20. What scum.

The administrator running the service, known only as "P" said: "I don't care that much. This is entertainment that does not carry violence.

Just because there is no physical violence does not mean there is no abuse taking place. The argument that there are "wars, diseases, many bad things that are harmful in the world" so this harmless by comparison is just -- oh, shut up. Shut. Up.

"No one will blackmail anyone with this, since the quality is unrealistic."

Maybe no one is being blackmailed yet (that we know of) but that's only because the quality is unrealistic so far. eta - Just watched the video that goes with the article. Bella Thorne was blackmailed, and released her own nudes rather than let someone release fake ones. How awful for her, or anyone, to be put in that situation.

"It's devastating, for victims of fake porn. It can completely upend their life because they feel violated and humiliated."

Likely part of the thrill and the point for some, if not all of the people drawn to the service. I use the terms 'people' and 'service' loosely in this instance. Talking about this just in terms of pornography misses part of the point -- computer generated images of fake people with fake faces is possible. Why not do that? Women have been posing for nude photos for as long as cameras have existed. Why generate a fake at all? Well, faking the face is a little more trouble, plus then the violation and humiliation element is lost, especially if customers have particular women (or children) in mind.

This is a form of identity theft, as well as targeted assault and abuse, and that really should be emphasized when devising legal protections against the activity.
