Just out of curiosity...

Little boy gets groped by woman on public transport
commenting on her breasts or similar and then she was trying to show him up as being immature rather than the big man in front of his friends...
audio is bad though, an i'm not watching it again... also, WTF?!
it doesn't make it acceptable in any way.
You might as well have just said 'I reckon he ate a Granny Smith apple a few minutes before this was recorded'
what's that grey-haired woman laughing for as well? She ought to be intervening.
She (or someone) seems to be saying something like ' think you can handle it?'.
So she's obviously just defending herself in the same way that Big Man was defending himself - vigilante style.
So where are all the Big Man fans? They were all for a spot of have a go heroism the other day. Not so vocal about it in this thread though. Why's that?
b) dry humping a child, as a pretty general rule, is not the answer to any situation.
b) who said it was? not me. so... b) = void in ^this reply.
This 40-something woman came up to us when we were walking down the road and said to my lanky mate that "his legs should be illegal" then winked. We thought she was drunk. He thought she was hot.
although with the caption and her behavior I don't think it's necessarily far fetched to suggest alcohol played a fairly big role in what happened.
As for people's reactions whilst personally I was unsettled by it I wouldn't be surprised if due to certain attitudes surrounding male and female sexuality, even when it concerns that of a young boy, means something like this isn't dealt with in the fashion it should be and those attitudes are not at all solely the reserve of women.
One more thing, the people in the background sound a lot like children or at least teenagers, I suspect if there had been more adults present, someone would have intervened.
I think because there is an existing difference in attitude towards women who do something like this compared to men that also makes the reality of it different, in that for a man to do something like that they would have crossed so far past the line of socially acceptable, the victim is gonna think if they can do that then what is this person capable of, the fear factor is going to be different than if the genders were swapped in this situation, I think thats why people find it less shocking. Not saying thats right at all
