Apple News recently published a story from a British newspaper that was titled, “Pervert used pen camera to secretly take photos up woman’s skirt in McDonald’s.”
They reported: “Matthew Lewis sat next to the woman in her 30s and started showing her holiday pictures. Another woman spotted under-table images of her appearing on his phone. Lewis, of Brighton, denied outraging public decency but was convicted and given seven months’ jail.”
A man recently used a camera here in Southern California to do a similar thing. He filmed a woman actually removing her shirt. He then had the film distributed to sexual perverts who paid to watch it. This film wasn’t a dirty little secret like the under-the-table McDonald’s film. It was legitimized by being rated “R” by the government. The “R” meant that the film was restricted to adults because of its “nudity for sexual purposes.” Of course, this was just Hollywood doing what it does every day.
What then is the difference between the imprisoned pervert and the Hollywood professionals who are free to make big money by selling their over-the-counter films?
Is it that the man filmed a woman without her permission? So the problem wasn’t his perversion, but rather that he lacked the ability to find women who would be willing to legally prostitute themselves.
This could have been easily solved. Instead of being sent to prison for outraging public decency, Matthew Lewis should have been sent to Hollywood to earn a living. There, he could have pursued a legal career of finding loose ladies who don’t mind being exploited by men if the pay is right.
In Hollywood, he could even rise to be a wealthy and legitimate film producer, just like Harvey Weinstein.
