Remember folks: if you commit a sex crime (surreptitious photography, by definition) by filming people in the bathroom without their knowledge ahead of time, or without their consent during (as was clearly evidenced by the event in question!), you’re gonna be banned for a week. But you WILL get to come back with a bunch of fanfare and production values increased.

But, if you ever, EVER show as much skin as a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, you will be struck down with a wrathful hand.

To all the incels that report her because you think it’s funny, or that women should be punished for having sexual (biologically speaking) characteristics that you are unable to divorce from your own stunted and frustrated sexuality, you’re a piece of shit.

And if you’re a parent who doesn’t want their kid to see this material? Police them better. It’s been brought up in court cases for decades, and it always falls on personal responsibility.

She is not shoving her naked chest in your face. But you are going into her clearly advertised and warned location to harass.
