I hate writing negative posts but every now & again it is neccessary.
About 12:30am on Saturday morning/ Friday night, a guy touched my leg on public transport. When I say touch I mean rubbed my leg lightly. This is the 3rd time it has happened to me this month. It has also previously happened.
Why? Why do these men do this?
I know it is a small amount of guys but, what goes on in their tiny brains which makes them think it is an okay thing to do?
When I noticed this guy rubbing my leg lightly with his finger I told him not to touch me and his response was ‘Why, you don’t like it?’!!!! I was outraged and disgusted by this. Am I supposed to enjoy a strange man touching my leg?
If this has happened to me 3 times in September, how many other girls have men done this to? And it has been 3 different guys. I am disgusted by this and really think Transport for London need to do something about this form of sexual abuse. And yes, I think it is sexual abuse and an invasion of privacy and personal space.
I have always shouted at the men who have done this to me & I will shout about it and shame them so that other people will see thier faces & stay clear of them. He is lucky I didn’t hit him.
All I can say is I hope this doesn’t happen often & please be safe. This has happened to me at different times in the day so don’t think it just happens at night. I have also spoken to bus drivers about it when the offender isn’t smart enough to get off, but all they do is shrug.
If someone sits next to you and puts their hand close to your leg, be alert & if you are certain they touched you, don’t let them get away with it.
I hope TFL acknowledges my complaint about lack of security and neglect from bus drivers.
