I’m Tired of Letting Gross Men…

I walk my two giant dogs every morning. To get to the nearby off-leash park, we cut through the parking lot of a large outdoor car wash, which employs mainly men. Walking past the car wash has always made me uncomfortable but, until today, the harassment was limited to staring. To be fair, my dogs are often the subject of public interest because they are giant. So I could never…

Threatened After Rejecting Harassment

When this guy tried to talk to me I told him I didn't talk to people I didn't know. Then he got very angry, told me I had a bad attitude and threatened to have me beat up.

Harassed near Alamo Square: “For what…

It was a pleasant, if a bit chilly, Saturday afternoon. I was walking down from Alamo Square when I noticed this man glancing back at me. At first, I didn't think much of it - after all, it is a public space. He then stopped in front of a nearby house and waited for me to pass by, muttering "ugly cunt" under his breath. I stopped, shocked, and turned around…

Masturbador público ebrio.

Iba tranquila en un bondi para mi casa, 8 meses de embarazo, micro atiborrado de gente un tipo sentado a mi lado masturbandose y nadie dijo nada, todos mirando el accionar del tipo e ignorandome a mi, era verano, traia una remera la cual además de mi pronunciada barrigota también acechaban mis senos pre parto.

Later That Night Donald Trump Was…

I was walking to the pharmacy last election day when a car pulled up beside me. The driver shouted something that started with "Hey darlin'", I ignored him and didn't hear the rest of what he said. I walked a little further and the same car pulled up beside me again, this time he said "I have a big cock and I'm about to cum" he then moaned as if…

I Went Numb and Tried to…

The following incidences occurred in Cleveland, Ohio. The first guy followed me to my apartment and wouldn't leave until I gave him a fake phone number. Unfortunately, he lived right across the street and continued to harass me for a month. Another guy in the neighborhood followed me from the corner store on his bike, all the while telling me "I was so pretty..." and calling me "a sexy Mamacita."…

Bus Stop Masturbator

I was waiting at the bus one night late and all alone. A man came near me and pretended to be on the phone. Meanwhile I became a bit scared because it was so obvious that he was faking his phone call. I lit a cigarette and tried to ignore him, when all of a sudden I realized his pants had been pulled down and he was masturbating in front…

Two Years of Harassment at the…

Translated post: A man in the local bar keeps staring at me insistently and has already called me over and over again for almost 2 years. It scares me and puts me under pressure.   Original submission: Un homme au bar du coin ne cesse de me regarder de manière insistante et m'a déjà interpellé a maintes reprises et cela depuis presque 2 ans. Il m'effraie et me met la…

The Silence of My Fellow Bus…

Everyday I ride the bus home from work, which takes about an hour. To pass the time I read books. Just today I got a call from my mother and chatted for about 15 minutes. When my phone call was over, I pulled out my book and started reading. All of the sudden I get a "Excuse me Miss," coming from the seat behind me. I do not like talking…

I Pretended Not to See Him

I was walking to the bus stop after a Zumba class, and a man ran down the street after me to tell me that he thought I was really beautiful and would I give him my number and go out with him. As he came up next to me and tried to wave at me to get my attention. I pretended not to see him and concentrated on the music…

I Could Tell He Wasn’t Harmless

I was walking along the road with my grandma, in the little village where she lives, when this man in a van pulls up beside us playing music and singing. He leered at us whilst singing, so I just glared at him. I could tell he wasn't harmless. Seeing that I wasn't amused, or scared of him, he started shouting at me. He said "you're a fucking ugly cunt" and…

I Just Want People to Help

It was yesterday and some guy followed me, started talking to me, and grabbing my hand. I told him to stop and walked away and called my friend – mind you it was 4 in the afternoon and so many people were walking by and I was yelling at this guy to stop and no one helped me. After I was like a block ahead of him I turn back…

What Did I Do to Deserve…

Was walking alone in the city centre at night – around half 1 in the morning to get food after a night out. I was apprehensive about going because it meant I had to walk alone myself. When halfway to my destination, three men in their 30s shouted at me, asking if I wanted to be fucked. I shouted back "get fucked," because I was angry that they felt that…
