Micro Aggression

I was walking down the street on Winthrop ave. near the Granville Red line stop when two men, with beer in hand, screamed, "You are Fucking Sexy" "Stop and talk to me!" You Can't walk away from me" "Who do you think you are to walk away from me!" My shocked face looked behind and shot a mean glance, but I didn't know what to do, I just ignored and walked away. I couldn't say anything, I couldn't stop and have a conversation. I was embarrassed and threatened. I questioned what I wear outside (It was 100 degrees) and thought maybe I should cover up more. I don't want to live in a world like that.
