    This is the second grossest experience I've had with sexual harassment.I was going home by train from my friends birthday party. A man got on the train a few stops after me and made a beeline to the seat across from me.#1 It was 5:30 in the morning - the train had about 7 people...

    There are men who undermine their sex.

    Creepiness is easily recognised but difficult to describe. It's when, for me, someone makes my skin crawl. There are vagabonds who will often surprise me but it's the creepy people, some from Eastern European climes who really worry me. Being approached on the street, and...

    Oh Sweet Jesus

    If only I could tell you about all the creepy men that have approached me... followed me... The worst guy wasn't on the street, though. College. My first semester. He had long hair, B.O. like no tomorrow, and no teeth. He followed me. Talked to me. Scared me. Pretty much all my...

    Only In Ny

    I am only approached by... creepy men on the street. I guess they are creepy because they various ways they.. get my attention.  90% of the time i do not think things are directed at me. I am probably correct in that assumption. It would be quite arrogant of me to think...

    I Was Propositioned By A Homeless Homosexual Man Twice My Age

    Back in my mid twenties, I was walking down by the river one day when I was approached by a middle aged man that could be described as "creepy". He looked slightly homeless: like he was only on his third or fourth day of homelessness- not quite thoroughly disheveled and hungry...

    Ikred Me Out

    I seem to attract the mentally unstable and creeps at the worst times. This experience isn't even the worst, but it left me thinking, "holy **** I'm 5' 2", and although a pretty strong girl, how am I supposed to protect myself when something dangerous happens?" So here's my story...

    The Bus.

    It's ALWAYS the bus or bus stop. Its not a sexual thing, I'm not out there with a sign that says "do me." Just creepy old SOB's think they have to come talk to me for whatever reason. Its like, dude, I am not giving you money. Go beg by the overpass with the other bums alright?

    His and Hers

    So.....This happened to me when I was 17 and working the late night at the mall.  It is perhaps the best example of how 'different' and 'interesting' people seem to find me a friendly face.   It was a quiet night, must have been getting near closing.  A man walks...

    There's a creepy man down my street,

    or at least wanders continuously around my area. He always has two cups of coffee with him, sitting down at a park bench. At first glance, I thought, no I shouldn't be judgmental, he's obviously got some sort of disability as his eyes are always rolling. But then it got to the...

    Jeez, There Are Some Creeps Out There.

    So I was just sitting in Starbucks, enjoying a cappuccino by myself, when this leering geek comes out of nowhere and says "I've got something you could stir your coffee with". Absolutely destroyed my day for no reason whatsoever. Jeez, there are some creeps out there.

    Once Is Enough

    I was fairly big as a freshman. I had been working out for over 1 year, and had started putting on muscle mass.  My hair was already thinning, so I looked much older than my years.  One day, I was walking along the street I lived on heading to my friends house, and as I walked...
