    I just find it amusing that there are places named Coogee and Wagga Wagga. Are people from Wagga Wagga called Wagga Wagons?
  5. Nah we just call them idiots. :D

    If I was there I would have. Even if I was a random bystander who didnt know you.

    Really, what would/could he do?

    "Officer! Officer! This girl smashed my phone because Im a perv who took some upskirt pics of without her consent!"

    I agree - although, if I was being more thoughtful, I would probably "impound" the phone and hand it over to the nearest police officer or police station, with an explanation and a strong suggestion they prosecute !!

    There also used to bust cheating mates. A friend of your mate/spouse sees you out, and click! Busted!

    +1, just what I was thinking. Or get his name and Cell Phone provider and tell them if they don't cancel his account and black list him you will bring them into court too. It'd take a sharp lawyer to pull it off, but the negative publicity will make them thin about offering camera phones, which are the lamest invention in the world IMO.

    yeah i really should have taken his phone :meh:
    although i wouldn't have bothered to take it to the police station.
    the service provider probably would have blamed the phone makers who would have blamed the guy etc.
    prosecuting would have been an expensive waste of time i guess.

    i wish i had smashed his phone up though.
    i didn't feel seriously violated or anything, i was just damn angry.

    people make a joke out of it, but as someone who's had to deal with a more serious kind of abuse in the past, i don't think it's funny at all :meh:

    what if someone was taking upskirt/revealing pictures of your daughter or son without their knowledge and then jerking off to them and posting them all over the internet.

    There was a sign on the locker room door at the gym I used to be a member of that said "No camera phones allowed."

    I can't imagine someone getting their kicks off of that though..."Hey! Look at this sweaty old guy's nuts. Aren't they sexy?!!"

  16. Yes he was a perve, but smashing his phone isn't the right way to go about it. What if you;d smashed his phone, and he'd gone ape ****?

    You're totally ignorant of this situation. No its not okay, at all, in any way. As a 15 year old still forming sexually and emotionally you cannot possibly understand or comment upon what is right and wrong in this situation.

    You are wrong. You can scream at me until you're blue in the face about how she deserved it and you'll still be wrong.

    If you really want to talk about traditional gender roles, then lets go for it; at the end you'll still be wrong. Just like the guys who use any media to record of women when those women dont want recording, or haven't explicitly stated that they dont mind.

    Upskirt shots with a camera-phone are not ok - they are a violation of the woman.
  20. I never said they weren't, but it's makin it more obvious to perverts if you wear an uber short skirt.
