    Everyone should treat everyone else with respect, but -- and I hate to say this -- chivalry is dead.

    Some of the biggest offenders of "sharing" personal images are young women trying to shame other young women. Good behavior is classless and sexless. Everyone, not just females, are deserving of basic respect and decency.
    I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.

    That's a little bit like the phrase, "I'm not a racist, but..." What comes after the "but" usually counters what came before it.

    No more "buts." No more blaming women for men acting like neanderthals and animals. All that does is perpetuate the problem. Time to break the cycle. Condemn the men that did wrong and teach men and boys how to properly treat women.
    Some of the biggest offenders of "sharing" personal images are young women trying to shame other young women.
    The men that share it are just as culpable. They should stop it dead there, call out the women that shared it, and delete the images. That's not what happens, and that's a problem.

    Good behavior is classless and sexless. Everyone, not just females, are deserving of basic respect and decency.
    Agreed.

    Just to clarify the record here...
    This was not an active duty Marine who pulled these pics. It was an ex-Marine contractor. You can train until you turn blue; this stuff is going to happen, particularly when invited by the actual naked person to do so.

    This female Marine put these nekkid pics of herself on Instagram. How stupid do you have to be to not realize that they'd be disseminated, and then object to them being disseminated?

    She brought this upon herself.

    Regarding chivalry...

    "For all sad words of tongue and pen, The saddest are these, 'It might have been'." John Greenleaf Whittier

    "Our minds control our bodies. Our bodies control our enemies. Our enemies control jack shit by the time we're done with them." Stick

    Sure, just snap your fingers and wallah, easy as that.

    Progress is shortsighted by definition.

    Easy to say and I don't really disagree, but it's probably wishful thinking. I'd imagine most Marines are wired a little differently.

    When you put men and women in close proximity for extended periods of time, there are going to be problems. That is just a fact. It has been like that since Day One and will be like that until the end of time.

    I cited Kipling in my initial response. In Tommy, Kipling said "Single men in barracks don't grow into plaster saints". That was true in 1890 when he wrote it, it is true today, and it will be true 200 years from now.

    Nope, after guys like you die off, it will no longer be true. Most men have evolved.
