I would offer this as one of my favorite stories of all time:

While the reporter doesn’t have her training, what got me about this story was the woman’s instinctual response to break the fucker’s nose. And she did, and the crowd backed her up. The woman is a serious power lifter who lives just north of me here in Colorado. I cannot possibly tell you how much pleasure this story gave me.

As someone who has been gang raped, assaulted WAY too many times, I am now perfectly willing to kick a man in the cojones or break his fucking face. If there is no retribution, then people will keep right on doing it. You and I and all the rest of us have every right to crack the cartilage of any fucking asshole who dares to grab us without permission. Period. Full stop. There is no fucking excuse. NONE. EVER. Not fucking ever. Thanks for this piece.
