HOLLA ON THE GO: I was walking by the river with my boyfriend…
I was walking by the river with my boyfriend, around 9pm. In front of us, a group of men, drunk. We walk faster so we pass by them, and one shouts “very very hot”.
I was surprised that me holding the hand of my boyfriend wasn’t enough to prevent this kind of harassment.
He ignored it, me too, when we were a bit further I grasped him tighter and he finally asked “are you okay?”, realizing only then I was crazy angry. We talked about it for a while, I tried to explain how uncomfortable, disgusted, angry and unsafe this kind of comments make me feel. And how it is difficult for me to answer right back, even if I would like to.
