Within a minute of each other one man yelled after me “Hey beautiful, I would treat you good. I’ll fuck you good” and another slowed down his car to follow me while making kissing noises and vulgar hand gestures at me. He only drove away when I went inside my building.
This guy was following me and saying “hey sexy” and telling me to smile for him, while making kissing faces at me.
Someone drove by on a bike as I was crossing the street and grabbed my butt. No one around did or said anything. He sped off and I couldn’t see his face.
I was going to visit my husband at work in Harlem and on my way there, a man apparently drunk started yelling at me ”come here you white b*tch! I wanna talk to you” Obviously I ignored him because I didn’t want to escalate the situation. I kept walking. He kept walking behind me yelling. So I picked up my pace and was almost running at this point at which moment I felt a sudden strong painful hit on the back of my neck. I turned around and saw a big rock on the ground. That man literally took a rock and threw it at me for not having turned around to talk to him. I was so scared and so grateful at the same time that he didn’t do something worse like pulling out a knife. Every time I pass by there I get aggressively harassed. Not even catcalled, but straight up sexually harassed and yelled at. Since then I never walk to my husband’s work place, I have to take a cab now to the door, because I feel in danger.
Crusty guy said the infamous: you should smile. And when I didn’t respond got very aggressive and shouted “bitch” at me.
Walking to subway for work. A Heineken delivery man makes comments as I am walking past. I tell him that is not it is not appropriate to make comments to women walking by. I take pictures of him and he starts yelling that I am an ugly ass fucking bitch and I better watch it. (Man in red shirt)
A disgusting man stuck his hand up my dress — up my ass– as he was getting off the subway at hunters point ave stop on the 7 train at 7:46pm tonight 9/22/2014 — I was startled and screamed, but he ran off too quickly for me to do anything else. I’m sure this happens (and way worse) all the time and these men should not get away with this! I am sickened and also scared for other victims.
Three guys saw me walking down the street and formed a circle as I passed saying: wow, look at you and hi gorgeous, etc. I flicked them off and said fuck you which got them even more riled up making them walk behind me for half a block so I turned and started to ask them of making me feel like crap made them feel good. I asked if they would like this to happen to their daughters and told them again to leave me alone. I left feeling angry and trembling. I wish I knew how to handle it better.
