Victory: “Sexual harassment is a crime leave me alone or I will report you.”

After school yesterday I was walking to get on the Q train and some guy comes up to me and goes, “You got great legs baby!”

Ok im 15 he was like 43. Gross. So I said, “Excuse me, you probably have a daughter older than me.”

He goes, “Sorry you just look so sexy in that schoolgirl outfit I couldn’t help it and you do have great legs.”

So then I said, “Sexual harassment is a crime leave me alone or I will report you…”

He turned and walked the opposite direction in a very rapid fashion!

I count that as a win for me because I hear things like that all the time and I finally stood up for my self and said something. I shouldn’t have to feel dirty because of some asshole!

    Applause. Right on! That’s awesome! I wish every high schooler and middle schooler knew this! You did so great! I am really truly glad to hear this. Usually people have no idea what to do or how to stand up for themselves. Yay!

    Well done 🙂 It is horrible that some old man thinks he can speak like that to a school girl. You should be proud of yourself for standing up for your rights.
