Too many guys think it’s alright to push themselves onto women. The increase in cat-calls on the streets, online harassment, and even unwanted attention on the metro are a growing problem. Why do they think it’s alright to continue their boorish behavior? Don’t they have mothers or sisters or wives that deserve respect, too? For some reason, they just don’t understand that not every woman they find attractive wants anything to do with them. This guy learned that lesson the hard way!
Guy on train: I’d sleep with you if you didn’t have so many tattoos.
Me: *turns up music*
Guy: I said I’d sleep with you if you didn’t have so many tattoos!
Me: *takes off headphones* Leave. Me. Alone.
Guy: Why the hell do you have so many tattoos?
Guy: Are you deaf as well as a piece of trash?
Lady by door: Hey. Leave her alone.
Guy: Are you her trash girlfriend? Stupid idiots, all tattooed like men. Disgusting waste of talent.
Lady: *moves forward, carefully moves jacket so only I can see the badge on her belt* Are you okay?
Me: Fine. Just wish he’d go away.
Lady cop: I can make that happen.
Guy: Oh, yeah, b***h? Who the hell are you? I’ll kill you!
Lady cop: And that’s what I was waiting for. *grabs guy, holds him against the door* Harassing women on the train was enough, but you just threatened a cop. You’re battin’ a thousand tonight.
Entire train: *applauds*
What would you do in that situation? The woman tried at first to “just ignore him,” advice that many people give when these things happen…but ignoring this guy wasn’t working. So she did the next thing: “tell him to back off.” Which she did…but that only encouraged him even more. What if the lady cop hadn’t been on the train that day? No one else was stepping in to help the girl being harassed by the guy. Would you have stepped in?
