I was on the metro today. As I was standing on the escalator I felt a man press himself against my backside… I wish I could tell you I was brave and reported him but I couldn’t think at the moment. I thought what if it’s all in my head, or what if he was pushed, or what if it wasn’t intentional. I didn’t even look back to see his face, I just walked away as soon as I could. But now thinking back, I don’t know why I was coming up with excuses for him and I think I was also a little scared. I don’t want people to think I’m overacting and I didn’t want to escalate the situation. I’m also ashamed of myself that I didn’t report him and I felt like no one would care and I would just be dismissed because it’s difficult to find evidence to prove harrasment. I didn’t know where to go or where to let someone know so I came here.
