Seeing the enormous rise in the amount of #deepfakeporn becoming available online is deeply troubling.

Those who harvest the images of famous female celebrities, or innocent women and appear to be complicit free in regards to the tremendous harm they are inflicting.

“What’s the problem, it’s FAKE.” They say. “It’s fantasy.”

The use of non-consensual images in #deepfakeporn is a form of #sexualabuse. One that is a crime here in Ireland.

Certainly the legislation might be tested in the event an Irish celebrity like #SaoriseRonan was to make a formal statement of complaint in regards to the 15 #pornographic vidoes which have been viewed over 400k times on #MrDeepFakes.

Technology is neither good nor bad, it’s what we do with it that determines whether it is positive or negative.

From reading this article it’s clear to see there is an immediate danger to children and both women young and old that we need to address. Ultimately, it is their images being used to create pornography that is so authentic looking, many would struggle to convince others, it’s not them.

A huge question arrises regarding the responsibility of big tech companies who are affording creators and platforms to promote this content like Google , Instagram and TikTok.

Just like MindGeek, the owners and creators of this content have also monatised the sexual abuse of vulnerable people.

It’s not in any way acceptable, nor should it be legal for an individual in any juristiction to create a porn video using the face of a real person without their permission knowledge, or consent.

Reading this article you can see the complete disconnect between the purveyors of this technology and the acceptance of responsibility or consequences, both for them and their victims.

We seriously need to address this issue now.

We can start by coming together to help to

We also need to identify the people and businesses behind it.

This company promotes the ability to protect content creators anonomity.

Why be anonymous. Obviously on some level there is a realisation that what they are doing is inhumane and abhorrent.

It’s time to put a name and face to these individuals so the victims can get the justice they deserve.
