After my date with my boyfriend, I walked him to the subway and began to make my way home. I was in a great mood from having a good night. As I was walking, a scruffy looking man said to me “oh my God, you are so sexy” immediately followed with “I don’t usually look like this.” As if I cared. SIGH.
Walking under scaffolding and a big man comes up close and says “sexy girl” to me. I felt scared, and what’s worse, I started analyzing what I was wearing making sure “I hadn’t brought it on” and then was thankful that it was a “positive comment” not an “aggressive” one. What is the world coming to when you’re thankful someone frightens you when they could attack you?!
I was walking to the subway stop with my boyfriend and there were two girls walking a few yards in front of us. There were two men, probably drunk college students, on the balcony of one of the apartments yelling down at the two girls. At first it was like “Hey girls, you want to come up and party with us? Come on, don’t be shy!” but then when the girls ignored them it got mean.
They began to insult the girls, calling them ugly and fat and telling them they should take any attention they could get. I pulled out my phone and said “I’m going to call the cops” and the girls turned around and told me not to, that they didn’t want to cause any problems.
Commentary for two blocks (subway to building) about how nice and large and fuckable my ass is.
I was on my way back home from school around 8pm I was getting out from the J train station on Crescent Street & Fulton in Brooklyn when a group of teen boys decided to yell, “pssss hey shorty” but since I didn’t respond they yelled “you ugly bitch”. I ignored them when not even a block away a dirty old man yelled “sexy bitch” in my ear, I felt like crap and I was soo angry. I wanted to punch him the the face, but I was scared, he was standing with a group of men. I hate feeling this unsafe and scared.
I was passing a group of guys on the sidewalk, one of whom got in my way with his arms held out and asked if I would like to hug him
Guy walked past me and grabbed my penis. I was so mad
I was walking back to my building from the subway at 3:30 am and as I went to cross 139th, a police car slowed down and stopped in front of me and rolled their window down. I waved and they asked if I was going home, to which I said yes, and then one of the cops asked if he could come home with me…
I chastised him saying he was supposed to be a cop and to act like an adult before I quickly hurried away. UNBELIEVABLE!
I am SO angry! On the R a man walked over and stood in front of me with his dick out. I got up and moved towards some other ladies to confer that they’d seen the same thing.
I then left the car to tell the conductor. He went to check in it and said he couldn’t guarantee anything but he told the guy to pull up his pants and he had. I feel violated. Seriously?! I’ve never heard of a woman doing that!
I was walking through the park towards my apartment at 5:30pm pushing a baby in a stroller, and was suddenly approached by three boys. One of the boys hit me in the buttocks saying “Boom Baby”! All the boys then ran away before I had a chance to respond.
I was shocked – the park should be an area free of harassment.
