So yesterday I was walking downtown like I do every freaking day…

So yesterday I was walking downtown like I do every freaking day and there's this group of guys on the side of the street. I was about to walk into them, so I moved and this guy reaches out and puts his hand around my waist. I shook him off and kept walking. And I just kept walking. I was so increadibly freaked out. I was shaking and I couldn't take deep breaths. It was SO scary. I walked around downtown by myself for a while because I didn't want to go home while I was this upset. I'm still kind of upset. I hate when stupid shit like this happens and freaks me out.

Then, a friend and I decided to go to the movies, which calmed me down a lot. We went to see Resident Evil: Extinction, which was bad ass, but there was a rape trigegr at the very beginning that I thought I would post. There's a part whent the main character is in this building and she's been ambushed by this group of people. Then, a man advances on her like he's going to try to rape her, but then she kills him.

Oh man, I was so excited that it came out yesterday, but I haven't seen it yet. Thanks for the warning though, now I know what to expect.

I can't believe some people think that's okay to do that to strangers. I hope you're okay.

It was awesome. Not that it was quality cinema, but it's zombies. It doesn't need to be quality.

And I don't understand.
I don't know why this shit happens to me. I mean, I was with a much more attractive friend and he didn't try to touch her.

Wow... I'd have been freaked out, too. A complete stranger reaching out and touching me like that? ::shudders:: I don't know which of my fight or flight responses would have taken hold fastest.

And thanks for the trigger warning!

My fight responses come on after the flight. So I usually just end up veyr angry, wishing I had done something, but knowing that at the time, I didn't know what COULD happen.

**hugs** One time I had a guy try to get my attention and when I ignored him, he grabbed me by the wrist and turned me around.

UGH! It's scary ♥ Take care

Why do people do that kind of stuff?
It's completly beyond me.

My guess? Because they just don't care about people's personal space. The guy that grabbed me? Known *R*.

Yeah. It's just one of those things that *I* am so aware of and I feel like other people are too, but they're not.

God, I HATE that some people think it's actually okay to that. Seriously, what kind of ancient "logic" was running through his non-existent mind?! I would have freaked out, too. *Offers safe hugs*

Thank you for the safe hugs.
I'm glad that I'm not the only person who thinks like this. I mean, if every logical person I know thinks he was nuts, what was his problem?
