Rowan’s Story: It doesn’t make any sense

When going out in public, I will get harassed if I’m alone about 90% of the time. Tonight, I was running Favors on my motorcycle, which is one of my jobs, and I not only watched other women get cat calls, but I’d get men hanging out of their cars and yelling nonsense like “Puuuussssyy!!”, making kissing noises, etc. Whenever possible, I’ve turned to them and said “Darlin’, that doesn’t even make any sense”. And it works. They back peddle. It’s bizarre.

Tonight, I walked up to a stranger and asked him if he knew of a coffee shop nearby that was still open. He proceeded to say “Baby, you lookin’ to drink some coffee? I know exactly where you should go”, asked if he could get coffee with me, said yes he knew of a place, and then was not really able to tell me where it was, or the name, or anything actually useful. Eventually, I walked away from him saying “I guess you can’t help me. Thank you though. ” He then proceeded to ask me for a dollar. When I shook my head, he started to say “I hope you crash on your motorcycle” “I hope you die” “I hope you get hurt.” I turned around, and said “That doesn’t even make any sense. First, you hit on me, ask me out for coffee, and now you wish me bad luck? What the hell are you talking about?” He then went on to shout random compliments at me, saying ” I hope God blesses you”, “I hope the angels smile upon you.”, “I love you”, etc, etc. When he started to walk up to me and reach towards me, I ended up doing something that I thought was the best idea at the time: I pulled out my phone, and said “I’m going to have to call the police on you darling if you come any closer to me.” He stopped, turned around, and walked away. It actually worked!

HOLLA ON THE GO: Scared to Respond

I was walking by myself in a wooded/residential area and noticed a sketchy looking guy with a bike at the end of a street. I turned around to walk back the way I came and he got on his bike and slowly passed me, saying “hey how you doing.” I ignored him and he got into a car, and then several guys started calling out, laughing, saying “damn shorty what you doing.” They drove off and deliberately veered the car close to me. I was scared to respond because I was alone.

Freya’s Story: You’re just an asshole. Period.

I was walking back home through town when a guy walked into my path, blocking it and holding out his hand to try and get me to shake it saying “oooh alright love, my name’s Dan, what’s yours?”. I ignored him and carried on walking which then prompted him to say “fine be like that you stupid frigid bitch”, I turned around and asked “what did you say? Why did you call me a bitch just because I didn’t want to talk to you?”. I crossed to the other side of the road and carried on walking and he said to his friend “wow well she’s obviously on her fucking period!”. Err no, you’re just an asshole.

HOLLA ON THE GO: Way to be part of the problem

Harasser: middle aged guy, balding. Made disgusting comments about wanting to have anal sex with me while I was talking home from the office. The woman with him thought it was funny. Way to be a part of the problem lady.

Lizette’s Story: Shaking and Upset All Day

This morning I was harassed and followed for three blocks by a man on my way to the office from the Farragut West metro. This man walked closely next to and behind me, making lewd remarks about the way I looked, how I walked and about being Asian. He was loud, sometimes shouted, and on the sidewalk and at street corners other commuters stared and didn’t say a word. I lost him when I ducked into a cafe to make sure he didn’t follow me into my office building. I’ve been shaking and upset all day.

HOLLA ON THE GO: Restaurant Rudeness

i worked in a high end Italian restaurant, everyday anything I wore I would get hollered by the staff. I felt very uncomfortable.. I am just 19 years old and these men are in their mid 40s and above..plus this was a new job for me.. I couldn’t step in the kitchen without hearing a whistle or someone trying to grab my butt.. It just got to the point that I had to quit that job.. And now am afraid to work in any other restaurants due to the harassment that happens in the kitchen/ restaurant.
