I have a dream that all women will forever look like swimsuit models, go commando, and wear short skirts.

it's nice to want things.

Oh man, why did I never think of this genius plan! But seriously dude, that's pretty weird... and you can go downtown in just about any city and actually grab the titters for a fiver.

i think your alternative will involve a substantial decrease in quality. but, since you used words for body and currency that I have never heard before, I assume quality is not the issue.

While creepy as fark I don't see what's illegal about taking photos in a public place.  It probably should be given the annoyance of the papparazzi but the whole land of the free thing gets in the way.

He's guilty of not respecting a cops authority. He'd be home scott free if he'd stood his ground and told the park police to go fark themselves and refused a search or to answer any questions.

Well my good sir, I was inferring that those unfortunate souls unable to procure a lady friend and who have to resort to taking pictures at the Lincoln Memorial, would be better served by heading down to their local strip joint and paying (Candy|Trish|Fox) instead.

perchance your local gentlemen's club would suffice.

but, in serious, these voyeur types probably get off on the notion that either their presence is unknown, or they are somehow defiling something. so, the stripper probably wouldn't work for the voyeur.  there's not too much to defile.

Probably depends on how visible everything is - otherwise papparazzi would be arrested for all the upskirt shots they get.  Their defense is that it was "in public".  This guy was charged with "voyeurism" - which probably has a "for the purpose of sexual arousal" someplace in it, and negates any "in public" arguments.

1.) Get a better camera.
2.) Take shots of the entire memorial.
3.) Photoshop out the "extra scenery" later.

/If you are going to do it, do it properly.

I would call this guy a disgusting pervert but he would probably shame me with candid snaps of me sniffing the steps with my pants around my ankles.

I have a dream that women will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their panties, but by the content of their character.
 
2013-09-06 05:53:37 PM
I honestly don't understand the legal basis for the charges here... in a bathroom, you have a reasonable expectation to privacy. In your home, you have a reasonable expectation to privacy. In public, when you sit on some stairs and don't cross your legs tight enough, you do not have a reasonable expectation to privacy.

Is the dude a creeper? For sure. Did he do anything illegal? Not bloody likely.

/He'll take a plea bargain though, that's what the legal system is designed to intimidate you into doing.

I'd rather take photos of women's faces, myself.

Do you? I mean, it's one thing if someone is forcibly removing or pulling up your clothing, but according to this article this guy was just taking pictures of stuff that was already out there. Is the guy a creepy lecherous pervert? Absolutely, but that shouldn't be a crime in and of itself.

Hey we only judge them when they flaunt it for the world to see. Dress appropriately or take certain precautions based on your chosen attire and you will usually have little problem with men does thing like this.
 
2013-09-06 05:56:03 PM
Perhaps the women could just... you know... get over it? Or maybe get real fat so no one wants to appreciate their looks. Or maybe don't wear skirts? Seriously, just get over it.

Not for nothing but there are some women out there who don't mind giving a little flash every now and again. I was once standing somewhere (it was my job at the time so I wasn't being creepy) where it was a necessity for anyone to get themselves into a "Compromising" position as far as a panty flash goes and more than once I got a quick grin when they saw me standing there.

Ladies, when you visit a submarine and there's a big warning with a full scale mockup of a watertight door that you "Will" have to step through several times think about what you are wearing.

/dozens of panty flashes during the summer
//commando may or may not have been involved as well

I was paddling around in one of those paddle boats in the Tidal Basin, and I saw a guy with a camera and a chick, obviously doing posed porn shots (she was wearing a miniskirt with nothing under, and flipping it up for the photos). I paddled closer to get a better look, but unfortunately, they saw me and quit shooting.

/CSB
//Does that make me a voyeur, to want to watch people making commercial porn? I guess more of a cheapskate.
 
2013-09-06 06:14:41 PM
Wait a minute.  Why weren't those broads arrested for exposing themselves in public?  If they keep their "crotches and buttocks" covered, no pictures.  They were asking for it.

I don't know what city you're in but if strippers there charge $5 I would have to say you better bring a lot of eye bleach with you and lots and lots of commercial soap!

U.S. Park Police have charged a Springfield man after he allegedly used a camera with a telephoto lens to shoot "upskirt" photos of women sitting on the famous steps leading up to the memorial.

Shame on you! Don't you realize that these women have been victimized by being objectivized and commodified by the male gaze, and furthermore it's been recorded on SD cards in a form that can be shared with other men who don't have the courage to victimize women themselves. In fact these women are even robbed of their humanity because "traditionally" upskirts don't feature faces: these fascistic perverts might as well be photographing Real DollsTM !!1!

"OMG! That's me! I was wearing John's 'tighty whiteys' because the airline misplaced my luggage. There, see? That's the mole on my thigh!"

"But he clipped out everything except navel-to-knees: nobody would know it's you unless you tell them."

"That's what YOU think, mom. Never mind, let's change the subject. Is there more pasta salad?"

I think the situation is analogous to guys who prefer watching porn done by amateurs instead of professionals. The amateur stuff is considered more real and therefore more exciting.
