I’m 15 and my school has a swimming unit during our Phys. Ed. classes. So, I go to the locker room and change into my swimsuit and when I come out this group of boys quite obviously looks me up and down and one of them even whistles at me. Meanwhile, my MALE teacher looks on and does nothing. Now, I should say that this happens all the time while a have a rather large chest and butt for my age but, I am 15 and it’s still degrading and it still feels awful. And the boys still do it after countless reporting I’ve done and other girls in my class have done. But, I swear the second one of them touches me or any other girl in my class I will have no problem getting physical if that’s what it takes.
There was a rape scene in a scary movie that my husband and I went to last night. Just as the girl in the movie was about to be raped, a man in the movie theater laughed. Loudly.
I was at a club a couple of weeks ago, and this guy came up to me and told me to smile. I gave him the worst look I had ever made, but he still continued to make the ‘smile’ gesture, until I glared at him and mouthed ‘why’ and he backed off, but didn’t look like he understood in the slightest. Later that night, me and my friend were walking to the bus stop and we were continually harassed, and especially her who was wearing a low-cut top, of which one guy decided that it was okay for him to yell out ‘nice boobs … both of you!!!’ in the middle of Old Street Roundabout. I later said to my friend to cover up just because the harassment was becoming consistent and I didn’t want her to feel uncomfortable, and then she asked me a question that is continuously on my mind ‘they’re the ones being inappropriate, I should not have to cover myself up to stop their idiotic and vulgar behaviour’. So true.
