Re: It must get really, really boring
>As a guy who doesn't suffer it, that's not a call you get to make for the opposite gender.
I can't think of any reason for which men can't be on the receiving end. You personally might not but this is definately not a gender specific issue.
>"Should we stop all forms of compliments to unknown women ?"
By including "in private - on a dark street." This completely changes the context which has no bearing to my intial question/remark.
>You are comparing an apple and an orange. Shouting "Nice tits!" across a road is rather different to smiling to someone who serves you, or holding a door open.
As I previously mentioned Cat-Calling where I am from is usually guys whistling at women, you have pushed the barrier much further and moved into another context.
>We can't cater to that without causing offence to the majority of others. So their fragile little ego is going to have to learn to cope without morons publicly objectifying them.
Ah, so you pick and choose what you cater too according to what ? I honestly don't imagine that it is the "majority" of women that suffer from CatCalling either, so we probably shouldn't cater to them either. You are delibarately picking and choosing your victims, it's either one law for everone or for no-one.
>Some women might quite like being groped in public.
And now you have really upped thte game and we are suddently talking about groping women.. That is a far cry from a guy whistling across the street and completely out of context.
>Street harassment is a problem. Not for me or you, but to a lot of quite timid women who just happen to look pretty, it is a revolting and unpleasant experience.
Please define the word "harrassement" it is a vague term which I am sure you would be unable to define in a manner in which everyone would eventually be capable of stating that they suffer from it.
Timid people suffer from timidity, any public exposure will create a problem for them ,I think it would be extremely rare that a timid person was cat called after, they usually do not portray the kind of characters that interest CatCallers. Again timid people are a minority, according to your remarks we should not cater for the minority.
>It is NOT cool to shout compliments at strangers.
No one is saying it is cool, those are your words.
>So what your saying is that because some women quite like being treated like trash and pieces of meat it should be ok to publicly treat all women like that?
Again you are using your own words to describe what you "think" is in the mind of someone else, major mistake.
I have never seen anyone pay a compliment to or whistle after someone that they consider as a piece of trash or a piece of meat. This is pure conjecture on your behalf.
