    It may not be illegal but it is immoral.

    So a woman riding the Boston MTA has no reasonable expectation that her privacy will not be invaded simply because she is wearing a skirt or dress??

    I knew Massachusetts is mostly insane, but that's really out there.

    If a feller took a picture up madre's skirt he have a photo of a lifetime. He'd have himself a picture of the gun that shot him. The last thing he'd hear would be, "How do I chamber another round in this thing?" :thumbs:

    I knew someone (unfortunately) who went to jail for attacking a string of women. He told the police that he specifically targeted women in skirts because they were easier targets - no pants to fight through, made the process fast and less struggle.

    That was about the time I gave up my "skirts only" preference for my family...it's pathetic that something as simple as an attempt to dress modest makes a person a target for criminals.

    There is actually clothing out there designed to "lock." It's made of fabric, but the fabric is "dialed" to tighten and only the person wearing it knows where the dial clicks to and the fabric cannot be torn or cut.

    So will I....

    ....wear pants ... and I know a few Scottish men who are now wearing pants too! :laugh:

    Actually, my wife has always wore pants, under her skirts and dresses. To be honest, I have not seen my wife in a skirt or dress in all 34 years of marriage. She was born and raised on a Nebraska farm, and just never adjusted to wearing anything but jeans and pants!

    This is such a stupid, immoral [thanks Rev] decision! But, hey, nothing surprises me any longer! Does it surprise you? :BangHead:

    The ruling has nothing to do with it. Many skirts are just immoral as is the one who wears it.

    Most kilt wearers (male) prefer "A Natural" if truth be known. :smilewinkgrin:

    The law was created, voted in both houses and the Governor signed it in two days.

    Well, thank goodness. That first judge (and a woman, to boot) who said a woman has no expectation of privacy under her clothes and has to be nude or partially nude before she can complain of someone snapping a picture of her private area(s) is a fruitcake.

    As someone in the above link has stated, the fear is that someone will take a picture up or down your clothes and you won't know it until your crotch is all over the internet.

    And they can do that surreptitiously no matter WHAT the length of the skirt nor height of the collar.

    Probably a liberal. That is what liberalism does to the brain.
