New submission from Beth
I was waiting for a bus, at a bus stop when a man came up to me and asked me a question. I thought it was a random question, but answered anyway (it was about buses, but we were not in that part of London he was asking me about). I was drinking a drink, and the man made a “joke” about what I was drinking, and I just ignored it. He then asked me: “What are you doing later?” I replied with: “That doesn’t matter.” His reply to me was: “I was only being friendly, you stupid bitch!” I did not say anything back to him. I thought that if he could verbally abuse me so quickly, and so unexplained, I can only question what else he was capable of doing if I said anything back.
Previous to this, another man felt the need to shout “sexy arse” at me whilst I was just walking and minding my own business. If this happens again, I honestly want to work up the courage and ask if they would like it if their mother, sister or someone close to them was spoken to in a similar way.
