Thank you, red_phoenix.

I'm pissed right now, but I'll have forgotten soon. Anyway, they tend to be struck in traffic when I just breeze through and that thought is enough to make me smile


Edit: I re-read my second post and it sounds worst than it actually was. I've cooled down already
Some things are not quite appropriate, but there's nothing to fear and that can't be said for anyone nor anywhere.

It isn't alright. And sometimes it goes even further than shouting. When my wife and I were in Lisbon a while back (when she was still a blonde ), men would come up to her in the street and pinch her bum, or grab her arm. That is really pushing it!

IMO that's asking for a serious beating.

You're right, it isn't ok. I've dealt with jackasses before. I've had my butt grabbed, and my hand held to stop me from walking away. I'm also a very small woman and I think a lot of men don't think I am capable of taking care of myself (my husband included, which is why he hates when I wear anything revealing). Well, let me tell you, there are a LOT of men out there that learned the hard way that just because I'm small doesn't mean I'm a pushover . A lot of men also had to crawl away from me after touching me.

I'm sorry about your wife. It's a terrible situation to find yourself in, and very traumatizing to the recipient of those types of advances.

Good for you for not letting it affect your whole day! They were exactly what you said they were: Jackasses. It's not worth ruining your day over

My wife is small too, but a real firebrand. She doesn't generally let anyone get away with anything. Lisbon was a bit much though, and things finally went too far when we were in our hotel restaurant and she was followed back to our room by two men when she went up to collect something. I went on the rampage then, and we weren't bothered after that. I really like Portugal, having been there on holiday about nine times, but we won't be going back to Lisbon again.

One of the train lines in Osaka (a major north-south route through the entire length of the city's downtown area) has installed 'Women Only' cars in every train just to stop the grabbing, touching, rubbing, etc., that the women here frequently get subjected to because to the crowded train cars.

In the past, Japanese women would never make a scene when being fondled in public. They would just try to turn their bodies or step away to avoid it. But the trains often get so crowded that moving isn't even possible. There are now signs on every train platform and in the cars advising women to shout out "Cheekan!!!" (Molester!!) when this happens to them, and call for help. It's a step in the right direction, but it would be wonderful if there was some way to change the mental attitude of the men responsible. I'm afraid Japan is still a long way off from that sort of thinking.

There are a few men who will not have kids after they tried madterbating on me on the metro. Yes, they do do that. Yes, I kneeded the two who tried it on me very hard right in the penis.

The weird part is that the Italians seemed more disturbed that I kneed the fools then at their behavior.

I have a set time every night for snuggles with Lucas. I love the impromptu snuggles I get every day but 7:30 is calm down for bed time, if he is not already asleep.

Can you, um, not come to New Zealand? We've had our quota of earthquakes lately (though nowhere near where I live) and we don't need any more, thank you.

Well, there's a rant right there. I got onto the wrong page thinking it was the latest and put in a reply that looks out of context in an interesting discussion. I can't figure out how to delete it, me with my degree in computer science and all. So I leave it there looking a bit strange.

Only way to drop a post is to flag it for the moderators (the blue ! mark in the top corner) and ask them to drop it.
