At Work – I got told by a white, cis-gender man that I am ‘exaggerating’ with regards to my reactions to getting sexually harassed at work yesterday. He said many women take it as a compliment and I should just ‘ignore it and get over it because it happens all the time everywhere anyway. It’s nothing serious’.
At Work – I got leered at, hissed at, hollaed at, whistled loudly at as I tried to get to where I needed to go. Later on, as I was walking to lunch/dinner, one man whispered ‘Hawn Lily’ in my ear. When I reacted and asked him what he said and why he addressed me, he acted offended and pretended he hadn’t told me anything.
