    Not really, but it's a different thing in different cities.

    If you're in a small town where everyone says hello to everyone else, or in a small enclave in a big city (like Breezy Point), then a man saying "hello" to a woman is just one person saying "hello" to another person.

    That's not what is happening in these instances. I can easily walk past 500 people on my way to work in the morning, and that's just a few blocks. If I said hello to every person in the morning, I'd never make it to work.

    As you noted: These guys are not saying hello to a neighbor, they're hitting on a random female, at any time of day or night. What is polite and normal in Smallville is a sexual advance in The Big City.

    The fact that our society has jerks to harass women on the street in the not the problem. That people make excuses for their behavior and blame the victim is. This thread itself is a perfect example of the problem. There are more posts attacking the women in the video than the catcalling assholes.

    I think that those "attacking the women" are more concerned with her agenda...

There certainly is a line between a tasteful compliment and a sexual compliment. If that's the worst they got from 10 hours of walking thru the streets of a big city, then I don't see the issue. I would be interested to see all the other comments they did not include in the video.
    This girl surely isn't a Southern Girl. She acted like she was from New York.

    Also maybe its just me, but I really question the validity of most of these types of videos. Ive lived in a few major cities. And yes some guys make comments to a woman walking by. However Ive never seen anyone harassed by almost every guy she walks by. I think there was something else that we arent seeing.
    It was a 2 minute video over the course of 10 hours of walking the streets. That means that she was un harassed for 9 hours and 58 minutes. How long do people usually walk in New York City?

    Let's assume the average woman walks for 1 hour per day. Utilizing math that woman is likely to be forced to endure 12 seconds of harassment each day.

    No, it means that roughly every two weeks a women will have to seriously worry about her safety by some stalker following her around. That is not acceptable by any stretch, even more so because so many others condone it.

    I stated clearly that some of those guys were losers and one specifically was creepy... but you can whine in your emotional quandary if you like about whatever you like.

    Her agenda was to document the harassment women face on the streets of new york. What exactly about that is worth attacking her over?
