Creepy Lululemon-Related Story

There was disturbing story on Gawker yesterday regarding Lululemon pants. Here are the first couple of paragraphs of the article:

"Here's a fun hobby: Covertly filming women's butts in tight pants or leggings and posting them to YouTube. A Canadian university was recently struck by a wave of this "upskirt-lite" voyeurism. But secretly-filmed butts are all over YouTube."

"This week campus security at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia issued a warning about some pervert secretly filming female students and posting the videos to YouTube. Though news reports initially didn't link to the account, it was easy to figure out the user was one LeggingSpy. For months, LeggingSpy had stalked college girls with a video camera as they walked around wearing leggings. Then he uploaded clips with catchy titles like "A$$ Closeup: college teen girl caught wearing black Lululemon leggings spandex pants". Leggingspy's channel had over 340,000 views by the time it was shut down."

"Police and media attention seems to have driven LeggingSpy into hiding, but there are plenty of other creepy a$$ men on YouTube. (Though none appear to have LeggingSpy's in-depth knowledge of legging manufacturers.)"

i'm a high school student and read your blog regularly, and i actually live in nova scotia- very close to Dalhousie university- and this level of creepiness, frankly, doesn't surprise me. Lululemon pants are actually HUGE with women of all ages in Nova Scotia, and boys do indeed like them very much (maybe too much so).

I recently moved from the East coast to Seattle and I've never had so many men cat call me when wearing lulu in my life! It's actually embarrassing! I guess people on the West coast really are more friendly (good or bad)...
