straight people desperately trying to include me in the heteronormative discussion

I just had some dude in a car follow me for over a mile while I was on my moped.
He started out behind me, but proceeded to stay in the lane next to me with his windows down so he could holler/catcall/insult me. My moped is obviously vintage, and very tiny, so he obviously knew I couldn’t “outrun” him or anything, and just kept following/harassing me! Without a vehicle body around me, I was open to his harassments and possible injury.
So I hopped a sidewalk in downtown, went over a pedestrian bridge, and stopped my moped on the sidewalk of the academic mall of the university near my house. Only there, on the safety of sidewalks that his car couldn’t access and security cameras did I feel safe. I sat there for about 10 minutes before finishing the last few blocks of my ride home, certain that he wouldn’t be following me to my home/find out where I lived.
This man was white, middle-aged, and driving a really nice car. He seemed sober, and was driving well, aside from endangering me when he was occupying the lane I was already in for a little bit. This man looks like every teacher and doctor I’ve ever had, and the police wouldn’t ever guess it was him if I went missing. Yet he’s the one who tailed and harassed me.
I didn’t approach him. I didn’t even look at him, he was behind me until after the point at which he first began harassing me. It’s cold out, and I was in full outerwear (read:he couldn’t even see my whole face). I literally did nothing to bring this on. All I did in response was ignore him, then tell him to get out of my lane, and later I said “fuck off” and he laughed at me… at which point I hopped onto the sidewalk (which is illegal on a moped, and I could have been ticketed for). This is a fucking unprecedented level of street harassment that not only made me uncomfortable but actually literally endangered me.

Love should never “make you be” it should just “let you be”
