Serious question that doesn't seem to fit anywhere
Something is bugging me about an altercation I witnessed the other day at a city bus stop. There were two young woman from the neighborhood waiting for the bus at the stop by the grocery store. And a man came down the block to the bus stop. Maybe late 30s — he was wearing a hoodie so I’m not real sure of his age. He pulled a suitcase with a bedroll on it, and appeared to be one of the transient types that pass through. I wasn’t paying a lot of attention, but before long, he was ranting at one of the women. Very ugly stuff. He got right up in her face, and there was only anger and fervor in his. He accused her of “corrupting” him by showing her butt crack. Went on and on about how terrible it was of her. There was something in his face, voice and manner that was very disturbing. The women giggled, and largely ignored him, but at one point pretended to call police. That did not deter him. Then the bus came. I got on. The driver would not allow either the man or the women on her bus because they were in dispute. So I don’t know how it resolved.
But then I began to think that he might have been a strict Islam fundamentalist. Wouldn’t that make sense? To be so offended by seeing a woman’s behind and thinking it was an insult directed at him?
And then I worried about the stability of this guy and what it might mean in terms of terrorism. There’s nothing I could report. It was days ago, and I have no real description. But I would like to know if my thesis makes sense, in case I run across him again or hear that the women involved have been accosted.
Please note that this is not a discriminatory question in any way. He was a white man.PADemD likes this
