I am in a situation similar to the question on sexual harassment. I have been touched in the streets by men and in the Subway several times when I was younger. 2 weeks ago when I was on a trip abroad, 2 men tried to touch me the same day in a tramway and in a market. It all came back, this feeling of fear, humiliation, anger, helplessness.
I know that the thoughts are “I am helpless”, “I am humiliated”, I could choose other thoughts, but It wouln’t change the fact that as woman we are regularly merciless when someone decides to touch you against your will.
What could I think ? Abuse can happen, it’s part of life ? For me there is no doubt of the ill intention of some men.
