    Good point, but it's really not about the people who are "putting it out there" so to speak, but when a man sneaks up on an unsuspecting woman or CHILD and takes a picture up under her dress/skirt. It's just disgusting and perverted. What is wrong with you guys anyway? J/K!

    Yeah I give ya that, babe. If there is any appeal, it goes by the wayside when she's packing and it's 4 degrees outside.

    Yeah, but that IS illegal in Massachusetts.

    So a guy comes up behind me and starts taking pictures under my skirt. What is my recourse? I mean, legally, there is absolutely nothing I could do about it. Does this mean I have to tolerate this and do nothing? Bullcrap! I'm going to go to jail I guess.

    Might I suggest you wear a wrap around your waist then? Any woman who thinks that bikini aren't license to gawk at tits and taint has some real "country bumpkin" in them.

    I don't think smoking is "ok" either. Maybe we should make it to where if you light up, you get locked up.
    Well in MA, it is illegal to distribute photography of children in a state of nudity. If you see a picture of a female online with only her legs, underwear, and shirt showing, how do you prove or disprove it was a minor?

    Section 29A. (a) Whoever, either with knowledge that a person is a child under eighteen years of age or while in possession of such facts that he should have reason to know that such person is a child under eighteen years of age, and with lascivious intent, hires, coerces, solicits or entices, employs, procures, uses, causes, encourages, or knowingly permits such child to pose or be exhibited in a state of nudity, for the purpose of representation or reproduction in any visual material, shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for a term of not less than ten nor more than twenty years, or by a fine of not less than ten thousand nor more than fifty thousand dollars, or by both such fine and imprisonment.

    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Women in other countries go to beaches with breasts exposed, and the men there aren't perverts like American men (or so I've been told by multiple, multiple people). American men have some kind of weird obsession with breaking women down into specific "body parts" and have a difficult time NOT objectifying a woman as a sexual thing. It's hot at the beach, and just because you are wearing a bathing suit does not mean you want men gawking at your crotch area. It's just creepy.

    It's simple. They cannot. I'm sure this little problem will get cleared up soon enough. It's just ridiculous to suggest that this is "okay" in any way, and it's simply a matter of updating some laws, I'm sure.

    The problem is how would you write the law? I have a right to capture images in the public domain, and it trumps your right to not be embarrassed. But embarrassment doesn't quite cover it, does it? An up skirt shot goes a little further than simple embarrassment. But where do we draw the line between that and being taken advantage of? Without diminishing my photo journalistic rights?

    But hey - good luck in your quest to make everything you don't like illegal.
    I am aware this is "How Law Works"....we are discussing the implications of it. That you completely avoided answering my questions and instead decided to sideline the entire core concept in preference of trying to hijack this into a debate about verbal insult makes it likely you would not be okay with having a female you care about invaded in this way.

    From this, I will assume you do not support strangers taking upskirt pictures of women.

    Feel free to correct my assumption if required.
