Got photo of my body taken by uncle on mrt
Just still kinda shaken up honestly posting here just because I’m full of regret and blaming myself.
I know he was taking pictures of me because I’ve been glancing at him for a while now in the mrt and he had his phone angled at me and everything, would pretend to fiddle with it if he caught me looking at him.
Stared at him for a good minute after he pointed his phone at me upright for a really long time and when he noticed he panicked and his phone slipped a bit to tilt downwards, saw he was on the camera app, could tell because I could clearly see the white circle to take pics and the moving surroundings through the camera screen.
I didn’t know what to do because I didn’t want to cause a scene. I’m paranoid of going viral and stuff and there are many instances of like people blaming the girl for what she was wearing or whatever esp in like comments.
You know, the usual “if she dress liddat she should expect to be taken photo of” or wtv. I shouldn’t even be trying to justify myself but I’m just naturally more endowed I guess and sometimes my tops don’t fit me properly.
I dunno man I hate myself so much just alighted at next stop and tried to forget this happened. Really didn’t know what to do, 50 year old man probably has pics of my body in his phone now
There’s nothing to regret or blame.
If this old cheekopeh took some photo, it’s not the end of the world. He will probably share to his WhatsApp etc but in the end, you broke no laws so you don’t need to panic or be afraid
Next steps is up to you. If this has pissed you off enough, make a police report and force the issue. If you don’t want to, either because it’s a hassle or because ps to explain to the police, that’s fine too. In some cases like this you can’t change the outcome, you can only change your response to the situation.
