Before I get to the horrible bit in this blog – I mean the bit on that dark lonely street in Birmingham – let’s start all nice and innocently, shall we?


September: season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, according to Keats. Children and teenagers back at school, summer almost over. Another year in the cycle of annual routines that catapult us along life’s fast-track lane, tossing all regrets and warnings out the window, out into the high-speed wind that snatches them up and throws them still further away. Out of reach of our past.


“I wish I could re-live my last two years of school,” my recently-graduated daughter mused aloud the other day, probably inspired by the hordes of Polish students who were shuffling along in scattered groups through the centre of Krakow, smartly dressed and loudly chattering amongst themselves as they made their way to school for the first day of term.


But my daughter wasn’t musing in a fond, nostalgic way. No, it was more in the vein of: I would have done things so differently, had I known then what I do now. A very older-and-wiser sort of musing.


How many of us haven’t been assailed by those kind of thoughts as the years snatch us along, prodding us forward, laughing at our pathetic struggles on the way? Is there anyone out there who doesn’t wish that they could impart their older-and-wiser knowledge, their accumulated experiences, upon their younger selves, barely touched as yet by life’s bruises and learning curves? Wouldn’t it be terrific to be able to stand behind our youthful counterpart – invisible, of course – and give a gentle tap on the shoulder, guiding, advising, admonishing, warning…


I wouldn’t do that, if I  were you, you could say to your fresh-faced, parallel selfwho isn’t listening, of course.


No, I wouldn’t go upstairs with that 17-year-old guy. He might be drop-dead gorgeous and know all  the right things to say at the teenage party you’re at right now, but if you go upstairs with him, as he’s urging you to do, in search of a quiet place – maybe that small spare room where all the coats are tossed in disarray on the floor, and … NO! I said do NOT go in that spare room! This will NOT end well; you’ll only feel wretched and humiliated at school the next day, wishing the floor could swallow you up next time he passes you by in the corridor without so much as a “Hi there …”


Why oh why didn’t you listen to me? Why didn’t you listen to your older-and-wiser self? Did you really think it was true love? At sixteen? You green, simpering IDIOT! Sorry, but it has to be said. Next time, be more careful, okay? Promise? Especially before accepting any marriage proposals.


Or bigger, more sinister warnings. Much, much more sinister.


Like when I was on my way back to my Hall of Residence in Birmingham, having just survived my first full day away from home. My brand new life as a real grown up student! And then I spotted that lonely phone booth over there, on that equally lonely side street. At nine o’clock on a Saturday evening in late September. Why did I choose that particular side street to walk down, at that time of evening, all on my own, at the tender age of eighteen?


Oh, yes – I wanted to phone my mother, that’s why. Like a good, caring daughter. I wanted to let her know that everything was fine, that I’d had a really nice first day as a student of music in the big, towering, scary city of Birmingham.


Scary? Hah! I didn’t know the word existed, back then. Until entering that phone booth.


NO! I want to cry out to you now, to my innocent, wide-eyed, smiling younger self. Don’t go in there! Don’t go in that phone booth! You don’t know what’s going to happen to you if you do … for God’s sake, Wendy, just go back to the main road, back to your hall of residence … DON’T GO IN THAT PHONE BOOTH!


But you didn’t listen to me.


I yelled and yelled at you … but then I got swept along the highway right back across the miles and the years, back to 2018. So I was forced to abandon you, my poor younger self. Here I am, safely back at my desk in Krakow; and there you are, stuck in Birmingham on that desperately dark, quiet side street, about to go into that badly lit, urine-smelling, forbidden phone booth…


So you went in.


“Hi, Mum,” you said cheerily, smiling at the grubby receiver as your – that is, our – mother picked up the phone at the other end of the telephone line, way across the miles in Preston. “Everything’s fine, don’t worry about me. I’ve had a great day! I even managed to – ”


And then the door to the phone booth jerked opened.


Your shock was palpable when you saw him. I can still feel it. When you saw the looming, shadowed face, the wild whites of the eyes, glinting in the mid-evening dark.


“What the hell – ” you spluttered, trying to be brave.


But then you saw the second one. Even taller. Even meaner. And the knife. Oh, God, that sleek, gleaming, glistening, beautiful blade, about to become the ugliest thing you had ever encountered thus far in your unscathed little life…


You turned to stone. That cliché is perfect for such moments. No apologies.


Wendy? Wendy, what’s going on?” our poor mother shrieked into the redundant receiver that swung on the end of the cord, banging into your knees as it danced back and forth, slapping against your shins, your pretty bare calves, exposed to the chilly September night, indifferent to the two dark intruders who stared without mercy from the open doorway, about to step inside, knife still brandished, threatening, crowding your no-longer sanctified space.


And this is where I stop. This is where I gladly yank myself back to the bright, safer lights of 2018No point in reliving the past when it evokes terror rather than pleasure, right?


Oh – and in case you’re worried about my younger counterpart, don’t be. I can tell you that she survived. survived. I wasn’t murdered – I’m still here today, as you can see. And I wasn’t raped. But I was assaulted, badly, with a knife teasing places I shudder to think of, and I said goodbye to the honey-sweet innocence of youth on that late September evening, as I stood on the threshold of my future adult life.


Why didn’t you warn me? I can still hear my younger self wailing at me through her petrified tears, across the miles and years that divide us.


I DID! I wail back. I DID warn you, but you didn’t listen! You don’t EVER listen! For God’s sake, Wendy, when WILL you start listening?


When will any of us start listening?


I guess we all know the answer to that.

Life is very dangerous for women. No doubt about it. They always need to be in groups for protection until married or otherwise. It ain't safe out there.

Wendy. Common sense, or street smarts, are something most young people have not developed. That is why they are prevented by law from purchasing cigarettes, alcohol, and many other products. They are even adjudicated in Juvenile Court and given probation for most first offences.
But times have become more dangerous for young girls! They are told they are EQUAL to men, can do anything they wish, and 911 will protect them from abuse. For awhile there were even self defense classes that told a petite girl she could stand up to a 200 pound man.
So in this delusional world of equality, they go off on vacation to Aruba, paid for by Mummy, do drugs and DIE!

Sorry to hear about your experience. But well written article. Incidentally, true love at 16 is entirely possible. I met my soulmate in kindergarten. We married at 19, and were together for most of our lives, until I lost her in a car crash at 29. We even shared the exact same birthday. Anything is possible. And life goes on.

"For awhile there were even self defense classes that told a petite girl she could stand up to a 200 pound man."
They can.
But they have to be willing to use deadly force or cripple their opponent.  That tends to be the hang up.
MEFOBILLS Added Sep 9, 2018 - 5:24pm
"For awhile there were even self defense classes that told a petite girl she could stand up to a 200 pound man.
Only with blows to weak pressure points.  That is a very tiny window for a petite woman.  What you call crippling blows is something most "moral" people are unwilling to do.
A petite woman is better off being escorted by other women or men whom she trusts.  What you see on teevee and hollyweird movies is unreality, women don't have a chance.  
OK, don't get your panties into a wad, it is just how it is.
I'm a big guy and I've fought both big guys and little guys and groups of negros who have attacked me (it almost always a group of two or more.)    Trust me, big guys are very hard to handle.  
It is just physics, there is no way around it.  A big guy has more reach, can land harder punches, and can absorb more energy.  It's exhausting fighting a big person.  Little people like women and smaller men can be dispatched in only a few seconds, and you don't need a knife. 
If a little guy (or woman) takes a big guy to the ground (good luck) then it is more equal.  
I've had knives pulled on me half a dozen times, usually in the context of being a bouncer, where I had "others" available and plans for that contingency.  When I ran a grocery store, the majority of people that pulled knives on me were Mexicans and that was very dangerous as it was one on one.
I would imagine in Britain or other regions with a large Muslim community, they would be the knife wielders.  
People, especially women, if they have been brainwashed with this "everybody is the same" BS, don't have the anti-bodies and sense to stay away from danger.  
The parent is at fault as well, but since Parents are brainwashed by society, they don't know how to pass knowledge down to their daughter/children.
I only became vicious in fights after one of my bouncer friends was killed by a wetback using a 38 special.  One of our "girls" also popped off to the wrong customers and she was drowned in a mop-bucket.  Women  need to be taught to not run their mouth because they are at a huge disadvantage.  There is no such thing as equality.
Every parent should spend extra effort with their children teaching them hard truths.

Out of all the rightists here expressing some horror over what happened to Wendy.  Sorry it did, but MOFOSWILL wants us to know he's Mr. & Mrs. "Street Fighting Man," in fisticuffs with minorities, beating them senseless in righteous indignation.  Small surprise groups of blacks want to attack you, and of course, MOFOSWILL, being who he is, would never ever provoke.  He offers no solution but fear and instilling fear.

Wendy, glad to see you back and contributing. The differences in experiences between males and females is always disturbing, because males tend to think everything is ok, and there's no problems out there we can't deal with, while females either know intuitively or learn through experiences like yours that things are not ok, and life can hang in the balance through the smallest of decisions. Like visiting a phone booth. Thanks for your story.

Jeff Michka,
I'm just telling you who typically attacked.  I had a knife fight with only only white guy, and he was practically a retard.  The overwhelming number of knife fights were with Mexicans.  The brothers never pulled knives - maybe you can tell me why?
You may also be surprised that it was the black brothers who were my slack.  I would let them into the club on the proviso they would help, and all I had to do would be to signal them, usually with just a nod.  They were always hunting white girls, so they felt obliged to me for letting them in.  Oftentimes it was the same guys and I would also give them free drinks.
This is how I AVOIDED fights.  Usually white people are too stupid or naive and don't understand the street as well as black folks.  My strategy worked.  White people are not awake - they are sleep walking.
I'm also telling  white folks, especially if you have a small daughter, to pull head out of ass.  These kinds of small women are often abducted as they are an easy target.
MEFOBILLS Added Sep 9, 2018 - 8:03pm
He offers no solution but 
I offered a solution.  It is for the small women especially to go out in groups, or have a man they trust with them.  I also said to ignore hollywood and teevee programming, because that is made up fantasy world.
Michka never offers solutions, he gets his dopamine hit by flaming people.

r and loathing, eh, MOFO.  I don't know if embracing fear and loathing is what the author advocated, and now, you try and make already helicopter parents even more fearful with you kidnapping nonsense.  You ought to follow your own advice, there's brown stuff around your ears.  Contrary to Trumpist fear mongers, there isn't this huge outbreaks of kidnappings.  Evidence, MOFO, or just wishful thinking?  Children being snatched from their parents.  Oh wait, that's ICE kidnapping children.  An oversight, I'm sure.

You may be surprised that a high percentage of the accompanied kids coming in from Mexico are NOT WITH their parents.  There is a good chance they are being trafficked.   This is why there was an attempt to do DNA testing, but it was shot down by the leftists.  Liberal leftists live in a fantasy world that actually makes things worse.
If you want to know how many kidnappings there are, just go on over to the FBI data base and take a loooook.   
My brother is a chief who oversees the prison system of two counties here in Texas.  Usually the press is uninterested in most crimes, only the sensational stuff makes it to teeeeveee.  
For example, when we imported all the knuckle heads into Texas from Louisiana (after Katrina), then there would be dozens of crimes - especially rape and abductions,  around where each knucklehead (almost always a negro) resided.  It took years to clean up that mess.
The press NEVER reported on this because it wasn't politically correct.

It's hard for me to imagine something so horrible.  With two guys surprising you in an enclosed place with nowhere to run, it's something no amount of training could prepare you.  Only someone with powerful, quick reflexes could get out of a situation like that and even that is iffy.  I used to wonder what it would be like if someone came after me with a knife.  What would I do?  Fight back or run?  It happened.  I've never gone looking for a fight, but I have never run from one either.  It will probably be the death of me.  Height does have its advantages though.  I was threatened in high school for standing is someone's spot.  The biggest bully in town was going to come and give me an ass-whooping.  I stood my ground.  He came.  He looked at me and said, "I don't f#%& with anyone over six feet tall," and turned around and left.  
My wife is petite.  I worry about her.  Apparently, Mexican men find her attractive and stare her up and down. 
As for a do-over, I have many.  Only a psychopath has no regrets.  Would I listen to my older self?  Probably not.  Even my 4-year-old thinks he is smarter than his old man.

Wendy, I avoided reading your post for some time because I knew I would not enjoy it, and I didnt. Having raised three girls and being older, please forgive me for talking to you more like a daughter than a colleague.
In the US it has been clear to me for some time that the police cannot protect you. They can only clean up the mess or worse.  Some females tend to forget that protection provided by a testosterone family male is not extended outside of that reach. Out there one is truly on ones own.   The primary point is that one needs to take security seriously, for security concerns are real. Even, or maybe especially, on campus. This is also true for males. Being without financial means meant that I spent alot of time living in rough places and had to learn how things work, how to sense where was trouble, and figure out a plan in case I got myself into the wrong situation.
My eldest solves this problem by living in gated community and not interacting with  very many normal people and historically has used a sort of slave escort as protection. These methods I find very flawed but that is her choice. My youngest uses a fighting knife and I have worked with training her to use such AND to convince her to try to use her sense in not getting into a situation to need to use it.
If Birmingham is in England then maybe guns are out of the question but let me continue anyway. For me personally, I like to go places that are abit out of the way, so I use a graded approach. There are times when I simply shift my fighting knife from by backpack to the appropriate place. There are times where I have moved a pistol into my vehicle and times where I have moved my pistol from my vehicle into my pocket. There are times where I have simply decided to run. I have used that successfuly several times.  If I were female I might be tempted to keep a nice little 5 shot revolver in my purse. Regardless of what you do along these lines you will have to train and understand security so that these things do not get into the wrong hands, especially children.   I also have trained with a stick.
Martial arts training can be very valuable,  but one should make sure one knows the difference between an art and a fighting skill.  There are certain bare hand strikes that are quite effective but you will have to train long and hard. They have the added advantage that they are very good for health. MEFOBILLS is correct in that large men are a big problem; it is just physics. An old  training partner of mine could deliver a deadly Liverpool kiss. Moreover, given his body type Im not sure it is even possible to hurt him with hands.
Of course nothing can protect you in all circumstances, but developing a more reptilian mindset in assessing your circumstances and preparing for them should help you in the future. Moreover, you may find that if you find yourself in trouble and you are prepared and you keep your cool, that your opponent may get just enough unnerved  by your demeanor that they sense that something is awry.   Some of these people are cowards.
Im very glad to hear you werent raped.

As far as fighting advice goes, the best i ever read was "If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck."
As to Wendy...
i read and liked your post yesterday, but i've avoided posting here because i don't know what to say that won't make anything worse instead of better.
i've read that most men have NO idea what it's like to be a woman or to be vulnerable to sexual predation, and that about the closest analogy would be to imagine you're the best-looking but smallest guy in prison, and then to imagine what you'd go through every day.  Every.  Single.  Day.
i'm assuming that your story is true, and not fiction.  If it's fiction, it's very well-written.  Hell, it's very well written, period.
i believe that there are only 4 ways to learn anything - i understand that people are working on a direct, computer-to-brain-interface, but it's not perfected, yet(or at least, that's what they want us to believe), but until that time:
You can read about it, and believe what you read;
You can hear about it from someone who has experienced it, and believe them;
You can see it with your own eyes, and believe they're not lying to you;
Or you can experience it yourself.
The last way teaches the best, but hurts the most.  Those who really love you don't want to see you get hurt(or scarred), which is why they often-if-not-usually waste their time giving advice.  Then, after the advice is ignored and the pain comes, to strive for mastery of the urge to say "I told you so."  They already know.
All that said, there are some things which cannot be learned any other way than experience, no matter how painful it may be.  You can read all about riding a bike, listen to everyone's stories about riding them, and watch every video ever made, but you can't ride a bike without riding a bike, and you can't learn balance or coordination without a few crashes and skinned parts of epidermis here and there.
One of my now-favorite sayings is "Experience is the school of mankind, but fools will learn at no other."  IME, it's always best to search out the vast compendium of human experience and learn from the mistakes of others - hurts a helluva lot less - well, unless you're IN to that sort of thing...but most of us confuse schooling with education, anyway.

Wendy says this:
Oh - I'll just say one more thing. I haven't heard the word 'Negro' used since my childhood.
Wendy, that is part of your brainwashing.  The term "black, brown, or white" are not racial constructs.  They belittle race, and deconstruct it in your mind, hence it is hypnosis.  For example, an albino negro is clearly "white, or even pink.  Even a child would still recognize the Albino as a negro.  Of course, the Albino's in some areas of Africa are killed and their body parts are sold for elixirs and medicines, so they don't survive long.
Also, certain behaviors can be ascribed to racial groups, and I had to learn  early on in order to survive.  For example, any group of two or more Negro's are a potential problem given group dynamics.  For example, if I'm fighting a "black man" then other blacks will join in immediately.  IMMEDIATELY.  Caucasian's don't have this pattern, they stand back and analyse.  In other words, there is a racial component to behavior.
While you are being raped, the white guys will watch and comment on it.  There are very very few people like me who will step in and crack heads.  You wanted your feminism, now you got it.  
Like I said earlier, I got around the negro "ganging up" problem in the club by using other Negros as my slack.  In effect I created my own gang.  This was very effective.  
Whites tend not to use knives - at least here in Texas, they are mostly armed with guns or have no armaments. They tend to hunt women in singles, not in packs.  The odd knucklehead white's I've had to deal with had mental issues, or they wanted to "test" themselves, or they couldn't take it when I gave them orders.  
My daughter carries bear spray which has long range, and she keeps her head on a swivel.  I still cannot keep her from wearing revealing clothing, as the brainwashing from holly-weird is almost too much to overcome.  She won't listen to me, so sometimes I have my brother give her advice.   Guys can still tell a woman's sexuality even if she is wearing formless clothing.  
The main reason women doll up, is to compete with other women.  If you are a woman and want to meet a man, just go up to him and start talking, strike up a conversation.  Women don't need to wear revealing clothing, they don't need makeup, and they don't need to play games. Give up the BS that a man has to chase you.  Give up the BS that race is a social construckt.
Women need to walk in groups, and have some minimal fighting skills - to then get away or run away.  Anonymous white men are not going to protect you, they have been converted into soy boys and cucks and pussy's by societal programming and environment.

Dopamine Jeff,
It is pretty simple, when you bounce somebody out of the club, usually by telling them to leave, they often get violent and attack.
What are you living in an alternate reality... I think you are.
These kinds of violent attacks, especially when people are drunk would occur regularly, sometimes daily.  
I think you might be a little bit "tarded."  Dopamine Jeff = tarded Jeff.
By the way, the same thing goes when you catch somebody shoplifting.  I had a Mexican pull a knife on me when he stole some Pampers.  He hid them in a cardboard box.  I let him go, I figured if he needed to steal some diapers for his kid, he was in a bad way.  
MEFOBILLS Added Sep 10, 2018 - 6:30pm
I'm not creating alarm.  Anybody can go and look at FBI statistics, especially statistics about black crime.   It is off the charts.  
Stay out of black areas, and avoid groups of young negro men, especially if you are a woman. Muslim areas (especially if they are Africans) in Europe and England are also becoming violent.  
Jeff Michka Added Sep 10, 2018 - 8:12pm

That's it, MOFOSWILL, I'm so mad about the constant "dopamine" remarks, I read them and just stomp around or tear the wings of flies, but that beats your racism and anti-semitism.  Aren't  you afraid of wandering gangs of jews?  It's only 'off the charts" for "good white people' or rightist shills like yourself.  Trump played you clowns with crime fears, and you are trying to spread fear as a good rightist, to help pave the way for more stories of "migrant violent crime," NOT being committed.  What a humanitarian you are MOFO, I'm surprised you didn't shoot the Latino, maybe you didn't have a gun, so couldn't. 
MEFOBILLS Added Sep 10, 2018 - 8:50pm
I'm not afraid of anybody, which is why I lived in an all black neighborhood.  Look, my advice is for normal people, not somebody like me.  A lot of folks have no conception of what multi-cultural hell is.  Texas is at the fore-front of demographic change, especially as it converts to north mexico.  The fact that Texan's are armed is one of the few reasons we have our "minorities" behave themselves.
When you are a bouncer, you carry a knife, a sap, and small gun.  People can escalate as they want, but I don't initiate force.   
Statistics talk and bull shit walks.  You will make excuses I'm sure, and get your dopamine hit.  
Those people who are rational, who might be reading this, just take some simple precautions.  You don't have to be afraid of life, but it is a good idea to go out in a group - especially if you are a small woman.
color of crime
The evidence suggests that if there is police racial bias in arrests it is negligible. Victim and witness surveys show that police arrest violent criminals in close proportion to the rates at which criminals of different races commit violent crimes.
Both violent and non­violent crime has been declining in the United States since a high in 1993. 2015 saw a disturbing rise in murder in major American cities that some observers associated with depolicing” in response to intense media and public scrutiny of police activity.
Crime rates
There are dramatic race differences in crime rates. Asians have the lowest rates, followed by whites, and then Hispanics. Blacks have notably high crime rates. This pattern holds true for virtually all crime categories and for virtually all age groups.
In 2013, a black was six times more likely than a non­black to commit murder, and 12 times more likely to murder someone of another race than to be murdered by someone of another race.
Interracial crime
In 2013, of the approximately 660,000 crimes of interracial violence that involved blacks and whites, blacks were the perpetrators 85 percent of the time. This meant a black person was 27 times more likely to attack a white person than vice versa. A Hispanic was eight times more likely to attack a white person than vice versa.
Urban centers
In 2014 in New York City, a black was 31 times more likely than a white to be arrested for murder, and a Hispanic was 12.4 times more likely. For the crime of “shooting”—defined as firing a bullet that hits someone—a black was 98.4 times more likely than a white to be arrested, and a Hispanic was 23.6 times more likely.
If New York City were all white, the murder rate would drop by 91 percent, the robbery rate by 81 percent, and the shootings rate by 97 percent.
In an all­-white Chicago, murder would decline 90 percent, rape by 81 percent, and robbery by 90 percent.
Police shootings
In 2015, a black person was 2.45 times more likely than a white person to be shot and killed by the police. A Hispanic person was 1.21 times more likely. These figures are well within what would be expected given race differences in crime rates and likelihood to resist arrest.
In 2015, police killings of blacks accounted for approximately 4 percent of homicides of blacks. Police killings of unarmed blacks accounted for approximately 0.6 percent of homicides of blacks. The overwhelming majority of black homicide victims (93 percent from 1980 to 2008) were killed by blacks.

I worked my way through college as a bouncer, the pay was good and women made themselves available.  It is not for everybody, but if I didn't think in racial terms, I might not have made it. 
Don't be that dumb cool-aide drinker who believes the programming they get from their Teeeveee.  Women especially are programmed to think they are invulnerable and they can "have it all."

I don't know MEFOBILLS. I know a young lady who was trained in martial arts that I wouldn't want to piss off in a dark alley. I think training is paramount.

Wendy - whats in a name? It is actually the name of my band, but there is a deeper meaning too. It will all make sense someday. Maybe.

You're right - "that which we call a rose by any other name would small as sweet."  Once again thank you for your comments. And hope it does all make sense someday!   :)

Please don't do exception makes the rule illogical to buttress an argument.  There are always exceptions.  Maybe we should have all "women" fire departments because every woman can carry a 200lb unconscious man down a stairwell?

It is a slippery slope when you do this sort of thing.  When you are talking about groups then AVERAGE is what matters.
In my expert opinion, training can only take you so far.  There is situational awareness and other factors you are diminishing.  One self aware factor should be your limits. 
The thrust of my argument is that the new "progressive" era we find ourselves in, is LESS SAFE for women on average.  Our importation of a diverse "colorful" people has brought criminality with them.  Further, their former fathers and brothers have been demonized and cucked, and will no longer step up to help. 
Is this tough "Female" going to be around all the time to protect her average sisters, especially when some immigrant is having a sexual emergency?

Oh, so ol MOFOSWILL was a bouncer....big deal.  That and a submachine gun will get you empty shell casings.  I think MOFOSWILL worked his way being a big mouth and having people behind him who kept his ass in one piece, but that spoils MOFOSWILL'S fear and loathing narrative.  Be afraid, says ol MOFOSWILL...be very afraid.  Them thar minorities are only in business to gut whitey, steal his children and kidnap and make his wife a hooker strung out on junk.  You know, typical rightist fear list.  Gotta stay safe from all those immigrant(s) are having a sexual emergency, says bouncer MOFO.  And suggesting MOFO is a racist is soooo unfair.  What BS.

Jeff, why the butt-hurt?  Did some bouncer throw you out on your ass, and you never got over being man-handled.  Maybe you felt it was raaaacist?  
Only little girls cry so much and have so much butt hurt.  Stop eating Soy, it has estrogen mimicking chemicals in it.
