“A man on a bicycle spit in my face…”

A man on a bicycle spit in my face after looking at my shirt that read “pro-choice”. I had just walked out of a therapy session where I was trying to work through the aftermath of two sexual assaults.

    I’m really sorry to hear that that happened to you. It could be a coincidence that you were wearing that shirt. This morning on my way to work I was at the Queen and Dufferin intersection and a man on a bike looked at me and spit right in my face also. It was for absolutely no reason and he just biked off. I felt so violated and I’ve been upset all day.

    It may have been the same man that spit on you. Especially since both our assaults happened in queen west. If that’s the case I don’t think that he did it because of your pro choice shirt. He must have some sort of mental illness.

    I read an article about a woman who had the same thing happen to her. She filed a police report and months later they called her to say that they found the man and he had over 20 reports of spitting in peoples faces.

    Experiencing it myself now I understand how degraded and hurt you must have felt. I wish I got a better look at him.

    Hi Natalie and Erin, thanks for joining the conversation. The more we speak up each time this happens, the closer we get to eradicating this kind of degrading, disgusting act.
