Morning commute to work. While reading a magazine this man across from me grabs the free paper and puts it in front of his crotch while fumbling to get his zipper open. I looked up and around to let him know that I was noticing what he was trying to do. He seemed frustrated/agitated and started muttering to himself. At the next stop luckily someone else got on the train and sat near me. The guy moved seats and tried again. I could not look at him so I took a photo. So disturbing and scary.
I’m from the south and the worst I’ve ever gotten was a whistle and hey sexy thrown at me. Usually when I was wearing something that really showed off my figure.
This city has been a total culture shock for me. It took me a while to get used to men saying Hi to me often and hearing muttered words on the streets. I’ve taken to listening to my music to avoid it most of the time.
One night, I was walking home when a guy walking by says “Hello how ya doin’?” I had my ear buds in and didn’t feel like talking to a stranger walking the opposite direction of me so ignored him. His response? “I’m nice, HO!”
Three men walked by me and said “Hey Beautiful!” When I didn’t reply they turned back and screamed “NOT!” I guess true beauty lies in whether or not you positively react to men who harass you.
About a year ago I was waiting for the bus when a small car pulled up next to me. I looked to see that the driver (male) was masturbating. I walked away.
I was walking home from the bus stop around 11:30AM and a young man had his car parked to the east side of the mailbox. When I passed by him, he was standing on the street masturbating facing the sidewalk, looking at me and saying something, which I couldn’t hear because I was listening to music.
“I’ll dog you out baby”
A man sat neat me on the southbound G train at 9:00pm Saturday night. He waited until we were the only two people left on the car. Then, he pulled out his penis and started jerking off between the 7th Ave and 15th St stations.
While my sis and I waited for the express train on 96th street station 8pm, a tall guy in hat and long coat walked and stood in front of us. I didn’t notice anything but then my sister suddenly said to me, what is he doing?! Is he holding his ding dong?! And I looked and saw he really was.
I didn’t know what to do, I was scared and stunned. My sister dragged me away further left. When we walked away I realized I should’ve called the cops. The perv was heading towards the other direction.
