When it comes to defending yourself against a serious attacker, I think wasp spray would be perfectly legal.

The weels on the bus go round and round, round and round, round and round~
Anyways, being serieus and telling him to back off is a good thing to do, if he stills bothers you, you can try asking a cop that a guy is sexuel harrassing you :l Get the mofo arrested whooo. But yeah carry some tool with you at all times like peper-spray, a lot of shit can happen in the world.
And here is the primary difference between America and Japan. Anyway:When everyone was unloading the bus, he touched my butt. I held up the line and turned around in his face and yelled at him, "You will [i]never[i], ever touch me again, you understand that?" He stumbled backward a bit and some other dude started swearing at him in defense of me, which seemed to take the creepy guy's attention away (s he considered beating the crap out of the nice guy)a from me long enough for me to walk the heck away to a tourist spot.
You took "actions speak louder than words," flipped it, and did a verbal one-hit K.O. That's awesome and I wish I'd have seen it.
I'm glad you eventually did that, but in the future, wouldn't it be best to react within the first two touches? I mean, the more he gets away with it, the more confident he'll get.
this would be an awesome anime scene even better if they did that thing they did with bat man "gotham knight"
Matt: probably, but the context of him touching me was ehhhh before: not entirely wrong. I was listening to my headphones, and he melts wanting to talk to me, so be would tap my knee to let me know that he was talking. But strangely enough, when he moved closer to me he stopped poking me altogether because he assumed that our proximity implied that I was listening ... I wasn't. He didn't touch me again until he decided to grab my butt, wherein I lost it on him. And then peripheral dude was like, "Yo, you better leave her the f*ck alone," and the creeper guy decided that the comment merited a physical comeback to the person who said it.
Then I went to tourist spots, but they started to bother me, so I went into a couple art studios/shops and looked around for a while before going to the park. I had a bus to catch, but I missed it so I could avoid running into the creeper guy.

EDIT: I mean, this is the state where Palin tried (? Did that rape kit thing pass, Seefs? I forget.) to legalize rape of the poor.
Yeah, uh, the police here aren't the best, even when there's clear evidence. My mom's car was broken into, and nearly a thousand dollars'-worth of items were stolen; and even though there was video evidence of the thief, the police refused to do anything.
I'm not scared of public transportation (I'm actually at the bus station now), but that guy had made me uncomfortable enough to avoid waiting around for the next bus. Sure, this is a definite problem, but security and police aren't as helpful as one would hope, and calling him out on it was probably the most I could do at the time. There's a ton of incest and rape cases in the state, but it isn't dealt with the way that it should be.
And I'm not sure about Palin; she's not in office anymore, and I hadn't heard of it getting passed. I should probably check, though.
