    Since when did that become the way to meet someone? Can't you walk up to her & introduce yourself (without staring at her boobs)?

    Everyone regardless of gender or appearance is entitled to not get unwanted attention.

    However when I was younger my partner used to get wolf whistles and catcalls everyday she used to turn round and give two fingers to the person or people. Then she would smile.

    I once asked why if she was offended enough to lob the v's why did she smile. She said while it wasn't invited it was a compliment and boosted her ego.

    For the same reason people should not have racist and homophobic slurs screamed at them when they walk down the street. It's a form of verbal assault and makes going outside a miserable/degrading/terrifying experience, just as the assailant intends it to.

    Freedom of speech involves freedom to listen. If i don't want to listen to you, should you be allowed to impose your speech on me?

    Because it's a form of bullying, verbal assault, intimidation and it's rude, disrespectful and immature.

    Only a really ignorant boy thinks it;s okay to cat-call.

    It lets everyone within earshot know that he's a silly little boy who doesn't know how to behave.

    Why do men - they don't even have to be young and attractive - think that they're entitled to not have me sneak up behind them and whisper that they have a purdy mouth? They seem to think that me exercising my freedom of speech means they can break the law by assaulting me! That is FASCISM!
