Sexism in Reverse 2...

Posted on Thu, Mar 12, 2009 at 2:47 PM

I was walking down the street on my way to a function at a local hotel wearing a kilt. While stopped at a street corner awaiting the light to change two women approached me from behind. One lifted up my kilt and gave my now exposed posterior a good grope followed by a slap meanwhile her friend was taking a video of the incident with her mobile phone camera. I was both humiliated and angered and I still fail to see any humour in this situation. I turned to the two women in question and told them how fortunate they were to live in a time where it is perfectly fine for them to publicly assault and humiliate me. Had the situation been reversed I would most certainly have found myself being arrested, charged, jailed and made to sign the sex offenders registry. So much for equality...
