I really appreciate you teaching me about not encroaching on your space by hip checking me. Sure, you weigh about 40 pounds less than me, but hitting me was the best way to show that I was in your personal bubble. I don't go to shows as much anymore, I didn't realize there was a no touching rule now. But here's the thing, I play roller derby and when you hip checked me, I could have knocked the whole front row down. I left because I got angry, and I had to remove myself from the situation or you would have gotten hurt. I'm not sure the next person will be as nice. So next time you decide to hit a girl, know that she might hit back.
