Lawrence responds to critics who scolded that she should have never taken the photographs at all: “I started to write an apology, but I don’t have anything to say I’m sorry for. I was in a loving, healthy, great relationship for four years.”

Brava, JLaw. Victim shaming and blaming continues to be a huge problem in our rape culture society. I am happy that Miss Lawrence tells it like it is; she has nothing to apologize for. Those were private photos that she did not publish on the Internet. A personal moment made public, and all many can think is, “well why did she take them in the first place?” My question is, why not?
