    Dad

    It started early. Too much tickling, but he didn't mean to hurt me. It was just tickling. So when my dad started pinching my butt, smacking my butt as I passed by, or slowly running his thumb from the base of my spine up to my neck, I thought I was just over reacting. But it...

    I have been shopping at the same supermarket

    for a year now. After losing a few pounds one of the employees started to catcall me. Being married I ignored him and continued with my shopping. Then every time I returned to the store a different employee would walk by me and tell me how ugly I was. I have never seen anything...

    On the bus home from work one day,

    two guys sat behind me and started making comments about how they liked my hair, which was nice to hear as I take good care of my hair but then one of them moved to the seat across from me and stated telling me what he would like to do me in bed and he had hold of my arm really...

    I'm a queer girl, and I've recently shared my

    first kiss with the girl of my dreams. Later that week when I went over to her house, she sexually harassed/assaulted me... I'm debating telling anyone because I'm young and not even out of the closet yet. I'm afraid to say anything because I don't want her to get into a lot of...

    My Coach

    I started as a gymnast when I was eight years old. At this point I was just going to a local gym with neighborhood friends. As I got better however, more and more people started telling me to join a club team. So, when I was eleven, I did just that. I did well on the club team...

    Apparently my breasts are on the large side

    for a teenage girl and I'm constantly harassed. Last time I told someone I thought it was wrong for people to always comment on my chest they laughed and told me to stop moaning. They say speak up about harassment but when you do they say you're complaining! It's not fair.

    I Was Just A Kid.

    I think I was ten, or eleven at the time. Summer of my 4th grade year, I went to an art camp. I met a boy three years older than me, and we became friends. I was really naive, and didn't understand anything at the time. I didn't catch any hints, I just thought everyone in the...

    He was a close friend of mind. It's happened a lot since then. Most recently, by a stranger on July 3, 2014. It makes me scared.

    But Why?

    At every job I have ever had, I have been sexually harassed. Why? Why does it happen to me? My first job was working at the Subway in my little town. I worked there for several months and knew the place quite well. The owner's little assistant came in every once and a while to...

    I was a freshman at high school.

    Men, It Is Not Appropriate To Hit On A Woman At Work.

    Especially if our job description requires us to be polite to customers, or remain seated in one place throughout most of the shift. Just because we don't tell you to f#ck off, or walk away, doesn't mean we like it. It just means that we can't. Exploiting our position as an...

    So I finally told the old pervert

    who has been bothering me for almost a year to stop it today. He STILL came by my desk. My friends who know what has been going on were flabbergasted that he had the nerve to still bother me. I told him to leave me ALONE! If it continues, I'm telling my supervisor.

    It was my favorite place to be. Not because of my friends like most kids but because I lucked out with amazing teachers and loved to learn. 8th grade my English teacher ended up being the creepiest man I have ever met in my life. He sexually harassed me for four months until I...

    My older brother's friends from college would

    tell me I had '**** sucking lips' and they would tell me to be proud of the fact that I had a 'nice rack'. I understand they were just being idiots, but I swear, if I had to hear one of them whistle and say, "Nice ***!" again, I would've gauge my eyes out.
