    This one is a toughie for me. On the one hand, it's an abhorrent practice, and both immoral and unethical. On the other hand, the arguments expressed here against it are generally misunderstandings of the principle of free speech that basically are amounting to "revenge porn is bad so it should be prosecuted." Racism, sexism, homophobia, and all the other "isms" I missed are all horrendous beliefs, but they aren't illegal. I worry about the slippery slope here. Maybe don't make it illegal, but just allow the affected to sue the perpetrator? Like I said, I'm conflicted.
