Cases of eve-teasing and molestation are something that are definitely not new to us. As Indians, we bet you are used to read at least one such horrifying story that will leave you questioning the safety of women in our country. And here we are with yet another similar story. In a Facebook post, one Rashmi Shetty from Mangaluru shared a harrowing experience when someone tried to harass her in the middle of the street.
According to a report in Indian Express, the 22-year-old said that a pervert was following her from quite some days, and even though she had kept quiet in the past, she decided to retaliate this time. And she took to Facebook to shame him by posting the details of his scooter.
Here’s what she wrote –
‘I was followed by the guy who this scooter belongs to today in broad daylight. In a busy street in Mangalore. 3pm in the noon in the center of the city, from Aloysius degree college to Balmatta, to a guy dares to follow a woman who’s walking while there is a swarm of cops thirty steps behind.
You think you can halt a million times ahead of me and honk at me while I cross you as you take a good fucking look at my butt? And that would embarrass me enough to cry at my fate of being a woman in this country, this generation, this world? You think I’d freak out and run so fast that I fucking run into your arms? You think you stopping and making phone calls to your gang would would threaten me into never getting out alone? So confident that if I asked for help if never be able to prove your fault? And that people wouldn’t take my side or take me seriously?
Well, guess what? I take my side. These streets are as much mine as they are of undeserving assholes like you. You or a hundred like you will not scare me into staying home and not being free. This is a message from all the strong girls to you and your likes: if you try curtailing our freedom, we will fight back. And we will knock you down. I was only waiting for you to make a move so I can smack your face with my heels- the same ones you were trying so hard to catch up with. And you think you can do anything under the veil of anonymity? Here, I’m not anonymous anymore. And I won’t let you be either. And let me repeat, I’M NOT SCARED OF YOU.
I hope this reaches you somehow.
You thought I’d be scared, didn’t you? You thought I’d be ashamed, didn’t you?
You’re the one who should be both.
And yeah, F**K YOU.’

Bravo girl! We hope this reaches the pervert and now he would think a hundred times before leering at any girl.
