Paying the Pied Piper

According to the Washington Times, on January 19, a 28-year old female U.S. sailor on shore leave in Dubai took the bus from the Mall of Dubai only to have the bus driver attempt to rape her at knifepoint after she rebuffed his sexual advances. She disarmed him and then beat him into submission.

The man was reportedly charged with “attempted rape, threatening to kill, assault and consuming alcohol illegally.”

Funny, I thought these guys claimed to believe that all Western (or uncovered, or unaccompanied, or whatever juvenile notion) women are sluts. Perhaps this one carried a knife merely out of an abundance of caution. Anyway, fat lot of good it did him.

I suppose this is the downside of socializing men to measure their self-worth through sexual accomplishments. As with other social diseases, it’d be better to change that socialization than to let it stew and then ask women to fend for themselves.
