Your street harassment stories: “I definitely didn’t do anything to provoke it, nothing.”

10 Jul

7/6/12, 7:30pm, Laos Transit Center Tucson AZ: “My name is Sarah and this was about a half an hour ago, it’s 7/6/2012. I was at the Laos Center waiting for my bus to leave, the number 16, and I was walking to the bus from the number 3 and these three men, these young punk types, were sitting in the chair and they were talking about me, like egging their friend on about banging me and doing me, but that I’m overweight so he’d have to use all of his strength. And he kept saying “aw hell no, hell no, definitely not” and I heard them talking about and I definitely didn’t do anything to provoke it, nothing. Like, I was going home from work and it was very upsetting for me and there’s nothing that can be done about this, and people can just say what they want and you can’t do anything about it. I didn’t know if I should say something. Normally I’m the type of person that would say something but I wasn’t a hundred percent sure that they were talking about me or they were talking about someone they knew, but it was as I was walking up and there were no other females around so I can only assume that they were talking about me. And then as I sat down behind them, I heard them talking about other people as they were walking by too. *” – Sarah
