Today I was walking home from my class in Downtown Silver Spring around 2 in the afternoon. As I was crossing Spring Street, walking down 2nd Avenue, a man in a car stopped at the intersection leaned out his car window and said “You look nice today”.
This is definitely not the worst comment I’ve ever received. But I did not ask for this man’s opinion on how I look. It’s none of his business and it’s not his job to make comments to girls on the street about how they look.
I’m getting really fed up.
