A warning to the women of Toronto:
I rarely browse Reddit, because of the large amounts of circle jerking and men’s rights activists, but once in a while I’ll check out the Toronto subreddit and today, this post caught my eye:
So there was a post on /r/creepshaming that alerted me to this guy: http://www.reddit.com/user/CreeperComforts/submitted/ He’s been taking creep pictures of women in Toronto. Here are his “tips”:
I use full sized cameras. Better image quality and most people pay you no attention when you have one. Don’t be afraid to take a picture. If you look like you know what you are doing, most people will ignore you. DSLR. By far my favorite camera for creepshots. Why? Because you DO NOT HIDE IT. You can’t really, it’s too big.
See, a SLR is large and typically hangs around your neck. Due to natural walking gate, it will swing wildly unless you hold onto it. The natural way to do this is to rest your right hand on it with your thumb on the trigger.
Most SLR cameras are also exceptionally efficient in that they only use power when you partially press the trigger. So, they can sit there with the power on for DAYS and still be good to go when you call upon them The way my SLR hangs on me leaves it at the perfect “aim at the hiney height”. I just need walk near a sexy booty, press the trigger and bam, I have a 5 shot per second burst of insanely high quality shots of said booty.
Upside? No one thinks you’ll be taking sneaky shots with such a large camera, in fact, you can be blunt and just hold it up to use the view finder. People ignore you when you use a camera like that. Proof? Try taking a picture on a busy sidewalk and count how many people walk right in front of you. Also, in the dark, you can use the flash and no one even cares.
Down side: Shutter noise on my current system. Newer cameras give the option to turn this noise off for truly silent photography. So, in the mean time, sneaky shots need to be taken around places with lots of masking background noise. Streets, festivals, etc. Malls kind of work, if the lighting is right.
He’s the mod at /r/creepshots… Of all people, a Torontonian is the top mod. This disgusts me so much. Please, be careful, and to the men of Toronto, warn your friends!
According to his comments, he’s 6’4” and has had “25+ years of experience watching porn”. This is how he gets most of his shots:
“My main “sneaky” cam is my Canon. It’s a point and shoot (P&S) camera that can be palmed easily. I like Canon because they boot up REALLY quick and you can control everything, including the sound settings so that it doesn’t make a peep when being turned on or taking a picture. I keep it in “programmable” mode so that the flash doesn’t pop on like it does in AUTO mode. Downside? There is no viewfinder, that’s what the very bright LCD screen is used for. And you have no option to turn it off, so, you need to keep it held against your leg or jacket for true creepshots.
I typically Keep it in my pocket and when I see a target, take it out, and hold it on it’s side in my right hand (think portrait mode). I use my thumb to hit the power button, and the lens extends between my index and middle finger. I use my thumb to snap a few shots, then power off and back into my pocket. The entire event is less than 5 seconds in most cases.”
If you guys are unaware, /r/creepshots is a subreddit devoted to photos taken of unsuspecting women (normally of their backside)without their consent. It’s fucking disgusting and deplorable. And apparently it’s all perfectly legal. The photos appear to be taken in the Queen and University area.
I just want to send out a warning to all women of Toronto, especially those around downtown. Be aware and vigilant and don’t be afraid to call a pig out on his shit. I know we have a good amount of followers, so if you wouldn’t mind signal-boosting this it would be much appreciated.
Mild Voyeurism || Kurtannis
Tannis blushed dark red. He couldn’t believe he and Kurt were about to do this. Kurt was gonna watch Tannis masturbating to the thought of his twin touching him. He wrung his hands and paced back and forth as he waited for Kurt to come. Their dad was out of the house for the night, so this was their only real chance.
