vaz, take the time to explain to us what you intended by these two comments.

In response to anitram's question as to whether or not you'd seen a woman ever masturbate in public:

And then there was this as a follow-up:

How did you mean for those to be taken, if you're saying you weren't making any jokes.

Am I supposed to read that and think you were at a party or something and saw some woman take your bottle of beer and start masturbating with it and that it disgusted you?

If so, a simple "yes" would have sufficed in response to anitram's question.

I have started precisely 2 threads dealing with gender rights of my 239 total threads.

I have raised certain VERY SPECIFIC issues regarding mens' rights, for example, the high rates of suicide among young men in Western societies, the treatment of fathers in the family law courts, and the like.

If you haven't figure it out yet -- you are not allowed to do that.

What an odd story to get FYM so worked up. I agree it's a despicable story, but the way this thread has gone is very odd...

Other than that, this seems to be basically just another "ewww omg gross" shock-value story, and I really don't know that it's worth all the heat it seems to have generated in here. I certainly agree that it's not a funny story or an appropriate occasion for jokes though.
Let's remember that this is a 2 year-old story, that the woman suffered no physical harm and that she is suing, not the creep, but the airline and attendants.

I had fun composing my posts. How ironic if, I alone, found pleasure in them.

Really? You thought everyone would gather round for a good laugh? Talk about not knowing your audience.

What was wrong with the first quotation ?

Well to cut a story short i was at a party and i went toilet, my mates were drunk and they found a female to perform a sex act using my beer bottle all off which was recorded using a mobile phone or cell phone as you call it. On my return i drank from the bottle and my mates shown me the clip. As you can imagine i was not impressed.

I really should of explained my case but you shouldnt have jumped to conclusions as i find nothing wrong with my posts but if thats the way you interrupted them thats my fault for not explaining.

Well obviously you sue someone who can pay. The creep is probably insolvent.

What I would like to know, is what ever happened to the sick perpetrator? Is he locked up? Is he free? Is he on some plane tonight?

Martha's modus operandi on here is to twist people's words to make it look like they're saying something they aren't.

You're not the only one to be on the receiving end of her particular brand of sexism - unfortunately, it's a fairly regular occurence for her to throw sexist abuse at male posters, to misattribute their motives, and to falsely accuse them of sexism - and, in this particular thread - even worse - for her to falsely accuse other posters of not caring about sexual assault.
This isn't pure and simple.


If you actually tried just disagreeing with me, instead of tirades about my motives and perceived sexism, you may get farther. Try it sometime, because we actually agree more times than either one of us wants to admit.

Well, to bring that up without full explanation in a discussion about a case of sexual harrassment, I'd say it perhaps was an ... unfortunate place to do so.

But mainly, I don't care to read about women shoving bottles up their yahoos when I come to FYM.

(But thanks for taking the time to explain - I have to say that is indeed pretty disgusting.)

Well I doubt he's locked up. I would think a fine would be in order, but not jail time.

On a side note, at the Texas state fair, some years ago I walked into a public restroom where a man was masturbating at one of the urinals while looking at patrons using the urinals next to his. As I walked out I overheard a man explaining the scenario to a cop, but what he failed to explain(or notice) was the man was obviously mentally retarded. A few minutes later the man was taken out in cuffs. I thought the cuffs were a little inappropriate given the circumstance...

Now this man in the story may not have been mentally retarded, but he obviously has some psychological issues.

Yes my apologies but it was relevant to the question asked, but im sure you don't come to FYM to read about passengers being violated like in the case presented in the first post either.
