Katie Hill's Resignation
99 words. A 1 minute read.

Katie Hill, a first-term Democratic congresswoman from California, was forced to resign after her nude photos leaked online. Hill claims her soon-to-be ex-husband, Kenny Heslep, “weaponized” naked photos of her that were then published in a conservative media outlet without her consent.

Nobody should feel compelled to resign from anything because their nude photos have been published. We should stop double standards. I believe if it happened to a male person, he would not feel shame or compelled to resign as community wouldn’t blame him. Taking a nude photo is not shameful. We should shame people who publish them.
