Nice Peanut, Psycho

I just read about Hollaback on Jezebel. I'm really glad you're doing this - and what perfect timing too!

Two days ago, I was walking to my car after work. A man was walking down the sidewalk in parallel, and I noticed him because he was staring at me intently. I didn't feel comfortable, so I waited for him to pass before I continued to the parking lot. When I reached my car, I saw he had stopped at the parking lot entrance, unzipped his pants, and was shaking his penis at me, making sure I was watching.

Frankly, I've seen this enough times in my life that it doesn't shock me anymore. And I've found it's better not to react - men who do this seem to revel in the attention (although one time when it happened in a safe public place, I did yell out to people nearby to check out the man with the small penis - that shamed him pretty quickly! I would not recommend this in all situations, but boy, was it satisfying).

So I got in my car, followed him down the street, then slowed down long enough to take the attached picture. I didn't really care if I got a clear shot; I just wanted him to think I did. In fact, I never thought I would even look at the photo again.

But now I can do something with this photo. Even if it's never posted, it's heartening to know there are people who take this seriously and are doing something about it. So thank you. Please keep doing what you're doing!
