Harassment Too Close To Home

Just two days ago, I was walking home after the Ride On Bus dropped me on Massachusetts Ave. I was about 100 feet from my house when a white truck pulled up and as it was going by, a man asked, “Hey honey, do you need something to blow?” He laughed and then drove away. I was completely disgusted.

    Makes you wonder what the men that do this ‘get’ from it? Does it make their day/night? Does it make them put up a point on some sort of scoreboard? Do they just get off making women cringe, feel uncomfortable, afraid? To me its a type of bullying. Getting off on exerting power of a sort over someone physically weaker.
