This popped up on my FB newsfeed :

I hate the term flasher as it sounds like it's not serious. I was the victim of indecent exposure on three occasions as a child and it was extremely upsetting and traumatising. Why does this term continually get used to describe this sort of crime, or AIBU/ over sensitive?

YANBU, flasher does trivialise it, makes it sound like its something funny or less harmful. He's a predator.
