Turning a blind eye to survivors

The popular online community Reddit is a haven of image-based-sexual abuse (IBSA).

Image-based sexual abuse (IBSA) is the creation, theft, extortion, threatened or actual distribution, or any use of sexualized or sexually explicit materials without the meaningful consent of the person depicted. Often, IBSA includes the use of sexually explicit or sexualized materials to groom or extort a person, or to advertise commercial sexual abuse.

  • Reddit has no meaningful age or consent verification for sexually explicit or suggestive content
  • Its moderation practices appear to be inefficient by design
  • "Leaked" or stolen sexually explicit images are easy to find on Reddit, and countless people post online about how their non-consensually shared images are circulated on Reddit
