  1. Why is he a “pervert”? Anyone can be photographed in public in the United States. If he were taking “up skirt” photos (which he was not), THAT would be very different.

  2. The undersides of the woman’s breast are exposed. That is likely to attract attention though obvious and prolonged picture taking is what paparazzi do, not individuals.

  3. If she didn’t want to be photographed (and apparently she LIKES getting photographed), she shouldn’t have dressed like a hooker/stripper.

    Sorry bitch, you’re in PUBLIC. No expectation of privacy.

  4. Dude’s a perv. But come on, this story that you are linking to is giving that woman just want she wants: attention to her insta page.

    She choose to wear that outfit in a public place for precisely one reason: to get looked at.

  5. Yep, no expectation of privacy whatsoever.

    Dress like that, men are going to stare and maybe photograph. Perfectly allowable.

  6. We need more guys out documenting how ridiculous some people dress at airports.

    Can we all pitch in together and get this man a nicer camera?

  7. Thrift store clothing and a flea market suitcase, she is a cheap date for sure.

  8. What…can’t come up with a story about hookers using a Logan Airport hotel? How about an orgy of midgets in an underutilized airport hangar? Maybe a threesome joining the “Mile High Club” with BMIs of more than 35? Those would be real travel stories that a frequent flyer website should cover.

    You’re slipping Gary.

  9. LOL @ all these men in the comments thinking it’s perfectly moral to just take photos of women all the time.

    Creeps.

  10. Seems more like a stunt to draw people to her onlyfans page. Hard to feel any sympathy for her if that is how she dresses in public.

  11. The problem the dude had was that he was trying to be sneaky about it (and failing miserably). If you’re going to do it, go all in. Get the tripod out, and be obvious about it. Carry some model waiver forms on you, so when you get confronted, just hand them out and (retroactively) ask for permission. If they refuse, then agree that any pictures she appears in won’t be published or if they are published, her likeness will be sufficiently distorted to prevent identification.

    As far as it goes, while there’s really no expectation of privacy in public areas, including airports, the airport itself might have some loosely interpreted rules related to security that might cause him problems if someone chooses to escalate the issue.

  12. As @Apple alludes to, there are actually more nuanced laws about photography in public places. Just because you can see something in public does not mean you can photograph it.

  13. @Restil – “…. the airport itself might have some loosely interpreted rules related to security that might cause him problems if someone chooses to escalate the issue.”

    Having worked in the industry for more than two decades at a major U.S. airport, I can tell you that unless the area in question has a safety and security function, or if control of an area is under the auspices of the U.S. Government, prohibition against photography in the truly public spaces of a terminal (concessions, gate areas, baggage claim, ticket counter) does not exist.

    @Apple – “LOL @ all these men in the comments thinking it’s perfectly moral to just take photos of women all the time. Creeps.”

    Can hypocrisy also be immoral?

  14. @P Ness: no, there isn’t. In the us, the first amendment protects your right to take pictures pretty much anywhere you are allowed to be.

    Now, there are a few rules about what you can do with those photos after you’ve taken them. But taking them is constutionally protected.

  15. So Derek Chauvin should have made that girl delete the video of him kneeling on George Floyd?

    Sorry honey, you’re in public where nothing is private.
