Self Professed “She-Hulk” Confronts Boston Subway Masturbator

According to last Saturday’s Boston Herald, a 24-year-old woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, managed to single handedly capture a man that masturbated in front of her on a packed B-Line trolley.

The subway heroine told the Boston Herald:

“This guy was just being a real creeper.”

She said that he followed her through the trolley and stood over her while she was sitting down.

“I looked up and felt awkward, so I looked down.”

Then she realized that his penis was exposed and he was touching himself. The 24-year-old was so infuriated by his behavior that she describes her self as switching into “She-Hulk” mode. She loudly drew attention to what the man was doing and received no support from her fellow passengers, one trolley rider even shrugged.

So, in an impulsive moment she lunged at the man as he tried to exit the train at Packard’s Corner. She held onto the man with one hand and reprimanded him until law enforcement arrived. She said:

“I’ve had enough of being harassed on the street. I’m tired of it and I want it to end. It was the last straw.”

After his arrest, Michael Galvin, 37, tried to defend himself by saying the “packed and jostling” train made his pants fall down. He was charged with open and gross lewdness.

What a courageous lady! Here’s a big Hollaback! well done for standing up for what’s right and not being afraid to speak out. You are awesome.

    No one did anything when I was groped on the street either. I hit the guy with my backpack, but landed only a glancing blow. It didn’t occur to me to hold him.

    Anyway, I don’t put up with it anymore, either. Good for you.
