    I discovered I was deepfaked from this whole situation, and honestly even though I'm hurt I also feel for the sex workers who had their work stolen too. Both me and those SW who they put my face onto were sexually exploited and sold without our consent by someone we don't even know. Thanks for covering the situation, hopefully more people with be careful to make sure all of the sexual material they use was consensual.

      @king yoloman To be fair the rules on youtube are deliberately vague. Ive been temp banned for saying that women are equally as disgusting as men in regards to their sexuality, so in that case even promoting equality is against the ToS.

      @Pessimist it's not up to you what someone else does with something you give to them. If you want to be able to control what is done with something, don't give it to someone else. You can't control what anyone else does.

      @mydogeatspuke also also, just because you give a stranger a picture of your face doesn’t mean you’re telling them “alright, now put it in a porn video, I’d love that.”

    Aside from the tremendously creepy aspect, it's good that you brought up how deepfake porn could potentially be damaging to the careers of the people being deepfaked. Think about it; the wrong people see something like that, like advertisers or investors, they might get fooled by it and decide to cut business ties with the people getting deepfaked. In short, just imagine your favorite content creators getting blacklisted due to sexual content that they never even produced; that's horrible.

      @ImpishlyIt It's about reputation, they care because people care...PBS Kids isn't going to star a famous pornstar in a new children's show, even if it has nothing to do with pornography because at least 9/10 parents who find out who that is (which they will, a news agency or social media influencer or somebody is going to make that information go viral) are no longer going to allow their kids to watch the show anymore, the majority of them might not even trust PBS in general after something like that.

      Companies care about making sure they hire people who have a “clean” background simply because they want to preserve their image as a company. If they were to hire a few ex pornstars for example, and the public found out and it became widespread, that company could lose their good reputation and their income. It’s a risk that companies will not take.

      ​@Lizard King Definition of "literally" is so watered down it seems. But honestly, it's wrong and gross for sure, but I think "rape this rape that all is rape" is pretty counterproductive in these kind of cases. Rape is rape, sexual harrasment is another thing, watering these down makes extremes only but more extreme.
      But for sure we need some kind of law in place for these things. Very real looking pictures of anything can spread like a wildfire and in extreme cases lead to death.

    HealthyGamer_GG did a deep dive on this today that goes into some science about how nonconsensual porn affects not just the victims, but the consumers, and one of the chilling parts of it was that the deepfake stuff is behind paywalls because it's more addicting, because they're attached to an existing powerful parasocial relationship. It was a powerful take and I hope everyone sees it.

    • Taxtro
      Taxtro Month ago

      Yeah, I think it's important to make an active effort not to become too attached to others. Not just people you know, but also entertainers.
      Paying for porn of a specific person could be an indication of too much attachment.
      The rescue is hatred, shame, envy, etc. They help you to distance yourself from others.

      @knockout Well in order for him to know it was a deepfake site, it would have to be advertised as such, and presumably it would also advertise being able to fake his coworkers. Also I'm pretty sure the hub doesn't allow deepfake content so it makes no sense they would allow those kinds of ads.

    Human brains aren't adapted to seeing ourselves doing sexual things that we don't remember doing. In this case it's because we didn't actually do it, but the point stands. It's deeply psychologically disturbing. Dr. K on HealthyGamerGG did a video on this situation as well, it's really insightful.

    • Alice H
      Alice H Month ago +17

      Also my friend just brought up fake revenge porn, which leads to "evidence" of cheating to break up relationships, or maybe non-sexual content that becomes "evidence" that you should be written out of your parents' will, for example.

    • Alice H
      Alice H Month ago +42

      @Akira2234 We're not adapted to that either, but it's one frame and we can, over time, convince ourselves that it's fake and we didn't do that. I'm not saying it's no big deal - editing anyone into sexual stuff that they didn't consent to is wrong.
      But video is a new level that we're not adapted to as a culture, let alone as a species. Our culture still considers video to be a standard of evidence. Even leaving alone that seeing yourself do something you'd never do is damaging to your mental health, it's still damaging to professional reputation and personal relationships, not to mention potential criminal investigations.
      The CIA & FBI have already used slander and framing to take down people they decided to, people that we now consider to be on the right side of history. I have no doubts they'll do it again and worse.

    • juno
      juno 26 days ago +2

      @Jordan the point of discussion is that they were his friends. it’s messed up in general to make/buy something like that without someone’s consent, but the fact that he knew them is another level of disturbing. i can’t see how anyone could consume that kind of context when it’s literally their friends being exploited. weird is an understatement.
      i don’t expect everyone to understand the depth of human rights and respect, especially if you’re not an adult, but this shows a lot about how someone views other people. there’s some kind of disconnect there that isn’t normal. i’m in school for criminal psychology and this is one of the more disturbing things i’ve seen someone on the internet do.
      whoever made it was definitely an asshole, but they had no connection to the victims and were doing it for money, it’s a lot easier to compartmentalize. i forgot his name already but the mf that got caught is even more disturbed imo because he knew the women, and still didn’t see them as humans that deserve to basic human decency. if he thinks that way of ppl he knows imagine what he thinks of strangers?
      if you’re a well rounded human with empathy and critical thinking skills, this should be horrifying to you. when someone that well liked and respected does something fucked up, it’s always a reminder of how little you truly know about people.

      @juno I mean honestly I wouldn't do it and its a little messed up but not sure it was all that big of a deal. The dude selling the stuff is the actual issue not so much Atrioc looking at it and the reaction against him feels a bit exaggerated since he's the only real face to put to it and people are angry it could happen. Also not sure it was so clear he was there looking up people he knew even if they were on the site, I could easily buy he was going to do a segment about AI/deep fakes soon and went down a weird rabbit hole and got caught with it on his computer because he never closes tabs. Still weird just not sure he needs to quit streaming over it.

    The thing lots of folks don't comprehend is that it doesn't matter that it's fake. What matters is that if a completely unbiased person saw that content, they wouldn't be able to distinguish whether or not it was real, and if they didn't know the person, they'd have absolutely no reason NOT to believe it. Then they have a completely inaccurate perception of that person, the content gets shared again, rinse and repeat a million times.

      @Jealous I think you've unintentionally misinterpreted my comment. If you read my og comment, I agree that making deepfake 🌽 without the persons consent is horrible. Perhaps I wasn't clear enough- I agree that the production and distribution of deepfake 🌽 without the persons consent is immoral (the act of watching however is a different matter.)
      My argument was with the og commenters statement "Being sexualized without consent will never be okay" and only that one statement. The reason I hate this idea is because it's such a broad, absolutist statement that, if it becomes incorporated into the social zeitgeist, makes getting into the nuances of consent and sexualization difficult to do without looking like a creep or potential r@pist as I'm sure you see me.

      @FearMonger cause there is a difference between being attracted to someone (which means you also like their body ect) and making a deep fake of your crush by taking their face and putting it on a porn video to beat to it. Creating fake porn of your crush is not only immoral but imo it should be illegal. They didn’t consent to something that can ruin their life even though they didn’t even film/do/post it

    Really appreciate your language use here because it feels intentional and important; referring to the women he looked at as "colleagues" and "coworkers".
    I think something that seems a bit lost in this discussion due to it being on Twitch is that this is a man who fully looked at porn of the people he works with. In any other "real world" scenario, if your coworker got caught with porn of you and your colleagues (regardless of the gender) on his work computer there would be an immediate understanding about how absolutely disgusting and straight up creepy that is, and how rightfully so in that situation, that colleague would most likely lose their job because of sexual harassment.
    I hope the women who are victims of this really have more support not just from their user base, but from Twitch directly, because this is just unacceptable behavior that's eerily being described as "normative".

    Thank you for your great breakdown of the situation, Charlie. It’s the weirdest energy for people to have such a strong stance against Only Fans creators to also have the take of “it’s not your real body so why do you care?” Seems like some consumers will only enjoy sex work so long as the sex worker can’t consent and/or profit. 🙃 Yikes.

      This. I just read a comment section full of people who dismissed this situation as "it isn't real, so it's okay". The feelings that these streamers have after seeing porn created using their faces without their consent are ABSOLUTELY real. This extends to your family, friends, and colleagues believing you did something you didn't do, which is so defamatory at best and traumatizing at worst.

It’s honestly refreshing to see someone be so blunt and honest about something when it’s about a friend.

    Thanks so much for weighing in on this, Charlie. The only way this sort of thing changes is by men calling out other men on their bad behaviour. There's absolutely nothing that women can do to prevent this from happening or to change those in society who think that this is okay, because those types of men have no empathy. They will choose their own sexual gratification every time and the only thing that will influence their belief that it's totally okay.. and result in actual real-life change.... is when other men call them out on it.

Turns out, it was some other girl that looked similar to me. The guy lied about who sent it. I have no idea why. It is an awful feeling to be judged for sending out sexual content when you never have. It is such a violation. I couldn't imagine being in the situation as the streamers.

    Off topic but relating to deep fakes I remember seeing a video on iFunny where somebody used an AI voice program to copy your (Critikal's) voice to make you say horrible things about killing "n-words," "n-word" babies, and other vile things. I knew immediately it wasn't legit but the voice itself was amazingly convincing with none of those little jitters or awkward pronunciations you usually hear with AI voices.

    I gotta say, as someone who was not aware of this until just now watching this, a sincere thank you for breaking it down. My initial thought was something akin to a drawing or animation, something that's more of a fan-made thing and accredited to the person who made like exists abundantly for fictional characters. Obviously when it's a real person it's different, not arguing that, but at least if it was clearly identified as being made by someone else, not the real person, etc it wouldn't be damning. This deepfake stuff just blows my mind on how people could get behind it and it can and will only cause problems, especially when it's being pawned off as 'leaks' and 'real' holy fucking hell.

      The moral conversation here has nothing to do with AI fakes, nor strangers online who want to watch them of celebrities. No, co-workers shouldn’t be tuning in to that type of content about one another; however I’m free to watch as many Pokimane AI fakes as I want, as someone who doesn’t maintain any business relationships with her. I don’t work with her, she’s a celebrity who’s face is on the internet publicly, and I’m a citizen in the United States of America, and our laws protect the ability to use various technologies as mediums for p*****graphic artwork depicting celebrities WITHOUT needing any consent from the supposed featured subject of such artworks.

    Subbed for this, 100% agree. I heard China has a law that requires watermarking it as a deepfake no matter what content is contained. I agree with this approach as well, as it doesn't detract from the content as a whole - which when used "correctly" can be quite entertaining. It should be illegal everywhere to make deepfake porn; I can however, see a market for those who do not want to make sexual content to deepfake themselves (with proper licensing/consent from the original actors of course). But even that market becomes a problem as it is the crack in the door to a blurred line of who did and did not consent for any particular piece of "content" - so best to just keep it as far away from becoming a legitimate market altogether.
    Real people have killed themselves over leaks and revenge porn, making it that much more scarier if this kind of thing is so readily available and not yet illegal everywhere. It ruins real lives. Get rid of it. Period.

      Just own up to being down horrendous and making questionable choices. I think we can all relate? Don't do it again obviously, get help. I can forgive.

      @ordinary name Ironic that an advanced society heading for the future still relies on the old methods of "adapt or die", instead of trying to come up with a way to prepare its people for that future.

    This is really scary honestly I don't see a good way out of this, and I had a feeling this would be bad, but we should have really seen this coming.
    If we control the technology, then inevitably someone will have control and therefore it's power. If we don't control it, an entire industry could collapse, or the results could pump so much damaging material out to the public that the ramifications will never end.
    Any last bit of trust that anyone had for information on the internet is about to disappear, and I'm not sure what navigating super addicting chaos will do to our minds, especially when we can't even moderate our tech use as it stands right now.
    All of this and then of course we have pockets of society that are rising up to defend all of this and claim that resistance is an outdated way of thinking. We are truly approaching a singularity, we could easily see it all fall apart in our lifetimes.

    This phenomenon is so gross and should probably be treated legally as revenge porn. I don't think we can fully understand the full force of devastating effects this will have even if we rush to regulate it.

    Was just talking about this with my boyfriend. I can’t imagine finding P of myself online without consent, or how it would make me feel. Everyone calling these women sensitive for being in this situation is heartless.
