HOLLA ON THE GO: Superintendent street harassment

There’s a superintendent who has harassed me twice on the street. First time at night he asked me for a cigarette and when I declined he moved in closer almost touching me.
Second time tonight as I was walking home on 82 st between york/east end ave he walked past me and catcalled me and started making loud sucking sexual sounds. I will take his photo the next time.

Gym Harasser

It was 5PM on a Tuesday in Midtown. This guy was loitering in front of my gym and started catcalling. I tried to ignore him and walk past him quickly but he grabbed my arm. When I shook him off, he grabbed my bag. I stepped into the gym and quickly snapped a picture of him behind me. He took a few steps towards me, considering coming after me but then changed his mind. I told the first employee I saw, who worked the juice bar counter, and he said something odd and unhelpful like “Is the guy as crazy as me?” I was so angry at the creep and the useless employee who did not take the situation seriously. Sadly, I was not surprised at his indifferent response.

HOLLA ON THE GO: Hey Sunshine

It wasn’t the comment that was so bad — it was that he did it in front of his 7 year old son.

Stephanie’s Story: “It makes me feel hopeless”

I was walking home with my male friend around midnight on a Wednesday. A man around the age of 30 stares at us as he passes. Then he starts hooting and hollering. Making gross noises and shouting as we’re walking away from him. My male friend doesn’t acknowledge it. He was in the middle of a story. I say, “fucking psycho!” referring to the shouting man. My male friend makes no comment. Another man around 30 is passing and witnesses the shouting guy and basically just giggles. It makes me angry when men holler at me. It makes me feel hopeless when my own friends don’t even acknowledge that it happens.

HOLLA ON THE GO: Acted as of he was jerking off to me

I had got on the j line in the area that would be considered border line queens and brooklyn towards Manhattan. I got on and I noticed an empty seat so I sat down. A few minutes into the ride and older man covered in tattoos sitting directly i front of me tries talking to me but I ignore him. I’m listening to music and on my phone. A few stops go by and we are are about to hit marcy ave. And I noticed from the corner of my eye that the man in front of me is doing wierd gestures. But i don’t look up I figure he’s.itchy scratching himself.I notice the man sitting next to him shakes his head in dissmay.thats when I looked up at the man. The older man sitting directly in front of me is acting as if he’s jerking off over his pants. And staring at me. I felt so humiliated and embarrased. I glared at him and for the first time ever decided to speak up and embarrass him. I called him out in front of everyone all he said was don’t take a video of me which I wasnt!!! I told him I will be filing a complaint and calling the police. I didn’t but I did snatch a few pictures. He’s between the age of 50–60 I can’t tell. He had tattoos on his hands arms and face Puerto Rican flags. Tan skin and white mustache. Has jowls full lips heavy eyes and a but of a wide nose. after I called him out he decided to bow his head so I couldn’t get a great photo with his face. But his tattoos are visible. This isn’t the first time this happends. But first time I decide to do something about it. It’s disgusting. I shouldn’t be afraid of going on the subway or even stepping out of my house without being harrased. Ladies speak up don’t be shy don’t be scared! Teach them a lesson!!

Rachel’s Story

It was New Year’s Eve and I had to change trains at 42nd St. I was wearing a full-length down jacket. Though obviously no one should be harassed no matter what they wear, even a puffer doesn’t fend them off. A man came down the stairs of the very crowded platform & started chasing me asking for a New Year’s kiss. Total stranger, I hadn’t even made eye contact. I ran. No one helped. I ducked behind a pillar and he moved on to other targets. Happy New Year 🙁

Youth Public Masturbater

This person masturbates publicly while staring at first graders. I was overseeing them on a trip and beyond disgusted. Luckily they did not see him. I went and stood in front of them and made it obvious that I had noticed.

HOLLA ON THE GO: Never went back to the Library

There’s a man named Mike. He was my brothers friend. He was 19 I was 15. Super creepy vibe from him. One day at the Middle country public library, I was reading a book. He was there and found me while I was down in the basement area reading a book. Well no one was around and he decided it was a good time to get on top of me and hump me. I was freaking out. He then shoved his tongue down my throat I pushed him away and I ran like hell. Never went back to the library after that.
