An issue like this isn't new to us. Every day lots of people are being harassed in any places around the world. People do catcalling at a random stranger and we know that catcalling is not a compliment, it is a form of harassment. Girls are not just the one who are being catcalled, boys, gays, young, old, no matter what your gender is or how old you are, people will still catcall you. Even those people who wear full covered clothes are still being catcalled.
Nothing's more scary than people who will calls you by name and then randomly calls you "hey, babe" "witwiw, sexy" "how much?" and the most common is "psst! 150". People think that they're giving compliments but they're not, they're actually making someone feel so very uncomfortable.
I can relate to the girl's reaction on the jeepney as to what ate Yen's husband told her about the girl. This happened to me just a couple of years ago. It was Sunday and I was on the bus back to our boarding house. I was wearing a white shirt and a black short that time, when I entered the bus, there were no available seats except at the back, where there were two seats. There was a guy at the window seat and he was sleeping, so I didn't mind him at all and I just sat there playing with my phone. We know that the bus is a bit shaky. When the bus was about to turn, I noticed him moving slowly towards me, but he was still sleeping. I don't know if he was truly asleep though. Then, until he slowly lent his head to my shoulder, and me being a good girl, I just let him sleep on my shoulder, because I thought that maybe he was so tired. He was just like me, or I guess he was 3 years older than me.
He slept on my shoulder for a couple of minutes, then all of a sudden he slowly put his hands in my legs. My heart began to race. I froze a bit, and I didn't know what to do. My heart began to race so fast. Then I get the urge to put his hands away as well as his head off my shoulder. But then he started to lend his head again. I started to feel nervous, so I looked for the conductor. My eyes were roaming around looking for the conductor, then I finally saw him. Luckily, he saw me, I didn't say a word, I just stared at him. Maybe he noticed that I was feeling uncomfortable, so he approached me. He then asked me if I knew the guy beside me, I immediately told him that I didn't know him. Without hesitation, he taps the guy's head and it wakes him up. He told the guy to sit on the other vacant seat in front.
Then the conductor told me something. He said, "If you feel uncomfortable, don't hesitate to call someone, especially that you're a girl." My heart was still racing and all I said to him was "salamat kuya".
I was so thankful for the conductor who helped me that time. I will never forget him. He's an angel sent from above. I hope that there are still guys who are the same as him.
