Sometimes I hate the world we live in. A world where women can’t even feel safe walking home in the middle of the day.
I’m walking home from my boyfriend’s house at 12PM on a MONDAY and a man starts following me home. I know he’s following me, he j-walks where I j-walk, he’s walking extremely close behind me, speeds up when I speed up, etc. I notice this and stop in a parking lot so he will pass me, aka stop following me/ won’t know where I live. He stops when I stop, looks at me and says “hi”. I say nothing. He says “what, you can’t say hi?”. I say don’t talk to me. He yells, calls me a filthy fucking cunt, etc. I stay where I am, say nothing. He badgers me, I tell him to fuck off or I will call the cops. People standing by do nothing, say nothing. He eventually starts walking away, I have to wait 20 minutes until he’s out of sight, even then he keeps looking back at me and swearing.
And the worst part is I can’t really remember his face, I was so mad. And he’s just going to do this to another girl, and another.
I hate this.
