There was a man sitting next to me on the train who kept hitting on me and eventually grabbed my phone out of my hands and called his number so he would have my phone number. He won’t stop calling or texting me and I’ve had to turn off my phone many times just to not be disturbed by 20 calls in a row.
Construction man passed me on the street, looked at me and said “nice”
“How u doin’ ladies” and a barrage of kissing noises
While walking to subway “Damnnnn hey there sweetie” (no response from me) “hey sexy you aren’t gonna talk to me? How ur day going” (I glare at him) “what this girl think she’s too good for me or something she ain’t even a 4 girl give me ur number you know I’m the best you could do”
“You go girl!” He shouted at me from the passenger side window as I used the crosswalk in front of his stopped vehicle.
As I turned and continued down the road past the SUV, “You go girl!”
“You go girl!” He must have been hanging out the window at this point, but I refused to look.
“YOU GO GIRL! YOU GO GIRL!” Why wouldn’t the light just turn green?
A man walking his dog started walking towards me and said, “can I kiss those pretty lips”. I sped up but he was uncomfortably close to me.
Walking home on my apartment block today I passed a man on the street who made sexually aggressive noises, called me baby and said I was his kind of woman. It was disgusting. I was worried he would realize where I lived.
Multiple things shouted at me along the lines of sexy, dayum, etc as leaving a drug store
There are these guys that sit on this corner late at night when I come home from work. They reach for me and yell things at me. Things like – “there’s my cover girl, I like that ass”. “Looking good sweet heart, swing those arms for me.” I have crossed the street to avoid them and pray to walk by them unnoticed or worse hope I look ugly enough that day that they will leave me alone. One time a guy had his little boy with him and still whistled and gropes for me. It has to stop!
Ive experienced 3 maybe harassments in the last 2 days and I just wanted to hollaback to stop trying to deal with it myself and start using hollaback app regularly. Whistles and “Yo! Yo! Yo!” Were All that was said and I could not confirm they were at me, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t make me feel scared or gross or like an object. I feel I have to be ready to be harassed every day. This sucks.
