Amy Pond: Well then… I just have to blink, right?

The Doctor: No!

Amy Pond: It’ll be fine. I know it will. I’ll be with him. Like I should be. Me and Rory together. Melody…

The Doctor: Stop it! Just, just stop it!

Amy Pond: You be a good girl, and you look after him.

The Doctor: You are creating a fixed time. I will never be able to see you again.

Amy Pond: I’ll be fine. I’ll be with him.

The Doctor: [Desperately] Amy… please! Just come back into the TARDIS. Come along, Pond, please!

Amy Pond: Raggedy Man…goodbye

Over the past two years, I’ve lived in six cities in two states — Arizona, New York — and the District of Columbia. And one of the first things I always notice about each new place is the street harassment.

Manhattan and Brooklyn were rough. During my first week of work in Manhattan, a tall man in a coat said “good morning, baby” to me as he masturbated. Calls of “hey baby” were almost as common as “good morning.” In Phoenix, I got harassed in my car during rush hour gridlock with honks, “heys” and sexually explicit gestures. And during my first month interning with NPR in Washington, D.C., I was honked at, leered at, “hey baby'ed” and, once, even followed to work.

I’m not alone. A 2014 survey commissioned by Stop Street Harassment, a nonprofit that works to document and end street harassment, showed that 65 percent of all women in the U.S. said they had experienced street harassment. In the 2,000-person nationally representative poll, 23 percent of U.S. women said they’d been touched and 20 percent had been followed. Among men, about a quarter surveyed said they had been harassed on the street.

Queria poder dizer pra você que sempre estarei ao seu lado, mas não posso. Quero voar sozinho; procurar um novo rumo; conhecer pessoas; conhecer lugares; quero me aventurar, me arriscar; aproveitar um pouco a vida e a liberdade que ela nos proporciona. Talvez um dia eu volte, mas peço que não me espere.
