“Grope Groups” in Japan

I just read about Chikan (groping) Groups at JapanProbe.com. I knew there were some perverts but damn, I didn’t realize it was this serious. There are websites dedicated to chikan and ball-less motherfuckers give tips on how to grope females, the best places to grope them and even arrange meetups for group groping.

It has gotten so out of hand that the police now have special task forces to combat it.

On one hand, I’m happy it’s not “worse” than groping. Luckily, the scum who opt to molest women on trains limit it to fondling and nothing more sever. In the west, I feel if I heard a story like this on the news that it’d be of rape.

But on the other hand, I can’t help but think that because it’s only fondling, and because the attackers don’t use weapons (as far as I can tell, they just get close to the women), why the fuck aren’t these women kneeing them in the balls, poking their eyes out, stabbing them with pens or just screaming “PERVERT!”? The silence gives these cowards the confidence to continue their perverse activity.

But that also comes from it being a different culture. Women here don’t always feel empowered to defend themselves physically or audibly. It’s a shame but their second class citizen status gives their attackers more free reign to let their hands roam.

Anyway, here’s a clip (with English Captions) of the news piece:
