hypothetical questions

when I'm walking home from a bar i often run scenarios in my head. what if, dot, dot, dot. they are usually amplified if something out of the ordinary catches my attention. As I was walking home by myself from a wonderful evening with _kaiser_, grubbybastard, pixelstud and fixxwisdom I noticed that some old muscle car was trailing behind me, pacing me. It's menacing churning engine sounded more like a boat than a car. As I walked up 18th the car idled along behind me. more than likely it was some guy who found the pickings of the Collingwood fruit loop "drive through" slim to none and was expanding his search for quick sex. I didn't like it. It made me nervous, I thought of straight frat boys in a hazing ritual of "beat up the faggot in the Castro". I went on the defensive.

Which brings up my hypothetical question. So you are attacked by some asshole, if there were a gun that you wrestled away from you attacker and shot him in self defense, you tell the cops. But come on, that's not going to happen outside the movies. More than likely the attacker will have a knife or bat... or think he can beat the shit out of you with his fists. But you are a faggot who is prepared (or should be) for this and unlike him are fighting for your life. So one of the first things you do is fake like you are going to punch him in the gut while shaping your other hand into a loving piece sign. Your re-enactment of every Three Stooges skit goes awry as he fails to salute his nose with his hand and your fingers gouge into his eyes. You run to safety as your attacker screams blinded on the ground.

Do you call the cops, thus linking yourself to this asshole who attacked you, who could come after to get revenge... maybe even file a lawsuit, you might get him thrown in jail. Or do you go home and feel like a victim and a criminal, but feel safe in knowing he doesn't have a police report with your name on it?

If they did get out of that car. They certainly had no idea who they were picking on. I imagine that if you ever got that mad, you would be like the tasmanian devil.

A whirl wind of fury.

I'd call the cops (especially awesome if they show up while he's still on the ground writhing in pain), then make sure criminal charges get filed against him, then maybe even trump up some civil charges (emotional distress, "I can't sleep since the attack, and my work has suffered!", etc.) - basically make his life a living hell.

I love this question. I would call the police. I would want this person to be exposed. I would wait for the police to get there so he could see who gave him the Moe eye-poke. I also have this Gay Mafia fantasy for the basher set.
