    I have the same disorder. I spent 5 hours in Yorkdale today. I like Yorkdale better than the Eaton Center...less thugs that just rolled in off the TTC, lol.

    I would suggest on buying pepper spray if you don't already have any. Buying a gun may just lead to more unnecessary problems.. As for problems regarding buses etc, I haven't come across any. However, it's most likely due to the fact that I'm a guy..

    Hooray for Australian clothing!

    Wow Celeste... That's awful.

    I don't take public transport much, but when I take the train to my friend's house nothing bad happens really... some boguns (Australian word for thugs kind of) come on the train but that's about it.

    I've had one guy ask to "look at my iPod" but I just told him to piss off.

    2) Being asked to buy weed
    3) Being asked to buy and re-sell cocaine
    4) Being asked to come to someone's apartment to do a "modeling" audition
    5) Having someone sit down beside me and put their arm around me
    6) Having someone shout obscene sexual things at me loud enough for the whole train car to hear
    7) Solicited for sexual acts
    8) Asked on dates from people I'd never laid eyes on before
    9) Been slapped on the ass by a drunk homeless man
    10) Been preached to and given religious documents for my entire trip
    11) Been freaked out by people praising Allah...frantically speaking in Arabic and looking really suspicious
    12) Been cornered by 2 guys and asked out...them NOT leaving me alone until my ride showed up outside the station
    13) Attempted purse snatching

    Maybe some of it doesn't seem like a bit deal, but when you're alone, small, female, and generally a frightened person, it just isn't good.

    Yesterday evening I was groped twice on the subway by an east-indian looking man, and I quickly yelped and moved away. He then yelled at me and stared at me, calling me awful things for what seemed like 10 minutes. Then he groped a middle aged Asian woman, as well. I got off the subway at the next stop I could, and had a pretty severe panic attack, to say the least.

    It's really unfortunate getting sexually assaulted whilst innocently trying to get from point A to point B.

    Anyone else have bad experiences?
    What should I do (I mean besides get a driver's license, I'm working on that...it's just stressful because I learnt to drive initially in NZ where drivers aren't psychos)?

    I want a gun. Seriously. Or a huge guy to protect me.
    Omg, wow, rant.

    ive seen most of that happen, but no one really bothers me except drug dealers or drug addicts and just plain wierdo's. here in ny in the subway stations there are bum performers asking for money, by playing drums made out of garbage cans and stuff like that, and u can tell all the money is going to drugs and they are back there the next day. ive seen muggings and someone get their bag sliced open and 3 guys run to the loot like it were a piñata. crazy shit happens, but it beats paying for a car and then insurance every month, then parking. atleast in nyc that is

    I agree. Girls seem to get the bad end of the stick for nearly everything.
    I personally don't think that it is that bad here in London (but then again, I am a guy), but I always travel with my sister if she is going anywhere far on her own. I agree that I am over protective of my sister, but it is better to be safe than sorry.
    I am sorry that you have to go through this everyday.

    Some chavs started pushing me around on a bus before. After a few minutes one pulled out a knife so I punched him in the head and floored him.

    Unluckily for him, I was wearing these:


    He tried to press charges but everyone on the bus saw that it was self-defence.

    I'm not sure if you get chavs in America, but basically they are really really stupid white idiots who think their black
