Sometimes, I'm just tryna get from point A to point B and it never fails outta nowhere, some dude will feel like me walking outside my house is for the sole purpose of HIS entertainment. 

I know this has been discussed before, so you can look at this as a rant of sorts, but I'm SO Censored tired of being told to smile, being blatantly stared at while I'm reading my book, or feel like I just can't sit there and mind my own business without pretending to look at my phone, so I won't have to be bothered.....that's too much like right for some of these idiots Sleepy

Just last month coming home from work on the bus, some drunk bastard TOLD me he was gonna follow me home. I told the driver what happened and he got thrown off the bus. I have been followed home before and threatened with rape years ago, so sadly, I'm always on high alert when I'm out.

To be fair, I KNOW this can happen to both men and women.....but in reality, it DOES happen to mostly women. And I've gotten to the point where I'm sick of it!

"Street harassment is never a compliment.  If it were a compliment we would be like these are street compliments.  We call it street harassment because it's actually harassment."


"If you are truly giving  a genuine compliment then you probably aren't going to expect anything in return."

sh*t like this makes me apprehensive of working out outside.  I don't like to be spoken to much less have contact with a human being.  My focus and goal is to get 60 minutes of aerobics/cardio and go home.  At times I feel like I am living in Egypt.

@Modeless: You're pretty much damned if you do and damned if you don't, and it's way too many crazy folks out there. You just don't know what kind of crazy you're dealing with when this happens.

it is awful. i feel like i am in the Middle East in a country where women are not permitted to walk unescorted by a man and if they do they are open to be verbally attacked as well as open to physical attack. My view is dont say ish to me that you wouldnt say in front of your wife or in front of a dude that could kick your azz.

One of my friends, a professional model was shot when she ignored someone's street harassment/catcalls.

The 1st time that I went to Asia, I was harassed so badly by the Iranian men that were there that I barely got through my trip without being physically assaulted. I was chased and one guy tried to force himself into the phone booth that I was in and he had a beer in his hand trying to make me take it.

Women are not protected, especially Black women. Random azz men tend to see us as available to them for their pleasure and entertainment and get verbally & physically aggressive when we ignore/dismiss/reject them or attempt to protect ourselves from their cat calls and street harassmentOuch.

I remember walking down 125th St in Harlem one time and some dude that was at first trying to sell childrens books started trying to come on to me then followed me for blocks telling me off. I was ignoring him and told him to chill b/c I was informing the cops and he crossed the street. Buss how he saw me hours later and started following me harassing me again smh. Patience was gone, it was about 95 degrees and I kindly and calmly told him the hell off with a barrage of questions like I was channeling my 74 yr mama and he left me alone.
