Have you experience being grope in public places like in trains, buses and other crowded places? And how did you respond when this happen to you? Just recently, I read some articles about people experiencing this. And most of them are afraid to react because they don't want to catch the attention of other people around them. In most cases, this happens in public transport vehicles.

Yuck! Of course, the girl should immediately notify the driver or conductor about this. If she keeps quiet, that means she is giving permission to the person. The girl should instantly stand up and walk away r transfer to another seat after reporting the incident to the conductor.

Yes. I agree with you cutie. If a girl is being grope, she should notify the driver or conductor or just stay away from that person. Because if she keeps quiet about this or if she don't stay away from that person, she sends a message to the person doing that that what he is doing is okay for her. Thanks for sharing cutie

I have experienced this several times. Having with these bumpers I think are most attention getter to other men. But these incidents were not really groping as in obviously groping, just a slight touch or elbowing on the side but in repetitive manner. I actually I don't react, I don't like to make a scene and turn out that I have the problem instead. I mean...like the defensive attack to the mans saying... "ewww who do you think you are?"... or "You are disgusting, do you think I will do that having that face of yours?".... I avoid this to happen so I keep quiet most of the time, and leave my space if I have opportunity transfer.

I remember we were in Rome on a bus and when we got off my wife said that a man had groped her. I asked what she wanted to do about it and she said "Lets catch another bus"

Really? Why didn't she tell you immediately when you were still in the bus that time?

I have never experience such thing since whenever I happen to travel by Public Transport whether it is Bus, Taxi or Railway, I am always with my Husband. What you have mentioned in correct there are some people (men) who likes to or want to take chance as such specially in the crowded places. If such incidence happen they should get alert and if possible catch hold of that person and shout for help. Ladies should keep in mind that whenever any lady shout for help every one will run for her help. So with daring she should fight back. Such thing will come to control (I am not saying will stop) only when ladies themselves fight back for such injustice.

Yes. I think that this incident can be controlled but can't be stopped. We have a law that prohibits this kind of act. I travel alone most of the time. And because I don't have someone to talk to, I always observe people around me. And it seems like groping is unavoidable in crowded places. Although some cases of groping are unintentional.

I am fortunate not to experience such thing. But for sure, if that does happen, I would not just be quiet about it. I'll make sure that the person who does that would be apprehended.

hi, actually i hate this groping in public places or crowded because it will call the attention of many people to you,even my partner never do that in public because we really shy to the people,maybe holding hands is enough but very short only.

I already experience this once... This was the time when my bf don't fetch me at work so i need to ride a bus to go home... Its a rush hour so i need to ride a bus and i were standing... Behind me was I thought a decent man because he wear long sleeve with necktie and a pants iyou can even think that he was a manager.... Along the way I felt that someone is pinching my thighs to I immediately get my keychain knife and swing it at my back and got it... Wounded his hands he left the bus shouting... Thank God that some old man help me and grab me before he can punch me for what I did to him...

This kind of public teasing happens to girl. In all part of the country we can see the women are the victims of public teasing. I think it is not good and the people doing it should be punished. Cheers.

Yes,I had such an experience when I was a college student.I am a male.At that time I was too shy and as tender as girls.Once I came across a man on a train who was trying to be as physically close to me as possible.He was looking for gays and had mistaken me to be one.Once he touched my private part with his elbow and kept pressing it gently,but firmly.I did not protest.I must confess,it was a thrilling and pleasing experience for me as I was having it for the first time.As there were only a few persons in the compartment,it became easier for him to make further advances.Seeing me passive he caught hold of my tool.It was too much.I got embarrassed and left the place.Thereafter I did not give him any chance to come close to me.
