Guys hanging out by Metro station.
Feeling the need to say things I fortunately didn’t understand.
After I rejected one of their advances,two men called me a dumb bitch (among other things) and threatened to beat me while they acted as if they were following me into the subway station.
I decided to go to Point Dume for the day alone to relax.
I was continually followed by a creepy man with long blonde hair, broken eye glasses, and wearing only a thong.
Everywhere I went he would follow me and come up and talk to me.
Each time he would ask me to take a photo of him from behind.
There were very few people at the beach that day and I was scared he might try to assault me.
I ended up leaving early because he would not stop following me.
He ruined my day at the beach.
I find this to be so unfair. I just wanted to be alone and enjoy the peacefulness of the ocean.
My girls and I were out having a good time just talking and chilling at the bars. After closing time we walked out to wait near a pizza joint for our cab.
While we were waiting these two men started aggressively yelling out sexual comments at us. We all wanted nothing to do with this.
Before I realized what was going on they started to try and touch me.
I yelled stop and three men came and got these men to stop what they were doing to us.
We walked a far distance to wait for our ride. We thought it was over, we were in a crowded area, there were police around.
I was looking for the cab when my shoulders were grabbed and I was thrown to the ground. I got up to realize it was one of the men who had been harassing us.
I ran after him yelling for people to help that this man had just attacked me but no one did.
The police were unable to find him or do anything about it.
My elbows are now bruised all the way up to my wrist and I cant lift my left arm because my shoulders hurt so much.
I am so over being seen as an object. I am so over being seen as something to be controlled. I am so over people saying this is not about gender. Women/anyone should be able to say no and not be hurt for it. I feel like I can’t win. If we say yes we are a slut and if we say no we are a prude and need to be punished. Either way society is saying we are asking for “it”. FUCK THIS. No one deserves the consequences of this twisted patriarchy.
My wife was verbally harassed by two men, both mid to late 20s, 5’10”-ish.
They commented on her butt and her legs and told her she was their angel.
She turned around and reported it directly to the apartment complex office.
While out walking, two men in a truck followed alongside me in traffic for many blocks whistling and making kissing and sucking noises at me.
I ignored them, but it continued until I reached a spot where some police officers were parked.
I hunkered down near them, fighting back tears, until the creeps finally drove off.
Dude grabbed me from behind and started trying to grind with me without my consent.
When I ripped his hand off of my body, he shoved me and told me that if I get in his way, I better be prepared to dance with him.
I was at this bar last night with friends. It was near closing time and we got separated.
I circled the place trying to find them and got grabbed by guys multiple times…on my arms, shoulders, and even once on the thigh.
I was freaked out and became very upset, one of the workers saw me and only told me to get out of his way.
