This post is to create a place for comments for those who wish to share their experiences as cheerleaders, dancers or others about wearing short skirts and those skirts flying up at times, either due to wind, dancing, walking, running or similar things. I am involved in a lawsuit against the city of Seattle re their anti-voyeurism law. I believe that there are gals who wear skirts that fly up due to wind, walking, running or other similar recreational or athletic activities. Although it may be said that they have covered their butt and panties with clothing, their butt and panties became temporarily visible or were visible from certain points of view. Perhaps their butt and panties were partly covered and partly uncovered . . . perhaps they were covered from some points of view and exposed from other points of view.
The reason for my lawsuit is not to encourage voyeurism, but to ensure that any anti-voyeurism laws are only used when there is a violation of a reasonable expectation of privacy.
Please post only what is truthful and avoid embarrassing a school or team. No names of schools needed . . . No locations needed if you would feel uncomfortable mentioning that, but a county or state would be nice, if possible. If you were not a cheerleader or a dancer and wish to contribute, please feel free to do so. For privacy reasons, you have the option of using no last name or an initial or whatever you would be comfortable writing . . . However, first and last name is preferable, if possible.
If you were a cheerleader and if you walked outside of school property to and from home or a bus stop or a car or bus or a hotel or any other place than school property, and if and when your skirt flew up, that story would be helpful . . . You could also generalize and let us know the kind of things that would happen in these cases.
If by chance you sat on a ledge or a counter in such a way that others could see some of your butt or panties simply by passing by . . . or if by lying face down others would often see your panties those are helpful things to include. If you experienced nipslips or panty slips at times, that is also helpful.
The Seattle Municipal Code says that if a person has covered an “intimate area” such as butt or panties and if you lack her or his permission to photograph her or that area, it is illegal to photograph her or him or that area. It does not have as an element of the crime that the photo be a violation of a reasonable expectation of privacy. (The state of Washington law does, however.)
Here is some of the Seattle Municipal Code . . .
A person is guilty of Voyeurism in a Public Place if he or she intentionally records or transmits an image of another person’s intimate areas covered by clothing and the image is taken while that person is in a public place and without that person’s consent.
The way that intimate areas are defined, that would include butt, panties and brastraps . . . intimate areas per the code include all or part of the butt and they include items or parts of items of underwear which had been covered with clothing . . .
