Contortions: Exhibit A
A grown ass man dressed like a caricature of a woman maced a little boy on a subway. That same grown ass man talked shit about how fat a woman and her boys were, although he is quite fat himself. Instead of walking completely away from the uncivil children (who may or may not have been initially provoked), that grown ass man was determined to stay within earshot to keep the argument going. Then when he could escape out an open door, he sprayed mace on the boy. The man should be charge with assault. A grown ass man has no business attacking a child, including a loudmouth male child. Men always resort to violence, –always.
In typical acrobat fashion, people have ignored the male privilege the grown ass man invoked when he insulted the woman by calling her fat, ugly, and mental (all tropes used against females by males) and utilized his physical presence (taller and probably stronger, at times he menacingly towered over them) to intimidate. In justifying the immature and illegal activity of the man in drag, people have completely glossed over how threatened a grown ass man (dressed in drag or not) can be to an unprotected woman, particularly a woman who society does not normally listen to, and instead, focused on how the immature man was oppressed (AS IF!) by a poor just as frustrated as everyone else family. Any other time people will talk about how it is never acceptable to assault a child. NEVER!
There should be charges filed against this asshole. Of course, the police will probably not care what happens to a poor (most likely) fat black woman and/or her poor fat black children.
The contortions have got to hurt.
