so last night at the show i was at some dude groped my ass hella forcefully and on purpose. it wasn’t the type of “we’re at a show and it’s crowded, our bodies may touch” kind of butt-touch, it was a “i’m going to use these crowded conditions to try and mask that i’m forcefully grabbing and scooping up your butt cheek.” i kind of acted instinctively by turning around and punching him like 4-5 times in the face/neck/head as hard as i could and saying “don’t fucking touch me.” i think it kind of worked because he disappeared after that. but idk, i’m kind of lucky he disappeared, or that he didn’t respond w/ physical violence. this is the second time i’ve punched in response to having my ass groped at a punk show. i know i’m not alone, and it’s annoying. girls and other non-men get so much shit for even being at punk shows, for “not being able to handle the pit,” etc. but then they have to deal with shit like this? come the fuck on. you talk about unity and respect but nobody gave a shit that this happened to me. this is fucking unacceptable.
What a fucking scumbag! I sincerely hope you badly injured him. That sort of behavior is unacceptable anywhere but even more so at punk/hardcore shows.
