Information and consent

(p.128) Chapter 5 Information and consent
Sexting Panic

Amy Adele Hasinoff

University of Illinois Press

This chapter considers the idea that personal information is impossible to control and how this assumption operates in discussions about sexting. It argues that current models of privacy and information flows online do not adequately account for consent and instead stresses the need for better policies and a more robust conversation about social norms of privacy online. Building on feminist theories of sexual consent and challenging the view that all information should be free, the chapter proposes a framework for privacy that requires explicit consent for the circulation of any private information. It explains how thinking about consent in the circulation of media leads to a range of alternative responses to privacy violations. It also maintains that privacy should be seen as context-dependent, not technology-or format-dependent.
