It's just the actual private parts that could get her in trouble.'


Also, you guys and gals really live in an unrealistic world where everything ought to be a crime. In other countries, like Japan, India, people actuallly get molested. A hand grabbing a guys or girls jeans on the back side for 2 seconds is nothing compared to real sexual assualt, etc
I actually agree but I like feeding into men who are appalled by stuff like this. It's fun to me for some reason.

lol at those implying he may have enjoyed it. Highly improbable. Intimacy isn't enjoyable in that kind of situation.

Did you get your pocket picked? That was my experience in Barcelona last year. However, I chased after her, ran her down and turned her over to the police, after the crowd on the metro platform gave me a standing ovation for my efforts.

You noticed you were being robbed. The OPS didn't get robbed, just felt up.

Thanx Dave. Appreciate your understanding.

Really, it doesn't bother me when I think about it and I don't care that much anyways. It's the thought that a woman would be that brave who doesn't even know me and grabbed me in a way more reserved for a girlfriends touch.

If it was the other way around and a woman posted this thread, everyone here would be talking about serious sexual harrassment and perhaps filing charges against the creep right?! This is the hypocrisy of CD that I've learned to ignore in light of some of the responses and threads.

Um... no. Have you ever heard of someone filing charges against someone for grabbing their butt in a crowded area? I've had my butt grabbed by strangers before. Funny - didn't file charges. Now, if it is a boss or a coworker that did something like that - someone who you saw every day and was making you very uncomfortable - that would be a different story.

But still, (and I don't think you'd disagree, Dewdrop,) a stranger groping someone without permission isn't "brave," it's lacking boundaries. Unfortunately a lot of women think that men would appreciate such behavior, which is a dangerous assumption.

I agree that it's lacking boundaries but I'm not sure that a lot of women think that men would appreciate such behavior. Women making the first move in a bar or on a date is one thing (and even then - many men still prefer to make the first move) but a woman groping a stranger sight unseen is something that I think most women would assume men would have a problem with. But I could be wrong.

I think it's just the small subset of women who think that men are always "up for it" so when the women are the gropers it's cheeky and cute, not inappropriate.

Hmmm... Although I did tweak my husband's nipples backstage before I had been formally introduced to him...
But it wasn't sexual - and he did think it was cheeky and cute! Haha!

But I never would have done that to some strange guy on the subway.
