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
A man was shouting threatening things at my friend and I including “you’ll never say no to me again” and “I’ll catch you naked.”
1pm. A group of men working at the stores on the block constantly harass passing women.
This little bit of skin was apparently enough for a guy to undress me with his eyes for the entire PATH train ride into the city. I eventually stopped looking up from my lap because every time I did I saw this man looking me over with this awful smirk. I wanted to tell him to stop but there were only a few other people in the car. He tried keeping me in his sights at WTC where I got a few more glimpses of that awful smirk but I ran up the escalator once I could break away from the crowd and lost him.
