RAD’s Story: “I was shocked and embarrassed”

I was dropping a young woman off at the metro station after a date late Friday night when two drunk men sitting on the curb by the entrance to the station began yelling at us. One of them shouted, “Oh My God look at her!” and something about “my woman”. I was shocked and embarrassed. I didn’t say anything: we just walked past and into the metro station so the situation didn’t escalate. Then, I felt awful for not standing up to the verbal harassment.
