    First, let me start off by saying I work in a "flea market" on weekends. This past Sunday a young, probably 13 year old kid was there with either his mother or grandmother. I heard him asking the vendor across from me about something and then I realized he was mentally handicapped.
    A little later I started down to the bathroom and another vendor stopped me and asked me if I was going to go piss. I said yes and he told me there was a handicapped kid in there trying to grab everyone's cock. I went on in and spotted the same kid I had seen earlier. He was opening stall doors and going inside where someone was already there or else walking up to the one urinal and reaching around. I heard his chaperone holler his name and he told them he wasn't through. Luckily there were only two other people besides he and I in there at the time. One guy was pissing at the urinal so I was going to wait until he finished. Some other dude was in one of the two stalls standing there pissing and this kid opens the door and the guy tells him to get the hell out and pushes him out the stall door.
    The guy standing at the urinal says "fucking screwed up faggot" and left when he got through pissing. This kid had gone in the other stall - I guess to see if someone would come in. Evidentally the vendor who warned me had also told others because there was not as much traffic as usual.
    I pissed (which I had to do badly) although I had a hard time for fear he would come out and grab me. Yes, I'm gay but I certainly would not do anything like that with a not-normal kid in a public bathroom.
    I had to get back to my sales booth but wondered just how long that kid was able to stay in without getting the shit beat out of him.
    Sorry this is a long story but I am now wondering if I should have told the lady waiting outside that she needed to get him out quick - before some rough dude did get physical, or should I have informed the manager and let him handle it.
    I feel sorry for the kid not only for his condition but he is evidently gay curious and unfortunately there are those who have no sympathy for gays.

    I definitely would have told his guardian what was going on. This behavior needs to be corrected and fast. Allowing it to continue does no favours for the kid or anyone else using the facilities.

    God help him should he ever meet transformer99.


    At any rate, at the age of 13 he should be given "THE" talk regardless of his circumstances, and really enforce the concept that other peoples privates are private and not to be handled without the owners consent nor until he reaches legal age.

    With everyone ready to cry "pedophile" these days DV I would have not hesitated but to let the manager handle it literally and figuratively.

    Yes, somebody, if not you, should have informed the boy's guardian immediately upon learning of his actions.

    My recommendation to the people responsible for the child would be that an attentive male be his escort in the future.

    What I found most tragic about this story is the guy who said "fucking screwed up faggot" ~ it is apparent that he was so messed up himself that he could not realize that the boy was A) a juvenile, and B) mentally handicapped.

    A child like that needs understanding in all situations. By reacting as though the boy was a rational adult making bad decisions shows us something about the jerk who verbally abused him. Pecker's suggestion that the boy should be chaperoned by an adult ~ one who is familiar with the boy's family ~ is wise.

    I would imagine (and hope) that other men in the bathroom were more aware and would have reacted in a more compassionate manner. The kid may not even be gay, but just curious (as we all are here on LPSG.org) about the penis and how he compares to other males. Puberty is an overwhelming period for boys who have the ability to process their physical and homonal changes rationally, let alone those who do not possess the same faculties as the rest of us.

    If you see this boy and his guardians again at the flea market, please take the guardian(s) aside and gently explain what you witnessed, as well as your concerns. Understandibly it is a difficult situation to address, but for the boy's safety it really needs to be brought to the guardians' attention. It would be a terrible and avoidable tragedy if another person like the jerk you described reacts with hostility and does the boy true physical harm.
