Fetishing muscular manly men in skintight hosery

So I was waiting at the bus stop and it was windy, so I decided to stand on the corner of a building. At around the same time, this one drunk/stone looking guy walks by me, then walks back towards me. I didn't say anything, and he starts muttering some insults in Spanish. He was carrying some pebbles that he was apparently chucking at cars, and throws one at me, though misses completely (and he was like 2 feet away from me). Then he takes this beer bottle he had, and breaks it on the building wall and starts swinging it at me. It's at that point that I quickly back away.

Fortunately, I wasn't hurt throughout this whole ordeal, but goddamn, it made me feel uneasy the rest of the day, especially realizing that my new home starting tomorrow would be in Panorama City, which for those of you that know LA would know it's not exactly the most comforting place to walk around after dark. Ugh.

Any of you had any similar experiences?

Yeah, I've been there before. It's no fun.


The best thing to do is walk around during the day (preferably with or around people).

If you have to walk at night, don't stop for anything.

The only time I was ever threatened was when I was walking home evening from work and 3 guys in a white car drove by me and shouted "Go back to Africa!" I was taken aback but not really bothered. But then as I crossed the street I saw the car coming again from the distance and they drove by me again but slowly this time and yelling obscenities.

They were young though...like grade10 maybe? I was in Grade12 at the time. Not really scared but very cautious the rest of the way home.

Here's the original thread:

So I thought about it while walking and it came to dawn on me that I was really angry and I didn't know why I got so angry over such a trivial phrase. I mean I haven't heard that line since elementary school, I thought people had grown up?

Then I also realized that the same thing is happening in the states but to a different degree with illegal immigrants. Obviously there is a difference between being in a country legally and coming in illegally.

Eh so here I am. Been here all my life and only 5 in Africa. I don't remember anything about it since we left when I was 5. So...can anyone apart from native americans say its their country?

I dunno. I still feel angry about this and I can't figure out why.

A few times, worst was when a gang (6 guys maybe) jumped me outside an empty train station in Camden. They cornered me inside the station, I managed to break out to street level but they had a couple waiting at the entrance who grabbed me. Kept saying shit about how they were gonna cut me, and if i give them all my stuff it might not be as bad. In the fucking chaos and panic there was a moment when only one was holding my arm - and i was next to a main road - so i saw my chance and shoved a receipt into his other hand, said "that's a twenty thats all i've got" and in the second he looked down at it i broke his grip and ran straight into the middle of a busy four lane road, running for my fucking life until i caught up with a bus and just jumped on.

And just tonight, some cunt lifted my Ipod from my bag while it was in the cloakroom. There are some real fucking scum in London.

Just stay away from the plan (by the amtrak station) I don't think their are any nice areas in panorama city especially the mall which should be considered more of a swap meet. It still blows my mind how theres a black angus right their in the middle of the ghetto.

Yep.

I was in the main street in Edinburgh once when some punk started abusing a young indian girl, calling her all sorts of nasty things. She couldn't have been older than 12.

I told him to shut his mouth at which point in time he lunged at me. This guy was built like Kate Moss and i'm 6'4'', 240 so I don't know what he thought was going to happen.

I put him up against the wall and politely told him that hurling racial epithets at young schoolgirls was inappropriate at which time a couple of cops appeared from nowhere to separate us.

In the van they asked me what happened and I told the story at which time they asked the punk if it was true. He was proud of himself for some reason and confirmed the story and the cops let me go on the spot!

I must get it from my dad. One christmas eve he was doing some shopping and overheard some punk on his phone swearing about something or other. A lady nearby with her baby asked if he wouldn't mind toning down the language at which point he told her to fuck off.

It was then that my dad uttered the legendary line "Look mate, she's not going to fuck off, you're going to fuck off".

The gangster wannabe actually attacked my 60 year old father. During the scuffle he managed to grab the guy's phone out of his hand and hurl it down the middle of the shopping mall where upon landing it smashed into a billion pieces!

After the asshole scampered off to attend to his now shattered phone, my dad checked with the woman to see if she was ok.

It was at this time the ungrateful lady responded "I'm fine, but did you have to use such similar language"!!!!!!!

There is really only one instance worth noting:

When I was about 16 or so, me and 5 of my friends were on some baseball bleachers drinking and such. It was around midnight and in a desolated area. The closest street was about 200 yards away and the glow of the street lights gave us very little light to work with so we were all vague silhouettes at best. As we progressed with our jolly good time in the dark we saw a truck crawl up the street and eventually stop. The truck was idling for some time until its occupants got out and headed our way. We didn't think much of it as there was 5 of us and 3 of them; plus being full of liquid courage only enhanced our illusion that all was well.
When we were approached we quickly realized the 3 strangers were part of the "Indian Posse" (those in northern Canada will know what I speak of). They came in good spirits and appeared to be rather inebriated themselves. Our group of 5 was of mixed ethnicity so I thought I was in good blessing as I was hanging out with fellow native friends. I could not have been more wrong.
After a few minutes of completely asinine conversation, one of the larger creeps directly approached me and began to rough my hair up playfully, but by the same token, very aggressively. Then he sat closely to me without speaking a word while the others still bullshitted...I quickly realized a ploy was about to unfold unbeknownst to my friends. Some of them were playfully rough-housing with the others and it culminated to violence and confusion ensued as the remaining 2 friends on the bench with me were rather inebriated thus making it hard to discern the gravity of the situation.
Then, a blood-curdling scream emanated from one of my friends in the darkness and we all sobered up right quick. Apparently when one of the "I.P." held him down in his ever-so deceiving fashion, the other jumped straight onto his femur bone, snapping it clean in two. We were all prepared to defend ourselves at this point and they clearly sensed this as one of them pulled out a sawed-off shotgun (although it was so dark we couldn't be certain. We were not prepared to call their bluff). So, we stood there in absolute silence while they rummaged through our pockets to nab our cigarettes and pocket-change. Then, again, I was singled out and chased onto the baseball diamond where I was tackled and strangled from behind for what seemed like an eternity. As the blood was rushing to my head and the darkness was getting darker he ceased and kicked me a few times in the ribs. We were a fair distance from the others and took this as a sign to bolt out of there by any means necessary; so as he meandered by me waiting for me to get up I threw a handful of dirt in his direction hoping to hit him in the eyes and bolted towards the vast forestation to my immediate left. I ran and ran as he yelled at me in cree until he eventually gave up.
Apparently they left shortly thereafter and did little else to my remaining friends. I feel bad for running from my buds but I was so confused and had little fighting power in me it felt like the only solution at the time.

Well, he was quite a bit bigger than me, a tad more insane, and had a broken beer bottle. Oh, and the lack of knowing how to properly defend myself had something to do with it as well.

Never heard of the IP, but i know a lot of Indian guys that are complete assholes. A guy who was completely cool with me would brag about jumping random guys he and his friends disliked and pummeling him with this thick iron bracelet.

i haven't been attacked, but i have been followed a handful of times, once when i was driving, even. nothing ever came of it though, i either got home or ducked into a store before the person could approach me in any way.

i have to cross through the main station here to get to school, and once a couple months ago when i was walking back, i noticed this guy giving me weird looks and staring at me. even though it was broad daylight and there were people around, this guy was blatantly following me and he wanted me to know it. i thought he might attempt to follow me home if i didn't try to lose him in the station, so i ducked into a jewelry store for kids where he made a stakeout right outside the door and stared at me for another 10 minutes before finally giving up.

at one point he got in front of me on the escalator and tried to talk to me -- i didn't catch what he'd said because it was loud and my german is pretty bad. this guy was like creepo-supreme though. one of those people who has that serial-killer stare.

Not really. Where I live I've never had this happen to me. We've only had a single burglary in 10 years on my street, and nothing in the end was taken.

And no I don't live in a closed off upper class community, just a regular working-to-middle class suburb in the UK.

Believe me a lot of it is to do with the culture and atmosphere of a place. There are cities in the UK where you can see the seediness just pouring through the cracks in the wall.

For some reason these cities are always the ones where the inhabitants are most "proud" to live there and think it's the greatest place in the world. I assume it's because they've never been anywhere else. You couldn't persuade me to live somewhere like that for 10 million quid, if you have to be upper class and isolated to live comfortably in a city, fuck it, I'll go have a quality of life 2000x higher in a suburb, village or a city like HK, Rome etc.

I've been standing at a train station on my own and had a group of drunken youths trying to throw empty beer bottles at me.

I've been hit when out at night clubs, and waiting for a taxi home -- with no provocation whatsoever.

The other week -- when Prince Harry was in the news over Afghanistan -- some guy walked up to me in the street, pissed as a fart, and started calling me Prince Harry. I ignored him, but he followed me saying it and I was like "What? What are you on about?" and he said - "You're Prince Harry, I'm the taliban". To which I replied "okay" and carried on walking. He got in front of me, swung a punch, which thanks to a dodge only lightly caught me. Because this was in a crowded area of Liverpool, busy nightlife all around me, lots of people saw it, including one cockney dude - who ran over and started punching the living fuck out of him. Which is what I think I would have done myself if I weren't so drunk myself, and the police werent so on-top in the area. As I got out of the situation, I looked back down the street and random people had joined the fight, and police were nabbing people left right and center. All this, because some idiot decided I was Prince Harry.

He only called me that because I have red hair by the way. I mean... if a ginger person appears on the news, have I got to keep that in mind when I go for a fucking drink? The world is full of morons.

Liverpool isn't bad for this by the way. It used to be utter shit, and stuff like this would happen all the time -- but now its alright. Theres a good police presence on the weekend, and you can tell they're keeping things clean for this Capital of Culture deal. If you know where to go, and avoid the scally/chav clubs (where you're likely to encounter coked up dickheads), you'll have a good time. The student areas are great.

I was once walking up 2nd St. towards Market here in SF after work, and this rather big dude waiting at the bus stop deliberately tried to trip me (he saw me coming, I saw him see me), and then said "You wanna be startin' some shit?"

In a move that friends of mine will attest is totally in keeping with my character, I said "Not now, okay?" and kept walking. (It was a remarkably shitty day at work.)


I always found this incident totally out-of-step with SF in general. Market/2nd is pretty much an area that rides Union Square's retail coattails, and the financial district is just a few blocks north. Meanwhile, I spent my first year here living about a block from what's officially the Tenderloin and not ONCE was hassled anywhere near my apartment.

Yes, central Liverpool is right up there with the most pleasant cities in the UK for me. Manchester is a lot better too now.

Glasgow, Hull, London, Luton.. ugh. Seediness to the fucking maximum. Not so much Glasgow, that's just pure violence.

Got assaulted by some arab wannabe gangsters in Berlin 10 years ago. Stole my money and credit card and treatened me with a knife. Fucking scum. I hate these kind of people.

After a football game when i was walking back to the train station some drunk guy attacked me. I grabbed a empty beer barrel (one of the 5 liter ones) and threw it at him and gave him a foot kick near his head but missed closely. Then he had enough and pissed off.
