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

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 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 ?!

عنوان واحد لقصص كثيرة: التحرش الجنسي

هذه ليست قصة تحرش واحدة سأخبركم بها، بل هي مجموعة مما لا أزال أتذكره من القصص التي حدثت معي أو مع أصدقائي في السنوات الست الماضية.

1- باخدك ععاليه إذا بدك كانت عائدة من كلية الإعلام في الفنار، تتسجل لسنتها الأولى في الجامعة. عرضت على السائق “سرفيسان” ليوصلها إلى عين الرمانة فوافق. قالت له “حدّ الدفاع المدني”، فقال “باخدك ععاليه اذا بدك”. ركّز مرآته جيداً ليراها كما يريد.

بدأ بغزله المقزز بعد دقائق من صعودها إلى السيارة، يستفسر ماذا تدرس، وإن كانت كل الفتيات في كليتها جميلات مثلها، وإن كنّ يلبسن ثياباً “سكسي” كالتي تلبسها الآن – كانت تلبس بنطلون جينز مع بلوزة “مستّرة” حسب ما يقال. طلبت منه أن ينزلها، وعادت مع سرفيس آخر إلى المنزل.

2- “يلا اطلعي” كانت تنتظر سرفيساً للذهاب إلى الجامعة كما في كلّ صباح. توقف أحدهم، فقالت له “الإعلام الفنار”، ففتح لها الباب الأمامي مع عبارة “يلا اطلعي”. استغربت، لكن “نمرة” السيارة كانت حمراء.

لا تدري لماذا صعدت إلى السيارة، وكيف لم تفكر حتى ان تقول له إنها تفضل الجلوس في الخلف – تجلس دائماً في الخلف عندما تجد مقعداً شاغراً. مرّوا بالشيفروليه، وفي طريقهم باتجاه الفوتوروسكوب، أخذ السائق طريقاً مختصراً عادة ما يأخذه سائقو التاكسي للهروب من الزحمة. ثم قرر أن يتوقف تحت شجرة بعيدة نسبياً عن الطريق، وقال لها إنها لم تغلق بابها جيداً، ثم مدّ يده من فوق جسمها ليفتح الباب ويغلقه، فشعرت بجسمه المقرف على جسمها.

فتحت الباب وقفزت من السيارة وركضت حتى وصلت إلى الطريق العام.

3- “زمطت” صعدت في سيارة الأجرة في وقت متأخر. كانت وحدها، والساعة تجاوزت منتصف الليل. حاول أن يغتصبها. بقيت تقاومه لحوالى نصف الساعة، علماً أنها قوية البنية. لم يتمكن منها – استطاعت أن تهرب. “زمطت”.

4- السائق وصديقه صعدت في سيارة الأجرة في وقت متاخر. اطمأنت لوجود راكب بجانب السائق، ليتبين لها انهما صديقان. أخذا طريقاً لا تعرفه، وبدآ يخططان لما سيفعلانه، وكأنها لا تسمعهما. طلبت من السائق إنزالها فتجاهلها. فتحت الباب ورمت بنفسها على الطريق…

5- تبكي أم تضحك كانت في الجميزة. قالت للسائق “دورة”، وصعدت إلى جانبه لوجود ركاب ثلاثة معه في الخلف. أنزل الركاب فبقيت وحيدة. وضع يده على فخذها. كانت ترتدي تنورة. صرخت بوجهه ليرفع يده عنها وينزلها. توقف. فتحت الباب وترجلت. نظرت إلى الخلف، فإذا به يحاول إدخال إصبعه في مؤخرتها. احتارت، أتبكي أم تضحك.

6- “عم يلعب فيه!” كانت تنتظر سيارة أجرة تحت المنزل في عين الرمانة. توقفت سيارة جنبها، وسألها السائق سؤالاً. إقتربت لتجيبه، ليتبين لها أنه لا يريد لها سوى أن تراه يلعب بعضوه الذكري.

7- “إيده عخصرك” كانت جالسة في الباص، فجاءت سيدة خمسينية لتجلس بقربها. أحست بالأمان. لكنها أحسّت بعد قليل أن يداً تلمس خصرها. لم تتحرك. مرة ثانية. نظرت إلى الوراء. رجل أربعيني ينظر من النافذة وكأن شيئاً لم يكن. لكنه أعاد الكرة. نظرت إليه نظرة فيها الكثير من التهديد. نزل من الباص بعد دقائق قليلة.

8- “سرود حدّ العامود” بعد سهرة أمضتاها في البارومتر، خرجتا ومشتا نحو السيارة. ثم جمدت إحداهنّ وطلبت من الثانية ان تعبرا الطريق بهدوء. كان يقف بجنب العامود، مخرجاً عضوه وممارساً العادة السرية، ناظراً إليهما بكلّ ما في نفسه من شهوة قذرة.

9- “بخربلك بيتك” نزلت من سيارة الاجرة على مستديرة ساسين. الساعة تجاوزت الحادية عشرة. دخلت في الحيّ المظلم الذي يوصلها إلى بيتها. شعرت أن أحدهم يلحق بها. بدأ يقترب أكثر فأكثر. قالت له “لا تقترب مني”. أصرّ أنه يريد أن يكلمها. هددته بالكاميرا التابعة للبنك مقابل المنزل: “بخربلك بيتك”. لم يذهب. صرخت لأختها أن هناك من يلحق بها. صرخت كثيراً.

فهرب هذه فقط عيّنة صغيرة من القصص التي أتذكرها… أخبركم بالمزيد لاحقاً.

Molested on the public bus… by the DRIVER

I was taking a public bus down to Jbail on a sunny Wednesday in the middle of the day (between 12am and 1pm) to go to the beach. Just for the record – I was wearing a black/grey cotton dress with black 3/4 leggings, a black vest with short sleeves and sandals. After telling the driver where I wanted to get off and gesturing towards where I was planning to go he offered to drive me to the other side of the highway as it seemed that he was going back to Beirut after his stop there.

The last person got off where I was planning to as well but I thought there is no harm in accepting his offer. So I thought.. A minute later, when we had stopped, I climbed back from the front seat to go towards the door and tried to open it. – Sitting in the front seat of a public bus. Something I am most likely never to do again! – In an attempt to help as the door didn’t open, the bus driver fiddled with it.

Whilst exchanged places with me in this very small corridor of the bus to – apparently – get a better grip at the door, he slightly touched my bum. A second later the door was open and I left immediately.

When I turned around however, he had his hand in his open trousers working on his Willy and grinning at me with the most disgusting smile I had ever seen. The last thing missing was his saliva dropping out of his mouth. Absolutely disgusted and shocked to the bones, I slowly walked away from the bus, not knowing what to do with myself.

After I had stepped down into the streets of Jbail, just off the highway, I looked up and the bus was gone. It took me a few hours to recover from this experience as well as to pull myself together and start the journey back to Beirut in another public bus. This time, I made sure to follow two other women getting on a semi-filled bus and to sit further in the back.
