We Want Our Daughters to be Tough Like This...

Sharon - posted on 01/03/2011 ( 11 moms have responded )






Riding the subway in New York has its pros (low-cost, easy mode of transportation) and cons (weird smells, often weirder people). Usually it's the smells that are the most distasteful. But when this tough New York woman had a man press up against her and expose himself, she was no wilting flower, according to Jezebel. She loudly confronted him and declared that it was her mission to get him arrested for what he did ("My plans are done for the night. I'm escorting you to the police station.") And now she's kind of our hero. As much as we don't want our daughters to end up in a similar situation with a creepy subway passenger, we want them to react exactly the same way if they do.

Do we?

Does anyone have additional information on this? I'd love to know how this turned out.

I would so do this. I come from a long line of tough women and there isn't anything I've seen them/us back down from.

I think I would too much in shock to react like this. The words would come to me later

"I don't know if I would react like this I would probably go for the humiliation approach with the "Is that it, put it back in the dark and let it grow some more" very loudly."

I don't think that humilation is even a factor for someone that would do something like that in the first place. A normal person would be too modest to even attempt a stunt like that.

I think I would totally go the route of making a big ass stink and calling as much attention to it as possible though. I may even go as far as to drag his perverted ass by the bass balls to the authorities like Trish said.

I do. I would not be displeased if my daughter, or son, grabbed a handful of ball, stood the guy up on his toes and then told him off, or shamed him, loud enough for all to hear. Even drug him to a security or police officer by their balls. But if they decide to ignore the guy, too, that is ok as well. Whatever their personalities allow, but in your face kinda runs in our family.

Good on her! I think women the world over would like to shake her hand. I don't know if I would react like this I would probably go for the humiliation approach with the "Is that it, put it back in the dark and let it grow some more" very loudly. Then I would get off the train and report it. With the hope that he would be to ashamed to do it again.

Good for her, she wasn't embarrassed about the situation or hesitant to "make a big deal" out of it, what a brave woman. See and that's the type of girl you'd never see getting a boob job cuz some guy told her to or getting into drugs because its "cool". I hope I can raise my hypothetical daughter to be as confident as that woman she knew what that man did was wrong, she took it as her own responsability to make sure he wasn't going to pull the same crap with some other innocent woman, and she probably saved herself (if not someone else) from being further assaulted just because she drew everyones attention to what was going on. subways are so dangerous that could of gone a lot worse, hero is the word for sure!

WOW! I think that woman is kinda my hero if she actually escorted that man to the police station!
