Parkinsons pocket pervert

A very funny letter in 7Days on the problem of beach perverts. Interestingly, this didn't happen on the "Russian" beach, but down south:

"I’ve had an interesting few last visits to the beach, near the Hilton. Last visit there was a man who seemed to have a severe case of Parkinsons (please I mean this in nicest way as I can’t really say in this column what he was doing) going on in his right trouser pocket.

"This problem seemed to get worse whenever a woman in a bikini walked past. When I looked at him to let him I knew what he was doing, he just didn’t care, he kept on going. What is the right thing to do about this?"


"Disgruntled" wants to know where to go to avoid this kind of situation. Sadly, probably only the Ladies' Club beach.

In other news: well deserved medals for forty police officers from three different emirates who safely rescued a young girl from her kidnappers. A reminder of why cooperation remains so important.

I don't see the point being first if you have nothing to say.
As for the beach incident, I find it useful not to look at people too closely. Unless you're sure they're 'safe'.

A similar experience...from a distance...
I've picked up my mobile and warned him that i'll call the "shoortah" right away, but this one was a Pathan/Paki and he fled...

A blogathon is being organised on 7 March against street harassment like this, SD.

Bloggers who feel strongly about such public perversion can join hands and blog about this. More info is here:

The Blank Noise Project

It would be great if you could post about it in your blog. Although this effort is rooted in India, I believe such a project is also needed in the UAE.

Maybe the guy just lost his house key?

Seriously though, what do ppl expect? These poor guys in the low low (I assume) income bracket don't have any access to women and no privacy since their accommodation is probably shared with 20 or so other blokes so what are they to do?

Oh that's right, I forgot, they're poor and low class and therefore subhuman therefore they shouldn't have any right to or need to experience anything sexual at all.

Perhaps the rented blowup dolls weren't such a bad idea after all :p

Such high praise just makes it all worthwhile - I felt I had to share it.

I expect there will be plenty of equally supportive recommendations to come ;)

So, if I say something completely obscene and insulting, my name will go up there? ;)

I like it, but it's as if it has slowed down the site a bit -- not sure what is going on there. Just feels as though the site is a bit more sluggish nowadays.

You mean technically, as in slower loading times or figuratively, as in less comments?

If the former, I'm not sure it's the quotes, if anything it is the long list of Neocounter country flags on the right. I might have to remove/adjust that somehow.

If the latter, that may be because I disabled anon comments. Some people have clearly signed up for Blogger names, but of course not all.

Yes, I believe neocounter is doing your site a disservice. My FireFox browser chokes on the site, though Safari doesn't seem to have an issue. Not sure what the Windows folks experience.

You can set the Neocounter to only report the Top 20 countries - that may make it faster.

Worth a shot.

Done! Should you be curious about my Senegal or Liberia visitors stats, just email me ;)

Dammit - I tried setting it to 20 - it doesn't work (I save, but nothing changes).

I also tried removing the flags, same problem.

** I don't argee that because they are poor guys in low income brackets means that they can **** - off in public. Anybody who sees anyone acting in such away should report them to the police straight away !

I can relate.
And I wasn't even on the beach, just sitting at the bus stop in Karama (yes, I use the public transport and I'm proud of it).

And this man comes over and sits on the far end of the bench and fiddles around in his trousers.

I was reading a book and I looked up and told him if he doesn't leave, I was going to pull it right off. And stomp on it.

He took one look at my long nails and scurried off.
And that was the end of it.

Hey secretdubai, it's good to see you're still going strong.

I've been advertising your blog to everyone I know :D

Why didn't the lassy in question just call hotel security, or pick up her mobile (no pockets in the bikini? someone in Dubai always has a phone - you could borrow one) and call the police...
