Have you ever been so angry that you felt like hurting someone – in the worst way possible? This is how I feel about street harassment when random people tell you unwanted things then insult you when you do not respond.
This act is sickening and disgusting! How can some men/boys be so inconsiderate and heartless? They can change a person’s mood in so many ways. Here are a few experience that I’ve had: Imagine that you and your mom have just had a conflict and you come out on the road to get some fresh air. The first thing you hear is, “Hey sexy, you looking thick!”
I recall another time where I was hanging out with some friends and a group of men looked at me and said. “I’m watching you, you are shaping up just fine.” These comments not only upset me but scare me. As a young lady, I do not want to walk to go anywhere. I am scared. Will these acts of street harassment ever stop? Will ever feel safe walking from my home to a nearby shop?
