    Absolutely not. Not ever. I'd never give them the satisfaction.

    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.
    Well, there are cat-calls...and then there are cat-calls. As Summerwind said, there's quite a difference between "Hey, baby!" and "Hey, baby, come sit on my face!"

    I have been known to flip them the bird if they're just being gross, so I guess I'm not entirely saintly, but it's only a split second gesture... :::hanging head in mock shame:::::

    Re: Cat Calling

    On the times that it has happened to me is always been a mixture of flattered and embarrassment. I think overall that i'd rather have nobody say anything to me while I am walking down the sidewalk than have somebody say something, but if somebody said something genuinely nice then i'd say thank you and keep walking since it's still kind of awkward.

    Take a look at this video:

    That actually happened to me once. Some guy in his car in West Hollywood wolf whistled to me as I was out on the sidewalk doing some errands. He was stopped at a traffic light, so he had a lot of time to stretch the moment out. I've gotta say, if you're a man and have never had this happen to you yourself, it's kind of a disturbing and gross experience.

    Re: Cat Calling

    In my prime, I received all too many cat calls, vulgar suggestions, propositions, etc. The worst is when a guy just follows or walks beside you, leering. My stomach was in a knot the whole time, and I kinda relived that instance when I watched the video. I was always nervous having to walk past a group of males, but you learn early on to pretend you don't see them, don't hear them, and never show fear.

    To this day there are guys who insist it's a great compliment to be sexually harassed in public, women should be grateful for the attention, and if any woman doesn't like it, she's clearly a femi-nazi who hates men.

    Well, yea... If it's from a guy. Getting it from a woman can be kind of weird, but generally doesn't register as being much more than mildly amusing at best, and annoyingly creepy at worst.

    Greetings, DiAnna.

    My answer to that is : I'd suggest that they put the shoe on the other foot, but they'd probably like it! :

    Re: Cat Calling

    several years ago, in front of the courthouse where my office was once located, I was waiting for my brother to pick me up and I was talking to a couple Deputy Marshals I knew. a very attractive 20 something black lady in a really cute short skirted suit comes walking by and three mopes walking by started making all sorts of rude comments. she ignored them to the point one of the mopes yelled "how you gonna get any dick if you don't pay us no attention". the three of us just stared since we couldn't believe the rudeness of those asses. One of the deputies finally said "show some respect asshole" to them and they sort of shut up and left figuring correctly that the guy who told them to STFU was a LEO. we then commented on how that young lady must have felt. I suggested that its too bad she wasn't packing and both the other guys said "yeah, sometimes that is the only lesson the works with people like that"

    I find that sort of behavior idiotic and when you witness it like I did, you realize how juvenile it was. Now if they had said something like "mighty fine suit you have" or something like that, that's one thing but these guys were using the X rated version
