I was on the train, and it was very crowded. I felt a hand brush against my bottom, but didn’t think too much about it; the train was packed, so I thought it was accidental. Then it happened again. And again. At this point, I was starting to believe it was intentional. When I looked back, I saw this man staring at me, standing way too close. The train reached a stop, and as people left, I finally found a seat. Unfortunately, it happened to be right in front of the creep. As I sat, I felt his eyes piercing through my skin. For some reason, I was afraid to look at him. When I finally did look, I realized that what he was doing was no accident. This man was masturbating inside of his jeans while staring at me.
I was disgusted.
I was angry at him.
But I was also angry at myself.
Why didn’t I speak up?
I didn’t know what to say. I couldn’t find the words…I was just shocked. I couldn’t believe it happened.
January 11th 2015, 11:45 pm. Dude whipped it out and started playing with it in hopes to attract me.
I was walking on the sidewalk, and my heels are really loud. A short man ahead of me turned around multiple times, pointing to my shoes. With my music on, I couldn’t hear him, but I felt threatened. As I turned into the 49th Street subway station I heard him call me a little bitch. I thought he might follow me, but luckily he didn’t.
Was handing out fliers for nearby college by a subway station the 2 or 5 at 149th and 3rd when someone came up to me, grabbed me, touched me in inappropriate places, grabbed my face said ‘come here’ tried to kiss me on the lips, ended up kissing the cheek when I finally succeeded in pushing them off me they shouted ‘got ya!’ And went on the subway. No passerbys stopped to help, and my boss had a ‘shit happens’ stance on the matter.
Ive been left voicemails, snapchats tweets and harassed in person by kids. they’ve threatened to jump me, calling me names and tweeting very offensive lies at me. in school they scream in my face, say faggot pussy and all this other stuff. ive been ganged up by at least 20 of their friends all at the same time. I used to be friends with them too but i hungout with one of their ex girlfriends and thats what started this. please help.
Hot dog vendor asked where me and my friend where we were from (we’re from New York but Asian). He said he was Egyptian when I asked. Then he randomly asked if he could kiss me as if it was perfectly fine. I was shocked and disgusted.
I was sitting on the 2 train going uptown on 12/30/14 and a male with glasses wearing a puffy brown coat sat next to me. He kept starring at me. I pretended to exit the train and got in the next car. I move four cars over and I looked back and he was following me. He followed me all the way to the first car. I informed the train conductor he let me out and closed the train doors. I ran up the stairs and took a uptown bus.
This man proceeded to move his seat so that he was in my line of vision – then whipped out his junk and leered at me as he tugged it.
On my way to Brooklyn on F train during rush hour (around 4:45pm), I went into a extremely crowded subway car. I was standing very close to one particular man who carried a side backpack where his arm hanging over the bag. As the car began to fill up even more (making us even closer together), he gradually moved his hand closer to my crouch area and began to grope me. I was able to jerk away but he still continued to grope. After about two subway stops later, I was able to move away from him but he continued to stare at me. Then after another two stops, he gave me one last look and got off the train.
Yesterday while I was having a phone conversation in Spanish at a public place a random man I have never met asked me to slow down. I simply looked at him and said “you don’t know me” and signaled for him to keep on walking. What is wrong with some men these days? He looked at me in shock, appalled, and sorta offended. The irony! I did not welcome his flirtatious tone or attempt at being funny by telling me what to do. Same goes for that other guy wondering where I was from. Stop trying to exert your “macho” dominance unto female strangers. The more women that stand up for themselves when that type of incident happens the less likely men are going to do that! Feel offended all you want, I bet next time you will think twice a**hole #hollaback #nothanks #learnsomemanners #FOH
