Last night, walking home from U St with a friend who was a survivor of sexual assault and already nervous to be walking anywhere at night–she was coming home with me so I could drive her back to her apartment. Two guys roll up in white pickup and drive slow along side us, the guy in the passenger seat saying, “How much for an hour?” several times until I notice. “Fuck you, get the fuck out of here,” I yell at them. As they speed up and pull away they call me a bitch.
Wish I’d written down their license number and called the police to report them for solicitation.
