He sexually harassed a pregnant woman, but she attacked and took him to the police!

Was walking towards Dar in Clemenceau to meet a friend. Just next to the Wardieh Gas Station a guy walking towards me looked me into the eyes and told me “i want to you to breast-feed me, and i want to enjoy your lovely pussy”.

By the way I’m a 7month pregnant woman. I thought that this pregnancy would be a time off harassment but apparently its a forum for more creativity.

Naturally I decided to confront him, and told him, “What did you say?” with a raised voice since i wanted to embarrass him. Suddenly he started to run. I don’t know if its instinct or what I started to run after him and told him “Come back you!!”.

The other people on the street thought that he robbed me so they started running after him, especially a young 30yr old man, who was able to catch him. Then other guys gathered and told me what happened i told them what he said suddenly they started hitting him, slapping him on the face and pushing him around.

There was a blond muscular guy who really got so pissed off, and flipped on him telling him “you are an animal and a harasser!!”…. “Girls on the street are not to be talked to this way!!”.

Another guy with a black beard was shouting at him, “you are just like that asshole who harassed my sister and i wish everyone of your kind is swept away and locked”… it turned out to be quite a scene of people deflating previous experience.

What’s funny is that the blond guy didn’t settle for just this he dragged the harasser to the police officer on the cross section just next to Banque Du Liban! The police officer started to scold him and asked me “what do you want to do with him?”

What was funny was that all the time the harasser was denying he told me anything and was saying I’m crazy, so I told the officer I want him to confess in front of everyone that what he did is wrong & that unfortunately even if i took his number or dragged him to the police station there is nothing that can be done, so just humiliating him there was what can be done, or at least that is what I thought on the spot.

Harasser kept denying and said ” i wasn’t talking to her”, so one guy said “shu you were talking to the car to breast-feed you, or to me?” later on i knew that this guy apparently saw harasser talking to me and me suddenly turning and running after him.

The harasser kept denying, so I asked “why did you run, if you know that you didn’t do anything wrong? And if I am crazy?” then the police got really angry and started to tell me you can do with him whatever you want, he is an animal etc,, but I decided to not take anymore action since what was done was enough.

It was so nice afterwards, everyone was offering me water, and asking me that I should relax for the baby, shop owners were offering me sandwiches and chairs , it felt like this is really how a pregnant woman should be treated rather than being harassed by creeps!!!!!

Although I’m sure that harasser would surely think twice before talking to a woman again on the streets, and the “2tleh” that he got by total strangers would not be easily erased from his memory.

I stood up for myself after sexually violated by a pervert in a minivan and no one supported me!

I am 24 and have been harassed many times (one way or another) but this incident is really shocking. Here’s why:

As usual I finished my 2 hrs run at lebanese university (it’s close to my house and I feel comfortable running there, better than running on the street). When I existed the university and walked a small distance I noticed a guy (aged 17-18) following me. I took a van (small one #4) he followed me and sat next to me.

He tried to start a conversation with me but I clearly stated that am older than him and I dont want to talk to him! he then started to touch my thighs with his fingers:

so I told him:”shu 3am ta3mol!”

He said: “ma shi!”

I can’t remember what happened after but when he wanted to leave the van I stood so he could go down .. his put his hands on my back!!

so I was fed up w I shouted b al van” enta 23od! shu 3melet hal2?! ma fye tenzal! w b kel baradet a3sab bred: ma shi! ana kamalet w edam al kel: ween hatet edak?!

2ali: majnoni enti!

told him: enta al bala a5la2! w hal haki kelo edam al nas w edam al driver!

nezel howi w ma hada 2alo kelmi!!!!! I felt so defeated!! cuz I did what I had to do! although there were 2 men and a women and the van driver!! none of them said a single word!!!!! what a society we live in!! I feel so sorry to even be part of such a community

Yelled at an Asshole Harasser on Gemmayze: “girls like me are strong and not afraid to make a scene!”

Today like everyday, I was walking around waiting for the bus to go home. As I was waiting I heard a car honking, my first thought was maybe this was a taxi and he was honking to ask me where I’m going, but what I saw was a car with a while number plate, not red like taxis have!

A little voice in my head was asking me to unleash my fury while another said maybe he was asking for directions. I approached the car with confidence but also I was careful.

I asked the 40 year old man how I can help me, he told me to come in. Ahaaa, that was all I wanted to hear, that little nod he did that says “get in the car”, the way his hands removed an object placed by the driver’s seat were exactly the signs I was looking for, a reason to vent without feeling guilty!

I started yelling at him in Jemmayzé’s busy street, everybody heard and saw what I was doing. The man instantly blushed and apologized but I kept yelling at him and saying “girls aren’t toys for you to play with, they aren’t here to please, girls like me are strong and not afraid to make a scene!”

Damn it, I wish I was able to take a picture of him before he drove away, ashamed of himself…

To be honest, I’m starting not to mind being harassed by random guys for two reasons, the first is that I have a busy life, so I could use something to vent some of that build up pressure, and second because I know I can -and I will- stand up for myself, while other girls might not, so I stand up and show those guys that girls are raising their voices and refuse to be silent any longer!

Harassed & Flashed in Sassine in Broad Daylight

This is the second time i post here, this is a sign that something is definitely wrong! no girl is safe.

Anyway there was this one time, where me and my friend(a girl) were walking back to my place from sassine square, we got to the alley after “Ogero” , so i felt that someone was following us, so i looked back just to make sure (it has become a reflex since my last accident where i almost got raped)…

There was this guy who looked like a hobo, and he had a really weird expression on his face, and that’s when i realized that he was actually masturbating behind us ! i just couldn’t believe my eyes!

i told my friend to run when i tell her to, So i turned back and started yelling at him and i went after him,and he ran away, so i turned back to my friend and screamed and told her to run !

and that’s how i escaped my second harassment ! jeez, is there no morals anymore in this country ? i just can’t trust anyone anymore, not even my own boyfriend sometimes !

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!”

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 …

I told the driver: “You’ve got a sex-addict passenger who assaults women!” and he threw the guy off the bus!!

I finished work at 5:30 PM in Ashrafieh and went out looking for a cab to go back home. I spotted a bus (bus number 2) and boarded it. I thought it’s a good idea, it’ll be a direct way and i’d spare more money at the same time.

The bus was full. I sat on a small seat in the front row, next to a guy who was apparently sleeping. As the bus began moving, the guy started to wake up and more passengers came in and were standing in the bus.

I felt like the guy’s leg hit mine; I didn’t give this an importance, as it’s not the first time people’s legs hit me in buses or cabs.

But.. later that feeling became more consistent, and as i was trying to get away from the guy i noticed he was getting closer to me, and i felt something like a hard ball on my leg!!!

Then i turned my head lightly… And I saw that he was holding his d*ck and rubbing it against my leg !!! I quickly jumped off my seat and yelled at him, then reported him to the driver: “You’ve got a sex-addict passenger who assaults women!” the driver got mad, punched the guy on his face and head, and literally threw him out of the bus.

The other passengers were stunned. I kept sitting next to the driver until some seats were empty, then a lady asked me to sit next to her.

Isn’t transportation safe anymore ?!
