I have two new incidents of street harassment to tell you about. Brilliant.
Harasser 1: I was on holiday in Brighton with my female friend. We had just been strolling along Brighton pier and were having a pleasant time. After winning a couple of things in the arcade, I was thrilled.
However, this feeling of contentment was cut short by some insensitive bastard who clearly had no respect or consideration for my feelings. As my friend and I walked through one of the lanes, this idiot passed me and as he did he looked at me, said, “Ew” and walked on casually. I didn’t have a chance to react. We walked on and I later told my friend what had happened (she didn’t hear him). I was left feeling mad and upset that some total stranger could be so disgusted with the way I look. It was yet another knock back on my self esteem. Something so minor but a major affect on me. Thanks for ruining the rest of my day, jerk.
Harasser 2: This happened today when I was on the bus. I was actually with my boyfriend. A middle aged man was sitting in the front (My bf and I were sitting on the side seats) and this creep proceeded to stare at me throughout the whole journey. Typically I was wearing a rather revealing top, again I will mention my boobs were not spilling out! Just showing some cleavage! It was just typical that I was wearing something that showed some flesh of an intimate part of my body which will get any pervert drooling. He made me feel uncomfortable during the entire journey. Even when I got off, he continued to leer at me, turning his neck as the bus drove off. What a slimeball.
Until next time (don’t be surprised if it’s next week)
