This happened over a year ago, but after posting one (unrelated) story on Hollaback!, I realized that I couldn’t let this guy get away with it too. I was a senior in high school and had to ride the school bus for that day. I noticed one kid staring at me on the bus but I didn’t think much of it. I knew he lived by my apartment so I was not even surprised when he got off at my stop and came to walk a step behind me. I finally reached my apartment and as I was about to head in through the main door, he asked me if I wanted to “come over for a good time” and, when I politely refused, that he would, in his exact words, “suck my tits dry”.
I was shocked and angry that he would even dare to say that. But most of all, I was scared. This guy, even though he was younger than me, he was physically much larger. I ran inside my apartment and just collapsed onto my bed, relieved that nothing more had happened.

RUSH LIMBAUGH CALLS SEXUAL HARASSMENT “HUMAN NATURE” AND TELLS WOMEN “WILL YOU PLEASE TELL YOUR BREASTS TO STOP STARING AT MY EYES?”
Hollaback! launches a petition to demand an apology for Rush’s latest attack on women.
[BROOKLYN, NY] On his show yesterday Rush Limbaugh dismissed a new study on street harassment and objectification by stating, “[Liberals] just despise basic human nature.” He then suggested that men should “walk up to the woman and say, ‘Will you please ask your breasts to stop staring at my eyes?’” Hollaback! has launched a petition on change.org to demand a public apology.
Street harassment is the most common form of gender-based violence globally. Long-term impacts include depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder. At ihollaback.org, victims report missing school, changing jobs or moving homes to avoid exposure.
“Street harassment isn’t ‘human nature,’ it’s a form of violence. Rush’s grim view of “human nature” ignores the many good men who are out there — supporting women, respecting women, and working alongside women to build a world where everyone has the right to feel safe and confident,” said Executive Director Emily May. Hollaback! was co-founded by three men and four women in 2005, and men remain an active part of the movement.

About Hollaback! : Hollaback! is a worldwide movement dedicated to ending street harassment using mobile technology. By collecting women and LGBTQ folks’ stories and pictures in a safe and shareable way with our mobile phone applications, Hollaback! is creating a crowd-sourced initiative to end street harassment. Hollaback! breaks the silence that has perpetrated sexual violence internationally, asserts that any and all gender-based violence is unacceptable, and creates a world where we have an option—and, more importantly—a response.
