“Jenene” of NZGirl has responded to yet more criticism of that site’s fucked-up marketing campaign on 30 Days of Kate with the following:
No under age girl is allowed to post, nor has posted. I’m happy for you to send me any images that you are concerned about.
Here’s how it is, people.
A site marketed as “for girls and women” encourages its readers to send in pictures of their boobs for public posting.
This site institutes absolutely no safeguards to ensure that the submissions are genuine or legal beyond an absolutely terrifying “I accept the terms and conditions” button.
This site then proceeds to ignore, insult, and defame its critics who try to point out the extreme skeeviness of this campaign.
Pictures submitted end up on porn sites.
The NZGirl editorial team accuses a feminist critic of posting them (in wonderfully passive-aggressive tones).
Finally, an editor at NZGirl denies that any of the photos can be underage or used without permission, without explaining what, if any, vetting or investigation they have done to establish this …
And then makes it our fucking job to send her any photos we are concerned about.
Guess what, Jenene?
Your site making your readers unsafe is
