Stop unsolicited sexualization of women 2k15

I was waiting outside Dundas station with my friend, smoking. It was in the middle of the week, an hour after rush hour died down so there were no hoards of people entering and exiting the station, just a few stragglers here and there. I was wearing my baggy painting clothes as I had just … Continued

Bullies on the TTC

I was on the 60 Steeles bus on the way to Finch station. I was sitting in the back when two European girls got onto the bus. They started mocking me because of the way I dressed and I look like a typical lesbian. They made kissing noises towards one another and made fun of … Continued

Riding the University-Spadina subway line Northbound, I noticed an older man was stroking himself (he was wearing loose, threadbare sweat shorts with a small leather bag half covering his junk) while making direct eye contact with myself and another subway rider. I promptly moved seats and got off a station early, though I regret not … Continued
