Just because something is legal doesn’t mean you should do it.

Take alcohol, for instance. Sure, the state says it’s fine for you to drink if you want, but we all know the numerous, numerous, numerous negative repercussions it brings about.

You probably shouldn’t.

And you DEFINITELY, ABSOLUTELY, 100 PERCENT SHOULD NOT (got it?) do what a Georgia court said isn’t a crime.

Taking upskirt photos of women in public. That’s right, a court in Georgia in 2016 said: “No, no, it’s cool. You dudes can perv out all you want.”

From CBS:

Due to a technicality, the Georgia Court of Appeals recently ruled invasion of privacy laws in Georgia do not include sneaking a photo up a woman’s skirt in public.

If it is behind closed doors, like a dressing room, bathroom stall, the law protects against it, but if the same type of picture is taken in a supermarket or on the sidewalk, it is legal.

The judges, in a case stemming from Macon, Georgia, said basically that the letter of the law didn’t ban it, so it isn’t illegal.

True! Also a fucking cop out.

In their 6-3 opinion the judges said the flaws are in the wording of the law, and it’s up to state lawmakers to fix it.

Wow. Okay. And I thought I was lazy.

State lawmakers said they would try to fix the loophole, but the legislature’s next session doesn’t begin until the spring.
