HOLLA ON THE GO: “Sick of it”

Again on the bus through Rusholme, this time after a night out. I often get the bus home when I’m sober. A guy gets on and again chooses to sit opposite me on an empty bus, tries speaking to me which I ignore and get up to move seats. He grabs my behind so I started screaming at him so the bus driver made him get off the bus. I wish I could write down all the verbal incidents but there are so many it’s disgusting, my response now is to frown at them in disgust or shout back angrily, sick of it.

HOLLA ON THE GO: A weird vibe and a creepy phone message

I was sat on the bus on the way home from work and felt a guy sit on the seat across the aisle from me. I picked up a weird vibe from him but I didn’t look up because I could sort of tell that I he wanted me to somehow? Anyway after about 10 minutes he taps me and passes me his phone and said read this I glanced at it and read enough passed it him back and he said no read it or I can read it to you so I took the phone took a photo passed it back and gave him a dressing down so everyone saw.

HOLLA ON THE GO: Witnessed harassment

A man was insisting/commanding that a woman tell him her name, calling her Shorty, while she was waiting at a crosswalk.

This was the first time I’ve ever witnessed street harassment that I can remember. As someone, myself an androgynous male, who’s been harassed/abused/stalked I wanted to help this person but felt confused and scared. If you’re reading this, I’m sorry that I didn’t do more than pause and glare at him while he wasn’t looking, I hope you’re ok.

HOLLA ON THE GO: “He just pretended like nothing happened”

Was walking in America Mura with my friend bel. We were trying to find a cab. It was around 2am. Some guy grabbed my boob. Not brushed it, he outright palmed it. So I turned around and said “what the f*ck?!” in English. the guy was like, “sumimasen”, but he wasn’t. So I and pushed him, and he just pretended like nothing happened as i shouted at him. he slithered across the road and started following a girl in a mini skirt… Creep. I should have kicked him in the balls.

HOLLA ON THE GO: Howl

I was sitting at a traffic light in my car on my way to the school to drop off my young daughter. A young adult male leaned out his driver side window and literally howled at me. I did nothing to spur this, and nothing in response to this.

HOLLA ON THE GO: “Bonsoir”

“Bonsoir” appuyés et poisseux, avenue de Lyon à Toulouse. Oui, je vous ai vus, non, je n’ai pas envie de vous saluer. Comme si slalomer entre la viande saoule n’était pas suffisamment pénible. Bande de chacals !

I've got your back!
