    what is the point of flashing?

  • hollylama Jul 17, 2007

    I guess I'm wondering like everyone else how someone can flash while driving their car and how the can get a description but not a license plate number? (possibly because the new red plates are harder to read?!?!) If a guy flashed me I would probably laugh and continue on my way...why anyone would call the police...don't know. But would this be a problem if a woman flashed another woman or if a woman flashed a man? Why is the male penile function something thats so taboo?

    If this man flashed your daughters, how would you feel about him then?

    I can see this happening if he has a sunroof and passes a SUV/truck. The height difference can be pretty significant. A silver Honda Accord/Civic - isn't that every other car on the road?

    A lady I work with and I were walking and a flasher ran in front, flashed us and she looks down and with out missing a step said " Little boy, go home and come back when you grow something" Took the wind out of his sails and I got all dirty rolling in the street.

    I think this is funny! Once you've seen one mans junk, you've seen them all. Goodness there are soooo many other problems in the twon of Raleigh and some prude wants to raise a fuss about some guy whos friends have probably made a bet with him to do this. Its just funny to me where priorities lie these.

    Some times I wish people would grow up. The flashing needs to grow up, and the people wining about seeing a penis. Oh my god. I can't turn on my TV at any point in the day on any day of the week and not see some barely clothed woman. Yeah its illegal, but give me a break...flasher < murder, rapist, robber, the list goes on.
