Do you feel that they rejected you specifically? Were there other men lying on the floor? If so, were those men near the women? It could just be that the women felt you were trying to look up their skirts or something from your position on the floor (which I'm sure you weren't). It could have just been a big misunderstanding, buddy. I wasn't there, so I can't say for certain, though.
I also wanted to tell you that I think you're very brave, buddy. You overcame your desire to isolate yourself and went out into public. Maybe the result was bad, but don't discount the bravery it took to get you there. That's a really huge accomplishment, buddy! Maybe not for "normal" people, but for an abuse survivor, sometimes just getting outdoors is a success!
I'm sorry the result wasn't what you wanted, but I'm proud of you that you tried. As I've been told recently, the real failure would have been not to try at all. But you did!
