    Upskirt is the stupidest thing on the planet, next to liberalism.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    So people are saying there should be a law against taking photos of peoples undies in public?

    Someone should be arrested for this photo!

    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Please don't try to tell me that's the same things as an "upskirt" photo.

    Please tell me you're not serious.

    I suppose then, you have no problem with some guy taking a picture of your woman's snatch and putting it online for the world to see?


    To me at least....this is an acceptable reason to inflict physical harm on Uncle Pervy...and use his ass as a case for his phone.

    The only argument is if you tried for some "public decency", but that's a slippery slope.
    It's an invasion of privacy. Like ChrisL said - much like a peeping tom scenario.

    Just saying. It may not be so simple to pin this down.
    Not the same thing and you know it.

Everyone has a smart phone with a camera now.

    This is the price of freedom. You don't get to tell people they can't upskirt you when there might be any number of opportunities for them to do it, even self-created ones. You are responsible for protecting your own privacy. There shouldn't be laws to do it for you.

    Taking pictures of people from ten feet away is hardly the same thing as walking right up to somebody and sticking a camera directly under their crotch or behind and purposefully taking a picture of whatever might be under their clothing.

    IT'S NOT THE SAME THING.

    Taking pictures inside a locker room shower, or inside a toilet stall is not the same thing as taking them out in the wide open.

    A security camera on the outside of a building, or inside a business, is not the same thing as a hidden camera inside a bathroom.

    Some of you people are trying to move the goal posts to ridiculous places to make a bizarre point.

    When a superstar like Anne Hathaway (I really don't like her by the way) wears a micro-mini skirt with no underwear and gets out of a limo in front of dozens of photographers she knows there's a great chance somebody is going to get a beaver shot.

    When "Miss Nobody" is just trying to get her grocery shopping done, or just trying to get home from work, having a cell phone camera stuck up under her clothing to get a beaver shot she's a victim.

    Apparently this just doesn't penetrate - there is no PRIVACY in a PUBLIC setting.

    No nudity, no violation. Everything else is just indignant, whiny opinion and outrage.
