New York Cat Calls

53 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

You may remember the New York chick who captured over ten hours of video of men supposedly cat-calling her in New York a few days ago. Was she just a man-bashing ho with an agenda? Yeah. You bet she was.

I would never refer to any woman in this negative, inappropriate fashion.

I've seen the video. There's no reason to call this lady a derogatory slur because you don't agree with what she did. Instead of growing thicker skin, maybe folks should learn to respect one another.

There is a definite difference between the two videos. In the first, with the lady walking through New York, there is definitely some cat calling going on. Granted, some of it is not necessarily offensive, but I'm sure it gets old fast.

In this one, he's in a store which creates a totally different situation. He's not just yelling at the women as they pass by, he's having an actual conversation. It's not even close to the same.

I actually found the majority of the original video to be inoffensive. I'm trying to understand why she ignored the nice ones. Yes I get that she was trying to make a point, but she was bejng just as rude. The second video I found the guy to just simply be charming.

Consider the girl in the original video filmed for over ten hours, and then compiled the worst of it into the short video. There were several men who extended kind greetings to her, but she ignored them altogether.

So the premise you are putting forward is that MOST of these offensive remarks are not offensive but complimentary. And because they should be considered complimentary the remarks should be wanted and the subject should be flattered and appreciative. Essentially because she stepped into public streets ( necessary to live in NYC) she should expect that strangers can shout out opinions about her hair, her shoes, her body, her walk and not only should she accept those opinions but she should stop and thank these kind souls for taking time out of their day to make her day special.

So imagine you are walking down the street. Some lady shouts out "nice shoes" from 15 feet away. Then after a few blocks a construction worker shouts from the scaffold "Hey how did you get so smart looking" then you keep walking and two young men approach you and "hey you seem to be nice guy, come have a drink on us"

You don't know these folks , there is no context for there comments, you dont know their motives and I suspect you might feel unsafe. Should you stop and take time and walk the several yards to thank them in person? If this happened all day, I suspect you would move to a new community, these folks are whack.


The content available on a site dedicated to bringing folks to America should not be promoting racial discord, euro-supremacy, discrimination based on religion , exclusion of groups from immigration based on where they were born, disenfranchisement of voters rights based on how they might vote.

Dude, watch the video. It's so clear only someone stuck in a Wasserman Schultz mode would go where you are trying to go.

You sell what you advertise. It's always been that way.

I wouldn't feel unsafe or the need to move. I also wouldn't thank them. I have bigger things to worry about in life than someone I don't know making comments about my appearance

The problem has become that people actually SEEK out ways to feel offended, rather than actually be offended. "People say that I should be offended by this, therefore I am offended"

People need to grow the F up and stop trying to find reasons to be angry and offended. Life is too short.

Not at all. I didn't mean to come across that way. I'd say annoyed is more appropriate than angry. Everyone has something to be butt-hurt over.
