I felt ashamed, dirty and scared- this man grossly vilified me in public, all because I stood up for myself and told him to stop ogling me.

New submission from Ivana

I was walking down the busy street one late summer afternoon last week, wearing a relatively modest summer dress. As I passed by a man in a neon Westminster Council jacket, he called out ‘sexy, you’re looking sexy’. I turned around and told him to put his eyes back in his head, and then continued to walk away, as he began to scream ‘fuck you you fucking fucker’ and ‘hey, go fuck your dad’ down the crowded street at me, as people turned and stared. I felt ashamed, dirty and scared- this man grossly vilified me in public, all because I stood up for myself and told him to stop ogling me. Since he appeared to be an employee of the council, I emailed a complaint to them and am yet to receive a response. There are no words for how disgusted this entire episode left me feeling.
