Today I was verbally assaulted by a random guy with whom I was standing on the pedestrian crossing. I was wearing a skirt with knee socks. He was weird dressed, he was talking to himself. When he recognises me, he started to have hints (e.g. “mm, your knees are so sexy” or “Would you like to come with me?”) But, I wear it because I like it, not for bringing someone’s attention, and I don’t indicate to anyone to I would like to chat up. I feel comfortable and self-confidently with this outfit, but with those verbal abuses I am only starting to feel like a “bitch” and underestimate myself. This kind of sexism is not so serious, but also really important.
