AMNY reports that the Manhattan borough president wants to have the police crack down on subway pervsattacking and harassing people in the subway.
Scott Stringer’s office asked commuters how often someone sexually attacked or harassed them in the subway, and found frightening results. More than 60 percent of those who responded to the online study said they were sexually harassed and 10 percent said they’d been sexually assaulted. (AMNY)
60% !??! Are you kidding me? More than half the riders of the subway have been sexually harassed in the subway? That seems a bit too extreme. Ok, so 98% have been harassed in general, but not sexually.
Rush hour was noted as the most dangerous time to get sexed up. How is that? One woman reported that a man began to masturbate across right in front of her. I must be missing something. Where are all these freaks at 5:30pm on a Tuesday?
I guess I can see how people can cop a feel while getting crammed into a subway car. I mean, it is just close quarters. Your entire body gets pressed up against the person in front of you, but I don’t think that counts as a sexual crime. Pervs must be playing grab ass or something and blaming it on the congestion.
I guess I will have to do a better job protecting my sweet, sweet ass.
