I was walking into my boxing gym in a tank with our logo on it and yoga pants. I was carrying my gym bag and gloves and while walking in a pick up truck with two guys drives by and slows down and one of the men yelled “you’d look even sexier with those gloves on” when I didn’t respond the other yelled “I’d let you rough me up in bed”. I was so taken back I didn’t even respond I just kept walking:/
I was walking through busy Main street. This kid ( I can only describe him as a kid he was probably in his late teens or early twenties) was coming in the opposite direction. We were trying to move out of eachother’s way..all of a sudden he throws his fist up near my face as if to try to scare me. Like a fake out punch. A complete douchebag. I wish I said something more than “seriously?” He didn’t even notice how I responded.
I can’t believe some people feel so entitled in this world that they feel they can act however they want and treat people however they want without any regards to peoples feelings. I hope this kid gets a lesson learning…really soon.
Bullied by strange man into holding his hand. When tried to retreat, man yelled that it was because he was black and told me to f myself. Threatening behavior throughout encounter.
Talking on my phone on the street, man whispers something in my hair. I turned around and yelled at him; he called me a “dumbass” because he “was just on the phone.” Right.
Walking on the upper east side at 11:30 am a man sitting on his step says “yum, yum…I want me some.”
A man sitting on the stoop of 203 W. 94th Street told me he “liked my style, slow and steady”. When I told him that was sexual harassment (not a compliment), he called me “princess” and kept going. I yelled at him. It didn’t help.
I get harassed EVERY DAY in my neighborhood (10025). When will the government do something about street harassment here?! I’m convinced no on in government gives a shit about women.
Friend and I got on the A train at 34th street, Brooklyn bound. This dude is hardcore staring. Eventually gets up and sits across from us, all the time masturbating through his jeans. I call him on it, and he calls me a bitch and all sorts of other things while my friend is right next to me. I asked if his mother dealt with this and he said he had sisters. so I told him his sisters dealt with the same behavior he was giving me, and he got angry. Don’t let him masturbate at you
When I walked to the bus stop in Middletown, at least 5 men talked to me, calling me cute and asking if I need a ride.
My friend just got yelled at on the street by some inarticulate man while we were in the middle of a great conversation, and it totally bummed us out. Stop invading our brain space, man!
