Street Harassed at the Bus Stop: “I’m not your ‘big momma!'”

Location: Pennsylvania Ave & 8th St SE (Eastern Market)
Time: Evening Rush Hour (3:30pm-7:30pm)

On the way to a dinner meeting for work, a man approaches me who is also waiting for the bus. I didn’t know how to reply to his “Hi, big momma.” I think I said, “….hi” and anxiously awaiting for the bus to arrive.

I was walking outside of Eastern Market and three teenage boys walked
by me. One of them stared me up and down and said, “damn girl, you
sure are you beautiful.” The second boy said,”yeah!” and the third
made a hmmmm sound.

Early Morning Groper

It’s early in the morning and I’m heading to work. As I go up the escalator at the Eastern Market metro a man says “good morning” to me and I say, “good morning” back. He then goes on to say, “I just want to tell you that you have the most beautiful ass I have ever seen.” I start walking up and he grabs me! I can’t believe it!! I just start walking faster and don’t turn around. When did good morning become an invitation for vulgar remarks and groping?

After this incident, I stopped responding to men when they say, “hi” or “good morning” on the street. Now, I get called a “bitch” for ignoring them.

Orange Line Thigh Grabber

posted in: Uncategorized | 4

This morning I was switching from the green line to the orange at L’Enfant Plaza. I get on the train, sit down and a guy sits down next to me. I knew he was up to something right away because there were multiple empty seats. He asks me if I have enough room. I said “yes”. He then slowly inches closer to me as he tells me he doesn’t want me to feel squashed. I scoot closer to the window so he isn’t touching me.

He makes a comment about the weather and asks me if it is supposed to rain. I said “yes, I believe so”. He starts making small talk and while he is not touching me I am a bit suspicious. He asks me where I grew up. I tell him, he says “me too.” He tells me I am very pretty. I say “thank you”. He then asks me how old I am, I tell him. He says, “me too.” He tells me how young I look and then he asks if I would like his number. I say, “no thanks”. So he asks if he can have mine. I tell him I have a boyfriend. He tells me that’s alright, he is engaged but we could just be friends. I say, “no, I don’t know you.” He says “that’s the point, we can get to know each other.” I tell him no thanks again and luckily we are at my stop. Because I am sitting on the inside, he has to stand up to let me out.

As I move out of the seat, I feel his hand graze the inside of my thigh and then I feel him brush up against my ass. My blood boils. I tell him he shouldn’t touch women he doesn’t know and he smiles at me. There are a handful of people on the train and they all just stare. As I get off the train he yells at me to have a nice day. I can’t believe I was sucked in by small talk.

While some may find it faltering to be hit on during their morning commute, no one enjoys a morning groping and it is sexual harassment. Since this happened, I have received criticism from both male and female friends regarding the way I handled the situation. I’ve been told I was “too nice” or that I should have gotten up as soon as he sat down.

Bottom line: he never should have grabbed my thigh.

“Hiss Hiss”

I just walked out of my office in Eastern Market to grab something to eat. I am standing on the corner of the 8th & F waiting for the light to change when I hear, “Hiss hiss.” There is a guy sitting in his car and hissing at me in order to get my attention. I pay no attention so he starts yelling at me. The light changes and I quickly cross the street.
