    I didn't really follow that except insofar as I would say that sexualized harassment is generally worse than, say, people invading my private space every time I leave the supermarket to donate to one cause or another.

    Yeah, but those guys are standing by the side of the store and you can walk away. Ever have one follow you for half a city block?

    They invade my space, but I definitely put them near the bottom of the totem pole as harassment goes. They're still super annoying though.

    Re: Cat Calling

    I don't really have a good or bad opinion and I've been cat called many times. In my neighborhood someone saying hey mama or something like that is common and I guess maybe I just am used to it and just smile and keep walking. If they take it further or are bein creepy I'll just tell them to **** off and that seems to work just fine.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Seriously?
    Yes. Don't try to downplay when you have already made an attempt to level it.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Ahh, so how bad something is, how much we should count one's feeling of anxiety and discomfort, depends not on that level but how you preserve the effects being.

    K

    So would you say catcalling should be illegal while those other forms of harassment should remain legal?

    Just gauging response and asking opinion. Is that odd for a debate board?
