Actor Amber Heard is on a crusade for the way we think about & # 39; revenge porn & # 39; talk because the word & # 39; revenge & # 39; implies that the victim & # 39; has done something wrong & # 39 ;.

Heard shared her perspective in the third episode & # 39;The conversation with Amanda de Cadenet& # 39; podcast, published on Spotify on July 16.

Heard is also in the process of adopting a federal law to punish people who distribute explicit images of others without their permission, fueled by the leakage of her own nude photos in 2014.

At the Capital Hill press conference on May 22, Heard said: “My stolen and manipulated photos are still online today, constantly posted with sexually explicit and humiliating and humiliating headlines about my body. , about myself. I am still harassed, stalked and humiliated by the theft of those images. & # 39;

Actor Amber Heard (shown in Malibu in June) is on a crusade to the way we are about & # 39; revenge porn & # 39; talk because the word & # 39; revenge & # 39; implies that the victim & # 39; has done something wrong & # 39;

Highlighting the strong culture of accusing victims when it comes to sexual violence, Heard has focused on the way in which society talks about what has generally happened to her.

& # 39; (The term) & # 39; Revenge porn & # 39; is problematic for several reasons, even if it is catchy, & # 39; Heard told the Cadenet.

& # 39; Revenge porn & # 39; is the expression that people have started to use to describe revealing photos that are shared publicly without the permission of the person depicted in the images.

There is no limit to the circumstances in which this can happen, but in some cases it can occur after a break or during a fight with the person with whom the photos were shared privately.

Heard said: & # 39; (The term) means that there was an action for which the victim was responsible. For you to take revenge, it implies that someone has done something wrong. & # 39;

With a more legalistic view of why the sentence does not suit her, Heard (photo) explained that it is assumed that the distribution of sensitive images of another person is always personally motivated, while that does not necessarily have to be. Heard pointed out that the hackers who stole her naked photos did not know her personally and that they did not know the other Hollywood celebrities who also had revealing photos stolen by people who had their iCloud accounts in 2014 had compromised.

& # 39; It implies the intention to harm, which is limiting for many, many reasons if we define what we & # 39; limit non-consensual pornography & # 39; if we limit it to qualifications such as intent to cause damage, & # 39; she said. & # 39; When someone like me gets their photos hacked, and it goes online, that person does not necessarily intend to harm me. & # 39;

Heard pointed out that the hackers who stole her naked photos did not know her personally and that they did not know the other Hollywood celebrities who also had revealing photos that were stolen by people who had compromised their iCloud accounts in 2014.

Her fellow victims of what & # 39; Celebgate & # 39; was named Rihanna, Vanessa Hudgens, Jennifer Lawrence and Kim Kardashian. All their images were then shared, far and wide.

While several hackers pleaded guilty to steal the photos, no one has ever been charged or punished to distribute the photos to the masses.

Experience has informed her activism. & # 39; I don't feel that the worst things that have happened to me are the most interesting parts of me or my story & # 39 ;, Heard told the Cadenet on her podcast, which was launched on July 2. & # 39; I think what I choose to do with it is. & # 39;

Heard now works on different party lines with Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) and representatives Jackie Speier (D-CA) and John Katko (R-NY) to SHIELD Act successful, which would make the distribution of explicit images of others without their permission a federal crime.

SHIELD stands for & # 39; Stopping malicious image utilization and limiting distribution & # 39; and is aimed at punishing people who distribute things such as nude photos that have been published without permission from the subject.

Heard hopes that by coding an obligation to end non-consensual pornography and cyber exploitation, the conversation around it can begin to record just how wrong it is to view and share those things after they have been stolen and in public opinion have been put.

& # 39; That's the beauty of legislation & # 39 ;, Heard told the Cadenet. & # 39; It's one thing to change attitudes, and when we talk about changing cultural attitudes, we're talking about communicating change, we have to appreciate how much of it is informed by legislation that codifies it. & # 39;

Heard also works with members of Congress to go through a federal law, the SHIELD law, which makes sharing non-consensual pornography and cyber use a crime in itself.
