People are always telling me catcalling women is wrong to do, but also I hear stories all the time of women who have low self image and think they’re ugly when they’re really beautiful so why is giving women compliments on the street such a sexist and bad thing to do? I’m not attacking anyone I’m not hurting anyone. I’m just giving compliments and saying they are beautiful. Why is that a bad thing? Also like my man Wayne Gretzky once said, you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. Yeah I know there is a very small chance a woman is going to turn around and be mad flattered and give me her number, but you never know. It’s like the lottery. You gotta be in it to win it. Sometimes in life you just gotta be honest. When you see a beautiful woman you gotta just say “Look at that ass, mama! Goddamn!” -- Jinder from Cleveland, Ohio
It’s fine to give compliments, but it should be in a respectful way and it shouldn’t be shouted or even whispered creepily into a woman’s ear as you’re walking behind her. Catcalling might give some women confidence, but the reason it’s not encouraged to enhance female self esteem is because men will basically catcall anything that even remotely looks like it has a vagina. In fact, a man is more likely to catcall a woman he deems to be whorish because he sees his chances of success as higher. Obviously if you saw Kate Middleton or something you wouldn’t catcall her because that’s a classy lady and your odds of banging her in the street are basically 0.00%. Men see a random woman wearing just a thong and a tube top and think maybe that’s more like 0.01% which is still better odds. So being catcalled isn’t really a way to help women out. If you want to compliment a woman, follow her around, sit near her in Starbucks and then casually start up a conversation about the book she’s reading, then say “Oh by the way, you got a really nice ass, mama. Goddamn.” Well not those words precisely, but you see how even that sounds better if a little more formal than a catcall.
Ultimately it all depends on your status as a man. If George Clooney was going around catcalling random women I’m sure they wouldn’t complain as much, but if you’re some disheveled hobo then that’s harassment. I suppose that’s a little discriminatory, but if you’re the one offending women then you don’t get to feel offended back. It was okay for Wayne Gretzky to say you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take because that guy was really good at making shots. Now if you’re not a good shot then sometimes it’s better to just save your energy and stop shooting blindly because that makes you look like a desperate asshole. Hope that helps!
