Never underestimate the power of a bag of chips.

The question I have: Was he really following her or was she being paranoid?
I wish with all my heart that that was Ryan Gosling eating those chips. Hey, girl.
+David Martins I've had instances where I get on the highway behind someone and after tailing them forever (because they are so slow and I can't pass), we exit the same spot and take the same route to the grocery store...
...I fear one day I'm going to get out of the car and they're going to think I was following 'em and attack me. Coincidences happen! O.O
WTF! She attacked him for following her and he's the guy in the wrong?!? So he might have just gotten on the same car as her, she kicked the crap out of him, he only fought back after getting kicked and he has to change his behavior? Glad I wasn't there.
Was that the accused saying that he "treated her for dinner and that's she's crazy". Don't rush to assume that she wasn't telling the truth. Perhaps he did take her to dinner and she didn't like him - but now he feels like she "owes him something" or that following her would endear her to him (Pepe LePew sure tried that tactic!) Sure, she didn't have to hit him, but I am glad she spoke out and that someone, 3 people even, had the nerve to interfere. Often times people stand idly by and people, women especially, get dead. And kudos to the fellow train riding woman for handling the situation so diplomatically.
So everyone is okay with a woman hitting a man who has not done anything physical to her. The proper solution isn't to go to the authorities of which there are numerous police on the NY trains and in the stations. If a man was being stalked by a woman on the train would you be okay with him hitting her to get his point across? Of course if we just take the feminist stance that all men are wanna be rapists then that solution is fine.
I seriously think that a whole lot of women keep telling everyone that they want the same rights, responsibilities, and freedoms as men until it's to their disadvantage and then it's "we need to protect the poor women".

Which, by the way, has nothing to do with this. This is about someone assaulting someone else and not being held responsible for their actions due to their sex.
What?!! Are you aware of the child support policies of the American court system, the idea of alimony, practice of police removing the physically larger person from the premise when responding to a domestic violence call regardless of the facts of the incident? How are they disadvantaged?
I would agree with women being disadvantage in third world countries and historically but in first world countries today that is simply not the case.
Fair enough. We'll drop it.
