    No, I just don't know what (if anything) we're actually debating over.

    I found it interesting the hierarchy of harassment that was being proposed and wondered how far it would be taken.

    You had previously classified cat calling as worse than general harassment that can occur in the city, yes? Even though they can produce the same effects in people, similar anxiety and uncomfortable feelings and the desire to flee from the harassment. In fact, being followed by someone whose harassment is not sexual in nature, you put at "near the bottom of the totem pole". Right? So you make a hierarchy of harassment based on perceptions of intent.

    I was just interested in this hierarchy and how far it should go. For instance, should cat calling be made illegal while other forms of harassment which produce similar physiological responses be kept legal? Does sex matter? Is a female cat calling a male just as bad, worse, or better than a man doing it to a woman? Things of that nature.

    What I imagined when I read the title.

    Anyway in regards to cat calling I have no real opinion towards as long as it isn't coupled by a threat or if the person is not intruding on the others personal space. If someone feels to the need to make a statement and articulate there opinion towards something it isn't detrimental.

    The thread is sexist as it doesn't take into account that men can be cat called , and only makes it seem like a female only issue .

    Take a look at this video:



    The people who filmed 10 hours of video in predominantly ethnic areas (why they went there ask them), and the best they could muster was 2 minutes of people saying hello and a couple creepers.

    It's a fail.

    Such is life in the big city...

    Re: Cat Calling

    I think it's stupid and immature, but because it's typically harmless, I don't care. There are much bigger problems to worry about than someone saying something insensitive to another person. Of course, the radical feminists act like it's the end of the world because they are typically over-emotional, over-sensitive and entirely self-centered.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    sorry american w ,but I cant understand how a woman can get used to such a creepiness.when I receive a compliment I accept it with confidence but I cant smile at any verbal harrasment .I want to punch their face instead.
