Another repressed HOLLA

Ever since I discovered this blog I have been remembering times I was harassed on the street. It’s scary to me that those memories are lying just beneath the surface, but I am SO glad to have a place to release them now.

It was Marathon Monday and I was trying to get from Copley Square to the Pru to meet some friends. Right outside of Lord & Taylor, the crowds got ridiculous and the mob I was walking with got stuck. We could not move an inch and we all ended up completely sandwiched against each other.

At first I was having trouble understanding why the guy behind me found it necessary to keep moving even though it was obvious we weren’t going anywhere. That was before I felt something hard rubbing against me.

As if it wasn’t scary enough to be completely trapped, now I had to be trapped in front of some sicko trying to get off on the situation. I turned around and looked him in the eye and said, “STOP.” He winked and smiled at me but did not quit.

I don’t remember how long it took before we actually got moving again, but definitely not as long as it's going to take for me to not be angry about this anymore.
