GZ Metro Releases "Dealing with Subway Perverts" Guide

How to avoid the "wolves"


GZ Metro's wechat account usually consists of little more than heartwarming stories of lost children finding their folks again with the aid of station staff or of notices during festivals letting readers know that the metro will close one hour later. This morning, however, readers had a treat in store.

Due to the hotter weather necessitating the need to wear thinner and fewer clothes, GZ Metro today decided to release a handy guide for women, letting them know that lechers are on the loose in the Guangzhou underground. With a handy "how to spot a pervert" guide, it told women to watch our for "色狼" (sèláng), the Chinese word for both "wolf" and "pervert".

According to the guide, touching people, rubbing against them, being an exhibitionist and recording or photographing people on the metro are all forms of harrassment that need to be watched out for (doesn't this just sound like every single day on Guangzhou metro though? - Ed.).



Dealing with Subway Perverts



Pervert Classification

The First Category: The Vulgar Wolf
Where They Occur:This kind of wolf hides among people in crowded subways.
Customary Practices: These guys use various body organs to rub against women, often taking advantage of the woman’s fear or shyness.



The Second Category: The Liuniao Wolf

(Liuniao is a practice from the Dongbei region where bird owners take their caged birds out to the park to get fresh air and sing with the wild birds)

Where They Occur: This type of wolf appears in the morning and evening, haunting the compartments of crowded metro carriages.
Customary Practices: These ones really like revealing body parts in public places because they’re scared of the opposite gender and of receiving love and pleasure.


The Third Category: The Peeping Wolf
Slouching Level: Low combat effectiveness with stealthy glances
High Level: High combat effectiveness involves using a video camera or other high-tech equipment to secretly see someone’s chest, armpits (is this really a thing? - Ed.), up their skirts and other parts.

But that's not all. In addition to this handy guide GZ Metro also provided people with instructions on what to do if harrassed. So, what's the solution? Should you pull the lever and stop the train? Call the police? Or, at the very least, alert station staff and let them deal with it? Oh no no no... Here's the metro's "Five Ways to Defend Yourself Against Perverts", complete with the pictures they actually included in the original post.  


Five Ways to Defend Yourself Against "Wolves"

1. Give them a cold glance as if to say ‘you want to reach out again?’



2. Find a reliable-looking passenger and ask for protection.



3. Yell at them to shock them.



4. Make good use of your heel – and, we quote – ha, ha, ha.



5. Pow!
