So they should stop a bully from getting what she deserves?

Social media is a far more powerful weapon.

Thereís this old goat living in the WH who could see his favorability ratings soar if he ceased online bullying like a middle school kid.

But if a guy steps in does that make him sexist? What...women canít fight just like men? If itís a white guy could that mean heís racist and looking for a fight himself? Or would he just be seen as a nerd that needs to be put in his place for disturbing the show? But yeah, Iíd like to imagine a society where young men would step between two women that look like they could potentially fight. Never seen women that fight as a very attractive thing...the bully in this case is about 0% lady...disgusting actually.

being a good Samaritan is fraught with danger these days. along with a potential for personal harm, good Samaritans open themselves to potential lawsuits and public scorn for trying to help a person in need. I agree with you that doing the right thing does often come with personal risk.

I saw a video this morning of a bleeding young woman who stumbling into a local restaurant looking for help. she was gushing blood because she had been stabbed by a stranger while on her evening jog. Many people in the restaurant took one look at her and ran out the restaurant door. but, some people did try to help her. sadly, she died of her injuries, but at least there were some people willing to do the right thing.
