Today on the train home, I witnessed a woman, a senior citizen, being verbally abused by another, middle aged man. (Also a passenger). At first I thought they knew each other or he was having a friendly joke. I then realised he was swearing at her and saying things that I have never heard come out of someone's mouth. I stood up, approached the pair and asked what was going on. I asked the man why he was talking to this woman so rudely. He replied that she didn't leave him enough leg room. I dismissed the man and turned to the woman and asked if she would like to take a seat next to me because, I did not mind if she took up extra leg room. The woman said she'd love to, moved with me and we sat together while this man went on for a bit longer. Later during the commute, the woman asked me if he was still on the train, as she was not facing him. The pair unfortunately got off at the same train station. The woman expressed to me, before leaving her seat, that she did not want him following her home. So, I suggested she take the other doors on the train and she did. This was a peak our train. This should have never happened, it is appalling that this middle aged man thought what he was doing was justified. I think that anyone that sees something happening on public transport, or anywhere else, should step in and tell the person that might be being: racist, prejudice, sexist or just plain stupid that it is not okay. It is not okay for that senior citizen to walk home scared from the train station, or to be scared on the train! I really think we should be taking a stand against this anti-social behaviour. That is why I feel strongly about the Immigration Museum's Talking Difference project. I never knew I could be the person that would stand up to someone else, I hardly stand up for myself. Let's not make this world any worse and I really urge you to check the Talking Difference website and be the positive, welcoming and accepting people we need in this world.
