My friend and I were walking out of the Loblaws at College Square around 8pm on Wednesday when a group of guys pulled up in a car beside us. They rolled down the windows and the guy in the back seat started motioning for us to come over, while yelling “Hey! Hey,
I like you!” at us. My friend ignored it, but he kept yelling at us until I turned around and yelled “Well we don’t like you!”. At this point, his friends started laughing and they drove off.
Today my fiance and I were walking home around the Algonquin College residences. Two male students decided to shout out to us, or more accurately to my fiance, “Fuck her in the pussy!” They drove off too fast for us to respond. I am upset because I was disrespected and it felt like my fiance was disrespected just from his proximity to me.
I was walking toward the bus stop on Rideau Street by the mall, when a man of about 25 yelled loudly at me (I had headphones in and still heard). He was yelling about how I had a “nice ass, and those hips he would like to see move in bed”. I was so shocked, all I could respond was “No thank you, please leave me alone”, as he proceeded to make sexual gestures. I was so disgusted, but when a man came up to me to make sure I was okay my faith in humanity was restored a little.
I was walking along the Canal near Hogsback Falls with my mom and my roommate when an older man riding his bike stopped directly in front of us, stared for a few seconds, and then said “Beautiful women, so many threesomes, so little time.” We didn’t respond (I wish I had), and he stayed on the path and stared at us from behind until we rounded the corner. So gross.
Walking out of Blair station on my way home from work, an older man pulled my purse from behind. When I turned around, he told me my belt was undone. He stood close to me and rubbed my waist and stomach. I tried to push his hand away and check my belt. The belt on my jacket was fine. Meanwhile, he kept grabbing my waist. I pushed him off and was too shocked to do anything else. I actually said “thanks for letting me know. I’ve got it now”. He said “you’re welcome” and walked off.
Getting told to suck your dick while on the phone with my grandma was a real class act on rideau & sussex tonight… Real class act dude, I gave him a piece of my mind! Sorry for the language grandma!
A while ago, I was walking home in Sandy Hill, and a couple of guys standing on the steps of a local bar yelled at me, “Hey sexy, where you going!” I proceeded to ignore them. They kept calling after me. When they didn’t get a smile or any flirtatious response back (I’m assuming that’s what they wanted), they proceeded to insult me and say “Fuck you. Bitch.” I was so angry and disgusted, I wanted to turn around and freak out at them, but I was way too scared for my own safety. This is just one instance of many that I have experienced.
