How could I forget to mention Tuesday's ruling by a Maryland judge in a case of a man who mooned a woman and her 8-year-old daughter? After an argument broke out between 44-year-old Raymond McNealy and Nanette Vonfeldt last summer (regarding a homeowners' association meeting), McNealy decided to end things by mooning her while she was accompanied by her daughter. At issue before Judge John Debelius III was whether this constituted indecent exposure. Debelius called the act "disgusting" and "demeaning," but again, in the end, did not deem it indecent exposure, which, according to an appeals court in another case, "relates to a person's genitals."
On the one hand, Judge Debelius is right that "If exposure of half of the buttock constituted indecent exposure, any woman wearing a thong at the beach at Ocean City would be guilty." On the other hand, the prosecutor argued, "This was not a bathing suit scenario. This was a grown man exposing himself to an 8-year-old girl."
I'd like to add that a man in a thong should definitely be charged with indecent exposure and prosecuted to the fullest extent. I've been to the Caribbean and I still have nightmares.
