Abstract

I was walking with two friends, when a man started asking if I was a guy or a girl. When I didn’t answer and walked on, he started shouting louder, threatening to hit me. He then decided I was a girl and started singing a song about how he was going to rape me. He followed us down the road singing this song till he got bored of us not replying. – 22 year old trans man.
