  1. ‘She-Hulk’ collars alleged T creep after lewd act

    There seems to be an uptick in good people who have had enough of all the crap. First the old lady who locked the cop in her basement, then the guy who stripped naked at the checkpoint in Portland. Now this gal. Amazing story, I think she just lost it and took matters into her own hands.

    It's a good trend!

    Can't believe a passenger* just looked on and shrugged.

    What is this I don't even.

    It's not like you have to grab the creep and smash their face into the ground over and over until it's a meat-and-bone slurry. Just stand between them and the object of their *ahem* affection.

    But actually watching and shrugging? A nonverbal "not my problem, what do I give a (expletive deleted)?" The willingness of good people to do nothing is what got the Boondock Saints started and we saw how that turned out.

    *If specifically mentioning the gender of the passenger who shrugged was intended to start gender-war arguments, I'm not taking the bait. For shame, reporter.

    Sorry, but if this "guy" had done this to me (not that I'm all that hot), he would have been missing a couple of nuts when all was said and done!

    You're very optimistic. For every one of these, there are probably a dozen where right does not triumph.

    Isn't that the cop way of doing things?

    The lady should have taken him on a high speed tour of the station. Bet he would have followed.;)
  7. Well, yes. Creeps are still roaming the planet and treating good people like crap, and good people are still putting up with it. But I'm impressed when I hear of several people doing these sort of things all around the same time. I don't know that I would do any of these things, in most instances. I know I've heard more of this stuff lately, even, I'm just drawing a blank on the specific instances.

    As far as the gender element of the article, I think it's very interesting. This woman looked to the men around her for help with the situation. I think this is what even the most hardy feminists among us would think to do -- men are on average larger, stronger and more physically able to to subdue another man, so it's just the logical thing to do. If you look at the picture in the article, the gal who did this wasn't huge. If this guy had fought with her, she might not have won. But the men around her happened to be jerks, or weenies, or both, so instead of escaping the situation (which I bet would have been my impulse), she took control of it. She somehow realized she didn't need the men. In fact, what she did had much more of a positive impact than having a couple of guys tackle this guy. What she did was so shocking and unexpected, I'll bet this guy never does anything like it again.

    Me, too. And I'll raise you a "next time he'll so something much worse!"
  10. Okay, I'll qualify my statement -- he'll think twice before victimizing cute young women, lest he pick the wrong one and end up publically humiliated and in the clink once again.

    (Sheesh, you folks have so given up on humanity. :))

    He may think twice but I'm betting this guy gets his jollies doing things like this. He'll be back, perhaps a different venue, but he'll be back.
