so that was the first time, and then later after being found in another women's restroom

>Chasing officers caught him and seized his mobile phone on which almost 400 upskirt-style photographs were discovered.

welp, seems like a ban from further visits to the ladies room is only appropriate

I understand that.

I don’t understand peeping your phone camera under stalls when the internet has so much quality filth easily available.

Some part of this fucker enjoyed having power, of doing it without their consent, and that’s never okay.

Yes. But involving parties without their consent is where it crosses the line.


MrTomDawson t1_j9t2a4e wrote

Maybe I've misunderstood, but my understanding has always been that as a man I'm already banned from the women's toilets?


cb43569 t1_j9t49jz wrote

There are no laws in the UK governing which bathroom you can use. The fact that women use the women's bathroom and men use the men's bathroom is a matter of social convention. It's a bit like how there's no law saying you can't skip a queue, but you would be shamed by the people around you if you did. (In the US in recent years, right-wing Republicans have been introducing "bathroom bills" enforcing this division, but in the service of transphobia by excluding trans women from women's bathrooms.)

In this case, a court has made an order banning this guy from women's bathrooms, meaning that he will in fact be guilty of a criminal offence if he goes into one.

And if you are taking a child to the loo and are the opposite sex to your child that also can raise confusion about which loo to use


aagjevraagje t1_j9t65a4 wrote

In a lot of places gendered bathrooms are not in fact legally enforced.

Men who need to use a changing station or borrow a toilet roll or have to deal with maintenance being done on the mens toilet or whatever other non creepy reason one might use the bathroom of another gender for have not crossed any legal boundary.

It’s harrasing people and voyourism that’s not allowed.

That’s how it works in much of the world.


Psychomadeye t1_j9ugllu wrote

Men's rooms don't have changing stations? Now that I think about it I've never seen this when I've traveled to Europe.

Must be regional. I see them a lot. The only time I don't is at certain bars, or coffee shops.


cgknight1 t1_j9tdck4 wrote

No there is no law on this and its amazing common in busy bars to find women come into the men's to use a cubicle.


SirThatsCuba t1_j9vkyuw wrote

When I was a kid I remember it very common to find women in the men's rooms. Now I either tend to just go to less popular attractions or they've figured out how to provide women with enough toilets. Not sure which I never wanted to be a civil engineer.


cr0ft t1_j9tkuwe wrote

Putting a sign on the door that says "Women" doesn't have any actual laws and regs behind it.

In fact, I always try to use women's restrooms myself if they're single occupancy obviously... I don't go into big ones with stalls. Why single occupancy ones, though? Because the chances that there will be piss on the ceiling, walls, seat and floor go down slightly vs men's public restrooms, where all that is guaranteed.

In this case, the issue is that the guy is a voyeuristic perv lowlife and thus banned from being exactly that.


Scrapple_Joe t1_j9u67e5 wrote

I think the chances flip depending where you are. From the bar work in my life women avoiding sitting while drunk gets....messy

I was so confused by the headline as well. Like he’s just a normal looking person, so why are people hanging up pictures of his face in the stalls? (Especially when I’d never really seen ANYONE’s face displayed in the ladies’ room). And who is going to police this new rule?

Voyeurism is not the same as rape. There's gotta be some damned proportionality to legal consequences.


KesonaFyren t1_j9u4y94 wrote

Only 6-20% of rapists ever see the inside of a jail cell, so...

(And as everyone else has stated, proportionality)


Careless_Relief_1378 t1_ja6o7y9 wrote

But that’s because it’s hard to prove. Not because the law wouldn’t jail convicted rapists. This guy had the photos on his phone.


KesonaFyren t1_ja6sqn0 wrote

It's definitely hard to prove when rape kits are so frequently not given or sit untested afterwards.

It's even harder to prove when it's such an underrepoted crime because victims fear they won't be believed, and would rather try to move on then go through the additional stress of trying to get justice.

The tounge-in-cheek point of my comment was that sex crimes aren't taken as seriously as they should be.


StarksFTW t1_j9u1toz wrote

This isn’t the Middle Ages. Voyeurism isn’t rape, it’s gross and fucked up but they’re not gonna run around and cut peoples hands off for it. Privacy was violated but no physical harm, or contact, was done.

Mental harm is just as damaging.

No dude, just no. The mental harm from being photographed is not “just as damaging” as trauma from a physical assault. Pull your head out.


StarksFTW t1_j9ul89a wrote

And he got a month in prison and several years of parole. The guy is clearly mentally ill and needs professional help. Locking him away for decades would help no one and would only worsen his mental state when he would be released.

Lauren Fisher, mitigating, said her client had pleaded guilty to breaching a sexual harm prevention order at the earliest opportunity. She said he had completed all of the unpaid work, treatment programmes and probation service requirements from his last sentence.

Maybe it's different over there.


lemlurker t1_j9tj4ym wrote

No there's no legal protection for entering a women's toilet or even for women entering the men's. It's about what you do and what you intend. If you just go in, use the cubicle and leave without any intent to cause harm or distress you have commited no offense


cr0ft t1_j9tlcyv wrote

Yeah, the crime here is voyeurism, not using the toilet.

If I needed to go explosively and the men's was occupied, better believe I'd barge into a stall in the women's.


Rosebunse t1_j9ufmhy wrote

If a guy needs to use the toilet and that's the only thing available to him, he can use it. Nothing wrong with that.


Darzok t1_j9v6ol8 wrote

Its in fact protected under UK law that you can not stop men or women using the toilets of the other gender due to gender discrimination laws. There is no way to enforce this with out breaking the law with out a court order banning said person.


bouchert t1_j9ti2gu wrote

At first, the headline confused me. Like, "His face was banned? So, what, was he posting his photographic headshots on the insides of the stalls and scaring women?"


Skogula t1_j9u1gaf wrote

So, the rest of him his OK, just not his face?


theRose90 t1_j9ue8k4 wrote

The fact that this person is a cis man and made no attempts to hide their gender in any way and yet had unfiltered access to bathrooms anyyway, kind of proves the point that it would be pointless to in transition to gain access to a woman's bathroom to begin with huh? Like the fact that this is a court case kind of undercuts the entire transphobic theory of bathroom perverts right? Because if you need to transition to get into a bathroom and yet this guy didn't transition and was successfully repeatedly able to enter bathrooms for years.... Seems like all the transition would have done is put him on an increased risk of violence and scrutiny. From a statistical perspective, that's just fact.

Benedictus84 t1_j9tf15h wrote

The argument is more that there is nothing stopping perverts right now. As is shown by this outstanding individual.

There is no reason to change your gender to do the things perverts do.

And trans people do not get a free pass to do pervert things in the bathroom of the preference. This would also be illegal for a trans person to do.

So trans people doing perverted stuff is indeed not a problem. Atleast not any more or less then non trans people doing it.
