of my life whilst The Boyfran and I were having brunch on Sunday. It seemed like an obvious choice:
“She’s funny but really good at being angry and depressed.”
“Yeah,” The Boyfran added, “and she’s super awkward.”
Those of you who’ve been reading this blog since January– or who’ve had the courage to dig through the archives– know that I’ve had my own nightmare of an experience with naked photos going viral. And that’s exactly what I’m talking about over at Cosmopolitan today.
Three Reasons You Should Read This
1. Because I somehow managed to condense the 15,000 words I’ve previously written about this into a concise 1,400. (the original assignment was for 800 to 1000 words but OOPS).
2. Because this same story went viral on Reddit a few months ago and I didn’t have the self-control or fortitude not to read the comments, where a vicious band of trolls accused me of making up the entire thing. Just so you know, I had to submit 33 pages of legal documentation for this 2-page article so Cosmo could fact check everything. IN YOUR FACE, HATERS.
3. Because it’s Cosmo, OMG. I’ve heard of them.
Massive thanks to Gunmetal Geisha for helping me edit the shite out of this thing, and to Angelle for providing emotional support/letting me know what’s happening in the world because you all know I live under a rock.
