Two men standing at the entrance of the Jackson Heights Roosevelt Ave subway stop leered and repeatedly made disrespectful comments about my body as they forced me to walk around them to get to the station.
Man with a cart asked me a question I couldn’t make out and then finished with “you’re very pretty”. He stopped the woman walking in front of me too.
I’m so over all of the pigs in the world! I finally took a picture and told this guy who harassed me in a truck for an entire block that he was going up on a sexual predator website. Haha
These construction workers ruin my walk to and from my favorite coffee shop every single time.
I was taking my dog for a walk around 930 pm and I could hear a guy yelling stuff down the street. There are a lot of people around here that talk to themselves so I thought nothing of it. As I walked by he said,”When I grown up I’m going to be a serial killer.” He looked at me and said,”I’m going to start with the girls walking their dogs. I’m going to shoot you in the fucking head.” I walked by him and nothing else happened.
Man screaming “hey sexy come here!” from across the street at 1 A.M.
So this is currently happening on the train home from the city (I live on Long Island). The stripes are my dress so it’s a two-seater and as you can see he’s not exactly staying on his side. Not to mention the fact that his hand has been on his crotch basically the entire train ride. My space feels invaded and I’m very uncomfortable. I moved seats and just happened to have my hollaback! hoodie with me so that made me feel better, but it’s such crap. He’s the one who should have moved. Over it.
Today I was walking from my home to the D train to go to class in Manhattan. As I was walking down the street a man said to me, “Hey Sexy Eyes”. Shocked by his weird and inappropriate comment I thought was directed to the women behind me wearing particularly modest forms of hijab that left only their eyes uncovered, I turned around to glare at him and found the comment was actually directed at me. While I find some relief that he wasn’t antagonizing the Muslim women I was of course still disgusted at the comment. Hey sexy eyes!? Wtf! The whole train ride I was fuming and shaking. When it got to my stop and I stood up to get off the train, I found my legs shaking and myself barely able to stand. This type of catcall and inappropriate comment happens to me EVERY time I step onto the streets of the Bronx, without fail. Somedays I feel like I can’t stand to live here any longer. Thank you for giving me a forum to share my story. This comment today ruined my first day of class and left me totally unable to focus for the rest of the day. I hope we can get some change in New York.
Men like to group up and cat call at the corner here of 28th and broadway. One guy told me and another lady walking near me that he has a lot to sit on. Another said damn. Another said look at this mammi. All of this in less than 5 minutes to get underground to the subway
Men in front of a moving truck on 72nd street near Central Park catcalled, made kissing noises, called “hey sexy!”
I don’t feel safe engaging so I paused a block away to send this.
