The good news is that YouTube has pulled an account belonging to “John Zippy,” a man who was surreptiously filming women’s legs on the subway through a camera placed inside a Starbucks cup and posting the videos online.
The bad news is the YouTube channel “New York Subway Girls” had 35 videos posted on it before it was yanked, featuring 102 women whose body parts were being filmed without their consent. Gross. And the New York Police Department is unable do anything about the vids — unless a woman filmed specifically complains about sexual harassment — because filming in public is not illegal.

On Thursday night, I had what seemed like a pretty good first date. By Friday lunchtime, any chance of a romance between that guy and I had fallen spectacularly to pieces.
I wrote about what went down in a post called “An Open Letter To The Guy Who Called Me ‘Crazy.’” I’ve been pretty thrilled by its reception, particularly all the messages from women who’ve said they totally relate to what happened with Mean Crazy Bitch Guy. However, something in the comment thread has caught my eye: a (new) commenter penned a lengthy comment insinuating Mean Crazy Bitch Guy was actually the victim in the entire scenario and that he lashed out and called me horrible names because he “[felt] creep shamed.”
“Creep shamed”? I thought. I know that term from somewhere. Where is it …? Oh, right, it’s a “men’s rights activist” term. But I wanted to know more. Keep reading »
You certainly don’t hire writer/director/auteur Harmony Korine to do “normal” stuff. In fact, Korine probably hasn’t been acquainted with “normal” for quite some time. So it’s no surprise that his new short film “Snowballs,” made for Proenza Schouler’s Spring 2012 collection, is pretty batcrackers. While there’s nothing overtly NSFW about it, it is a touch creepy and pervy, with two models playing mute, costumed “trouble twins” who encounter a rather disturbing old man character with “magic” fingers. It’ll probably make you feel icky inside.
I love the feminist
sentiment espoused in this “Dear Woman” video by what seems to be a spirituality-based group called Conscious Men … but can we talk about how creepy
these guys are? What’s with the music? The vacant intonation of voice? The cold stares? It’s just bizarre. But hey, thanks, men: I accept your apologies.

What sort of man sews a quilt from 58 pairs of women’s panties
? Louis Garrett of Missouri, that’s who. With his hoary beard, tattoo across his forehead, and wife beater tank, he’s a Creepy McCreeperson sent from Central Casting.
Louis only wants women’s panties made from rayon, acetate, and silk for his panty quilt — “no polyester, I don’t want none of them cheap, dollar store, not sexy farm girl panties. I want classy!”
Classy indeed. Just like Louis himself. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
We’ve heard of trying to maintain young skin, but this is a little ridiculous, don’t you think?? [Homotography] Keep reading »
That’s not just a tacky sculpture of a woman with no nipples—that’s a vintage ad for an actual phone! I love how this redheaded lady is buck naked except for the gold leaves covering up her lady bits to preserve her modesty. To see a full-sized (NSFW) pic, click after the jump… Keep reading »
Poor Erin Andrews: some creep filmed the ESPN reporter — without her permission — naked in a hotel room and circulated the pervy vid on the Internet. The video, which has been pulled offline by many sites, may have been shot with a handheld camera because it allegedly moves back and forth across the room, following Andrews as she walks around. Ew.
Apparently investigators don’t even know which hotel Andrews stayed in at the time of the taping, which makes the likelihood of catching this peeping Tom close to zero. But even suckier is ABC’s claim that only 19 states have laws banning surreptitiously taping someone. [ABC News]
Reading comments on news articles about Andrews’ peeping Tom nightmare is not for the faint of heart. Some people are rating Andrews’ hotness, while others are complaining the video camera didn’t have a sharper focus. My favorite are the ones pointing out how Andrews once wore a low-cut dress in the locker room while reporting on a Cubs/Brewers game. Because that makes some creep videotaping her naked OK, obvi.
