Yes, I said it.

I'm so fed up with living in a world where we can't run errands anymore without hoping and praying we don't get robbed, carjacked, or even worse... sexualized just walking into a store.

Now that we know that... why is it SO HARD to just keep some stuff to yourself?  The world doesn't need to see your intrusive thoughts come to life.

When you look up public indecency incidents in Illinois, a lot of stories pop up.  From people exposing themselves on Illinois buses, in front of minors, and even inside Walmart on an Easter Sunday.

Make sure if you ever see this lewd behavior go down, call the authorities immediately.
