Stalked and harassed… even when driving!

First I used to think I have a car I’m immune against harassment since I don’t walk on the street. But lately I’ve been realizing even safe in my car I can be harassed and stalked.

I really don’t know why guys have turned into such creepy desperate losers to do something like that. It was happened twice so far and frankly it’s making me a little scared of going out at night now.

First time I went to pick up my friend from Kaslik and we were on our way to gemayze. A car behind me a Peugeot with 2 guys in it kept flashing it’s light I thought he wanted to pass so I made way for him he didn’t so I kept going. He kept following us till we reached the highway and he started getting so close almost causing us an accident he kept rolling his window and trying to talk to us.

Anyway we got to gemayze he was still following us. We parked he parked next to us. And when he got out the usual crap all typical Lebanese guys say fina net3arraf w 3ajabtine w mo3jab and other crap. Anyway we disposed of them and I made sure to tell him in English (when I’m angry I started talking in English) how creepy and desperate I thought they are which they didnt understand a word of all they could say was ‘ma bte7ke 3arabe?’ -.-

anyway the second time also in Kaslik we were returning home after midnight we decided to stop by a hot dog stand while we were eating in the car a BMW parks next to us with a guy in it I immediately sensed he’s going to try to talk to us so I started the car and we left to my surprise he followed us -.-

he kept following us till I decided to park thinking he’ll keep going which turned out to be a bad idea he parked next to us and tried to talk to us i made a sign with my hand for him to leave that were not interested to talk with him he wouldn’t leave bel ouwwe baddo efta7 el Chebbek la ye7ke

eventually I just drove back and went into a road that leads to sakanet jeich he didn’t follow he just disappeared. I don’t know if this counts as harassment stalking flirting or whatever but it sure is very annoying and scary for the girl who doesn’t know what the guys intentions are.

“We can’t be living in a country where it is acceptable for men to do whatever they want to women. We should value ourselves more.”

I was walking to university with my friend. Suddenly i see a very big and tall man leaning over me. He whispered in my ear how he wanted to fondle my breasts and then pinched my butt. I froze because i was so shocked.

My friend pulled my hand and we ran together to the university gate. There were many people on the street. Also, three girls were staring at us in shock. This is one of the few incidents i have encountered.

When i lived in makdisi street,the same men use to shout out the same vulgar remarks everyday. Surprisingly, the darak were the ones that use to harass me the most.

I went to university in beirut and in kaslik. In both universities many professors have the habit of obscenely checking me and other girls out. Last week i was talking to my professor. He is fifty and is married with two kids. While i was talking to him he was staring at my breasts and then cut me off and walked away. I didn’t say anything because i did not want to upset him. Upsetting him might make him fail me. . .

I reached a point were i got used to this behaviour since it is so common and no one will hold them accountable. This is very bad. Something should be done to limit harassment. We can’t be living in a country where it is acceptable for men to do whatever they want to women. We should value ourselves more.
