Last week, a dirty old man grabbed my arm and said “There’s a nice pussy.”

I was waiting for the bus when five guys walked past me, talking loudly amongst themselves about my ass. It wasn’t until they turned around and came back toward me that I noticed they were carrying a camera.
“Hey! We’re asking women with fine asses what they think of porn? Do you like porn? Hey! Do you like porn?”
I gave the offending teenage boys my patented “shutdown look” (which is an effective mix of scorn and pity) and snapped this pic– notice their camera in the background. It was so satisfying to capture this assholery!

“I want to be your toilet paper.”
This guy pulls up next to me on Western Avenue in Los Angeles.
He was grinnin’ and jackin’, jackin’ and grinnin’…
I was walking on 181st and St. Nick when this spring chicken of a man says something incomprehensible to me in Spanish. The look in his eye reeked of street harassment. I whipped around and asked, “What did you just say?”
He repeated, somethingsomethingsomething to I responded, “What does that mean?” According to Mr. spring chicken, “It means I think you’re pretty.”
Now ladies, I’m not fluent, but working in an office that’s 95% bilingual you pick up a few things and this young man was definitely not saying “Tu es bonita.” My friend with me is fluent in Portuguese and also couldn’t recognize what he was saying. Unfortunately for him street harassment feels the same in any language. We snapped his ass.
When asked why he did it, he said, “I just wanted to make her feel good.”
Little did he know.

Two boys comment on my sweet ride (Toyota ’85 corroded red pick up). I rev the engine and race past them. At the light they catch up and ask, hey, what’s under your hood baby. I shoot and floor it.

A gross man and a great grocery store do not mix. “Mmm, girl can I get some of that ass” Not the nastiest, but made me feel gross…until I took his picture!
when i turned i thought i was going to throw up. i was actually motionless for several seconds, then i said “i’m in love and must take a picture.” and then this weirdo said “of course, let me pose”.
and here he is. visitors to new orleans, beware.
