    well, if it helps any.. cat-calling generally comes from a good place... even if it's extremely boorish.

    No it doesn't.

    It comes from socially primitive men in a group and it means, "I saw the female and my call will be the one to attract her attention, I'm a real male, I could be Alpha!".

    Re: Cat Calling

    I confess to a whistle once or twice..just sort of happened. I think if a guy goes around doing it on purpose it's lame.
    It's not like you're going to strike up a conversation by cat calling

    Feel scared/dirty/ashamed until safe, be mega-pissed off for a few minutes at pigs posing as men who like to intimidate and degrade women, and then regain a grip and feel sorry for them and their inadequacies, and then forget about them. Men who actually like women and see us as more than, hmmm, vessels don't treat us this way.

    Very true, hence why I don't give them the satisfaction of effecting me in any way for even a moment. Not going to do it. It's a win for them every moment I do, I have no intention of allowing that. Reacting to someone for words or whistles, gives them that power of effecting you, but only if you let it. No, I'll not empower them, not even for a moment.

    At least the boors who are serious about it seldom, if ever, get to reproduce.

    Take a look at this video:


    I started to pick the first option.


    Then I resented that it was restricted to women, so I'mma flounce off in a huff.




    Seriously, when I was a young studmuffin I got "cat called" by women on a few occasions. There were also a couple times I got my ass grabbed by a female, and a couple times I had to fend off a grabby female I wasn't interested in.

    True story and no ****.

    The "shout outs" made me feel extra-studley and put a smile on my face. The grab-assers... well one was a gal I knew and kinda liked so I kinda liked it (even though it startled the **** out of me and I spilled my drink), the other was actually irritating because it was done by someone I wasn't interested in.


    Then there was this one chick I REALLY wasn't interested in who played Twenty Hands until I finally lost my temper and barked at her quite sharply. She wasn't taking a hint and it got really annoying.



    NOW having said that... I will agree it isn't the same thing, vs being female. As a man I had a reasonable expectation that none of the aforementioned females was going to overpower me and have their way or anything like that.

    Most women have to constantly bear in mind that they're on the short end of the brute force equation if the attentive man goes beyond reasonable limits, and I can certainly imagine that would change how you'd feel about it. I can understand how a women would tend to view every catcall or unsolicited admirer as a potential threat, and I can't say I blame them.


    Its not something I generally do, though, as it seems crass and ungentlemanly.
