    WHAT???? How can upskirt photo taking NOT be an invasion of privacy?????
    I don't get how being in your panties isn't 'partially nude' (because that's what the photo is of)

    Just - none of this makes sense.

    I think they could have ruled 'guilty' and it wouldn't have failed in appellate court, they just didn't want to interpret the law in a way in which it would actually protect someone. Never before was it ever ruled 'okay' to look up skirts - it's just gross behavior and shouldn't be encouraged.

    Our country is just so in the toilet it's ridiculous.

    The law was describing a state of dress - nude, partially nude, whatever - both of which, I'm sure, are illegal. Would you want someone wearing a skirt or dress to be classified as "partially nude", which also means breaking the law?


    And what's your (legal) view about women who wear skirts and intentionally show their panties in various ways? Should they be arrested? Is it OK to take a pic of them? Exactly where do you draw the line?

    This is a wind up, yeah? If you cannot tell the difference between standing up and taking a photo of a girly getting flirty and a gluing a camera to your shoe and sliding it under a woman's skirt you are not adult.

    On the contrary, I'd say if you feel otherwise then you're not the adult. This is about legality, not morality. Adults deal with laws and they have to apply equally in virtually every situation. You can't put

    "It's illegal to take a picture of a woman's underwear if she's wearing a skirt UNLESS she's acting flirty, the it's OK"

    in a law book.

    Replace flirty with flashing and you are there.

    I think the deeper question is: Should laws be strictly defined, or should laws be vague and subject to interpretation?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    In your mind, is "upskirt photography" easy to define, or is it vague and subject to interpretation?

    Ah yeah - you're right.

    But still - there has to be something that alreayd exists which should stand to protect women from such behavior. What kind of a society can't punish someone for being just so sleazy? You know - a bit of frustration here. Does everything need explicit wording or something?

    A law that says "You have a right to privacy" is vague and subject to interpretation.

    A law that says "Up-skirt photography is illegal" is defined and easily understood.

    Of the two, which would you rather have to rely on?
