The guy probably thought it was funny. On my way home this guy passed me but then decided to walk backwards with me. He was also saying something but I ignored him since I was wearing my headphones and didn’t hear anything. He proceeded to walk with me one block and when he saw that I didn’t even looked at him he stopped.
Without a man with his kid pointing at me and shaking his hands saying “no” as if I don’t belong here
“Hey beautiful. Excuse me.”
I walk out of my apartment and the guys sitting across the street on the stoop start yelling “strong ass legs! Strong ass legs and a fat ass!” I deal with this almost everyday.
Dude walking past me made eye contact and said “let me see them titties bounce.” After that he proceeded to grope me. It happened so quickly.
This guy was rubbing my butt on the train
At around 8:30pm I was standing with a girl waiting to cross the Street when a group of 5-6 young boys came and started talking to the girl. I couldn’t really understand what they were saying but at first I thought they knew each other cause they were acting really freely. Then I saw one of the boys filming with his phone while another was trying to scare the girl raising his hand as if he was going to hit her. Fortunately he didn’t and after a couple of minutes they walked away. I was really sorry I didn’t intervene but maybe it was better since the situation could have become worse.
I was going home at around 9:30pm and a guy started walking with me. He didn’t seem dangerous so when he said Hey, I replied Hi. Then he asked me: Do you have company for tonight? I said Yes. He: are you sure? Me: Yes, while becoming a bit agitated since there were very few people on the street. Fortunately then he said Ok, bye. I was relieved!
Walking to Steiner Studios with my very full backpack when a guy starts hollering from his SUV: “Miss! Miss! Who’s tapping that? Because I wanna ram my-”
Seeing red, I threw down my bag, ran to his car, took a photo of his NJ license plate, and told him I was calling the cops. I was shaking with anger, and as I turned back to get my bag I actually tripped over it and fell.
A guy walking his dog saw the whole thing – he didn’t speak up for me, but he did find my mug on the sidewalk – although he definitely called “Miss” to get my attention. Is there a gender-focused pronoun that hasn’t become a trigger word frombeing yelled at me ? Not sure.
I’m also not sure whether I should have actually called the police. I don’t live close by so I don’t know what precinct I was in, and calling 911 seems excessive. What do y’all think?
I was walking to do grocery shopping and a young kid approached and kept trying to talk to me. As I ignored him he followed me inside the super market while trying to talk to me, he introduced himself and kept asking questions, I then told him I was busy but he kept trying to talk to me, get my phone number and then tried to give me a hug.
I told him to leave me alone and he left, but honestly I feel unsafe now because I feel he is going to keep trying to track me down. Maybe I am exaggerating but as this is my first time living here I don’t know how this people behave and how far they go.
My friends suggested I buy mace, which I will, but I feel sad that I actually have to buy mace to feel safer.
