After 400 Australian women had their nude photos leaked on a U.S. website this week, Australian talk show Sunrise landed themselves in hot water by victim-shaming the ladies on Facebook.

The post has since been deleted, but not after inciting ire by questioning, "What's it going to take for women to get the message about taking and sending nude photos?"

Clementine Ford, one of the women whose photo was published without her permission, wasn't about to let Sunrise get away with blaming her for being hacked. She took to Facebook herself to publish this photo and rip the shamers a new one.

"I have taken nude photos of myself and sent them to lovers. I've taken nude photos of myself when I'm bored. I've taken nude photos just because I have a smartphone and it's fun," she wrote. "None of that means I have asked for my privacy to be violated, my photos stolen, and my very self made available for public humiliation and judgment. Consent is everything."

She makes a good point, but the sad fact of the matter is that anyone, male or female, needs to be aware that putting something on digital media means that there's a chance unintended eyes will see it someday.

It's not just photos either -- emails can be equally devastating when they're hacked. Look at what happened with the Sony email hacks last year.

In a perfect world, of course everyone would respect each other's privacy, but we don't live in a perfect world; we live in one with some seriously sucky people. The best way to protect your privacy is to not send naked photos.

Or, you know, start a campaign for harsher punishments for criminals who leak private photos.

What do you think should happen to people who leak private information or photos to the public?
