This is a really uncomfortable situation I am in, and I have been debating constantly about what I should do for the past couple of days. My younger brother is 4 years younger than me, and we used to be pretty close growing up. Now that I am in college and have moved away we aren’t as close, but we do still talk often.
Well, I came home for the weekend and was bored, so I logged into his computer to play some video games. He wasn’t home and gave me his password beforehand. Right when I logged in I saw that he had a folder named L on his desktop. I know it’s fucked up to invade my brother’s privacy, but my curiosity got to the best of me and I opened it. It was full of porn pictures and I thought no big deal, and was going to exit out. Then I noticed a few of the pictures that looked out of place. They didn’t look like normal, professional porn pictures, but pictures that he took off his phone. I opened them and was completely horrified…
They were pictures of our mom naked. To make things even weirder and creepier, it looked like he took the pictures from underneath my mom’s bathroom door, as she was changing or going to take a shower. I immediately exited out when I realized what the fuck I was looking at. I mean what the FUCK was my brother doing with naked pics of our mom!? I still don’t really know what to think or do about it. I just turned off the computer and haven’t talked or done anything about it since.
I really don’t know if I should just shut up about it and never bring it up, or if I should tell him to delete them asap and yell at him for it. I haven’t told anyone and don’t know who I would. I would never tell my mom because it would horrify her, but I do have older brothers that I’ve been debating to tell. If anyone has any advice on what I should do in this fucked up situation please tell me.
I also really just needed to vent about it and tell someone because it’s eating up my conscious. I am debating whether I should just confront him personally. Whether to scold him or just be a good brother and tell him how wrong this is. Or should I just tell my mom, or get her to find out without her ever knowing I know, so it’s just a personal thing between my mom and little brother. I don’t know and could really use some advice.
