Further to the Amazing Race assault post, another example of how men will just stand around while a man beats a woman, so long as they can assume that the woman is the man’s property.
Etana at Fatshionista writes “When two whole cakes ain’t enough arsenal…”
A random bloke assaulted her guide dog, assaulted and punched and spat at her, and swore at her repeatedly, at a bus stop. No one came to her aid.
Now it gets interesting. Like any high school bully he looks around for witnesses. Like any blind fool I don’t, I can’t tell. No one is rushing to my aide so I assume we’re alone to duke it out. Incredulously he turns around, starts to walk away and skips a beat. Returning to face me he says “you fucking fat cunt, fuck you. I’ll do what I want.” He then spits directly into my face – hitting my nose and mouth.
Then this happened afterwards:
A stranger from across the street walks over to me and asks if I knew the guy. Clearly, since we were fighting and all. If I had known him it would have been ok. Since I didn’t….well he felt bad. Luckily the bus finally came, I grabbed my dog and dignity and left.
