“Don’t let these perverts get you down!”

I live in NYC and get harassed pretty much every day. Yesterday I was in Union Square and this old man walked up to me and said, “Nice tits baby.” I ignored him and he proceeded to follow me from behind for two blocks saying things that I won’t even post here. I turned around and said, “Wtf is wrong with you?”

He took a left turn like one second later!

I’m 25 and have grown up here. I remember the first time I was harassed I was 12 and the guy was an old man too. At this point I am fed up and wish I could hit them with a baseball bat!

I recently found this site and I am proud of everyone for sharing their stories! Don’t let these perverts get you down!
