Why do women hate cat calls so much?
This is a serious question, I’ve seen a lot of backlash against them and I would like to know the reason.
A cat call is a quick way of saying “Girl u lookin fine”. Personally, if I a group of random girls told me how fine I looked I would stand taller and feel better about myself throughout the rest of the day
From what I have gathered up, it seems to be offensive because it degrades women. But I don’t get it. The men who cat call aren’t trying to degrade you, they are simply appreciating your looks.
I am probably entirely wrong, that’s why I am asking you now.
I would greatly appreciate it if someone could clarify this for me. If you need a lot of space to write out a long answer, send me a message and I will open up my submit box.
Why do women find cat calls offensive?
Gee, why would women not appreciate men confronting them in a public place in order to declare how fuckable they are in an unsolicited manner?
Why, in a culture that tells women that if they let their guard down around strange men that they will be raped and it will be their fault if they are, would women not appreciate strange men commenting on their bodies in a public place, often while they are walking alone?
Why, in a society where 1/4 women will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime, would women not appreciate being told they have “nice tits!” on the street by men who are often much larger and physically stronger than they are?
Why, in a media landscape that habitually reduces women’s bodies into advertisements for beer and cars and judges women primarily by absurd and unattainable beauty standards, would a woman not appreciate being complimented solely for having a “nice ass” by a total stranger?
