I took the N-Judah into the office today. I really like taking the train. There’s a peacefulness to it that isn’t physical (way to many people), but instead mental (not driving == not thinking).
Today however that blew up.
I got on the train, and noticed that a woman and man were talking to each other. Well… He was trying to talk to her, and she kept answering in short, curt answers.
She was getting ready to hop off at 19th, and as the doors opened he jumped up, hugged her, kissed her, and off she went.
I wasn’t actually sure if that was a scene out of a horror movie, or if he was the star of some teenage fantasy where the shy looking guy jumps up and kisses a girl.
And I actually don’t know if this part matters or not, but she had large breasts, and she wasn’t hiding them.
Full disclosure: I definitely noticed her for her physical assets. I am not claiming to be holier than the male character I am describing. I did not take any physical action toward either character.
So I’ve shared this story with my dad and brother, Micky, Genevieve, and Ashley as well.
Everyone agrees that the guy crossed over the line.
However no one agrees with the true border of where the line is nor do they agree on the severity of offense.
Sparing you a long replay of the day’s conversations I’ll leave the conclusion that I came to at – Humans are not as removed from our animal ancestry as we think, and the societal structures that we have to prevent these actions aren’t as strong as we’d like them to be.
More to come in the next few days I’m sure.
