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.
