Why do you do what you do? Are you sick?

Do you have respect for other people? You're not ashamed of yourself?

So what you're basically saying is that New Yorker men are animals? London and Paris have all the things (bad & good) you mentioned but I notice it way more in NYC and all the subway horror stories come out of NYC. Is it due to nonexistence of Hispanic men in London and Paris? I'm not saying it's true, but I'm trying to understand where you're getting your point from.

A nice slam against the door (so that he falls on his ass) and a "GO F*** YOURSELF YOU F***G idiot" is what I prefer. I have done that before..except the guy didn't fall on his ass.
When I was in high school we had a self defense training session and one of the things the trainers talked about was what to do if a stranger gropes you on the street/subway. They said to try to grab the offender's hand, stick it up in the air and say something to the effect of "this guy is groping me/grinding me" out loud so that everyone in the vicinty can hear you. I actually used that technique once (except I didn't feel like grabbing his hand!) and it was surprisingly successful. The guy ran away as quickly as he could. Absolutely make a scene and embarrass the guy!

Uhh Paris is Fabulous, but the people there are nowhere nearly as good looking as NYC.

They dress fab though. In a perfect world MEN and Women in America would dress like Parisians!!

That's pretty much what I've done the few times its happened... "STOP GROPING ME, GET AWAY, WHY ARE YOU GROPING ME!" very loudly works.

LOL. My new self defense is pepper spray. Ya touch me..you're getting it in the eyes. I don't care when and where we are..I am sick and tired of these perverted idiots thinking they can get away with **** like that. I understand flirting...and if I ignore you and you stop..ok that's whatever..but if you are persistent like a dog.you're getting sprayed like a dog.

And just think, if you're lucky, maybe he'll buy you dinner later.
Actually, I have no problem with anyone brushing up against me - if it feels good to him/her and it is sensual enough ..... hey I'll take it ....

I am currently involved with two women, each half-time, and ladies .... I am not that hard up ..... believe me.

Furthermore, if one of these females or my mother or daughter were being brushed up against in public transit, (AND I HAVE SEEN THIS HAPPEN), my mother got very offended. However, I will be and have been the first to explain to these women that in crowded environments, these things tend to happen .... Rhyme or Reason - is sold separately.

What's the world coming to.

Men on subways with never opened umbrellas during periods of drought and briefcases that never contain one sheet of paper.

Gives the good guys a bad name. My friend was standing in line at HSBC with a roll of quarters on his person and almost got arrested.
