But we have a bigger problem with privacy - in that when people abuse (either sexually, emotionally or physically) their family they usually do this in the privacy of their own home. But privacy extends way beyond the home - it can be done in all manner of ways on the internet.
Well I won't go into corporations invading our privacy in our homes via computers and the IoT.
My issue is that all the invasion of our privacy via corporations doesn't protect us from those who'd harm us in our homes.
If you are being abused by a parent it's not like google or the NSA is going to come rescue you and stop the abuse.
Some while back on Facebook a guy I'd never met sent me a photo of his erection - in private. He sent it via direct message - so it was all done in private - you know - so everyone will continue to think this guy is a good guy because he'd never do such a thing - in private - because we can't see it - it probably never happened - right?
This is where privacy becomes part of rape culture - you see if the guy did come around to my house and physically raped me - it'd then become a matter of he said/she said. Because we've been acculturated to believe that rape is her fault - what was she wearing - in this case - what was my avatar on Facebook at the time - and no doubt Facebook knows what it was just in case such an event does occur and press charges. So then they both (the guy doing the raping and facebook) can prove I was being a saucy minx who had it coming.
It probably would never come out in court that I do not know this guy from a grain of salt.
Anyway, Facebook says it's not against community standards to send unsolicited photos of erect penises via direct message. And if something did happen no doubt it'd be back to he-said/she-said. When I reported the photo and person I got the above response from Facebook.
In other words, Facebook enables rape culture with their policy.
A friend with whom I discussed this said that this guy was 'figuratively' raping.
