Back in time closet gays often employed female company as covers...

But he could be right, actually. I've only visited one gay/mixed nightclub, but everybody except a few girls acted remarkably civilized. The worst thing that happened was a couple of gays politely asking if I wanted to dance. Leather gay clubs might be more hardcore, but there I guess neither women nor straight males are allowed.

As a Woman Was Raped, Train Riders Failed to Intervene, Police Say

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/10/17/us/riders-watched-woman-raped-septa.html

tough call, I s'pose; I mean... you don't wanna intervene these days, might offend someone in the process

(or have we actually reached the point, where people have become so desensitized by media that they have literally stopped caring about others)

That's a good point. It's already gotten to the new normal that if a brown or black person commits a crime, it's racist if you arrest them or try to blame them for their actions. The world has gone crazy.

A bit rich (as usual) of the journalists to shame the passengers after publishing countless articles about defunding the police, racism against criminals and victims that got punished in court for defending themselves.

I think it's the effect of always being surrounded by strangers in cities. Then when something happens nobody even thinks about asking their "fellow" passengers about cooperating, instead everybody sit alone paralyzed with fear - just like society wants it.

we live in the most interesting of times... as per incident, I do happen to live in the city and I have had to use physical force and/or my own stupid face, to remove people from certain situations when I have encountered people in distress

then again, I'm the kinda guy who told 'random black dude' in a black, unmarked van outside my balcony to "crank the f*cking music down, people are tryin' to sleep" (and it was past 9PM.)

it's all about moral courage; if there are more than one person witnessing a situation where someone is clearly in distress, then someone need to step up and take charge of the situation, in order for others to find the courage to do the same

what separates us from primates is our ability to assess any given situation, given a wide variety of very complex parameters and thanks to our mirror-neurons, we are all quite capable of feeling emotionally distressed by seeing others in pain and thus act accordingly

the fact that we've reached a point where we've let complete imbeciles run the show, due to their own ineptitude of dealing with whatever social media they are currently being offended by, is past the point of absurd: we need to have adult people making adult decisions, based on actual reality, not a bunch of internet-offendee's with opinions and millions of 'subscribers'

When I've done something everybody else just stayed passive (nothing too serious, maybe they didn't feel the need). Perhaps one needs to establish contact with a fellow passenger before jumping in, and then both convey the need for assistance and give a trustworthy impression, so the assisting guy won't fear you'll drag him into a fight and then bail out yourself.

I suppose they must be hit by reality themselves before realizing that their social media friends won't help...

To balance the rotten apples, I should add that my African friends and girlfriends have shown way more resourcefulness in situations than most, often just by using verbal skills.

You have to be careful out there since some people act like primates. They let their anger consume them and in the flash of a moment, ruin the rest of their lives. This is why people fear getting involved.

true that and especially in this day and age when kids are gunning each-other down with AK's like it's going outta style

I do restrain myself quite a lot more these days than I did back when I was younger, but at the same time I demand peace and quiet in my own neighborhood and that guy had been hanging out playing loud music one night too many

*sigh*

I don't know... I should probably move back out on the country-side... I have a really hard time getting along with people who can't behave proper
