Sneaky Upskirt Vajayjay Pics Are Now Totally Legal in Georgia

Oopsie! The Bible Thumpers in Georgia were so busy “protecting women and children” from non-existent boogeymen in bathrooms, they completely failed and missed an actual REAL and credible threat that is not new and has been growing around the country. According to their state law, it is not illegal for a pervert to sneak a camera under a lady’s skirt and snap as many pictures as he wants. Porn is a national health crisis, but sneaky pics of unsuspecting lady vajayjays? Eh, no big Nathan Deal…amiright?

A divided Georgia Court of Appeals this month tossed out the conviction of former grocery store employee Brandon Lee Gary, who recorded videos up a woman’s skirt — known as “upskirting” — while she shopped. The 6-3 majority opinion said Gary’s behavior, while reprehensible, doesn’t violate the state’s invasion of privacy law, under which he was prosecuted.

In a ruling issued July 15, Judge Elizabeth Branch said it is “regrettable that no law currently exists which criminalizes Gary’s reprehensible conduct.”

“Unfortunately, there is a gap in Georgia’s criminal statutory scheme, in that our law does not reach all of the disturbing conduct that has been made possible by ever-advancing technology.” source

This seems like such a great big DUH, but I swear it’s actually true. The problem here is the definition of  what “place” where one can expect to have a reasonable expectation of privacy. I shit you not, a bathroom is considered protected, but UP YOUR SKIRT while you are walking around in public is not.




While multiple states have passed more specific laws to close this loophole, Georgia was a bit distracted by the threat of losing millions of dollars in business for the right to discriminate against LGBTQ people. You know, because priorities!

I decided to dust off my Bible and see what Jesus has to say about these issues.

On the subject of bathroom usage: <crickets>

On the subject of lust: This is one of the Seven Deadly Sins. In fact, there are too many verses covering this for me to list here, but let’s just say it’s REALLY A BAD THING. If you want to legislate the Bible, it absolutely could not be more specific on this subject unless it came right out and said, “Verily I say unto you, make thee a law against using thy camera phone to be a lustful and despicable pervert by taking inappropriate photographs uppeth the skirts of females. For this thy will go directly to hell!”

I’m not a lawyer, but I have to admit I am fucking speechless that my body is not always considered an area where I have complete and total say so no matter where I am or what I am doing. And even worse news for Georgia? Mississippi beat your asses on this one. On April 23, 2015, the most ass-backwards state in the country signed a voyeurism bill into law.

Dear Georgia, Y’all need to get your shit together and actually do something substantive to protect women, and if that means writing a specific law to make the space under their skirts private, do it yesterday.
