When I started walking places alone at about 12 years old, they honked at me. I hated it. They’d yell shit out of their cars. I used to go buy sodas at a restaurant nearby, and it wasn’t uncommon to be scared into dropping it.
The worst part was how people reacted when I told them it made me uncomfortable.
“Oh, it just means that they think you’re pretty.”
No. Yelling “bitch, get in the car” doesn’t mean that they think I’m pretty.
More recently, family says that it’s just high school boys being stupid. That doesn’t help, and that isn’t true.
I don’t feel safe walking. And certain family members continue to insist that I should do so, and that I’m just making this up to get rides.
No. I’ve been in tears and cried while explaining what’s going on! That’s not faking it, and it isn’t unreasonable.
