Harassment at T.S. McHugh

I'm sharing this story on behalf of someone else. This person went out to a bar with her coworkers after a shift at the restaurant they work at. She'd changed clothes before meeting up with them, and one of the male coworkers made a comment about how he "wished she dressed more like that at work, because she looks so much better/hotter." I hope they are able to get this…

Leave My Ass Alone

There is a homeless shelter very close to where live that I pass by every day. Often, I get leers and comments about my body from the men hanging around outside of it as I pass. Today, one of them said, “damn, look at that ass” and I decided I’d had enough. I’d previously held … Continued
