Need a good reason to hollaback? Here’s one.

First time to deal with a train masturbator. This guy was on the 6 Local from 42nd street heading downtown. He was jerking off through his jeans, but the gross part was that he wasn’t doing it to me, but to the little girl across from him! She must have been 6 yrs old. They … Continued

An Apologetic Snake

I was standing on the corner of 26th st. and 7th ave. in Manhattan enjoying my lunch break on a beautiful day.

Nice Peanut, Psycho

I just read about Hollaback on Jezebel. I’m really glad you’re doing this – and what perfect timing too! Two days ago, I was walking to my car after work. A man was walking down the sidewalk in parallel, and I noticed him because he was staring at me intently. I didn’t feel comfortable, so … Continued

You Want to Lick My Asshole Why?

It was summer 2009, maybe 6pm, and I was walking back from putting my laundry in the wash at a laundry mat right off of Washington Square Park on West 4th street in NYC. I was wearing shorts, a billowy t-shirt, and flip flops. I had my ipod on. A man who looked to be … Continued
