I was walking my dog by 189th st park in Washington Heights and a boy about middle school or high school yells at a cop “Fxck you and I raped that girl AND her dog”. I flipped him the bird. But I just wish I wasn’t living in this kind of world.
Guy started talking to me and told me my dress was pretty. Then wanted to know if I like scallion pancakes. Then pointed out a restaurant where I could get such pancakes. I have not yet said anything to him so he asks me how my day is and I say alright and turn into the train station and he says oh you’re taking the train? I was going to walk with you. It’s night. I wanted to go home. Alone. Without some creep inviting himself to follow me around.
Was waiting outside of the Winthrop station entrance (manhattan bound). When I ignored his advances, he became threatening and vulgar. Followed me when I tried to avoid him, mimicking my every move, inches from my face.
Left my apartment building with two other women friends at 10:30 PM on September 26th and proceeded to get cat called by a man. I shouted for him to fuck off and he called me a racist bitch. Later that night I came home at 2:15 AM and after entering my apartment building the door locked behind me and he rushed the door, banging on it and calling me a bitch. I called 911 and filed a complaint.
1. Man leans out his car window to yell at me as I’m on my way to work.
“OH. That is nice.”
Being referred to as ‘that’. I don’t have the right words to describe how disgusting this felt. I was too stunned to yell back and shame him. I wish I had.
2. On my way back to work with my lunch: “send me a postcard baby.” I turned around and asked him “why? Why would you say that?”
“Have a great day at work, beautiful.”
I was at The Leonora, a club in Chelsea. I was talking to my partner outside about 20 feet from the clubs entrance while I was trying to get some chapstick out of my bag. While doing this everything in my bag fell out and a passerby asked if I needed help. He helped me and when done, he proceeded to grab my breasts and said “You’re Nice.” I walked away. He stalked the area for a bit while I found my group outside. He then left.
Coney Island Ave. between avenues H and I. The men at this lumberyard are never shy about making animal sounds and verbally intimidating women. There were about 10 of them today, 9/30/14 at 3:30 and they all made moves to approach and greet me. It was hard to get past them. I walked home from the post office on the opposite side of the street and still got cat called.
I was riding westbound in the bike lane. A middle aged man in an SUV slowed down next to me with his window rolled down. He said “mmm very nice.” I glanced at him while I rode and shouted “no.” At the next light he was first at the intersection. I stopped at the light and didn’t look at him. I was pretty scared he’d get out of the car but tried not to show it. When the light changed he drove on and I saw him looking at me through the window which was now rolled up.
I was standing on the corner outside of the Sunday farmer’s market talking to my mother on the phone. A man walks by me, looking me straight in the eyes, and says “I don’t want to have to hurt you but… (Inaudible mumbles).” He kept walking so I stayed put and kept talking to my mom on the phone. A minute later he comes back walking very quickly towards me yelling “HEY YOU. I wanna talk to you,” with a crazed look in his eyes. I then darted into the busy farmers market and lost him.
