New submission from April
I am 14 years old, this past week I have been harassed FOUR times. I live in a safe area, but there are a lot of building crews. And lots of horrible men who will make comments. The first time I just walked by a building site, men wolf whistled and shouted ‘OOOOH BOOBIES”‘ this shook me a bit but my parents and I went to report it. The next week I got several forty year old men making nasty comments ‘oh you must taste so good, I want to f*ck you so on and so forth. Yesterday I was harassed by a man walking on the other side of the road saying ‘PSST ASS GIRL LET ME:…” I burst into tears he stood laughing and mocked me. I got away. Today, I had a pervert brush past me and grab my boob.
I hate this, why should women/girls be afraid to walk outside and fear being raped/harrassed? i got a rape alarm which is really effective. I also reported all these guys to the police. The best thing, don’t look at them, don’t give them the attention they want. Go to self defence classes and get an alarm. When you are a young teen its best not to get into a verbal fight with them. I’ve had my twelve year old sister harassed just as much. This has to stop, don’t be afraid to speak up, this has to end.
