Anonymous’s Story: “Nauseous”

8:30am.  Walking down a wide tree lined street in a suburban neighborhood passing large but cozy houses.  Sort of McMansion Jr’s.  A boy, maybe 16 or 17 years old, walks towards me on this otherwise vacant street.  We lock a gaze and as I look into his greyish blue eyes, I feel an odd cold tingling of “off-ness” in his stare.  I look away and as he passes me he grabs my shoulders so I stop.  He then squeezes my breasts hard in his hands, and lets go and runs fast away from me.  I remain stunned.  Heart racing.  Nauseous.

Anonymous’s Story: Rude

I was walking back from the dining hall on my campus with a friend.  There is a place called “the hangout tree”–benches where a lot of male college students sit and gaze at the women that pass–so I walked by with my usual “ignore all around me” attitude.  Nevertheless, not today.  One guy said, “hey sexy baby, can I holler?”  There were five other men jeering at his friend who talked to me.  I passed by ignoring him and he shouted, “You are an ugly bitch anyway.”  I felt so annoyed and pissed off I couldn’t say anything about how f**cking rude he was.

I saw a woman at work be screamed at by a customer. This man singled out my friend because she is a woman and he cussed her out.

HOLLA ON THE GO: new submission from app

As a female firefighter I was sexually harassed and it went further than harassment by the men I worked with. I also remember being catcalled on the street when I was a kid and it would make me uncomfortable. I want to feel comfortable walking down the street and at work.

HOLLA ON THE GO: submission from phone app

got on the elevator at Lynn, MA train station with my bike at 8:30 a.m. A tallish man in his 50s I think followed me on. Once the door closed, he got very close ogling me, but I kept looking away, used my bike as a barrier. Got off at platform (lots of commuters) went to far end. Turned he was gone.
