Shocked. Violated. Strangely ashamed that I didn’t do more… I was on my usual commute to work. From Brooklyn, my boyfriend and I take the L train together. He gets off at 14th St/Union Square, and I continue on to 8th Avenue and transfer to the A express train. I was getting off of the … Continued
Guy at 125th street ABCD station whistled as I walked past and then stared at me as I gave him an angry look. Made me feel vulnerable, uncomfortable, objectified, and angry.
I was in the bus stop doing nothing but thinking about my next exam when a guy comes and starts shouting : hey cutie, cutie come, we’ll take you for free anywhere you want!. At first, I was just shocked since I had never been in a situation like that, trying to figure out if … Continued
