WASHINGTON

It’s vindictive, cruel, and if one Maryland lawmaker has it his way it will soon be illegal.

“We are taking about “revenge porn.” It’s the act of publishing compromising and intimate pictures of a former significant other for no other reason than to get back at them.

WUSA9’s Ken Molestina reports it happens more than you might think and now Maryland delegate Jon Cardin is out to stop it.

The sites aren’t hard to find. A simple google search for revenge porn will give you several internet options where angry ex’s can post mostly nude and intimate photos of their previous loved ones for the world to see. The idea is they are getting revenge on someone they believe wronged them. 

“I was very afraid to leave the house. I went on medical leave from work for 3 months,” Annmarie Chiarini tells us an ex-boyfriend targeted her after a rough break up, and decided revenge porn was the way for him to even the score. She says among other things he tried selling her intimate photos on e-bay, and he sent copies of those same pictures to her employer. 
     
“It’s absolutely terrifying. I mean certainly it’s embarrassing, and with crimes of a sexual nature there is always a certain amount of shame involved.”

Life After Digital

How does digital technology and social media impact the way we experience our lives? In a world of ubiquitous smartphones, tablets and illuminated screens where billions of personal images have been shared online, our collective desire to share our lives on social networks may have unintended consequences that we are only just beginning to understand. “Life After Digital” examines the end of privacy, cyberbullying, digital revenge and a new generation of facial recognition technologies that effectively turn the face of every social media user into a barcode.
