A zillion percent of celebrities, especially actresses and models, have done nude shoots, ESPECIALLY in Europe.
Others have had their private photos violated by hacks.
To try to use that to sabotage somebody’s career, take them ‘down a few notches’ or try to humiliate somebody as if to say that, by the end of the day, they’re just body parts is frat boy rape culture.
Weaponizing nudity, body shaming and sexually demeaning a woman, any woman, just means you've nothing more to contribute to society and your brain has devolved to animal mode.
It's no different than succumbing to racial slurs when you're not getting your way. Perhaps even more significant since it involves 50% of EVERYBODY.
It seems like men see a beautiful woman and immediately imagine her naked. But, when they get to see it, they think she's a slut.

Your Sunday Morning Song...
Sung by the author- the groundbreaking, beloved and underappreciated Buzzy Linhart

I got to see him play The Bandshell in Central Park, MC'd by the first goddess of FM Radio, Alison Steele...

Your Sunday Morning Song...
Light years before Blue Man Group, using relatively primitive tech not much more elaborate than early 80's video arcade programming (and an overhead projector in her live shows), Laurie Anderson took it to the wall and out of the ballpark.

There's still ghost posts out there from the original online journal from the Arcturus Mission.

In these warmer months, how do you feed the outside cats without creating an ant infestation? Ants hate bay leaves. Tape a 'crown' of them on the snap-on lid of your resealable container. While outside, place the container on its own bay leaf festooned lid. Not an ant in sight. When you bring in food at night (to prevent raccoon invasion), the lid snaps back on to repel any inside cooties. Yes, I am the Jane Goodall of the cats :)

Another piece from circa 1998 transcribed to the InterGoogleWeb...

One of my favorite writing teachers, Julie Thacker, would use various methods to stir up the creative potential in her class.  There were long term, short term and extremely short term assignments. She would sometimes pass out prints of classic paintings and give us fifteen minutes to absorb our impression and translate it into a very short story. I was lucky to get this work by Magritte. 
Thanks, Julie. Thanks, Rene.
