Light Rail: Harassed & Stalked

I used to take the light rail and bus in Seattle to get to work. There wasn’t a day that I didn’t experience catcalling. One time a guy followed me in his car from the light rail station all the way to my apartment. That wasn’t even the crazy part either. That particular day I … Continued

Stalked

Two men in a late seventies model camaro car drove past me first on the street I lived on, then again on the neighboring street, a third time on a cross street, where I hid behind a telephone pole and yard fence. I could hear the car on another nearby street. When they passed me … Continued

Streamline Tavern- QA

This is actually my second post in a row, since I just got harassed twice on my walk home from the grocery store. I hate that sunny days in Seattle bring out the worse in people… just wanted to go to the store and back in peace and enjoy the nice weather. Anyway, I was … Continued

Metropolitan Market- QA

I was walking home from the grocery store at the intersection of Warren Ave and Roy St. in lower Queen Anne, and I started hearing, “hey! Hey you! How you doing!” behind me/to my left. At first I didn’t realize they were talking to me, and then I finally turned around. It was a male … Continued

Harassed and Assaulted

I was sitting in a coffee shop, waiting for my friends to show up, when a man came up to me and starting asking me to look at him and talk to him. I did not respond to him, so he proceeded to harass me, saying, “Oh, you think you’re too pretty to talk to … Continued

Queen Anne CVS- bus stop

At my usual morning bus stop, I saw a man leer at me out of the corner of my eye and thought I heard him say something to me. Once I was farther away I looked back and saw him staring. Another man was also there with him. Fast forward a couple minutes and the … Continued

Racha- Lower Queen Anne

Today I was walking past Racha (Thai restaurant) in lower Queen Anne, and a guy standing outside of it loudly said, “Good morning!” to me. I turned and looked to glare at him, because I knew it wasn’t a “good morning” greeting that he gives everyone. It’s one he gives to girls walking by themselves … Continued

Indecent Exposure

I was returning to my car in the parking lot of my pharmacy, midday, and a man parked next to me called out. He was disabled and he asked me to assist him in putting his wheelchair together. It looked like he had his car and wheelchair set up so that he could put it … Continued

Continuous Harassment- DESC Shelter

Another day, another time getting harassed outside the homeless shelter by my house. I understand that the men who stay there come from all different levels of privilege and education and in some cases, mental ability. But I strongly feel that if they’re able to target a female walking alone in front of them and … Continued

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
