    Tell me your stories of sexual harassment in public, don't be embarrassed as it's not your fault. This can be anywhere - on the bus, on the train, out in the street, etc. It's important to talk about these things.

    I don't know if this counts, but it was still very awkward:

    I was sat in the Bus Station, eating my Steak Bake, and some vile 40-50 year old man, clad in tracksuit, with missing teeth, reeking of sweat and booze came up to me and asked "Hey bruv does this bus go to Huddersfield, like?". Now, I instantly became suspicious because this particular bus only goes to Huddersfield and the sign that was right next to me said "To Huddersfield".

    I said "Yes, clearly" and he sat next to me - even though there were many other seats around - and started talking on the phone. I thought this was the end of it, but he was talking loudly on the phone and I heard THIS:

    "Oh yeah these two guys, beautiful body, starting sucking eachother off in my shower room and I started to **** off to them and they didn't seem to care". "They had a nice ****".

    Clearly, he was speaking loudly on purpose and before I could make my escape, he turned off his phone and turned to me and said "Sorry, I wasn't speaking too loudly was I?" and then started to monologue about how he was a football coach and how beautiful these 18 and 21 year old boys were, in a lot of detail. I put my Steak Bake away and stared at this man with disgust, but because I didn't want to cause a scene I just smiled and repeated "Really? Wow."

    Thankfully, my bus arrived at the station and I said "I must be going now". He tried to shake my hand but I wasn't touching his semen embroidered hand so I snatched it away and got on my bus.

    Needless to say, if anything like this happens again I won't stick to my social conditioning and I'll deal with it my way.

    One time when I was around 11 (Yes, really!) I went to a youth club like 15 minutes away. My town is small and pretty safe, so my mum trusted me to bike home. Anyyyyway, I remember this older lad, about 16 I think, ginger hair, chavvy, was walking the same way as me (it was quite dark and unfortunately in a secluded area). I'm being polite and making conversation and he suddenly puts his arm around me and is like "You're so gorgeous". I'm quite shy so my response was "Oh nooo, there's other girls who are prettier than me, really..." I tried to pull away from his arm but he still clung on, walking a little bit. I just thought if I made it near my house I could deal with this. But then he said "Would you ever have sex without a condom?" And that's when I freaked. I quickly squeaked that I needed to get home and hopped on the bike I was holding and pedalled like fire. I remember being so distraught and sobbing that I didn't go to school the next day. Thankfully I never saw that guy ever again at the youth club.

    Yeh, guys have grabbed my ass on the train and in the street The only time my reflexes were fast enough to punch a guy, he was too drunk to care. I'm contemplating learning a martial art so I can floor the next **** who tries that! :reaper:

    I've always wondered, what are the laws on this kind of thing? Like, punching them? Are there certain situations that allow it?

    I've been followed in the street twice and not left alone by some guy on a train who wouldn't just **** off. Been felt up more times than I can count in clubs and even had someone put their hand up my skirt. And that's not even counting the years of having things yelled at me in the streets (Which started way too young), but I am not sure if they count as harassment since it's a one time thing each time rather than them continuing after being told to stop.

    It's safe to say, I am no longer remotely polite to people who do this anymore. I don't give a rats ass if I hurt someone's feelings, you piss me off you'll be damn well told about it.

    I don't practice it but I heard just 6 months of training in Krav Maga can produce some really good results.
