    Gipper. Listen to me carefully. Because if you seriously believe what you just wrote, you could be endangering your life.

    Why? Because I know a LOT of parents that, if some creepo EVER tried to upskirt their underage daughter, the right to not just keep but bear arms would be swiftly and effectively used.

    A hidden look at panties justifying murder. Gee, you were SO close to not looking foolish too.

    Also, my life wouldn't be in danger - since I don't and wouldn't do it.

    Surely you are not somehow suggesting that a parent's natural and normal reaction to a threat of their children is out of line? I feel that I know far too much about human behavior, particularly that of parents, to take this bait. What Gipper, and possibly you, do not understand is that in every single mammal species that is near or at the top of the food chain, you don't mess with the young ones. Period. Parents, and not just human parents, are evolutionarily hardwired to deal with any kind of threat to their children in the manner necessary.

    Let me ask you something. Do you believe people should be allowed to walk around without any clothes on in public if they want to?

    Oh, no, I'm not saying a reaction to having one's child embarrassed isn't natural. I'm saying that shooting the person who did it is the act of a crazy person. Absolutely loony-tunes.

    Most of it is just talk. I wish I had a nickel for every parent who has said stuff like this. These things happen often yet you pretty much never hear of anybody actually taking said retailiation.
    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.

    Hold it. You're gonna condone an act of pedophilia but not murder? I invite the legal experts around here to clarify--if a parent has clear reason to believe that his or her child's safety is in imminent danger, then he or she has the legal right to use force to protect the child. I offer "upshirting" as a prime qualifier of this--and remember, since I am offering a defense to a charge of homicide, my burden of proof is significantly lower than you might think.

    Not "embarrassed." VIOLATED. Sexual harassment or assault does not have to involve penetration or even physical contact.

    Christ, Maggie. I'm shocked that you, of all people, would downplay this so much. I would have thought you would have been one of the first to side against a sexual act against a minor.

    Our society is too uptight for that to happen any time soon. Why does Europe not have nearly as much of a problem with social nudity as we Americans do?

    Well, here we have a court saying it's not even against the LAW. And here we have you saying a parent is within his right to shoot the guy. No, it's just not that big a deal. Would I report him? Would I try to get him prosecuted if I could? Yes. And yes. I would downplay the incident with my daughter and not make the biggest issue in the world over it. And I certainly wouldn't even contemplate taking someone's life over such a ridiculous thing as that.

    Hell, a Peeping Tom is worse, in my opinion. You might get away with shooting him right at the time claiming you were in fear of your daughter's life . . . but if you saw him the next day and blew him away? Well, you've just lost your daughter a father. 'Cause your ass is going to be in jail.

    Lordy.
