Some statements we heard that one evening:
“ Why else would you come to brigade road?”
“ I can stare because Im a man. Ofcourse I will stare.”
“ You were staring at me, so I thought maybe you are interested.”
“ He came upto me and asked me if I was waiting for someone, then offered me a ciggarete.”
“ He has been smiling at me, I feel like I look available to him.”
“ The collective staring worked best for me, I cant belivee that he actually moved away!”
“ Taking a photograph without permission is illegal! “
“ Street sexual harassment is also illegal.”
“ If I want I can break this camera of yours in 5 seconds!”
“ It was hard for me to stand straight, walk straight without moving my shoulders and giving way. Im so conditioned to it.”
“It was the first time i walked on brigade road without feeling violated.”
“I am a man , I’m not a hermaphrodite, I will stare”
