this was Flocasts’ response to my email requesting they take down the article and apologise to McKayla. they made no mention of the fact they embedded links to the photos, and clearly don’t plan on apologising, let alone taking the article down. completely avoided and backtracked my questions and requests.

also, their “cover all aspects of the sport of gymnastics” excuse is complete bullshit.

how does “editorial obligation to report” include linking to nudes fake or not of an athlete who may have been underage when the site’s demographic is children between the age of 10-18

Joe Battaglia, writer of the gymnastike article, refuses to apologize because they “refuse to bury their heads in the sand on news because the subject is uncomfortable”

Circulating stolen/fake photographs of a teenage girl that have an extremely high probability of being taken when she was underage?

I think you mean “illegal” not “uncomfortable”

nihileigh:

When we live in a world where you can access free content of naked consenting women in less than 5 seconds, why are people still invading the privacy of non-consenting women for nudes?

Hint: It has something to do with people feeling entitled to making any woman their personal porn, even if it violates or humiliates her in the process.

Anonymous → I gotta be honest with you. How could you not see an incident like this coming? McKayla takes selfies of herself all the time to gain attention along with an endless amount of compliments. She's had over 700k followers for a while & 80% of them wanna see photos of her with as little clothing as possible. McKayla knows what she's doing & she got exactly what she deserved. Why does everyone feel the need to rise to the occasion & defend this girl? For attention? Why can't you admit she's a slut.

Have you registered as a sex offender yet?

If I check the North Carolina sex registry, will I find you there?

Are you aware that it’s illegal for you to live near any public areas where children and families congregate (schools, parks, etc.)

Anonymous → Of course people are gonna deny the topless one. She's underage. And fuck me for knowing this but she has a mole/freckle on her boob that you can see in her instagram and the topless one matches and I don't think anyone would go through the trouble to fake that because who even notices that

my-bff-nastia:

It was all photoshopped. A person I talked to has the original. The mole was photoshopped on and other things were done to make it look more like her apparently, including like…flip flopping it so that it is a reverse image? No idea who went to that trouble but yeah. It’s def not her.

If McKayla is taking nude photos of herself, who cares? If I looked like her I would quit my job and never leave my house so I could take nude selfies all day long. If the photo was really her, whoever violated her privacy would be the one to be mad at, not her. But even though the photo is not her, people are misleading other people to think it’s her, and unfortunately, a teenage girl posting nude selfies is damaging to these girls in this society. She has done nothing wrong and will now have sponsors questioning her ‘integrity,’ young gym fans and their parents freaking out, idiots calling her a slut, etc. 

Whether it’s her or not, anyone who links to the photos is saying that it’s okay to violate a teenage girl’s privacy. They’re supporting this violation instead of speaking against it which is GROSS.
