Approached by a Stranger

My three friends and I were sitting on a bench in Dupont Circle the other night just talking when a sleazy man approached us. He started telling us that we were having too much fun and we were sexy. Then he turns to me and says “Damn big girl, I’d fuck that pussy up! I have to leave because you’re making me too hot. Damn!”

My friends and I sat there completely shocked. None of us knew what to do. We felt completely violated and dirty. I wish I had said something to him at the time. Maybe I should have called him out on being completely inappropriate and disrespectful but I was too scared and shocked. I’ve been harassed on the street before, but this was definitely the worst.
