    So a dude sticking a cell phone up under the skirt of your wife or daughter isn't doing anything that should be illegal?

    There's nothing "special" to be seen up under there?

    A "wedgie" can be pretty revealing.
    Thongs can be pretty revealing.
    Some panties are pretty sheer.

    It's an invasion of privacy.

    No, not really. It's becoming a world where essentially anything is acceptable, and no matter what you do, it will be justified and excused by someone, for some reason. It's a me me me world these days. Wanna look up my skirt? Why of course. Go ahead. It's only following your natural impulse.
    If women were openly quite so brazen, and the shoe were on the other foot, would you be saying it's a women's world these days too?

    Only because the legal system hasn't caught up with technology yet.

    I was simply assuming you were being sarcastic.

    Upskirting violates a social standard but it's hardly threatening, victimizing, or indecent if they're photographing a clothed body part. I mean, if a woman wears a tight top and you can see her nipples, and you photograph her boobs, doe she get to charge with you invasion of privacy? What about men who wear tight clothes and you can see their bulge? Just because the clothed part is underneath a skirt doesn't make it any less clothed.

    Have you ever looked up in a shopping mall to the people walking on the floor above you? There's lots of skirts you could see up, if you really tried. Do those women have a right to "privacy"? You can't legally tell someone not to look.

    I've been to nude beaches and there's nothing that really shocks me, which is why I guess this doesn't matter to me. If they photographed my underwear up my skirt and they actually get off on that then they're lucky to have such simple-minded pleasures because as far as I'm concerned a photo of someone's camel toe is nothing special. AFAIK it's mostly young guys in their 20s doing upskirting and it's just a stupid prank to them. Maybe if they grow up they'll some day get to see a bare vag attached to a woman who actually wants to provide it to them. For now they're stuck playing their virginal games.

    It's a pretty scuzzy thing to do, but I can understand why the ruling is what it is. Do we arrest women who take their toddlers to a public pool in revealing bathing suits?

    Can't really agree. The law was written in such a way that this was not illegal.

    Or - did you want judges making laws? I thought you were against that, but I could be wrong.
