[QUOTE=Thalia]Are you serious? It's illegal, it's a form of sexual assult. It's happened to most women, and they can tell you men grabbing your private parts and laughing at you is humiliating, degrading, and frightening. So much so that even a confident feminist-type like me has been far too embarassed to tell many people about some of these incidents that I have experienced.
I am saying that grab ass is not sexual assult or misconduct untill the word stop is spoken or comunicated to the offender. the law not me says this. I have patey the arse of many a woman and guy...
when told knock it off, or stop I always have...in some cases (most while participating in a school play) the game has had a duality. Now i have seen this get out of where folks are (as you seem to discribe) getting felt up an area above grab arse. These are cases where stop was spoken..or folks found a closet. People show afection many ways some folks do not care for these ways, and it is up to them to say stop or dont do that to me.
The best rule of thumb is not to do it, and while not all grab ass is ment to be "degrading" i understand it can be.
lastly I did read the stories and I my take is of little concern as I believe that most of the "stories" were generated left wing hog wash. I believe that incodents happened, adn that most of these women are simply trying to cash in on mans fame and good fortune.
lastly i believe that if a woman is strong, she will leave a pig husband...and vice versa...and that if she does not leave then he is no pig or she not strong.
