My roommates and I were walking to Mt. Pleasant to celebrate our friend’s birthday when a group of three men walked by.
One of the men slipped his hand under my dress and up my thigh as he passed by. I was in shock and could do little more than turn around say “What the F***?!?!” The worst part was the look of satisfaction on his face – as if he was proud of what he had just done. My roommates grabbed my arm and we continued walking. In hind sight, I wish I would have slapped him or called the police or SOMETHING!
I hate that this ONE incidence has stuck with me – I still feel uncomfortable & paranoid wearing dresses in public.
