“You have two weapons.”

posted in: U Street | 1

I was waiting for the crosswalk light at 13th and U. The older man standing next to me leaned over and said, “You have two weapons on you, do you know that?” I ignore him.  He says, “Your legs – those are your weapons.”  I look right at him and say, “I don’t appreciate it when you make comments about my legs, you don’t even know me.” He shakes his head at me just as the light changes. As a walk down the escalator at the U Street metro I see him harass another woman.

    Oh the irony if at that point you’d kicked him…
