For the “No, it’s not a Creepshot” side, I can see the following arguments:
- The taking and the publishing of the photo obviously weren’t motivated by lust but by amazement at what a clueless and low-class place America often is. If we can’t make and share humorous observations about the life around us, what’s the point of getting out of bed in the morning?
- The woman’s face can’t be seen, so who cares if her undies and more are being put on public display?
And for the “Yes, it’s a Creepshot” side:
- Yoga pants! Transparency! Thong! Bra! And the pic was obviously sneaked! Permission was almost certainly not requested! If those aren’t markers of an authentic Creepshot, what is?
- How can we know for sure that the person who snapped and published the pic wasn’t motivated by lust? Weirder things have been heard of than someone who gets off on sanitary napkins. Perhaps we’d be better off condemning him/her right off the bat, because these prissy days it’s best not to take any chances.
Are there additional factors I’m overlooking? And where do you come down on the crucial “Is it a Creepshot or not?” question in this case? FWIW, my own deep thoughts don’t go a lot further than, “Hey, when life presents you with something like this, how can you not sneak and share a shot of it?”
