Superb Opinion

  • Ignore it. Don't appear shocked or disgusted (that's what he wants). Call the police.

    Guys who do that, very often escalate to actually physical-sexual assaults. It's important to call the cops on guys who do that. They are more dangerous than they seem (or will likely grow to become dangerous over time).

    It's a matter of increasing the severity of assaults after he keeps getting away with it. But arresting a guy like this, for exposing himself in public... can sometimes shame someone into... NOT being a fucking creep going forward.

    Most important thing is to ensure your own safety. After that, the next concern is reporting this guy.

    What you ought to have done, was spoken to the bus driver. If not at the time, then as you exited the bus. You shouldn't have to put up with that just trying to get somewhere on the bus. Try and get assholes like this picked-up and off the streets. Sorry this happened to you.

    • Very often? Really? Do you have a source for that?

    • @slatyb Nope. Have you got a source suggesting I'm mistaken? I tend not to research and cite sources before giving my opinions in a reply. If I'm mistaken on that minor point... I think my answer remains exactly the same. Thanks for your contribution to the discussion.

    • "I tend not to research..." So in other words it sounded good to you so you believe it and repeated it?

  • Be shocked, surprised and scream! Outcrazy the crazy and draw attention. That way you have more witnesses for the police to report what happened.

    Too many people just ignore and walk on, leaving another to be subjected to it. Flashers are counting on people being abject

  • Probably yell something really loud that alerts everyone on the bus what he just did

  • The cops aren't going to do jack shit. Try this approach.

  • Turn HER Head. xx

  • Call the cops from a discreet vantage point.

  • Don't react. That's part of what they want.

  • Report him for indecent exposure... Simples!

    • Exactly.

  • 🔪 practice your slicing skills

  • Best reaction is no reaction. Just calmly look away. The guy is flashing you to get a reaction from you, and if you don't give him one, he'll just stop.

  • You go to the driver, have him call the police and have him arrested for public indecency. The stupid ass!!!

  • Act like you'll touch it, but then grab his zipper and yank it up full force. Have fun, asshound

  • Be calm, i know is difficult in that situacion , tell the driver about what happened and he will call the police... stay next to the driver till the police come. No leave the bus because the flasher
    would start following you

  • Well, he could be held on charges of Public Nudity, Sexual Harassment, etc.

  • just say "Smol pp energy"

  • Look away and ignore them. Then rapport them to the police

  • Lol you read my mind. I was going to ask a similar question. Just treat it as another day in the world

  • i would say don't react. cause a reaction is what he wants.

  • Point laugh out loud and kick him in the nards

    • That's assault (although you'd probably not be prosecuted), but the first part could work.

    • @goaded not when he flashes his privates. That can be compared to self defense.

  • No reaction. If he gets close, then she should chose violence.

  • With a quick camera click on her phone for evidence once she alerts the cops

  • Maybe just cover eyes or laugh at the guy and point. Maybe make him feel bad or awkward than make other then him people uncomfortable.

  • She should have him arrested.

  • kick him in the balls
