12 Moms Share Gross Stories Of Getting Catcalled While With Their Kids

A couple of months ago I posted a photo art representation of the different types of women who have and are catcalled by predatory black males.  These are athletic, religious clad, pregnant, women with children, professional women to name a few.  It was the traditional argument that men were to protect women, but America has regressed in which the average American woman needs protection FROM certain males, i.e. the predatory vagrants.

There was a recent news article published in the Huffington Post regarding street harassment in which mothers share their stories of being street harassed while out in public with their children:

12 Moms Share Gross Stories Of Getting Catcalled While With Their Kids

“Did you know your mother’s hot?”

I was totally unaware being catcalled while with your children is so incredibly common.

I was once catcalled while wearing my son in a baby carrier. I guess the presumed presence of my body underneath the baby strapped to my torso was apparently good enough for the guy who shouted at me as I was on the way to daycare one day.

Another time, my harasser used my son as the middle man, directing his “You’ve got a beautiful Mommy, you know that?” to the stroller I pushed in front of me. “NO!” I thought but didn’t say because I tend to avoid the uncertainty of conflict in these situations. “You don’t get to use my son to catcall me!”

We’re entering summer, which for many women and non-binary people is when street harassment escalates. It’s always unpleasant, but it may be even more unpleasant and jarring when it happens in the company of your children.

I didn’t know this was a common experience until I started asking. Just as every woman I know has a story of some guy harassing her, so do many mothers had a story of being harassed while out with their children. Some of them are almost amusing in their sheer nerve, some are shudder-inducing, and they unanimously make you want to say, “Ugh.”

Below, 12 women speak out on what the experience is like.

1. “He suggested to the kids that mommy should give him her number.”

I had a guy follow my children and I into the parking lot of a grocery store telling me how beautiful I was and asking for my number. He suggested to the kids that mommy should give him her number. I considered backing up over him with my car. ― Jamie Lechner

2. “What a cutie! And the baby’s not too bad either!”

I was carrying my 9-month-old through the parking lot of a department store to my car and a man was staring at us for an uncomfortably long amount of time, enough to make me pick up my pace and avoid eye contact. Then he yelled, “What a cutie! And the baby’s not too bad either!” He thought he was so funny. Ugh. ― Brie Riley

3. “I want my daughters to know that they can speak up for themselves and that it is not OK with me for strangers to comment on my body.”

Summers are always the worst for catcalling but it gets even worse when my kids are in tow. Men feel they can comment on my tattoos whenever they feel like it and when it does happen, I ignore them or tell them to stop speaking to me. It’s important to do this in front of my daughters because I do not want them growing up feeling like they can be objectified.

I want my daughters to know that they can speak up for themselves and that it is not OK with me for strangers to comment on my body. Hopefully it rubs off on them. ― Jennifer Clark

4. “I have been catcalled at 7 months pregnant.”

If it counts, I have been catcalled at 7 months pregnant (and VERY visibly so, I was wearing a dress which proudly showed the bump!). I was most confused ― did the man saying “Hey sexy mama” and making crude gestures think I was going to haul my large pregnant self into his white van and have sex with him?! ― Ayesha Jeary

5. “I can be his daddy.”

A few years ago, I was walking with my 2-year-old son when a man walked up to us and leered, “I can be his daddy.” We ducked into a restaurant. Thankfully, he was too little to notice. I just ignored the man. Nowadays, we have an open dialogue about how we treat girls and women. ― Sara Heistand

6. “He was so confused as to why mommy went from cheerful to fearful in seconds.”

I was leaving a large retail store at the anchor end of a mall with my son. We were laughing and I was swinging my bags in one hand and holding his with the other while he skipped, as we crossed the lane and into the parking lot. It was dusk and I hear a man whistle and shout. I was so used to it that I automatically stiffened up and picked up my pace, without acknowledging it. I was practically dragging my son by the time the man caught up to us and started asking to “be friends” and saying how “handsome” my son is.

I moved away briskly and he picked up his own pace and asked if I “wanted company this weekend.” I was almost running now so he stopped and then proceeded to shout “Ugly, b*tch, high on yourself” at my back, followed by more name-calling and slurs. I covered my son’s ears and jumped in the car. He was so confused as to why mommy went from cheerful to fearful in seconds and the vibe of our fun, late afternoon had totally changed.

I waited for 10 minutes before getting back out of my SUV to get my son situated in his car seat; he was only 3 1/2 at the time. (There are more instances but that one stuck out in my memory most because it was the most frightened I ever was with my son present.) ― Kasandra Powell

So You Want To Raise A Feminist?
Start here, with the latest stories and news in parenting.

7. “And that, my fellow feminists, is how you sexualize a fetus.”

When I was pregnant with my first child, a random stranger told me that if the baby was a boy he’s be a lucky little sod sucking on those tits. And that, my fellow feminists, is how you sexualize a fetus. ― Nesta May

8. “I wear my daughter all around our hood and stay getting hit on.”

I wear my daughter all around our hood and get hit on. My husband thinks dudes don’t realize I have a baby in there and one guy actually told me that. But I don’t buy it. What the hell else would be in this OBVIOUS baby carrier? A bowling ball?

And pregnancy catcalls were also a thing but thinly veiled as “compliments” like “Oh you look good girl” and “Wish I was the daddy.” I walked to work until the end and got not shortage of street harassment. ― Helena Andrews-Dyer

9. “You just had to have it, didn’t you?”

I was pushing my twins in a stroller when they were about 18 months old when an older man leered at us and said “You just had to have it, didn’t you?” I had no idea what he was talking about and said “What?” He replied, “Oh the thing that gets you two babies born so close together,” and then winked at me.

They are boy/girl twins and don’t look much alike so he probably thought I had gotten pregnant again very soon after giving birth to the first. Either way, I was really grossed out and mumbled something about them being twins and got the hell out of there.  ― Kelly Wilson Bossley

10. “It just feels particularly unkind.”

I’ve gotten pregnant catcalled and every time I’m just like WHAT??! I give them a look or say something to the effect of “Are you fucking serious?” I mean, I guess it’s no more or less offensive than regular catcalling ― pregnant bodies are beautiful and it can look sexy I guess. It just feels particularly unkind. ― Melissa Petro

11. “Did you know your mother’s hot?”

The worst was once when we were waiting for the subway and some dude leered at me and then said to my kid, “Did you know your mother’s hot?”

I just ignored him because I’m always scared about escalating stuff. Later when my son asked me about it I just said, “We live in a really messed up culture that thinks women’s bodies are public property.” ― Anne Thériault

12. “I feel so uneasy when I’m catcalled while with my kids.”

I was once catcalled on my way to the pool with my two young daughters. The man was driving while I was walking. I ignored him and turned left onto a one-way street. He drove in reverse down the one-way street still catcalling to me and trying to get me to give him my number. My daughters were 2 and 4 at the time. This was in NYC. I was terrified!

Even for a NYC street, there was no one else around. I thought he was going to kidnap us. My daughters didn’t ask me anything and I didn’t tell them anything either. They don’t remember thankfully.

However, I feel so uneasy when I’m catcalled while with my kids. Almost like the only reason they’re catcalling me is because I have children. Almost like I’m an easy target or prey. Maybe I’m overthinking it but it feels like it’s my kids some of these men are after. ― Doris Villegasfor clarity.

Siri Warns of Black “Christian” Male Street Harasser

Black Males Idiotic Attempts to Justify Sexual Harassment, Street Harassment and Other Crimes

BLM Hypocrisy: Most Black “Christians” Violate Civil Rights of Sunni Muslim Black Americans-Protests Against Immigration Ban a Farce: PART IV

The majority of today’s black “Christians” street harass, lie, prey upon, sexually harass, accost, discriminate and assault Sunni Muslim Americans.  The hypocrisy is so prevalent a mute can sense it. This is a fact:

1) One morning I was paying for fuel at the Exxon gas station located at 7930 Washington Blvd, Jessup, Maryland 20794 (Howard County). When I approached the counter, I said good morning to the cashier who was a very tall black “Christian” woman who looked well over 60.  She didn’t respond back and I proceeded to tell her the amount of gas I needed and which pump number where I was parked.  As I handed her the money, she gave me a dirty look. I still said “thank you,” to which she did not respond.  After I obtained my receipt and proceeded to return to my car, I heard the other employee ask her about her behavior and from what I could hear she stated something to the effect of “I don’t like them” or “I don’t like Muslims.”  Still within earshot, I heard the employee/supervisor say, “I am Muslim too.”  About two weeks later and from then on, the black “Christian” woman was no longer working at the gas station.

2)  A black “Christian” male purportedly converted to Sunni Islam and claimed at some point that he wanted to get married at a masjid (Islamic house of worship) in Maryland. The masjid members introduced him to a Pakistani Muslim young woman.  Pakistanis are known for being racist and xenophobic, especially against Black Americans.  The Muslim young lady’s family was against her courting and marrying the black male convert.  It is unclear whether he was a sincere convert.  The Muslim woman was a virgin and went against her parents wishes and married the black male who claimed to be Muslim.  It was apparent that they had a solely religious ceremony and not a civil one with a state marriage license because three days later the black male “convert’ did a Shia type of divorce in which a Muslim man can declare three times he is divorced from the wife and she has no recourse. He later disclosed to some Muslim brothers that he just wanted to see what it was like “to be with a virgin.”  In this instance, the parents were right in being against the farce of a marriage and disowned their Pakistani Muslim daughter.  For years safeguards have been in place in which leaders in Sunni Muslim communities require engaged Muslims to have a state issued marriage certificate as well as a civil ceremony to prevent games such as the one perpetrated by this black male “Christian” from happening.  This demonstrates the depravity of ghetto black male “Christians” and their disdain of Sunni Muslims.

3)  This past year the Washington Post reported an incident in which a Muslim young woman was harassed by a black male “Christian” security guard because she refused to remove her head covering in the PUBLIC library.  She was not bothering anyone and was quiet when the black male security guard demanded that she remove it.  Granted, she did not have the covering tied in the traditional manner and it is disputed whether it was a scarf at all or a hood.  However, she was a Muslim and was using whatever type of cloth she adorned on her head as a religious covering.  She explained this to him but the black “Christian” male refused to leave her alone to the point that other patrons of the library of various backgrounds and who were non-Muslim told the security guard to leave her alone and that the Muslim young lady was not bothering anyone.  He claimed he seen Muslim women before and they do not where their heads covered in the specific manner that she had.  This is another social ill that plagues the black “Christians” communities in which they do not follow their own beliefs and somehow are experts on who Muslims are.  They do not even accept, acknowledge or respect Sunni Muslim Black Americans so how in the world can they have the level of understanding of the diversity of Muslims whether it is disputation in Islamic schools of thought,  level of belief or understanding of doctrine or text and individual responsibility of such, clothing, culture or race.  This is the ignorant, singular mentality that ghetto black “Christians” project on others throughout the United States.  She was not breaking any laws either but that does not matter with today’s black “Christian” males, apparently they see women of color as “easy pickings” and “easy targets” for all sorts of harassment because they have the inability to be a true man so bullying Muslims is where most of today’s black “Christian” males find their jollies of false manhood.  He was later disciplined and assigned to the basement so he could not interact with any patrons in the future.

4)  It was a bright and sunny day as I waited in line at the Starbucks located at 7351 Assateague Drive, Suite 90, Jessup, MD 20794.  This location does not have a formal barrier so they use barrels of products to outline the spacing of the line.  To the left is a small aisle to get to the bathroom.  It also extends to the right to the exit.  Most people wait a few steps back closer to the seating area to prevent blocking people’s access to the restrooms.  On this occasion I did the same.  A short, dark-skinned black “Christian” literally waltzed in the store and walked right in front of me and stood in line.  I informed her I was next in line.  She said, “oh I didn’t know you were in line.”  This black “Christian” knew exactly what she was doing and even after informing her she would not remove herself and take her proper place in line.  When the cashier opened for the next customer, I had to walk right in front of her to place my order to which she said absolutely nothing.  By this time the other customers in the Starbucks were staring at her as she kept looking down and around as if she did nothing wrong.

5) One afternoon was returning a rental car at the BWI, now Thurgood Marshall airport in Hanover, Maryland.  The main airport as any other usual airports have shuttle buses for passengers to ride from various pick up and drop off points. In front of the airport there is an island in between the airport station on one said and another road on the other side.  This island is also a shuttle stop with a plexi-glass covered waiting bench.  I was  walking outside of the main entrance of the airport, I had to cross the first road and by the time I reached the concrete island, a black male “Christian” with cornrows starting from his forehead and going back, appearing to be in his 20’s yelled, “go back to where you came from, we don’t want you here.”  I turned around and was understandably appalled and disgusted by another ignorant a*# n*@#! yelling such offensive words to–yes another Black American who is a covered Sunni Muslims.  I stopped, turned around and in a very audible tone responded, “Excuse me?”  He stepped back into the covered shuttle bus stopped, turned away and said nothing further.  This is one of the consistent types of behavior I have witnessed throughout the years of ghetto black “Christians”–they will always jump on a bandwagon without facts, will always attack other people of color and then wonder why, they will always be looked upon as ignorant animals–because this is exactly how they act.  Ghetto Black “Christians” believe that if they align themselves with groups that already hate them, they will somehow garner the respect of those people.  Newsflash, if they hated you before they hated other people, they will still hate you just as much as their new target group, only now they have ABSOLUTELY no respect for your kind.

6)  It was an early workday in NW Washington, D.C.  I was walking to the office from the direction of Gallery Place-Chinatown metro station located at 630 H St NW, Washington, DC 20001.  Thus, I was walking in a northwesterly direction on the left side of the street.  In the opposite direction on the same sidewalk and several feet away was a police officer with his head down looking at his cell phone.  To my right I could see a dark-skinned black male “Christian” STRANGER darting from the sidewalk across the street at a diagonal towards my direction.  Initially I thought he was trying to avoid oncoming traffic, until I noticed he looked dead at me and even faster. I kept walking in the direction where I was going and this black male “Christian” stranger said to me, “F*#!@ you and your white boyfriend.” I did not know him at all and found his words odd as I have never seen him before.  Granted, there are a lot of drug users, drunks, street harassers and panhandlers in this area but whatever his illogical reasoning, I was his target. At this time the officer was just passing me to my left and did nothing, a white women looked at the black male strangely and continued walking in the same direction as the officer who was oblivious the entire time and out of sight by the time the incident transpired.

7)  I was at a place of business in Howard County, Maryland in the early morning one day where a dark skinned black male was making a lot of noise and disrupting customers.  His conduct was apparently reported to either an employee or manager.  I continued as other customers to go about my business in which the dark-skinned black male “Christian” stranger yelled at me [inaudible….] then “…go back from wherever the hell you came from.”  Yes, another dark-skinned black male “Christian” so blindly following the most rent popular bandwagon emphasized by the media he told another Black American to leave the United States as a foreigner.  His words definitively reflected his lack of intelligence.

8)  One sunny morning I was at a place of business in Anne Arundel County, Maryland near Elkridge Landing Road.  Only a couple of people were in line, including myself.  While we were waiting a dark-skinned, short black female entered the location and walked straight to the counter, interrupting the customer who was currently being waited on and jumping the line.  I informed her that she needed to wait in line and that she cannot just jump ahead of someone.  She was not there to ask a quick question, she literally wanted to have her transaction conducted immediately.  She responded about something she had as if she was the only one related to the company’s business.  She thereafter came towards me and attempted to stare me down so I stared back at her.  She decided not to wait in line and left soon after.

9) It was a late afternoon in which I ventured to Harris Teeter located at 14702 Baltimore Ave, Laurel, Maryland 20707.  I was in the beverage section near the individual carbonated water above where the 24 packs of spring water shelves were.  I was comparing a couple of bottles when I sensed someone was behind me. When I turned, a dark-skinned black male “Christian” STRANGER was standing directly behind me as if he was preparing to accost me (hump). I gave a look of disgust and he had the audacity to make this dismissive waving gesture towards me. I then spoke in a raised tone and informed him you don’t come up behind a woman like that and that he was inappropriate. I was very upset and continued as to why most women “don’t want a black man.” and how disgusting he was.  I cannot fathom why black males in particular think that they would receive a positive reaction for accosting, disrespecting and sexually harassing a religiously clad woman. The black male stranger was simply disrespectful and mocking a Sunni Muslim woman (me).  He left the aisle and I proceeded to find a register to check out of. I saw in standing in one line as if he never did anything wrong. I could not help but continue to berate him for his disrespectful and demonic behavior. I was walking behind a white male who said ‘excuse me’ to the line that was extended and turned to the rapey black male “Christian” and said “that is how you speak to people.” He turned away and looked down at the floor and pretended he did not know what I was referring to.  I was in the same line as the white guy and told him why I was so upset and what the black male attempted to do. He agreed with my reaction and informed me he used to be a volunteer firefighter and about self-defense.

10) On one occasion I ventured to the AMC-Columbia 14 movie theatre located at10300 Little Patuxent Pkwy, Columbia, Maryland 21044 (Howard County). Sometimes the ticket window has a clock which indicates when the window will open and other times it will have the incorrect time or has not been updated.  I was attempting to get the attention of one of the employees as the clock appeared to be incorrect. I was ignored.  I continued to wait in line when I noticed a few minutes later and elderly white couple did the same thing I attempted to do–get the attention of an employee.  Within one minute a Puerto Rican or bi-racial male with a ‘man-bun’ atop his head appeared at the door of the theatre, opened it and responded to the white couple’s question.  When I tried to follow suit, he immediately closed the door and walked away as if he did not see me-though I was at the theatre storefront before the white couple even appeared.  I reported the black male’s discriminatory behavior to the assistant manager and she attempted to resolve the issue.  Apparently, he was racist against Muslims and the assistant manager said she had to escalate it to upper management.  A member of upper management contacted me and apologized for the employees behavior and stated “a person should be able to go to the movies without having to deal with something like this.”  I agree, especially since there are so many Americans who claim Muslims don’t integrate, keep to themselves–which is farthest from the truth, but broader society makes it quite difficult for Muslim Americans to go about their lives normally just like anyone else.  This particular member of upper management was also a Sunni Muslim male and let me know that he informed the employee that he was a Muslim too.  He did not disclose to me the specifics of the remainder of the conversation, but it was handled.  I acknowledge that this particular incident was not street/sexual harassment but does display the continuous disrespect and discrimination in other forms that many Sunni Muslim Black American women endure on a daily basis.

at the Harris Teeter at Kings Contrivance Village

One morning at approximately 10:00 a.m.,  I was shopping at the Harris Teeter grocer on Kings Contrivance village center in 8620 Guilford Rd, Columbia, MD 21046.  After a couple of minutes in one aisle of the produce section. I noticed that one of its tall, black male employees was likely following me.  I had not been in the store for long and initially dismissed my passing thought. I continued to another aisle of the section and noticed the same thing which also happened in the aisle right parallel to the wall refrigerator.  There were other shoppers around so I decided to get the attention of a female employee who was in the salad section. I explained to her that her black male co-worker was following me though I did nothing wrong.  She had already noticed his behavior and decided to wait with me while I retrieved my salad and walked with me part way to the register.

I was disgusted that a black male employee of a grocer (happens frequently in Columbia, Maryland H Teeter storefrontstores) was trying to intimidate me. He was a total stranger, did not articulate anything and just stared at me stone-faced as if he wanted me to leave the store.

The manager was contacted and as usual it was a white male who feigned a shocked reaction said, but “he’s married?!”  My response was today’s black males don’t care about that.  I also informed him how the female employee already noticed her co-worker’s behavior and assisted me. There is a pattern in which certain white males will, for reasons explored in several blogs across the country (U.S.) and articles of the co-sign of black male abuse of black women.  To the white men who do this, you become an accessory and are just as guilty as the perpetrator. I do not know what the white male’s manager motive was for providing the relationship status of the black male employee as his conduct would have been offensive to me (the shopper) whether he was single or not.  The reality was that it was just another typical black “Christian” male with no morals and an inclination to harm women.

Many black women have learned over the years that they are on their own, no longer will society to the right thing and when it does it is most likely someone of another race protecting the decent black woman—because they do need protection—from so many black men of today.

Some thoughts: Special episode of Law & Order SVU and hypocritical Black violence

In a 2011 episode of Law & Order SVU, Terrence Howard guest stars as the Los Angeles Deputy ADA who treks to New York as a defense attorney for a relative accused of rape.  There are multiple generations involved in both sides and the white female victim being brainwashed with racial hatred by her grandfather her entire life. Both the victim and the accused are hauled off to jail for different crimes.

 

The black grandmother was a civil rights volunteer and activist during the 1960s in which the Ku Klux Klan gang-raped her and used the defense she was a prostitute.  This apparently was a tactic that was widespread as voter intimidation against blacks.

There is a poignant scene in which the grandmother poses the question to ADA Novak, “Have you ever been spat upon, looked at as less than human?” law and order svu

My honest thoughts, nearly every day, by black “Christians” (both male and female).  All I had to do was replace “spat” with “street and sexually harassed” and it would be accurate.  Here is a black woman asking a white woman has she ever been degraded because of her race, and now in the 2000’s it is a black woman who is a Sunni Muslim who can ask the same thing to black “Christians.”  The hypocrisy of Black American “Christians” in modern America is distasteful and is veiled by their own rhetoric to always play victim when they are actually the perpetrator.  This does not go unnoticed.  For some reason, black “Christians” who make up their own dogma believe they do not have to account for their actions.  Why? Because Democrats, which most them are always find a way to justify their behavior and blame the victim.  They are the first to squawk about black unity when they are the ones who destroy other blacks’ lives, communities and victimize other blacks as a whole.  These black “Christians” are quite aware of what they are doing and have no qualms to promote their hatred in Jesus name.  This is the vast majority of black “Christians” via street, sexual and workplace harassment of other Blacks.  There is nothing sanctified about them and quite the opposite.  They are demonic liars and would do ANYTHING to harm blacks for entertainment.  Black “Christians” today are sadistic ‘sell-outs’ despite their act of being the garrisons of black consciousness.

…at the Whole Foods in Columbia, Maryland (Howard County)

whole foodsOne morning at approximately 9:00 a.m.,  I was entering the Whole Foods grocer 10275 Little Patuxent Pkwy, Columbia, Maryland 21044 (Howard County), from my car in the designated parking lot.  I noticed a dark-skinned black “Christian” male approximately 5’9” in height who appeared to be from the City of Baltimore (unkempt, ignorant face, bubble eyes and a sneer).  There are two sets of doors from which you may enter. When I left my car, I noticed he was walking quickly from my left, where the actual exit door was to the right, where I needed to enter.

I proceed to walk to the far, right entry door closer to where the carts are kept outside as he appeared to photowalk to the left set. As soon as he saw me entering a separate set of doors, he did an about face and walked behind me and murmured something. I immediately zigged and went to the doors to the far left.  Apparently, this dark-skinned black “Christian” male was already harassing other patrons as I noticed a Caucasian female Howard County police officer in uniform standing alert in the eating area. I grabbed a handbasket and proceeded to the fresh food/self-service area.  The same dark-skinned black male “Christian” followed me, this time with Whole Foods employees noticing. I immediately proceeded to a different section and saw the police officer quickly move towards the black male to address his behavior.  After my purchase, I went to the eating area to obtain utensils and napkins and saw a black male eating, glance at me and then look down at his food.  I thought, ‘…must be quite embarrassing that a white woman in uniform have to monitor black males just so people can get groceries in peace.’  This is the so-called suburbs of Maryland.
