Confronting a Pervert on the Bus & “Cleaning Beirut streets from human-trash!”

I was sitting on the large bus seats alone until a young man in his 20’s came and sat next to me!

It was all fine until I felt his hand is moving, so I looked down and noticed he was masturbating. Knowing myself and my bad temper, I decided to stay quiet until he speaks to me (which I’m sure he will). then suddenly he asks me if I have a tissue paper, I said no and then asked him “bcharafak, don’t feel ashamed of doing this?”

He was shocked that I actually faced him and said something about it. He said why should he be ashamed, it’s something normal for a guy to do! Oh oh, he just made a huge mistake, he got into an argument with me!!

I told him since you don’t feel ashamed then why don’t you stand up and yell it out loud, yell it to all the people on the bus, say what you’re doing -and I said this in a loud voice, and noticed the people sitting in front of us and next to us were listening.

He started asking me to lower my voice, begging to stay quiet. hahaha this will teach him to mess with the wrong girl, JARASTO on the bus.

but this was not the end of our discussion, my bad temper and womanly pride did not allow me to shut up, instead I kept on demeaning him and showing him how stupid, immature he looks and that doing this does not make him a man!

I even dared him to do this in front if his own father, mother and sister, he was shocked to hear me even say that, especially that I doubted his “man-hood” by saying if you’re a real man, you’d do that in front of your parents, and not to strangers!

I enjoyed vending my anger on him but sadly I had to get out of the bus! ah well, another day and another adventure!

I guess it’s just another day at “Cleaning Beirut streets from human-trash!”

Harassed at a Fake Job Interview

I was asked to have a job interview by the owner of of a Pharmaceutical business at 5.30pm, I went to the office and found there were no staff, the offices were all empty.

The Manager asked me to sit on the couch, me with no suspicion of anything yet did, then he sat right next to me thighs touching and his arm around me…

I was scared, knew he intented to make sex advances, took my purse and ran away terrified by it!

I saw her harassed in Dawra- but I took this picture & the guy got scared and ran away!


i was participating into the Protest against our Sectarian system on Sunday 26/2/2012 in Dawra Area .

We were waiting to start the Protest and i was taking photos around.
Suddenly i saw this man trying to stop this women . And he touched her and tried to stay infront of her by closing the street to not let her pass.

She tried to cross and pass by moving his body away from her by her hand as you can see . And when he turned, and saw me taking this photo…He turned and left , maybe scared from any kind of Reactions we will take to stop him from doing that again .

And in this way, she left too and continue walking forward and crossed the Road .

Shame on him and this stupid mentality of thinking of Women …
