End “Revenge Porn”

End Revenge Porn

Target: Jackie Speier, U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate

Goal: Ban the practice of posting sex videos as revenge without the consent of both partners.

A YouTube star, Chrissy Chambers, is out seeking to take her former boyfriend to court for videos allegedly posted without her consent. Chrissy was 18 years old when she was involved in a long-distance relationship with a British boyfriend; however, the relationship ended, and the boyfriend reportedly posted inappropriate videos of him and Chrissy on the internet.

Before her relationship ended, and without her knowledge or consent, Chrissy’s ex-boyfriend allegedly filmed himself and Chrissy having sex. According to Chrissy, the boyfriend had suggested that they have a few drinks, and Chrissy had been intoxicated when the man decided to take the film. He posted the sex videos on several pornographic sites, making sure the videos were able to reach a large audience.

It was only after two years when Chrissy received a link that she realized such a videos existed. All along, Chrissy was neither aware of the videos nor the sexual encounter. By the time Chrissy got hold of the videos, they had already made rounds on the internet. Chrissy felt like her life had ended. Worse, Chrissy discovered that she could not do anything since there are no federal laws in the United States criminalizing the act, commonly referred to as ‘revenge porn.’

According to Chrissy, the boyfriend posted the videos as a way of revenge. Chrissy adds that the ex-lover wanted to hurt her and tarnish her reputation. However, Chrissy is not shaken; she is standing up to fight back, not just for herself, but for thousands of other men and women who find themselves in similar situations. In February 2015, the British government made revenge porn illegal, and for that reason, Chrissy has decided to take the first civil lawsuit against revenge porn to the United Kingdom.

If Chrissy’s allegations are true, then what happened to her is equivalent to sexual assault. No one should get away with ‘revenge porn.’ A bill that is aimed at criminalizing the act is currently underway in the United States. However, it will still need a lot of public support to convince the Congress to push the bill. If you want to stand with Chrissy Chambers to ensure Congress ends this horrific act, please sign this petition.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Jackie Speier, U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate,

An American woman, Chrissy Chambers, has made serious allegations about ‘revenge porn.’ Whether she succeeds in her lawsuit or not, it is only in the best interest of America to criminalize this horrific practice. According to Chambers, her boyfriend recorded them having sex without her knowledge and subsequently posted the videos on porn sites without her consent. According to Chambers, her ex-lover, who is of British origin, posted the videos while in England, which has led Chambers into seeking legal recourse in the United Kingdom.

Chambers adds that the ex-lover suggested that they have drinks on the day of the breakup, and that is when he allegedly managed to record the videos while Chambers was extremely intoxicated. Chambers claims she does not recall having sex with him that night. Chambers only came to realize about the videos after two years. The videos have caused Chambers much distress and even loss of subscribers in her YouTube channel. The British government passed a law of criminalizing revenge porn, and America should not be left behind. Take the right action and criminalize this act.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
