Deb’s Story: Can’t Walk to Work in Peace

Man starts talking to me on my way to work today. Beautiful this, beautiful that. I told him to stop talking to me and leave me alone. Wow, without missing a beat, he just starts yelling, “you’re a bitch, a straight up bitch!” I said, “oh good, now you’re *straight up* abusing me. That’s verbal assault right there.” Then he goes on about having an 11-year old daughter or relationship or something, which is just bad news for all involved. Happy mornings!

HOLLA ON THE GO: “It Is Absolutely Disgusting to Hear What I Hear”

From as young as I can remember, I’ve been verbally abused with racial slurs & demeaning names by men on the block I live on. Having a paint store meant construction workers, and by all means, everyone is trying to work, I get it. But why is it that I have to wear earphones and blast my music because I can’t stand what they say to and about me? It’s not even about what I wear, for it happens in the winter when I’m in oversized sweats and hoodies. It is absolutely disgusting to hear what i hear.

HOLLA ON THE GO: “I Was Completely Taken Aback”

I was walking to the subway near my apartment and a really creepy guy stopped right in front of me. I couldn’t get around him. He stared straight at me and said, “I want to fuck you so hard.” I was completely taken aback and felt disgusting for the entire day. I still do just thinking about it.

HOLLA ON THE GO: “this only made me feel gross and violated”

I was walking to Yayas Tea Garden when out of nowhere this creeper said “heyyyy beautiful”. Ironically, this only made me feel gross and violated.

HOLLA ON THE GO: Subway groper

I wish I knew this app back then. It was last fall, on the 33rd st. 7 train platform, 2pm. He was standing on top of the stairs as I was running to catch the upcoming train. As I passed he grabbed my butt. When I turned back in shock, he was laughing . I yelled at him all I could, and told some people in the train. But the doors closed and it was over. I hope he got arrested. I’m glad to see that there is nothing else reported in this area.

HOLLA ON THE GO: Subway creeper

Man on the north end of the Manhattan bound Dekalb Q-R-D platform had his dick out and was masturbating. Disgusting. Regret just running away. Should have told him how awful he is.

HOLLA ON THE GO: The difference between walking alone and walking with a man

Every day I walk the same route. Every day I hear men calling me “baby,” “sweetheart,” as long as I am alone. The minute they see me walking with my man, they remain quiet because they respect him, a strange man, over me, a lone woman.
