Voyeur- a person who gets sexual pleasure from secretly watching other people having sex

I came across this word in the text ” Barney Collier’s book” during class. It states, ” You could have had some award winning photographs of her underpants as her skirt billowed over her head, you voyeurs”. By observing context clues, I new it was not a positive term or something that was looked down upon in society, especially considering the circumstances it was used in. After researching this word it was clear that i was something that is inappropriate in the moment it may have taken place. This isn’t a word that I would generally see in any other text. But it does clearly get the point across with emphasis.
