58. That intrusiveness is how women feel
when we know it's happened to us. And it does happen to us, and a lot of us find out about it afterwards. (You can count me in that group - thank you very much, co-workers. And - it was an entire group of male coworkers, not "one bad apple"). It doesn't suddenly become piggish if and only if the woman finds out.

It's not okay to spy on people without their knowledge. That's pretty basic stuff. If you know they'd be pissed off if they found out, that's a clue you're doing something wrong, no?

Heck, think how pissed off people get about the eavesdropping bill. We're pissed even if we don't know specifically that it's our phone calls being recorded, even if all they record is a cell phone call that we even made in public.
