Petition Against Use of Real Life People Not Involved in Vore

Permanent Linkby Chameleonette on Fri Mar 14, 2014 6:56 pm

I am seriously considering doing this.

The amount of disrespect a lot of vorarephiles show in regards to using pictures of women, men, children, etc, needs to have a foot put down on it. This fetish has so much material that is simply made from manipulated pictures of (for the biggest example:) pregnant women and others. And these are not pregnant women who post their pictures for the sake of vore - they're normal women who are not even aware that their pictures of joy with starting a family and celebrating the growth of their child are being used to fuel fap fantasies for people imagining that instead of having a baby, she consumed someone whole.

There's also the matter of this thread, which was brought to my attention on tumblr: viewtopic.php?f=55&t=37769&p=1963812#p1929632

And this really kicked my butt into gear to get something done about this. Why is Eka's Portal allowing this kind of thing to be posted? Why is the main excuse "the owner of the pictures/videos never told us to take them down"? How the hell are they even going to KNOW what their pictures/videos are being used for? It's a stupid excuse for being utterly disrespectful and invading the private lives of people you don't even know.

Nothing disgusts me more than this, in regards to this fetish. If you want to imagine something in your head, by all means---keep it to yourself. But when you cross the line and go posting these pictures of unrelated women/men/children and messing with their real life photos for the sake of your fetish/fantasy, what you're doing is wrong.

I don't plan just to stop with a petition to get this stuff taken down from Eka's, either. I'm this close to reporting certain tumblrs that are rampant and full of this invasive kind of material. They conveniently don't have ask boxes, probably because there are quite a few people out there who would have something to say about what they're doing. And if they choose to try to bar themselves from criticism for the disgusting thing that they're doing, then I will report them. I'm tired of people doing this and thinking it's fine, thinking it's OKAY to trample on the personal and private lives of normal people who have absolutely nothing to do with vore.

Now, just to clarify: This has nothing to do with real people who post images/videos for the sake of vore. More power to them. If they want to be seen and used that way, then they're more than welcome to it. My problem is with the hundreds upon thousands and thousands of people who are not aware what is being done to their pictures and how they're being used to satisfy someone's fetish and sexual needs. It's terrible. And I will not stand for it.

There is plenty of material for a vore-lover's fantasies. This site alone has hoards of it, so does furaffinity, tumblr, wherever---there's simply no excuse for anyone to go out of their way and encroach upon people who should never be dragged into such a thing.

Learn some respect. Keep your fantasies out of the lives of people who have nothing to do with them.

I'm damn well not going to rest until something is done about this. I even received a tumblr message about a girl who had her pictures reblogged by people who like vore, telling her things like they wanted her to eat them and get in her mouth. And she said it bothered her and that she thought no one cared.

I'm not going to sit back and let this go on. The more of a blind eye we turn to it, the worse it's going to get.

*clapclap* sign me up for that petition.
I've seen plenty of porn actresses being degraded in such a way..
Just because you photoshop a ballooned stomach and add some poorly written text doesn't make it your property.
People see the internet as being a 'free haven for fetishes' and it is, but ONLY for the people who consent to it.
Even as a voraphile i wouldn't be even remotely happy to have my pictures taken and messed with.
One who knows Nothing can understand nothing.

Agreed... to an extent. While I am behind you on your views, especially with the pregnant women/gifs, I feel that the rule should be "Link photos used to the original source, and only use from image stock galleries". Really the only reason I feel inclined to state this rule is so that the people who actually photo manip (and actually manipulate photos, not just add text and a stupid circle) do invest some time in their work, and it is a form of art, and thus considered for posting. Granted, that may just be me being wishy-washy again... also that the 'no photo rule should apply for the chat' unless it's a 'time stamped photo' (Aka, the person in the image must be holding a card up that says their character name and the phrase 'eka's portal' or something showing that the person is aware of what they are being used for... which is the problem, people are 'being used'. The person who is in the photo has no idea that they are being used in this way, and one day a loved one comes on and sees them being used, or worse thinks they have this fetish when they don't... life ruining...

But then again, websites like 'gurochan' (Think 4chan, but dedicated to gore, scat, and 'freakshow' porn) has rules about any images using stuff from real life, manipulated or not(For obvious reasons though, heavier content)

It's a poor excuse for a haiku, but still one of the better things I have written. XD

Agreed. I'll sign your petition once you get it going :) It's always kinda bugged me, but I've never been able to put it into words like this.

Definitely sign me up for this too. It's pretty similar to the main reason why I fled from most of the vore community for a while (and unintentionally got into contact with those few years ago). People only paid attention to my female pred (lot of my art isn't on here) and I noticed there were a lot of shoddily developed female predators. It wasn't much of a surprise to find out this has been happening (but still pretty WTF).

Also, photomanipulations with stock photos should be considered exceptions (as Kamelagram pointed), unless the stock photo provider explicitly says they don't want their photos to be used in such a manner.

I agree with you on such a high level with this. It's always weirded me out. Especially with casual people who have no idea their images are being used. Like seriously guys it's baby. When I become a mother I'm not going to imagine anything like that for a second. You have to draw the line somewhere.

Never even thought that people would be doing this at all, but once you get the petition up I'll definitely sign it. Just because it's posted on the internet does not mean it's free: it belongs to someone, and if you take it and modify it for your own use, it's copyright.

I'm about as sex positive and fantasy positive as you can get.

But how anyone can justify this behavior is unfathomable to me. I don't like the idea of others encroaching on another person's sexuality, but that is because I respect individuality and identity. Stealing someone's actual real life pictures, images of OTHER individuals with their own identities, is barely different from identity theft in the general sense. The very least I would call it is a slippery slope, and I am with you that it is just completely close-minded and almost kind of sociopathic to do something like that. Also, its just gross. I like this fetish to stay fake. Photo-manips completely cross into the uncanny valley for me, so maybe I could be called prejudice but, ouch, no.

You know whats even screwed up and twisted? This sort of crap is ALL over DA. I kid you not. You know how many times I see one of the Photoshopped images show up on the front page(s) of DA showing as "New Art/Image"? WAY too many. It's really sad to be honest. To see how far our world has fallen into the idea that no one has privacy and that people think that they have every right to take something important and precious to one person, and change it slightly and call it theirs. To "share" it with the world in a rather screwed up manner. And it does not even have to be for the sake of Fantasy/Fetishes or not for such things. It can be any art work really. Though for the blog subject, yet I get your annoyance Chameleonette. It both aggravating and completely out of line.
