I was walking to my friends house one night to a sleepover.
I heard someone walking behind me so I walked faster until I came to a street light.
There was a man probably in his 40s, I was 15.
He came close to me and asked how much I charged for sex.
I was scared and I didn’t know what to say.
I said “um, no.” and kept walking.
He followed me for 2 blocks until I started yelling at him to stop following me.
He showed up at my house, unannounced.
He was outside my window.
I texted my best friend.
He was drunk.
He hurt me emotionally.
He never should have violated my space.
He could have raped or hurt me.
It’s scary to think I don’t have to go outside to face harassment.
I was drunk.
Riding a hotel elevator.
I was sitting in the corner when the newspaper delivery guy came in, crouched down to ask if I was okay.
He then grabbed me between my legs.
A man followed me in his car, slowing down to a creep.
He thought I was a middleschooler, because we were just outside a middle school.
He tried to get me into his car.
I yelled at him and he took off.
I overheard two of my classmates discussing an incident of a man grabbing one of their hands.
She jumped on to her (male) friend who showed up.
Yay for assault!!
My friend Holden stole my lunchbox and then passed it to Jackie and didn’t give it back.
I think that’s bullying and it should stop!
If I talk about it, then it gets worse and makes him harass and stalk me even more.
I have been silenced.
I witnessed this.
People were sending death threats to a transwoman because she was not ‘politically correct’.
