Okay, this is actually what you do if you’re being sexually harassed in any kind of public space. Draw attention to it, preferably pull away and let EVERYONE know that someone is touching you. This will not only get him to get off you but he’ll definitely think about this situation next time he wants to do something like this.
Spreading the word.
My mom and I were talking about this today after hearing about a woman who was molested on a plane who said nothing until she was picked up at the airport by her parents. My mom looked at me and asked what I would do in that situation and I looked her dead in the eye and I told her “it would take me .02 seconds to realize what was going on and yell angrily, and then I would be straight on to bitch slapping him so hard he wouldn’t be able to see the punch I’d throw with the opposite hand”.
She nodded and accepted my salty language like a seasoned sailor.
I’ve had experience with this before, in Prague a group of five girls and I were followed by three men at night. After a while they started yelling at us, the most common being “how much?” Meaning how much we “cost” as prostitutes. Seeing as they weren’t going to stop, I turned on my heel, faced them (which surprised them), spat at their feet and responded with “You couldn’t afford me.” This prompted the other girls to start yelling back at them as well, starting with our spitfire Czech friend to start slinging curses in Czech as she and the rest of the girls came up beside me. Needless to say the men backed off and pretty much fled. They weren’t expecting a fight. It empowered me and encouraged the rest of the girls to yell back too.
I’ve heard that a lot of people don’t know what to do in this situation because they’ve been taught all their lives to be polite and non-aggressive. Keep your heads down or whatever.
Keep in mind that studies have shown that rapists look for victims who won’t fight back.
Remember that nobody has the right to touch you without your consent or harass you, and you have all the right to make the biggest fuss about it that you can possibly make.
Get angry. Be in command.
Okay but I wish I was the angry sassy me I am right now when a guy who barked at me walked up to me in a grocery store and asked if I recognized him then would follow us on our walks. Here’s the whole situation:
I was walking down residential streets a few blocks from my house around 11 at night and I walked past a car where a man barked as loud as he could at me. I jumped and continued walking then a few days later my gf and I were at the grocery store and this large older man walked up to me and asked if I recognized him. I shook my head and smiled politely and he said he barked at me and I said “oh” “pretty funny, huh?” and we walked away. We went on a walk later that day and apparently he lives a couple blocks from us and he pulled his bike next to us and tried making conversations and he said something like “naw no makeup could make me look good” I said “well, some people are just ugly” and he rode away. We changed our walking route and he still found us sometimes. It was really creepy but now I think he got kicked out of his house since there was an eviction notice.

Wanted to share this helpful tool with anyone who needs it. A lot of people have a hard time putting their feelings into words and identifying what emotions they are feeling. This is called a feeling wheel. It can help you get to the core emotion you are experiencing and help you name each feeling when you’re overwhelmed with many emotions
this is so cool
This person reached their sixth week of life following conception. They were not just a clump of cells. If you are going to advocate for the killing of unborn children, at least accept their humanity and stop believing the pro-choice lie.
Abortion kills an innocent living human being.
Just gonna pop in here because this is actually a cat fetus, not a human fetus. Fetal cats are typically grey, like the one shown above. If this was a human fetus it would be pink. You can see more here, as you can see they display two images with three 28 day fetuses, the top one is a cat, and is very similar to this one (Almost identical).
You’ll use literally anything for propaganda won’t you? (Another hint to this is human embryo’s do not keep their tails into fetal development at 6 weeks, humans lose their tail at 4 weeks, this is either not as developed as you claim… or definitely not a human The evidence is pointing to the latter).
Confusing cats for kids since it was convenient for them.
