Okay, this is actually what you do if you’re being sexually harassed in any kind of public space. Draw attention to it, preferably pull away and let EVERYONE know that someone is touching you. This will not only get him to get off you but he’ll definitely think about this situation next time he wants to do something like this.

Spreading the word.

My mom and I were talking about this today after hearing about a woman who was molested on a plane who said nothing until she was picked up at the airport by her parents. My mom looked at me and asked what I would do in that situation and I looked her dead in the eye and I told her “it would take me .02 seconds to realize what was going on and yell angrily, and then I would be straight on to bitch slapping him so hard he wouldn’t be able to see the punch I’d throw with the opposite hand”.

She nodded and accepted my salty language like a seasoned sailor.

I’ve had experience with this before, in Prague a group of five girls and I were followed by three men at night. After a while they started yelling at us, the most common being “how much?” Meaning how much we “cost” as prostitutes. Seeing as they weren’t going to stop, I turned on my heel, faced them (which surprised them), spat at their feet and responded with “You couldn’t afford me.” This prompted the other girls to start yelling back at them as well, starting with our spitfire Czech friend to start slinging curses in Czech as she and the rest of the girls came up beside me. Needless to say the men backed off and pretty much fled. They weren’t expecting a fight. It empowered me and encouraged the rest of the girls to yell back too.

I’ve heard that a lot of people don’t know what to do in this situation because they’ve been taught all their lives to be polite and non-aggressive. Keep your heads down or whatever.

Keep in mind that studies have shown that rapists look for victims who won’t fight back.

Remember that nobody has the right to touch you without your consent or harass you, and you have all the right to make the biggest fuss about it that you can possibly make.

Get angry. Be in command.


I’m lucky that because I’m very tall and not traditionally feminine, I very rarely get harassed like this, but when I do see it happening and the woman looks too scared do anything, I’ll start calling attention to it.  It doesn’t even have to be outright aggressive (especially if it looks like the man might be violent or dangerous), it’s usually just distracting the dude, saying any damn thing and keeping him busy long enough for her to get off at her stop and get home safely. 

I don’t have the ability to follow my fiancé around all day, every day, so I can’t always be there to stomp some asshole’s esophagus into his own rib cage, but this is something I’d like to encourage everyone to do. Most especially women, but nobody should have to go through this.

Get people to notice cuz if you can't bludgeon the living shit out of sexual offenders, you'd need help from other people to bludgeon them.
