Can't we just have nice things and enjoy said nice things without people acting like massive twat faces? Is it just too much to ask that people not act like twat faces?

Why does anyone else care about what kinds of photos he sent to his ex-girlfriends?

It looks like it wasn't limited to ex-girlfriends, but it's really hard to tell.

I took it as two ladies whom he took to be girlfriends at the time but who did not think of themselves as such. Goes to show you: do not send naked pictures of yourself to anyone unless they are begging you to do so in writing (even then, I'd advise against it).

He says he was sexually active with the recipients of said pictures though, so I guess I don't understand what the furor is about? Of course he could be lying, that's entirely possible.

Brief tangent: I never understood the appeal of dick pics. People may like penises, they might want to use said penis, but even if you want them who wants to look at them? They're ugly...of course the fact that I'm straight probably plays a huge role in this opinion.

There does seem to be something pathetic about a guy essentially e-mailing or sexting "check out the merchandise, ladies."

Yeah, that was kind of my main point. It's even worse with celebs. Come on, if you are a really famous person that people want to see nude, do not make a sex tape! No matter what you think of the other party at the time, do not do it.

Well, blame my puritanical upbringing, but I'd find a just vaginal photo (with no context of the whole woman) kind of creepy/dirty too. Don't get me wrong, I'm an admirer of the female form, but I wouldn't be comfortable asking that of my wife (if I had one).

The problem for Yale is that not only did he send pics to TWO women that weren't thrilled with it, but BOTH of them work in the industry! That's your livelihood buddy. I can't imagine the fear of losing all of your income just that quickly. Still, as someone who has sent and requested the occasional digital tease, I find it just a bit hard to believe he completely misread the situation...twice.

Yep, don't shit where you eat. Or in this case, don't snap naughty photographs and send it to people who you WORK WITH. Maybe not directly work with, but this would be like sending your dick pic to Gayle down in accounting, who you might not work with directly but you're still at the same work place.

Maybe it wasn't very impressive and hence the "I don't want this" double response.

I don't. Not everyone is a good judge of character.
However I agree, he's an idiot for posting dick-pics to someone who can mess with his career.

I originally thought the furor was solely regarding the Ferguson Wallpaper, which...I can see both sides of really. Farinas is right, there is a level of gross to it, but then that's coming from someone who's sick to fucking death of BOSTON STRONG.

On the other hand, it's harmless and I like Yale's work. People who don't like it don't have to buy it.

The DickPics...
sigh.

Children of the internet age, please go back and reread "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets." Find the section where Arthur Weasley says to Ginny:

"Never trust anything if you can't see where it keeps its brain."
Then re-read that line until it sinks in that ROWLING WAS TALKING ABOUT THE INTERNET.

As a man, I've never understood the fascination of wanting to expose yourself for a girlfriend (or anyone) on a photo. "Here, world! Check out my rooster!" Hell, I'm married and I still wouldn't do that for my wife, and I know that there is zero percent chance of it being leaked.

Regarding the story, something has got to be missing because the timing seems off. Did he send the dick pics to these women after the respective relationships ended? If you're sexually active or in a relationship with someone, it doesn't seem like a big deal to send explicit shots, unless they were both one-night stands, and the women wanted nothing to do with him afterwards.

If it was unsolicited, that's on him.
If they were solicited, and the person who got them just started spreading them around...that's on them. And really shitty of them, to be honest.

I would say that, if you have sex with somebody that does not equal implied approval of them sending you naked pictures, but it should, at least, mean that if they do so, your relationship ought to be close enough that you can tell them straight out, at the time, that you don't want such a thing sent to you.

Personally, I think it is stupid to send naked pictures of yourself to somebody's phone in the first place, and doing so without being specifically invited is a truly horrible idea, but in the case where the person involved has already been sexually involved with you, they should give you the benefit of the doubt, and a response telling you to stop if they aren't interested, rather than silence and later public revelation.

If there was no sexual relationship involved, I'd say, by all means shame the person. I still think it is common courtesy to tell them directly that it is unwanted if it is somebody you know (in addition to the shaming, if you want), but can certainly understand not wanting to have even THAT much contact with somebody sending you creepy sex-related pics.

Or so I thought.

Two years ago, I was engaged in two separate relationships with women whom I was sexually active with. Given the nature of these relationships, my experiences in past relationships, and various dialogues with these women, I thought it had been established within each relationship that intimate or explicit photos were acceptable, possibly even desired.

I GROSSLY misread the situation.
........going strictly off of HIS version of events, I still dont see wat all the fuss was about given neither woman communicated to him that they didnt enjoy the Yale-penjo snapshots, and they were women he'd HAD a a relationship with.

also, Ulises Farinas is a douchebag. a MASSIVE douchbag.
