A type of pornography referred to as revenge porn has taken over the Internet, prompting California to pass a bill criminalizing the act.

Revenge porn is posting sexual images of an ex without their consent. In California, it is now punishable by up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

But a loophole in the state’s legislation allows for nude selfies to still be posted. Posting revenge porn is a cowardly act. If the Internet did not provide offenders with anonymity, they wouldn’t be so eager to commit the crime.
