I've been in multiple situations where I've had to approach a man bothering a woman on a super packed bus and tell him to stop. These men have ranged from your average 18-35 year old bros to aggressively drunk/mentally unstable individuals, who I always question being allowed onto the bus in the first place when they are so obviously aggressive. Often times, these women are very young and the men are not. I am a small woman and have also been harassed on transit, many of us have I am sure. I want to know why no one, especially other men or the drivers, speaks up when this happens. It seems ridiculous to be on a bus packed with people twice my size who sit quietly while I have to tell some leering pervert to leave a 16 year old alone. Stop being passive and speak up. It's scary sometimes to have to confront some of these men but I don't understand how anyone can just sit there and let it happen.
