Harassed on my run

It’s been a long week and I just wanted to go for a run. As I’m ending my run, this asshole starts ringing his bell at me. I yelled at him. He wouldn’t go away. He followed me for a while. I started taking his photo and he turned his head. He ruined my day.

Harrassed at the laundromat

There was a man sitting about 20 meters from my apartment door on an overturned newspaper dispenser; he was sitting between my apartment and the laundromat where I was doing laundry. During the course of my washing and drying, I walked past him four times. Each time he said, “OH DAMN! LOOK AT THOSE LEGS. YOU BEAUTIFUL. YOU BEAUTIFUL. DAMN. I SEE YOU. I LIKE THAT. OKAY THEN DON’T LOOK AT ME. DAMN. BEAUTIFUL.” I heard him even as I had already rounded the corner or as I was entering my apartment door.

Yelled at by the subway

This was a while ago. Me and my mom were walking to the subway when a guy came down the street yelling at us.

“Get out of my way, bitch!” Again and again. We walked quickly away and into a 7-11 nearby, but he followed us. I don’t know what I said, but it was really scary.

Some traffic officer talked to him and got him to leave, but I don’t know what happened. I kept pulling my mom to the back of the store and hiding. Scary.

HOLLA ON THE GO: Typical street harassment

Just walking home from work and this man commented on my “smile.” I had purposefully avoided make eye contact with him because I did not want to engage in conversation. I just want to be left alone.

HOLLA ON THE GO: Grazed by a passer-by

I was walking to the Astoria Blvd subway stop when I walked by a man. He grazed my hip with his hand and said good morning. He was wearing a brown and black letterman jacket. I said “don’t touch people asshole.”

HOLLA ON THE GO: My First Experience

I was on my way to the subway with my sister a few days ago. It was the first day that I thought it was warm enough to wear a tank top with nothing over it. I’m still not sure if that was a coincidence or not.
There was this weird, maybe 50 or 55 year old man who was smoking on the street. He was wearing a camouflage jacket. I’m practically exactly 13 years old.
My sister looks a lot like a guy- short hair and all- so I don’t know how he saw her.
As I walked by, he let out some smoke and winked at me. Me. He was almost four times my age– not like it would be okay if he was doing it to someone his own age. I know it’s not as bad as some of the other stories on here, but it really weirded me out. He didn’t follow me or something, still, I felt gross. Who thinks that’s okay? He had a few grey hairs. I’m 13! This was my first experience with this kind of thing and I’ve been dreading it for ages.
