New Submission : Homophobic harassment

Walking home holding hands with my girlfriend at night when a man on a bicycle stops on the sidewalk in front of his and leans over to pick something up. Says something inaudible to us as we walk by and since we ignored him he yells “I know you girls are lesbians but you can … Continued
