New submission : Lo’s story!

Since having my baby I have been experiencing a new to me type of harassment where many different men feel the need to made sexual, inappropriate and uncomfortable remarks to me in public or on the transit when I’m with my child. It is so uncomfortable and makes me feel unsafe but it seems as though I can’t tell them to back off or stop because this wave of anxiety or fear hits me suddenly. I don’t know how to shake it and I don’t know why this seems to happen so often and especially when I am alone with my child. It happens on the bus, at the mall, sometimes in taxis and I was even followed in the library this weekend. I want to feel safe and be able to go out alone with my baby; I avoid any areas I might have to walk if I know it won’t be populated with many people and also avoid being out after sunset.
