Harassed on the bus

On my usual route to work, I was subjected to 20 minutes of sexually explicit whispering and moaning, accompanied by a man touching himself through his clothes. This was my first experience of this kind of overt harassment. I didn’t know what to do. So I did nothing. I should have told the bus driver. I should have moved seats. But in all honesty I was terrified. I didn’t want to draw any more attention to myself.

So I got to work and cried.
