    It's actually kind of depressing to read the incident reports. You think a place is safe and then my little incident and all the reports. Geeze... Also, a disturbing amount of hit and runs take place.

    Tonight, I had stopped running because I was tired and some asswipe was following me and badgering me for my number. He continually said things about my looks. I kept brushing him off, including telling him that I'm not interested in men, (which is a total lie). Then he had the nerve to ask if I was a "good girl" while trying to manhandle me. I just kept trying to walk in the direction out of the park and was looking for someone else to be out. I should have $#@!ing beat the snot out of him. I just kept thinking "escape" not "attack". I didn't even have my stupid keys because I didn't need them.

    $#@!ing $#@!. I'm spitting mad. I'm not sure if I should bother calling the police since it's Saturday night and they're probably tied up elsewhere, but I am very unhappy. He was literally like something from your worst nightmare - beady eyes, his teeth were all broken and chipped so they looked freaky and he kept making weird noises when he was following me inbetween harassing me.

    I am so pissed off.

    S&M? You mean you're going to tie up your attackers, ball gag them and whip em into a lather?

    Or do you mean Smith and Wesson?

    Seriously Adelaide so sorry this happened to you, glad you're a fighter!

    Dear Santa,

    I want a zombie bunker that will withstand the inevitable collapse of our nation's corrupt leadership, the dark cabal the commands them, and the morons that make most of my countrymen.

    @the OP:

    I too am very glad you're safe!

    As to the nature of what happened to you, I more than relate, as some here already know. You'd be surprised at the number of men who are possessed of what we might delicately call romantic/sexual entitlement mentality. It's an unfair burden, but unfortunately a reality that women should definitely know how to defend themselves because there is a remarkably good chance that one will encounter this type of situation. According to recent statistics, somewhere between 1 out of 4 and 1 out of 5 American women have been raped before. That's raped, not harassed. Harassment of the sort you describe is experienced by nearly every woman in America at some point in their lives. There is no such thing as a truly "safe" neighborhood. In fact, you're most likely to be attacked not by a stranger, as in your encounter, but by someone you know! One must be prepared. I'm glad to hear that, from your description, you seemed to be. Also glad to hear you reported the encounter. Most don't do so, but you always should! Otherwise this may not be the last time you run into said person.

    Much as I like your politics overall Grumpy (it's true!), this isn't a joke. This is real harassment that very easily could have wound up an assault case we're talking about. This is no place for jokes. They come off as trivializing the subject at hand.

    It would be interesting to see self defense taught in schools as part of physical education.
