Legislating Morality? Revenge Porn

This one sounds like texting while driving laws to me. Should that be illegal under distractive diving laws? Seems redundant.
I would think something else should be illegal before we get to this point.

Revenge porn is when people post naked or compromising photos of their exes after bitter breakups.

Sounds like a good idea on the surface.

These naked pictures that show up on the internet hurt a lot of people. From embarrassment, job loss, relationships ruined, all in all not a pleasant thing to go thru.

But, is it really the government’s job to reign this in? What about personal responsibility? Or moral decency.

What these “laws” are proposing more or less is legislating morality, and there are obvious examples and arguments against doing that.
