HOLLA ON THE GO: Walking along the street…

Walking along the street I walk everyday to get to class yesterday, a random person on a bike going very fast went up to me and grabbed the left side of my behind. I was so shocked and stood there, feeling so many emotions at once. Disgusted, dirty, violated, unsafe. He kept riding forward and turned around and kept staring in my direction. I thought he was coming back to attack me but he went to another girl on the other side of the street and did the same thing to her- grabbed her behind. I was so disgusted- as a victim of previous sexual assault, I knew this was going to traumatize me even more. I ran over to her and starting crying and letting all my emotions out. She told me that this was so common around the streets of LA and that it really is not okay. Why do random scums think it is okay or fun to commit such disgusting things? Do they know how much of a detrimental psychological effect their actions will have on the victim? Just because we are in public walking to and from our house to get to school- does not mean we are public property that can be touched. Then again, these people are such lowlives and society can’t help them as much as it tries to. I am so sad, violated, and depressed from this situation- as a person who has been sexually harassed/assaulted in multiple situations the past few years- this is just even more traumatizing.
