My Late Night Harassment Experience

Getting "catcalled" is no joke.

My Late Night Harassment Experience
Magda Sikora

I'll just keep it simple and tell you that this is what happened to me Thursday night as I was walking home from work. No embellishments, no exaggerations. This is what I heard, and now you're hearing it too.

I clocked out of work around 9:30 pm. It was already dark out. I had on ratty sneakers, black leggings, a green t-shirt, my Dollar Tree apron, and my Supernatural backpack. A little ways into my 45 min/1 hour walk home, I knew that somebody was behind me. I didn't look to see who it was, I just kept heading the direction I was going. I quickly realized that it was not 1 somebody, but 3 somebodies. And they were drunk. I could tell because they started talking.

Guy 1 "Hey, you. Hey miss. Let me get your number."

Guy 2 "You there. With the backpack. Give us your number."

Guy 3 "Hey! Backpack! Turn around sweet cheeks!"

This kind of drunken catcalling went on for a while, and I wasn't too worried. They were a bit behind me, I'm a big girl, and I had been cat called before. But then it took a turn, and I started to get nervous.

Guy 1 "Hey backpack. You better turn around before I make you."

Guy 2 "Yo, backpack, you want to turn around and suck me off?"

Guy 1 "You want to turn around and suck ME off?"

Guy 3 "Or she could suck all of us off together."

Guy 2 "Dude, that's totally gay."

Drunken laughter ensues. I adjust my backpack, like I always do, completely not even realizing.

Guy 2 "WOO! Do that again backpack!"

Guy 1 "Yeah! Let's get a look at that ass!"

Guy 2 "Hey! Can you fuck? I hear fat bitches like you are freaks in bed."

Guy 3 "Hey backpack, are you tight?"

Guy 1 "What are you talking about? Fat bitches are always tight. They're always virgins."

Guy 3 "You a tight little virgin backpack?"

Guy 2 "You better turn around and show us how tight you are before I see what that long ass ponytail feels like wrapped around my fist."

Guy 1 "Turn the fuck around bitch."

Guy 3 "I'll rip that apron right off you."

Guy 2 "We'll fuck you right here, right now. Ponytails are great for holding on to."

At this point, I was almost sprinting to get away from them. They either lost interest, turned a corner, or one of them tripped over themselves because I was sure I had lost them. Not shortly after, I noticed two of my friends, Josh and Jacky on the other side of the street. I jogged over to them, 5% to say hi, 95% to make sure I still wasn't being followed by those creeps. I explained, in short, the situation, and Josh offered me a ride home because his house was right up the street. I was honestly so thankful because I still would have been walking for another half hour or so.

Moral of the story? There isn't one. I don't know what would have happened if I had stopped, or said something to them, or even turned around. Just be safe out there ladies.

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
