Upskirting, Cameras on Shoes, Peeping Tom Tech

Zandria at BlogHer posted on another form of invasion of privacy and Peeping Tom perversion weeks ago called upskirting. You can read her post here about men who angle cameras so they can look up women's skirts at their panties and then post the photos online.

CNN recently posted a video about a man who's confessed to sticking his shoe with a camera attached under dressing room doors at a surf shop. He was watching women try on bikinis. The man stuck the camera in the tongue of his shoe.

Dude, I hope you get some help. What is this anyway? Too poor to pay a hooker to undress for you or is it a control issue, capturing a naked woman without her knowledge?
Peeping tom (Voyeurism): Peeping tom (voyeurism) is a disorder that involves achieving sexual arousal by observing an unsuspecting and non-consenting person who is undressing or unclothed, and/or engaged in sexual activity. This behavior may conclude with masturbation by the voyeur. The voyeur does not seek sexual contact with the person he is observing. Other names for this behavior are "peeping" or "peeping Tom." (Medterms.com)
Books have been written and movies made about the nature of the voyeur. There's even research that indicates with television and now the Net, we've become a Voyeur Nation, but cameras on shoes, peeping up women's skirts, looking through folks' bedroom windows? I think that's a little different from lurking on websites.

This is wrong on so many levels.

Wait a minute....someone has the audacity to classify Peeping Tom behavior as a disorder for a man who:
1. Has no life to appreciate
2. Is such a LOSER on so many levels
3. Entertains his pitiful life by placing a hidden camera in his shoe to watch women dress

Acutally calling a fool like this a man is an insult to real men.)

Calling this a "disorder" leaves me with the thinking that the poor guy is afflicted with a condition requiring some type of treatment. Post the fool's picture in retail businesses where he lives, I guarantee he won't display the behavior of his "disorder"

This course of treatment is known as shame and embarrassment. It has been proven to make even fools come correct.

Sometimes certain advances in technology are just scary. Having a camera is at least more obvious and you're more likely to be able to catch them in the act. But a shoe camera!!!!!
