We can all thank the strict constitutionalists for this wonderful ruling. Apparently since there isn't a law which expressly prohibits taking pictures up women's skirts while they are walking around in a public place it is now completely legal to do it in Georgia. In other news, Georgia has now become the number one tourist destination for Japanese businessmen.

Fraternities have been using the loophole that you can't expect privacey under a skirt forever.

It's such a grey area what with mini dresses, going commando under short skirts, open stair cases, wind blown clothing, and balconies ... I'm sure someone will try to skirt the issue.

It's not exactly revolutionary that criminal laws shouldn't be inferred or drawn from anywhere other than a clear code.

If there isn't an applicable law then pass one but everyone should dislike the idea of criminal law being applied retrospectively.

Here in Thailand as far as I can tell [which isn't that far, since I don't peer up skirts] women have solved this "problem" by wearing shorts under all skirts.

It is a little bizarre given that the same woman in a bikini would be okay but wrap a skirt around the bikini and looking under that skirt becomes illegal.

I mean it's still creepy and sexist (but also partially hard wired into male genetics like glancing at cleavage).

I'm sure the legislature will ad dress the issue tho

I would have thought all the ladyboys in Thailand would be incentive enough to not take pictures up women's skirts.

Not the same thing at all. If a person wears a bikini in public, they're ok with being seen in a bikini.

Or do you suppose that since it's ok to see see strippers naked when they are on stage, it's also ok to look at them naked by peeking in their bedroom window?

Its not being nude that matters, its filming/looking up the skirt. Some bikinis cover less than many undergarments.

But mainly my post was for the dress pun.
