Why do people like to pretend that cat calling is illegal when all it is, is just whistling or saying something to someone?

Ita not like it even hurts anybody.

    It is impolite, try using apps to get to know girls.

    There are some in this country who would dispense with the entire First Amendment just to avoid hurt feelings. If your point is that we've raised a generation totally ignorant of the concept of free speech, you're right. But until you've been a woman alone in shoes that don't allow for running and you've had six guys on a construction site threaten to rape you you don't really know how catcalling CAN actually induce trauma.

    If it's someone coming over to chat to you, it's fine. Yelling 'Hey Sexy' or something down the street at someone is not. Nobody should really have to explain that to you.

    That's besides the point. Cat calling objectifies women and makes them feel as though if they walk down a street all men see is a piece of meat and not an actual person. It's different to actually approach someone and say 'hey, I hope you don't mind, but you look really good today.' Rather than whistling or yelling 'what's up cutie' down the street to show how big your dick is in front of your mates and make a girl uncomfortable.

      no, because that is their choice. If you choose a particular way of life then that's up to you. Cat calling to random girls unwarranted is not their choice, and wearing a swimsuit is the appropriate call at the beach, it's only objectifying if you view it as a sexual thing rather than what it is.

    They're mostly SJW's. That's why they are triggered and massive snowflakes.

      Are you sure you aren’t the triggered one?

    It does hurt people, otherwise it would not be an issue.
