Prick Or Treat Train Rides

This article in BBC News is titled Anti-groping Cameras Set For Tokyo Train Lines.

"Train gropers - or chikan - are common characters in Japanese popular culture. A railway company in Japan is to install special cameras on its Tokyo commuter trains to help deal with the problem of groping on public transport. In a survey, four in five women report being molested on public transport."

If I lived in Japan, I would be selling big giant old fashioned hat pins to women as they arrived at the train stations. Instead of Bag Lady, I would be known as Prick Lady and proud of it. I could hold classes to teach the timid Japanese ladies exactly where to aim the hat pins!

If I understand Japanese women... the younger ones would retaliate (buy your pins and make porcupines out of the offenders), but the older girls would just file it under 'stressful moments'.

A girl who complains a lot would not go far in her career.

It is sad, but its true.

Train groping would not work in my part of the land. Everyone here is locked and loaded! They would welcome a new form of self-defense. I will never forget a carjacker incident that happened to my neighbor. He was driving his very junky electric lime green Suburban and some asshole jumped into it, ... he (my neighbor) pointed a pistol at this jerk and he jumped out of the Suburban screaming like a girl!! Police apprehended this loser shortly afterwards. End of story.

I've heard of this behaviour before. In a country that is supposed to be high on politeness, they surely do not treat their women with any respect. Maybe you should go over their and teach them a thing or three with those hat pins.

Gives a whole new meaning to the term "prick tease." Great post, TechnoBabe.

You're kidding me?! Yes, you need to teach classes because that is just horrible that women would be treated in this way. Ugh!
