One evening I was walking over to a friend’s house who lives about 10 minutes from my house. It was winter so although it was only 7 pm it was rather dark. I stuck to the main street but ended up passing about three men in their early twenties. They were all climbing into a truck when they saw me walking by. They began to shout at me, saying things like, “You’re hot!” and, “You should come hang out with us!” One of them began to approach me and I began to walk faster. As soon as I turned the corner he stopped following me. The whole thing was rather terrifying but infuriating at the same time because I have the right to feel safe in my own neighbourhood.
