In a comments thread over at Dean’s World, responding to a commenter who wrote that women should simply yell “Masher!” and hit the offender across the face if pressed against or fondled by a stranger:
That’s called vigilantism…So if you wish the people not to descend into tribalism and lawlessness, you would have to stop advocating ‘take care of it yourself’ for an official government law enforcement policy.
Oh for pity’s sake. Is it ‘vigilantism’ when a kid punches a bully in the nose?
Yes, of course.
In my school we seek to ensure that he does not have to do so.
I’m not making this up. There are people who really think this way.
