    Check out tumblr, photoblogger, or any one of those sites, and there are plenty of candids of people on there that people have taken of others... like guys working out that the gym, hot women on the bus/train, etc. Privacy has changed in the past 15 years. 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.

    If no... then it's not fair to go after people for privacy invasion even if we find their behavior creepy.
    That is really a part of my point. 30 years ago, the vast majority of people would not even have considered this to be acceptable behavior. We would not be having this discussion.

    My buddy Scott would never be caught in a kilt. Of course, he's half German.

    I was attending a Jethro Tull concert many years ago and guitarist Martin Barre was wearing a kilt. Ian Anderson pretended to lift it up with his flute and then dropped down on his knee for a peek

    he then turned to the audience and said

    IT WAS GRUESOME

    and it GREW SOME MORE!!

    30 years ago people didn't have cameras that fit in the palm of their hand.

    If you're trying work the culture angle, I can sympathize with that... our culture is so saturated with sexual imagery yet is so sexually repressed, and it causes people to engage in all sorts of weird behaviors.

    The angle I'm looking at is freedom vs. more laws. Even if we make upskirting illegal, it's not going to stop it. Police aren't going to go out chasing 20-somethings for upskirting women. I don't think women wearing skirts need special protections.

    Men makes the laws. I assume it was men who decided these kinds of pictures were legal.

    Would female judges make that call?
    Didn't you read the article you posted? A female judge did make that call.

    she probably wears only trousers. people who take such pictures probably never see what's really under everything.

    Stop. You're screwing with her intense misandry when you do that.

    She needs to hate men right now. In a few, you can bring out the court-appointed doll and find out where he touched her.

    I think it's sick too- I just don't think that people take it as seriously as they used to.
