I was walking across Victoria Street in Hamilton with some of my girlfriends one night. As I crossed the traffic island a guy walking the other way reached out and pinched my nipple. I was so blind  angry I chased him down the street. He ran, then turned around and came at me, hands groping. I suddenly realised that in an attempt to stand up for myself, I had put myself in even more danger. No one made any comment about him violating me- people were cheering as I chased him, but no one did anything. When I got back to my friends they said I shouldn’t have been “so psycho”. When I posted this story on facebook a male friend scoffed at me for “feeling violated” and making such a big deal.
