“Look at the pretty twins.”

posted in: Eastern Market | 2

A few weeks ago, my coworker and I were walking in Eastern Market to get something to eat when I guy yelled, “hey pretty girls”, “look at the the pretty twins”.   We look nothing alike but both have blond hair so I guess in his eyes, we were twins.  Neither one of us felt like dealing with it so we just kept walking.

    How did this make you feel? Honestly, it sounds kind of cheerful to me compared to some of the crap I see going on in downtown DC. But these things are tonal and situational. What bothered you enough to report this as harassment?

      Hmm, could it be the idea that women want to go about their day without being ogled and commented on by some random guy? Did that ever occur to you that not every woman wants to be complimented on when going about their daily lives?
