The most ridiculous thing happened to my sister, which has caused me deep, Kim Du Toit-style angst about men in America today. Check it out. She was at a WWII re-enactment, just hanging out in the evening with a bunch of guys. Keep in mind she was the only girl there, out of twenty people. So, some asshole says to her (no preamble, mind you, and she doesn't know him) "I'd like to put it in your ass." I don't know if it meets the legal definition (help me out here, Jacob Levy), but where I come from, them's fighting words. So, she did what any red-blooded American girl would do, and threw a drink at his head (in the glass) and kicked him a few times in the kneecaps with her combat boots, which are, as I recall, steel-toed. Now he makes his big mistake. He kicks her back, and hard, too.
Getting into fights with women is a losing proposition for guys, all the time. There are only three ways for it to go down. Scenario one: you fall back, avoiding windmilling arms and trying to protect your groin, while mumbling apologies and hoping she's too drunk to hurt you badly. This is the best case. Scenario two, you beat her up. Bad, because only jerks beat up women. This guy went for scenario three: you fight back hard, and then end up on the ground getting the shit kicked out of you. You hit a girl, and you got beat up by a girl. You suck. This guy was 40 years old and six feet tall. My sister (22) is not 123 pounds of ninja assasin or something; she's rather sickly, actually. But, she has the can't lose bar-fight advantage of being crazier than other people. The crazy person always wins the fight.
So, you might think this was enough humiliation for this guy. No. He and his friends decide that they want my sister banned from coming to re-enactments, but they know they don't have a very good case, so they go to the appropriate authorities and claim that she beat up four other guys as well. That's right. They were willing to pretend that a 5'5'' girl took all five of them. Those guys represent all right...represent the fucking lullaby league! Why don't they just all go down to the local tattoo shop and get "pussy" inked on their foreheads, while they're at it? My sister would never beat me up, because we get along great, plus I could totally take her, but anyway, if she did -- I would lie about it! Where is the manly pride of these grown men (all over 30, all big guys) that they would be willing to pretend some chick beat up all five of them at once? Seriously. That's just all kinds of pitiful. Look at this girl, are you scared? Well, you better be. She will come correct on your ass.
