He Slapped her back at the Light Rail Station


I imagine female to male violence  has always been around.  You see lot of it on social media ,where a female or females will taunt a male and hit him .  Random men on the subway to Bus drivers.  Females slapping often hitting men as hard as they can. Usually, these are young women, often traveling in packs.

A few months ago, a very young woman cut in line at the R Street Safeway  When the man in front of her objected, she called him a racist.  I was behind him and his wife and said  he wasnt a racist, and she was wrong.  As I was talking to wife, the young woman  pushed past him and his wife and attempted to chest bump me and ordered me to stop talking!  I’m double her weight and stand more than a foot taller.   I left the line to defuse the situation .  She told the man in front of her, she would be waiting for him outside.  As she and her freinds were leaving the store, the very young woman kicked a display  getting the attention of the security guard.

At an early age, males are taught never to strike a woman.  NEVER !  There isn’t an asterisk here.  It doesn’t matter if she attacks you.   You shall NEVER hit a woman!   I have seen alcohol fueled women attack the bouncers at nightclubs, often without provocation,  Young women in groups attacking men, provoking men.  Men who retailate are often restrained and sometimes attacked by other men.

Recently, there was a commotion at the 12th Light Rail Station, a thirty-ish woman was slapping kicking, yelling and biting a late thrity-ish male.  Angry, yes, out of control, yes.   There were two groups, one group was horrified and the other entertained, capturing the drama with their cell phones.  You could feel some of the slaps.  As the male was attempting to protect himself from the blows, she was screaming and threatening to get other males she knew to “beat his ass” .

After landing some stinging slaps, he slapped her, knocking her to the ground.  None of the men stepped in.  When she stood up, her nose was bleeding.  Her voice grew higher and stronger than before ,the words she used were unrecognizable.  As she walked towards him, he raised his hand.  She said, “he would be dead later” for hitting a woman!   She called him faggot and a punk for hitting a woman.  She was crying now.  She looked towards the four women for sympathy, and couldn’t fine a sympathetic eye.

As a light rail trail entered the station, she started screaming at him again. She screamed as they boarded the train. Suddenly he jumped off the train through the rear doors as they were closing and started walking towards downtown.

One of the men, at the station said “these females are crazy, you can’t go just walkin up to some man and start wailing on him and expect him to stand there and take it!”  “I would have beat her ass the second time she hit me!”

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
