THINGS MEN I DONT KNOW HAVE CALLED OUT TO ME ON THE STREETS OF NYC AND HOW EACH ONE MADE ME FEEL

πŸ˜ΌπŸ“ž
  1. β€’
    "Ring-a-ling-ding" (As used his finger to mime an erection)
    Disgusted. Dirty. Ick
  2. β€’
    (Accompanied by applause) "Oh very nice ladies!"
    Sad. Just so sad.
  3. β€’
    "Yo sex bucket you okay?"
    What? Why did you call me that?
  4. β€’
    "Yo where you going? Where you going? Ok I'm coming with you" (as he followed me onto the subway)
    Terrified...
  5. β€’
    "You lost?? You want my number??"
    Nervous. He said it aggressively and spit near my feet as I walked by
  6. β€’
    "I like your strength"
    Told myself that strength was to just stare straight ahead and not acknowledge
  7. β€’
    "Can I get under there with you, baby?" (In the pouring rain, referring to my umbrella)
    Ugh disappointed that the rain hasn't washed away misogyny
