Secret FB groups? Wow, I’m more out of the loop than I thought. 🙂 As far as the collages go, having not seen them, I think I’m with you in the “this is uncomfortable to look at” realm. Not sure if it’s pornography in the strictest sense, but certainly distasteful. And just to expand on your example, men don’t have to cut up photos and make collages of women’s bodies because media already does it for them. How many times have you seen an ad, for, well, any product marketed to men, with an image of some part of a woman’s body, with the head/arms/whatever, not visible. Not that that makes what this woman did to the Outlander images any less creepy. Both are wrong. If I were you I’d post a comment sharing your discomfort. If that person can post those images you can post a reply. I would expect a lot of people would share your feelings. If you don’t speak up, that person will assume that what she’s doing is fine.
