“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.
was on the corner of 6th ave and waverly with another girl friend and guy friend, this biker tried to get on the sidewalk and said “ching ching FOB” to get me to move.
Passerby said, “Damn, baby.”
I was biking home from an event when a car full of men pulled alongside me and proceeded to drive right next to me. They were calling out at me, hissing, and just generally being very creepy. Even when I started biking faster they just sped up and proceeded to tell me I wasn’t gonna get away that easily. I passed a few fellow cyclists who did nothing to help me. After a while, the chase finally became stale to them because they were beginning to enter busier streets and hold up traffic. But before they finally sped off into the night, one of them flicked a lit cigarette at me as a final humiliation. I was so scared and essentially had no form of recourse afterwards. It should never be like that.
Cat calls when walking home this morning after a night out and crashing with a friend. Guy stopped directly in my path as I was crossing the street.
“Hi baby, hi. Hey baby- you’re beautiful.”
Didn’t let up or get out of my way until I acknowledged him. I did so by saying “I’m not your baby”
