No Reasonable Expectation of Privacy Under Your Skirt

A Georgia teacher is under investigation for photographing his female students without their knowledge and posting the results to the Reddit “creepshots” thread.

Which is only right, as this is obviously very disturbing and illegal behavior. Even more disturbing, though, is Reddit’s refusal to shut down the thread entirely:

People constantly have their pictures taken, without their consent, and used in publications without their knowledge. When you are outside and in public space, you do not have a reasonable expectation of privacy.

Laws probably vary from state to state and city to city, but it seems only reasonable that people should have the expectation of privacy under their clothes. Reddit need not cross the boundary into censorship in order to acknowledge that.
