A red pickup truck with a big engine pulled up alongside of me.
I feel uncomfortable wearing headphones to listen to music when in public for exactly this reason.
I was annoyed but shrugged it off. Maybe he wasn’t sure where he was going and was trying to get a closer look at the house numbers.
And he did the same damn thing. He slowed his truck to my pace.
This is not an uncommon occurance. It’s happened to me dozens of times in my life.
Whether I was wearing a tank top or bundled in a winter coat.
Guys- when I’m out in public, I’m not there for your pleasure
I’m here for mine
And I deserve to walk around my own damn neighborhood without being harassed
