back to article Tattooed Swedish devil girls sexually molest cyclist

Swedish cops are on the look-out for a quintet of tattooed girls who dragged a 50-year-old man off his bicycle, pulled down his trousers and smalls and "sexually molested" the poor bloke. The incident happened on 8 July in Örebro, central Sweden, the Aftonbladet newspaper reports. One of the gang - described as 5' 7" tall and …

    If a lady was assaulted in a similar manner there would be a major investigation and it would be treated very seriously but as it's a man being assaulted by multiple women that seems less serious?

Of course, calling the station for advice and back up will be met with the comment "Roger and out", and of course everyone will want to examine the entire body of evidence.

    sexual molestation...

    Although I suppose I wouldn't mind if a number of young very attractive girls came up to me and made it clear that they would very much get to know me better, especially if it was one of those hypothetical situations where no one ends up pregnant, or with a funny-sounding disease, or in the bushes uncounceous less wallet,I don't think I or anyone else on this site would like very much to be pushed off their bike, pinned to the ground and groped by a number of females, especially if they are kind of scary and you don't find them all that attractive.

    'Rape' fantasies are common with both men and women, but these are _fantasies_, more based around having sex with a handsome/beautiful stranger who 'makes' you do something you wanted to anyway, like the girl that you fancied from the office taking your trousers down and matter into her own hands at the christmas party. If the somehwat older and not so very attractive canteen lady (who you find scary) drags you into an empty office after you passed out from drinking too much, and removes your underwear and closes the door... you probably would mind. Possibly mutilated genitalia and pictures of your wedding tackle doing the office rounds by email withstanding.

    Seeing as the poor chap reported this to the police the incident probably fell into the later category.

    If you really wish to be molested sexually, then I believe that there are quite a few heavy female-only gangs in most of the major uk cities (well, I know of some in Glasgow and London anyway), who would probably grant you your wish without you shelling out for a ticket to Sweden. If you enjoy big women with lots of experience (and the scars to prove it) all clad in lovely polyester then you might just be in for a treat ;o)

    You can even give the old 'reg an exclusive afterwards :o)

    Not necessarily what you think

    The original artice is here (in Swedish):

    I can see that a lot of people here are wishing they were in Sweden being 'harrassed' by young swedish beautiful girls.

    Let me tell you this, in Sweden and in Scandinavian countries in general, women are free in their thoughts, but that includes themselves, so they are actually much more demanding on the man than in other countries.

    Without knowing in detail, as the original article doesn't say, I don't think the girls were 'nice' to the guy in _any_way_, but they were really _harrassing_ him!

    I don't want you do be discouraged to meet and interact with Scandinavian girls, though I am myself ;-) but don't you ever think it is a walk in the park! You won't find any women that are more self aware and independent than a girl from Denmark, Norway and Sweden!

    And I have to say I'm in the same situation as some of the other posters - having a bit of difficulty understanding the situational details of how this could happen. Certainly a Playmobil re-enactment would clear things up. Oh, hey, and it's Friday tomorrow, how about that?...

    There IS an IT angle!

    After the first few waves of failed offshore projects, there is more acceptance that the best/economical global location for development and support is often closer to home than India. I know of at least one project that was pulled from India and moved to Sweden to save on overall cost (Quality, telecoms, power, travel, time), and even Indian outsource companies are setting up shop in places like Ireland.

    In an ever more complex global model, Executives need to consider the cultural consideration to success. Even before this story, IT folk would be happier to travel to Sweden to make sure a global project succeeds.

    So start “banging” the drum for IT in Sweden.. and lets see some t-shirts with “my project went to Sweden and all I got…”

It wasn't after they had gone that he knew they weren't going to end with a murder or at least take a souvenir (and I'm not talking about an ear here), it has happened that way before! I recall a local case here where a group of women sexually assaulted a guy by nail-gunning his knob to his belly* - more than one nail too. OUCH!

    @ Chris Harden

    that's two things

  81. Steve Roper

    He was right to go to the police...

    ...and the police were right to treat this as a serious assault and investigate accordingly.

    I was sexually assualted in a similar manner when I was 14 years old by two girls right out in the schoolyard. What scarred me from that experience was not merely the sexual assault itself, but the fact that I WAS PUNISHED with a week's detention for swearing at the girls while trying to get them off me - that and the fact that the two girls got away scot-free. And two weeks after this, the Year 9 sex-education class called in a feminist "professor"; we were assembled in the school gym, boys on the left, girls on the right. This feminist made the girls out to be innocent little victims and told them that if a boy said this to them or did that to them, they could go and talk to this women's counsellor or that women's-only support group, while she told the boys that we were not allowed to say this or do that to the girls, and gleefully described the punishments that would be inflicted on us if we did. Coming right after the assault, that pretty well did it for me.

    (Sarah Bee, if you want to know why my comments on these subjects are always so virulently opposed to feminism, now you know.)

    So you see I'm in a position to understand what this guy felt and why he went to the police. But the worst perpetrators of the double standard under discussion here aren't the feminists, its all the obviously sex-deprived and desperate commentards in here wanting it to happen to them. This perpetuates the myth that men are only interested in sex and will take it any way they can, and it undermines the position of those of us who actually have brains that do more than react to our gonads. If you guys are really that desperate, go and pay a hooker, but don't sell our (or your) rights and dignity down the river just so you can get laid!

    @ those people righteously complaining about it being sexual assault

    ...and wondering why it's a sniggering article here, perhaps you could ask the male journalist and the first dozen or so presumably male commenters why they didn't perceive it that way.

    Because if you're trying to suggest because everyone would be up in arms if it was a woman being assaulted, that's right. We (should) know it's disgusting when women get assaulted - raising awareness of the effects of sexual assault is one of feminism's achievements. But don't blame feminism for the idiocy of certain men (and some women, maybe) who think that sexual assault is a joking matter, no matter what the gender of the person concerned.
