“If he has a butt for touching and lips for kissing, I’m going for that.”

I feel like the harassment and cat calling has been getting worse in Astoria which sometimes leads to touching and grabbing. I’m in the Ditmars area and even walking on the residential streets I’ve gotten dudes yelling or making gross comments as I am walking by. Its the same when I pass the commercial avenues. The degree of aggression, hounding and stalking is very apparent in Astoria compared to other places I lived.
