I sure did holler

This evening I was walking down Christopher St, which is ironically like the gayest street in NYC. I passed a group of young dudes and one whispered at me some shit like "Hey, you looking fine. Why don't you say hi. I'd like to see that body." I was so pissed, I turned around and charged him like I was going to kick him in the nuts. He dodged me and shouted "I'll press charges!" Then I looked him in the eye and said "Why did you say that? It's an insult and you know it's an insult. Why did you insult me?" At which point the fucking dude started staring at my cleavage and saying something about how he wanted to be my friend. I decided to make a big scene so I started yelling "You insulted me because you think you're better than me. You're a stranger and you insulted me!" His friends were laughing and I was so angry, but I wasn't really going to fight him so I just turned and left.

It probably wasn't the most productive reaction, but I was enraged. The whispering really drives me nuts, because it means the dude doesn't even have the nerve to really talk to me.
