"Everyone’s just looking for reasons to wake up and get out of bed, some do it for nothing but a kiss, perhaps a cup of coffee, others have a harder time; no train to catch, no hand to hold, no reasons at all."

"The best index to a person’s character is how he treats people who can’t do him any good, and how he treats people who can’t fight back."

Okay, this is actually what you do if you’re being sexually harassed in any kind of public space. Draw attention to it, preferably pull away and let EVERYONE know that someone is touching you. This will not only get him to get off you but he’ll definitely think about this situation next time he wants to do something like this.

Spreading the word.

My mom and I were talking about this today after hearing about a woman who was molested on a plane who said nothing until she was picked up at the airport by her parents. My mom looked at me and asked what I would do in that situation and I looked her dead in the eye and I told her “it would take me .02 seconds to realize what was going on and yell angrily, and then I would be straight on to bitch slapping him so hard he wouldn’t be able to see the punch I’d throw with the opposite hand”.
She nodded and accepted my salty language like a seasoned sailor.
I’ve had experience with this before, in Prague a group of five girls and I were followed by three men at night. After a while they started yelling at us, the most common being “how much?” Meaning how much we “cost” as prostitutes. Seeing as they weren’t going to stop, I turned on my heel, faced them (which surprised them), spat at their feet and responded with “You couldn’t afford me.” This prompted the other girls to start yelling back at them as well, starting with our spitfire Czech friend to start slinging curses in Czech as she and the rest of the girls came up beside me. Needless to say the men backed off and pretty much fled. They weren’t expecting a fight. It empowered me and encouraged the rest of the girls to yell back too.
I’ve heard that a lot of people don’t know what to do in this situation because they’ve been taught all their lives to be polite and non-aggressive. Keep your heads down or whatever.
Keep in mind that studies have shown that rapists look for victims who won’t fight back.
Remember that nobody has the right to touch you without your consent or harass you, and you have all the right to make the biggest fuss about it that you can possibly make.
Get angry. Be in command.

FUCKING RELEVANT

I remember being new to Germany (around 16/17 yrs) and strange men placing their hands on my body - particularly my ass area - whenever I went out at night with my friends, or sometimes even casually strolling around the city during the day. This is SUCH disgusting behavior.
It’s so ridiculous though, that every time it happened, I would be so nice. I would either ignore them (if it was a slap), or if it was a lingering touch, I would gently remove their hand from my butt or thigh. Almost apologetic even, like I couldn’t look them in the eye. I felt like it was MY fault for wearing a skirt too short, or for wearing heels to high, or for being slightly tipsy in a place filled with men and it’s probably noticeable.
Regardless, it was never my fault. 
Now, I’m a complete bitch whenever this happens. Okay not a bitch exactly and I’m working on developing more of that “attitude” thing, but I am definitely not apologetic for their asshole behavior. Ew, no more.
