Walking from my car to my friends apartment across the street one car going one way “you fat ass!” “who do you think you are” other car comes from other direction “hey sexyyyyyy”
I was walking the two blocks from the cornerstone to my apartment when an older man ran across the street yelling “Miss! Hey miss!” He came up behind me and grabbed my shoulder to turn me around. When he saw me up close he looked confused. “I thought you were a woman,” he said as he quickly walked away.
Mail carrier near a local park, constantly touching me and following me on walks, pulled down the front of my dress and told me I shouldn’t have so many tattoos if I don’t want him to look at them. Constantly knocking on my door for 5-10 min at a time. Yelling through my window if I don’t answer.
A man yelled animal noises at me out of a moving vehicle.
I was walking half a block from a parking lot in shockoe bottom to a club on 18th street. it was star wars night, so i was dressed as ‘sexy vader’ in a corset, a skirt, long gloves, and lady gaga-esque heel-less heels on.(pictured) i was holding hands with my boyfriend and crossing grace street when a guy in the passenger’s side of a car yelled out the window (as the car came to a stop, also) ‘GOD DAMN YOU ARE SO FUCKING FINE I WANNA FUCK YOU RIGHT HERE IN THE STREET! YOU WANNA GET IN THE CAR BABY?’ obviously, i laughed, because … really? he then yelled ‘YOU DONT KNOW WHAT YOU’RE MISSING, BITCH!’ and drove away. i thought it was hilariously pathetic.
I was walking back to my residence hall at school after making an emergency Kroger run and to get into my hall from Kroger, I have to cut through a corner in front of my campus bookstore where we get a ton of traffic and we had paid canvassers out collecting petition signatures for economic development in one of the poorest parts of Richmond. I signed the petition and then the guy collecting signatures asked me in a whisper (after we’d chatted for like a minute) if I had a boyfriend (no) ..and then he asked me if I was interested in having a boyfriend (no on both accounts right now).. I think my non verbal “fuck off” slowly gave him the hint.
I made him apologize with 11 words.
While walking to work along one of Cary Street’s less immaculate parts, I came across a house with about 6 or 7 guys littered across the front steps. From my first glimpse of them 100 feet away, I knew there would be catcalling. As I passed, the whole group erupted into jeers and lipsmacking – and one guy standing at the top of the stairs began miming an enormous pair of boobs on himself.
I didn’t stop – and I looked right at that guy, and said, “I know, right? I’m so jealous of you and your boobs!”
His face was PRICELESS. He was so shocked and confused, that food actually dripped out of his mouth.
And then, to my receding back, he called out, “I’m sorry!”
I was on the way to my local coffee shop when a man i do not know said to me hey pretty and when i did not respond he then said hey ugly thats what i should have said the first time. Not only is this rude and uncalled for but utterly juvenile.
Thanks for That.
