The Ass Grab — The Washington Post, 1/9/2011

Okay, so “The Ass Grab” was my working title for this essay, I pitched it using the more sedate title “The Grab”, and The Washington Post ran it with the title “Giving Street Harassers All The Attention They Want — And More”.

It’s about an experience I had in Marrakech this past summer, and the particular challenge that street harassment poses to a cultural-relativist traveler.

  1. Read your article in Wash.Post. 1/9/11 Bogus !! Let me guess. Youre one of those “Victims” where ever you go.
    Guess we all love to flatter ourselves !!

  2. Hmm, I can’t imagine how you got “victim” from what I wrote. But thanks for the comment.
