In such a case, I would fight against it too and not pay up just so some materialistic b*tch can get the latest fashion MacDonalds bag (LV)


well, it doesnt need to be said, but groping unless explicitly asked for is just asking for trouble. unfortunate as it is, the onus is on you to prove that you didnt do it.

yes, that is the case in australia if a girl crys rape after you have banged her. there has been known cases where people lose their house/livelihoods because of a false claim, yes thats right, $500k to lodge a defense. compound the fact that the gov't will not reimburse you even if it is found that the claims were false.

I havent had to pay for a grope/sex, so im not going to start now. However, one should think if it is worth it to pay for troubles to go away. unless you want your face/name plastered across the newspaper, sometimes it is easier to just pay. like i mentioned earlier, males have been known to lose alot more than the 10-20k needed to make the matter go away.

It looks like some Singaporean MEN have turned down money.

Hmm, iPhone5 just came out, and Galaxy Note2 rather soon.. You might see a lot of local men in the next couple of weeks getting molested!

I don't think so--they usually get their phones via recontracting or swapping/trading with someone who will recontract who doesn't give an iF*** or sF***. Those who are willing to buy phones full cost probably have enough principles not resort having their butts pinched.

I still say it's for your typical expensive girly stuff.

And it's not just foreigners: http://www.tnp.sg/content/cabby-terrorised-teen-girls

This has really gotten out of hand.

There was a much longer article on this when it came out but I can't find it now.

You're an idiot and contributing nothing useful to a conversation about a topic of legitimate concern to expat men.

Hmmm, if it's a foreigner who is accused it's the FT at fault, if it's a cab driver, then comments point straight at the females!

Interesting

Ummm, I don’t think that a girl would come up to you and explicitly ask you to grope her or to touch her or something like that. No one asks for it, it is just a natural step of human courtship. A male and a female are talking, dancing, and, well if they are dancing a man MUST touch the girl or she will think that he is not interested. As I said, all natural and acceptable posturing.

The problem is that some girls are relying on this to falsely cry molest. Not talking about girls who are actually molested but the girls who wait for the opportunity to abuse the law for financial gain.

So again to quote the above, if such a girl came up to you and explicitly asked you to touch her ass, for example, “because it makes her excited and she thinks you are hot”
