I won’t preach to you about your eating habits, so why do you preach to me about mine? So I don’t eat meat, so what? Maybe you don’t like carrots, no one would ever see anything wrong with that. But me noting like meat is obviously something to be complete offended and appalled by. Because that makes a ton of sense.
People need to stop caring what I put in my mouth. If it’s your dad’s dick that’s in there, you can care. But anyhing else, keep your opinions to yourself.
exactly.this is how i feel ALL THE TIME.
people, it’s not a big deal. I don’t eat meat you do. I don’t say anything if you eat meat so fuck off
yesyesyes. people are so fucking annoying when they find out im a vegetarian.
Agreed! People bother me all the time, especially my dad. It’s like WTF, you get to spend less money on food so stop fucking complaining
I. Anyone in a public place can take pictures of anything they want. Public places include parks, sidewalks, malls, etc. Malls? Yeah. Even though it’s technically private property, being open to the public makes it public space.
II. If you are on public property, you can take pictures of private property. If a building, for example, is visible from the sidewalk, it’s fair game.
III. If you are on private property and are asked not to take pictures, you are obligated to honor that request. This includes posted signs.
IV. Sensitive government buildings (military bases, nuclear facilities) can prohibit photography if it is deemed a threat to national security.
V. People can be photographed if they are in public (without their consent) unless they have secluded themselves and can expect a reasonable degree of privacy. Kids swimming in a fountain? Okay. Somebody entering their PIN at the ATM? Not okay.
VI. The following can almost always be photographed from public places, despite popular opinion:
accident & fire scenes, criminal activities
bridges & other infrastructure, transportation facilities (i.e. airports)
industrial facilities, Superfund sites
public utilities, residential & commercial buildings
VII. Although “security” is often given as the reason somebody doesn’t want you to take photos, it’s rarely valid. Taking a photo of a publicly visible subject does not constitute terrorism, nor does it infringe on a company’s trade secrets.
VIII. If you are challenged, you do not have to explain why you are taking pictures, nor to you have to disclose your identity (except in some cases when questioned by a law enforcement officer.)
IX. Private parties have very limited rights to detain you against your will, and can be subject to legal action if they harass you.
X. If someone tries to confiscate your camera and/or film, you don’t have to give it to them. If they take it by force or threaten you, they can be liable for things like theft and coercion. Even law enforcement officers need a court order.
