street harassment

Street harassment is the term given to those activities when someone else does the activities to other without their permission. Generally we hear about the girls being victim of street harassment and the harassment is very rare to boys.

I know the incident where boy have become a victim of street harassment. My friend shared me his story of street harassment which happened when he was just been admitted to undergraduate studies. Same day alike while he was walking to his college destination, a man in his bike came along him and asked if he need a ride. He was in confusion whether he knows that man or not but the man was so confident to know my friend.  He told him not to worry, he was just passing through the road and he saw him and offered him a ride. My friend could not reply him back and sat on his bike thought that he might have forgotten who he is.

After few distance they travelled that man brought his one hand and touched his penis. He  thought that his hand just came with accident so did not give much attention towards it. After few seconds that man again brought his hand towards his penis and touching him again and again. Now he was shocked to encounter that. He could not think what to do as this was happened very first time to him. Suddenly he hold that man hand and said to stop the bike but the man said not to worry as if nothing have happened. But my friend keeps on saying and finally he stopped and walked silently towards his college without saying a single word to that man. He was in complete shock. I remember him that very that he was in the middle of nowhere, he did not even hear teacher calling his attendance. I asked him what happened to him but he gave no response to me.

Almost about 4 days he was in complete shock and I forced him to tell me what happened to him finally he told me every incident happened to him. As I was his bench partner, I told him let go through that way again and identify him so that we can arrest him and punish him but till now he does  not move through that road as he think that this is most painful event happened to him and don’t want to remember that occurrence again.

The reason of his long shock of the incident was because it happened to a boy, a boy who thought to be a tough and strong in society. Now he is much worried not because of that incident but afraid to think what will the society say him when everyone knows about that incident because in our society, if boys moves through such incident then that is the most shamefulness thing happen in boys life and he no longer though to be muscular and harsh.

This one of the strange incident I remember happened due to street harassment.
