While walking to my local bus station, I walked past a man who stared at my lower body and made a comment in a language I didn’t understand. As I looked back at him, he also looked back with a creepy grin on his face and I told him, “Don’t stare, that’s not okay!” It … Continued
I had a good day; a really great day, actually. After a couple months of hopping around from temp job to part-time job to freelance job, I had my first day at a great new company, where I can already see myself becoming invested and I’m excited for what’s to come. After work I went … Continued
Another piece of straw in the haystack that suffocates women. While waiting for the walk sign at a traffic signal by my house, a man pulled up to the curb and leered at me and blew a particularly lewd kiss. As usual, the perpetrator quickly turned right and drove away.

So catcalling makes me REALLY angry. And it never used to happen to me. Or I was SO desperate for male attention as that the rare times it did happen, I took it as a complement. I do not feel that way about it now. It’s just started to happen more and more. Which is … Continued
I’m not sure that I feel 100% comfortable sharing this experience on the internet, but the more I have thought about it the more I think it is important for someone else to hear.
