Public Harassment: I was in the…

I was in the grocery store, using their electric cart because I am disabled from a car accident in 2008. I am also obese due in most part to medication, including Chemotherapy. I was traveling down an aisle and there were two other people, apparently a mother and teenage daughter. As I approached and smiled when they looked at me, the mother snarled and said, "If you weren't so fat…

Public Harassment: I went to get…

Yesterday, I went to get my nails done with a friend and afterwards she dropped me off at the metro station. I was meeting another friend for dinner, but she was about 20 minutes away. I decided to wait for her inside the station because I thought it would be safer that waiting on the street corner, so I went down to the platform and sat at one end of…

Public Harassment: I just turned 14

So I just turned 14 about a month ago and I look even younger than that (I have a baby face and I’m short). I was walking on the street with my two cousins, walking my dog and taking my 13 year old cousins baby sister on a ride on her stroller. There were no adults around. We were in a public park and there were a bunch of teenage…

Public Harassment: I was walking on…

I was walking on the street when a random biker passed by, slowed down near me and shouted at me angrily. I couldn’t clearly hear what he said, but it was along the line of “crazy girl, walk on the pavement!” or “you go on the pavement." I was so startled because I had just experienced sexual street harassment and this experience triggered the trauma. I felt so scared and…

Public Harassment:

An 8-10 year old boy on a bike cycled up to me while I was sitting outside a cafe drinking my coffee and reading something on my phone. From behind he reached around and groped me. He cycled away. I couldn’t find his parent. I reported it to security. I feel angry and violated and like nothing will happen because he’s a child but he’s going to grow up worse.…

Public Harassment: I was on my…

I was on my way home from the dentist yesterday when I decided to stop at the dollar tree to get a few little Christmas items. Not that my choice of clothing matters, but for the record I was wearing a baggy collard shirt, no makeup and pants. As I was browsing I notice a man intently staring at me and when I looked over at him he licked his…

I was walking through a home improvement store and I passed a man, who was another shopper, standing in the isle. As I walked by, he commented on how I looked. I am a teen. This man was at least 25 if not 30 years old. I happened to pass him again later and he repeated the comment. I stood up as tall as I could and walked a little…

Public Harassment: I was on the…

I was on the subway before the pandemic. It was afternoon, after school. There were 4 high school boys standing together at the door. Two boys were "play-punching" one of the others and laughing. I got the feeling that the boy being punched wasn't having a good time. The women seated near me seemed to be uncomfortable. The men seated nearby seemed to be amused by this! No one did…

Public Harassment: I was just walking…

I was just walking home while ten year olds were screaming at me that I was asian. They used stereotypes and made fun of how i look. I literally feel unsafe at a place where I should feel safer then my old place. But now I'm not so sure anymore because I'm getting harassed by kids. I don't think anybody should feel unsafe all the time by just walking on…

He commented on how I looked in yoga pants. I told him I wasn’t interested and continued to walk down the street. I crossed the street. He followed me and continued to ask me my…

Public Harassment: Molestia sessuale treno

I was on the train headed to Bergamo, and this person started masturbating while looking at me. I remained motionless because I didn't know what to do and I changed places. I felt humiliated, sad and guilty for not acting. Unfortunately I have not reported ... Ero sul treno diretto verso Bergamo, e questa persona ha iniziato a masturbarsi guardandomi. Sono rimasta immobile perché non sapevo cosa fare e ho…

Recently up at college there have been so many incidents. Within the last week there have been 3. Today I went to a small business and started looking around for games for my PS3. While I was looking and pulling games the guy sat down at eye level with my butt and stared. When I'd turned around as he talked asking a lot of questions the look in his eye…
