Interesting perspective. I never thought groping and (a perception of) bad dancing were equivalents.

Good one, DNorwood! Well, not equivalents, yet a common thread of idiocy on some level. However, given that my specialty was as a therapist dealing with cases of sexual abuse, I view groping as an unacceptable boundary violation. That said, I personally would have dealt better with a grope than a blowpipe jammed into the roof of my mouth!

I'm not sure which annoys me more -having random strangers ask what's under the kilt - or that the fit ones no longer ask!



(fun fact: grey hair grants you one 'super-power' - you become completely invisible to women!

I couldn't get my end away if I was a millionaire handing out free Italian shoes...)

Both are damaging in different ways. The groping has obvious emotional repercussions. The blow pipe could have done a lot of physical damage if there had been more force exerted, it had a different trajectory...

At Renaissance festivals I've frequently had ladies walk up and claim to be kilt inspectors as they try reaching for the hem to sneak a peak. I gruffly stop them with "back off", and my wife chimes in with more colorful language.

Once at a military formal dinner (US) a drunk female service member groped me. To my knowledge they received a reprimand from their chain of command, and I received an apology.
