Uppity, White Liberal Upset About Being Catcalled By Minorities In NYC

Shares 14K

An organization called Hollaback, which is aimed at stopping street harassment, posted a video of a girl walking around the streets of NYC being “catcalled” by mostly minorities.

Men can be heard saying such terrible things such as “how are you this morning,” and “have a nice evening,” while the uppity, white liberal woman looks at them with hatred and disdain for even deigning to speak to her. After all, the men are clearly out of her social class, and she’s white, so the fact that these men even have the nerve to look at her should be considered harassment…. right?

Interestingly enough, the actress in the video seems to believe she wasn’t even looking good enough to deserve the multitude of compliments that she will miss when she hits the wall one day soon. “I want people to think I’m pretty… BUT THEY BETTER NOT TELL ME THEY THINK I’M PRETTY!”

    You have to be kidding me. I’d say 60-70% of the things said on this video were compliments, not harassment. Honestly, the last 30-40% is probably fine too. It’s not like they were saying something nasty to her. If I can say, at my job, to another co-worker that she looks good today, then why couldn’t I say it to someone beautiful on the street.

    • homasapiens

      They are compliments. They are intended to be compliments. But a woman can never be sure that the guy complimenting her won’t go much further than that– if she says ‘thanks’ he might decide she really wants him. If she doesn’t smile he might decide she’s a bitch/whore/slut/too ugly to even rape.
      Who needs the stress? Not you, not me.

        I’m hearing you but that will never happen in Europa or Asia . They chose that poor neighborhood in NY and are being opportunistic about it , Besides ,me as a straight guy …She is not all that . Black guys find her atractive …that’s cool .

        • homasapiens

          “I’m hearing you but…”
          Have you ever noticed the way “but” in a sentence turns the first half of the sentence into a lie?
          But let me ask you; what, exactly, did you hear me say? What did you understand?

          BTW, I have been catcalled in Paris, Madrid, Milan, Rome, Zurich, Munich, Hong Kong, and Tokyo.

            Don’t flatter you self to much cup cake . Prove it that you are that good looking . I’m daring you !

          • homasapiens

            Well, you’re the one who said that will never happen in those romantic places. I just proved you wrong.

            LOL, it seems that you figure that any woman who meets your personal standards of looks deserves your special attention. Those lucky girls!

            Conversely, any woman who does not meet your criteria is lying if she talks about being catcalled.

            My looks, and this woman’s looks, have nothing to do with men making the choice to misbehave.

          Nice elitism/ ethnocentrism, asshole.

      • NoLongerJustAGuest

        I saw a guy and assumed he might rape me. Let’s make that illegal. Saying hi = rape.
        I live in Louisiana. It’s rude not to say hi, smile, or at least nod at someone when you pass by them.

        • homasapiens

          1) you have utterly misinterpreted me. Can I assume you merely didn’t actually read all of my words?

          2) I’ve spent time in Baton Rouge, and you are quite right– nodding and smiling is what I experienced most of all. Except for the couple of times when some guy would follow me determined to make me love him. That part wasn’t a nod and a hello.

          • NoLongerJustAGuest

            1) Probably.

            2) We call that stalking. But a guy sitting on the sidewalk saying “hey beautiful!”…

          • homasapiens

            Well, that’s the problem. it starts with “hey beautiful!” But that is not a nod and a hello, by a long stretch. And we never know if it’s the start of stalking.
            For most women it’s a moment when she has to think twice– is that all? Or is he going to get up and follow me now? Am I going to have to run?
            The woman in the video attracted the attention of roughly ten men per hour– simply because she was female. Absolutely no other reason.

            You as a man, might be nodded and hello’ed at. “‘sup.”

            But you will never hear “hey beautiful!” followed by “Want a beer?” followed by “What the fuck is wrong with you, I’m trying to be nice, can’t you even be nice?” Followed by FUCK YOU BITCH WHORE IMMA SLAP YOU DOWN.”

            All this from someone she’s never ever seen before. Who is twice her size. And she’s simply trying to go to work.
            Next guy says “Hey beautiful” she’s going to have a moment of panic. after awhile it all adds up.

            Ask your lady friends if they or their female friends have ever experienced this. But promise me– you’ll actually listen to their answers.

          • NoLongerJustAGuest

            Don’t get me wrong. “Catcalling” and stuff is disrespectful, and not the actions of a man by my definition. I’m just saying you can’t legislate that.

          • homasapiens

            Indeed, we already agreed it wasn’t going to be legislated.

            But really– those aren’t men? Men is exactly what they are. Men with a different set of values than you and I hold. Men who need to hear from YOU that there is a better way to behave.

    • Diane

      It is not a compliment.

      “Hey baby? Hey beautiful? How are you sweetheart?” are mild sugar-coated comments on my body from a stranger, and that’s not okay with me. You think it’s a compliment, but I’m telling you as the receiving end that it’s downright creepy. I only want to hear that from my boyfriend, husband, or father. Are you any of those?

      Sure, you can tell your co-worker she looks good because you personally know her and get to chat with her on a daily basis. You know she’s a person But to blatantly scream to a woman on the street just because you think so, without considering that she’s a person who doesn’t want to talk to you, is harassment.

  • i really didn’t see much harassment…i saw a lot of compliments and blessings..eh. whining feminist.

      • most people don’t walk the streets for 10 hours to hear all of that. sorry but if she has shown the WORST of her experience from 10 hours of walking…i really didn’t see anything that alarming. i am a chick & ginger…ive heard it all.

  • Mario Rolon

    Since when is talking to someone on the street considered harassment? These communist liberals won’t be happy until the whole country is a supermax prison.

    • SAM ADAMS

      The one silver lining to mass immigration is that liberal women can’t compete with a Latin woman’s sex appeal and attitude! Feminist liberal women are about to become treated like they have Ebola! Replaced like their union brother’s and sisters by Latin immigrants! In typical liberal fashion they will be leading the charge for their own obsolescence! Let me paraphrase that Alinsky quote; demonstrate for it on Saturday, rejoice for winning the battle on Sunday, shot for your participation on Monday!

      • Blake Grubb

        well that’s a disgusting thought

        i like my pretty white girls but hey you want cottage cheese be my guest take them all

        • SAM ADAMS

          Your pretty white girls think you are a disgusting pig! I guess you’ll always have “ROSEY” and her five sisters!

    • Rusty Longwood

      It’s only harassment if the woman isn’t into you. And you can’t know she isn’t into you unless you try talking to her.

    • E C

      Mario,

      Ever be following a conversation on facebook, and every time there’s a new comment your phone buzzes? And there’s a lot of people commenting, so your phone keeps buzzing and buzzing and buzzing and never stops and you eventually get annoyed and mute notifications?

      That’s what street harassment is. Except you have to just endure your phone buzzing endlessly.

      On an individual level, what each person is doing isn’t necessarily that bad.

      But from the woman’s point of view, her ten minute walk to work will have ten different people trying to draw her attention and get a response out of her. It’s annoying and tiresome, and it happens every single time she walks out her front door.

      • Jim

        Some of them were rude, and I understand that it was annoying, but I can’t say that any of that constituted harassment. Some of it was creepy, yeah, but not harassment. Where was the pressure or intimidation that would make it harassment? Should we adjust the definition of harassment so it can include random compliments or other acts of annoyance? If that’s the case, then the jokes that cashiers here at the register would have to stop. Along with the questions every employee in the casino industry hears every day.

        Were some of them rude? Yeah, but not all. And for 10 hours, they didn’t really get all that much usable footage. I mean, 10 hours of walking, and they only got a minute and fifty-six seconds, and that’s total video time, so really it was more like a minute and thirty-one seconds. That represents 0.2% of her time walking that day. So if that’s the average, than that ten minute walk you mentioned would have on average 1.2 seconds of people trying to get her attention.

        I’ll grant that it must get annoying, but you can’t make being annoying illegal, although I’m sure there are some older siblings that really really wish you could. Right now I can’t help but look at this as if it’s a pair of kids in the back seat of a car with one of them whining “He’s touching me!!” What do most parents do in that situation? I know that my little brother never got in any real trouble for it, and why should he?

        • Tori Haskins

          Did you miss the fact that one guy followed her for five minutes straight? Rude, annoying, and creepy don’t even begin to cover it. Speaking as a female who has been followed over the course of an hour by the same man before, you can’t know what it’s like unless you’ve been in our shoes. And comparing it to siblings? Yeah, siblings who might possibly try and rape you, kidnap you, or kill you. The hilarious part of all of this is all of the comments made by men who have most likely never been harassed in that way before who suddenly consider themselves to be experts in the subject.

          • SouthOhioGipper

            Well we sure as hell aren’t going to just take a woman’s word for it.

          • Gaz

            She is rude and strange herself mate. She doesn’t speak to, look at or in any way acknowledge anybody who speaks to her. Even if they said something as innocent as hello. Only in ridiculously wealthy countries, could saying hello be viewed as harassment.

      • Kurt Bond

        Oh my gawd! I’m so hot that all these Plebian men saying,” Whats up?” to me offends my class and stature. Then NYC isn’t where you should live. Serious DUH!

    • Kaldari

      Whether you call it harassment, cat-calling, or something else, it’s still a problem because it makes women feel unsafe when walking down the street. Plus it’s annoying and demeaning. No one wants to hear “Hey baby!” every 5 minutes just because they’re walking down the sidewalk.

  • Rob Liz

    The hilarious part about this video is that the model is a narcissist anyway. Her Youtube page is full of her doing look at me Tai Chi or role playing for the camera to show off her ‘acting’ talents. Granted her martial arts skill would help her if this experiment went wrong but the hypocrisy is pretty apparent. This girl actually does want to be noticed.

    • homasapiens

      If you were to publish a series of Tai Chi videos, could be confident that the viewers would only judge you for your skills, for better or worse. Only women get accused of vanity when they share videos that are actually about doing something.

      • Dan

        Or she actually is vain because her entire demeanor screams vanity and narcissism. You know because generalizations in the context of being able to see individual vanity is quite silly. Feigned outrage of the self important

        • homasapiens

          Nope. She’s just doing something in a video.

  • Jacob Champion

    As a man, no one talks to me on the street unless they want money, or are a cop. Attractive Women in the D.C. area, is your experience similar to the video? Is this an everywhere thing, or just a New York thing? I did see it one night in Clarendon, but the guy doing it was from New York.

    • Mark Wharton

      This was from 10 hours of footage and thats the best they could get….

      • Avatar

        I know….and they chose the poor neighborhood where people are not that educated so they could shame men ….To get the approval of the White Knights and the Feminists in the media . Pathetic and sexists . Opportunistic and Poor taste .

    • homasapiens

      This is an everywhere thing. What’s scary is that there’s always the chance that the caller might turn violent– Although we can be sure that most men won’t, women have no way of knowing which guy might. Not only is there an assumption that we all have the right to catcall– men say that women have the same right– but there seems to be a growing attitude that all women MUST acknowledge the caller and his compliment. Or else, she’s a bitch/whore/slut/too ugly to even rape. The potential for flash anger is terrifying.

      Not in the D.C. area – repping Calgary, Alberta over here..

      But, yes, I can confirm that in my experience this happens every damn day. On an average day, it’s mostly the “mostly harmless” “hello”, “hey girl!” “damn!” type of comments that, while annoying and incredibly exhausting to deal with every time you leave the apartment, are fairly easy to brush off… but once in a while things get REALLY creepy.

      I, personally, have experienced the following:

      – Walking home from work wearing an extremely modest skirt suit showing zero cleavage (not that it’s OK regardless of what I was wearing): “Holy shit! Are those things real!” *ignore* “Hey! I’m talking to you!” *ignore* “Come on, bring those puppies a little closer!” *middle finger* “Fuckin stuck up cunt!”

      – Walking across the street on my way to lunch (again, dressed modestly for work) a group of drunk and/or high lowlifes were walking past and one reached out and grabbed my waist. I slapped his hand away and told him to fuck off and they all just laughed.

      – Walking home from work, in office-appropriate attire, a guy stops me and asks for directions. I tell him where he needs to go, which happens to be the same way I am going for one block, before he needs to turn the opposite way I am turning. Think nothing of it and make friendly chit chat for that one block and then say “nice meeting you, I hop you enjoy Calgary!” and turn to walk toward my place… but he turns along with me and keeps walking beside me. I told him he was going the wrong way and he laughed and said “yeah, I’m not lost, I just wanted to talk to you”. I was like “um, ok, well I’m on my way home and have things to do so…..” He ignores that and starts asking how old I am, if I’m single, etc, etc. I tell him “look, I’m not interested can you please stop following me?” He then proceeds to tell me not to be so stuck up and “you should be flattered!” I said I wasn’t and asked him politely once again to please leave me alone. He continued to follow me and try to chat me up. Finally I told him if he didn’t fuck off this instant I’d be phoning my brother, who lives with me and is only a few blocks away. It made me cringe because nothing makes you feel more helpless as a woman than having to threaten bringing the wrath of another man into the equation for someone to leave you alone.

      – Working on a construction site one summer, mostly had no problems except for just one creep on the site who was seriously awful (the rest of the almost 200 guys on site were either really fun to work with or I never interacted with). Well, this guy would make really lewd comments about my breasts pretty much every time I’d walk by him and I’d try to just ignore it. But then one day, I was bringing a bunch of materials out to the disposal bin and he was up on the second level (no outside walls yet) so he probably figured I couldn’t hear him (either that or he actually thought it would be funny if I heard it) and he starts making disgusting comments asking the other guys what he thinks I’d be like in the sack, do you think her tits are real, etc. The guys he was talking to were kinda like “yeah, they’re nice. bla bla bla” but they didn’t seem to be too interested in the conversation and then all the sudden, Creepy McCreeperstein says, loudly, “Dunno about you guys, but I’d rape the fuck outta her” and started making sqeauling sounds. I was fucking HORRIFIED!! I yelled up to him “I can hear you, you fucking creep!” He just laughed, I guess assuming I wouldn’t or couldn’t do anything about it. Well, it just so happens my brother was the superintendent on the job for our company, so I went straight to him and told him what just happened. He was livid and went straight to the GC on site. Fucker was fired instantly.

      – Walking home around midnight from my job serving at a pub, I stopped in at the liquor store to grab a bottle of wine. Creepy crackhead blocked the door way as I tried to walk in. I told him to move and he said “only if you kiss me”. I said “Move. Now. Or I will fucking hurt you”. Thank god he decided against continuing the confrontation and did move, muttering “I was just kidding around, geez!”

      Those are only a few of the more disturbing instances, but seriously, every single day men make comments ranging from mildly annoying to extremely lewd and disturbing, even threatening.

      • Derek Mitchell

        This still doesn’t mean men are all the same and there needs to be a stifling law for freedom of expression.

        • Boomz4

          I never said there should be, and I fundamentally disagree with the idea of creating a law like that, as it is simply not something that could feasibly be enforced, fairly or otherwise.

          Believing that something is wrong and that we as a society need to aspire for change to create a more comfortable space for people doesn’t automatically translate into wanting to dictate change via legislation. I’d like to know who these purported feminist groups are that are supposedly seeking such a law?

          • Disco Biscuits

            Wow. How long have you lived in the city? As a man, if I responded to someone like that trying to con me out of my money, I would expect to be dragged into the alley and mugged and have the crap kicked out of me.

            You really need to develop people skills or you are going to have a hard time. The world was not created for you.

            These people prey on easy victims, and many times, that’s what the “cat-calling” is about. And part of it is to see how uptight you are. Learn to “play the game” and you can avoid a lot of potentially “bad” confrontation.

        • Boomz4

          I also never said I think all men are the same. I know most are not. Two of my three closest friends are men. I have three brothers. And, as I mentioned in my post, among the almost 200 men on the jobsite I was on when I experienced the worst harassment that I shared here, only one man caused problems for me and the rest were great to work with.

    • rudeawakeningxxx

      Not a chick, but this happens all the time in any urban environment.

      Sure. But is it every time you leave the house?

      • Disco Biscuits

        Every time I walked through the city smoking a cigarette. And yes, I always get panhandled, too.

        I’m sorry for you if you give strangers the power to control your emotions. You, and only you, are responsible for your emotions.

        Are you not in control of your emotions? How about your thoughts and actions?

        • CMLD3

          Well said.

  • Julie Hickman-Rincon

    I could see it being more of a harassment if they were being crude but mostly the comments and stuff well I’d probably end up ignoring or over time just falling on deaf ears. But 2 things did seem wrong. 1. The $1000 comment was pretty much saying she was a high class hooker. 2. The guy following her for 5 minutes would have totally freaked me out.

    • Stephanie Iglesias

      The guy walking next to her, just said, “Good morning. Have a good day. God bless.” And then awkwardly had to keep walking next to her after having said goodbye. I’m pretty sure he just had to keep going the same direction as her to get to where he was going. Even with the image blurred you can clearly tell he wasn’t staring over at her or checking her out. Maybe he was even thinking of her safety. Walking with her so other guys wouldn’t approach her.

  • Devin

    Anyone saying that she’s an “uppity white liberal” has obviously never been harassed on the street. The only reason they’re talking to her is because of her body, as a woman I know that feeling. It’s invasive and it’s extremely uncomfortable because it’s sexual objectification. It makes you feel unsafe. I’ve been harassed on the street, several times a week even. I’ve had people switch trains to try to follow me home. So what am I supposed to do? Find a man to make me feel safe? No! This is about educating people to know that this is NOT okay so that everyone can get from place to place without worrying if the next street harasser is going to be violent.

    • Georgie Boy

      You are missing the point here. Feminist groups have been repeatedly pushing for legislation to CRIMINALIZE “catcalling”. In other words, restrict the First Amendment, based on loose terms. “Educate” my ass! I agree that harassment is wrong, but when you give this government/police an inch, they will take a mile!

      • homasapiens

        If you can’t be educated, you might indeed end up with laws restricting you from doing that ignorant thing. One or the other, which would you prefer? (I see you resisting education at the moment)

        • Gregory Smith

          If by ‘educate’ you mean accept conformance with desired educational institution social norms then I agree. Otherwise you are just another person looking to use the force of government guns to impose your will on society. This, I will resist even if I theoretically agree with the position you are attempting to enforce.

          • homasapiens

            LOL! I know just what you mean. My friends post these facebook memes that I totally agree with. All about kindness to animals, or not hitting children, or curing cancer or whatever. But I refuse to repost them because they end with something like ” I bet 99% of you won’t share this.”

        • NoLongerJustAGuest

          This is why I don’t have much of a hope for the future. Because people like you are voting. What if legislation was passed that said women couldn’t compliment men? The thing is that this behavior doesn’t harm anyone. It might be annoying, but you can’t legislate that. If she has sprayed any of those men with mace, would she be justified? NO. Why? Because all they did was speak.

          • homasapiens

            You sure do imagine a lot of stuff that didn’t happen. But it’s simply ridiculous to then talk as if your imaginary situation is inevitable, or even possible.
            Have you seen any legislation like the one you are worried about? Do you REALLY think it would pass in popular vote?
            Really?

          • NoLongerJustAGuest

            My most sincere apologies. I was using hyperbole to draw attention to a point. Let me try again, but less fancy.

            Georgie boy said “Feminist groups have been repeatedly pushing for legislation to CRIMINALIZE “catcalling”. In other words, restrict the First Amendment, based on loose terms. “Educate” my ass!”

            to which you responded “If you can’t be educated, you might indeed end up with laws restricting you from doing that ignorant thing.”

            I interpret your response to mean that if men continue to catcall, then legislation might be used to restrict it.

            I don’t think that legislation would (or could) pass. Because it’s unconstitutional. But it’s the legislation you just said might happen.

            Note: I might be sarcastic, but I don’t intend to be hurtful toward you personally. I just want to argue.

          • homasapiens

            Gotcha. I too was being somewhat sarcastic. it’s hard to take people like Georgie Boy seriously.

          • rudeawakeningxxx

            It’ll be used to restrict it but for the sake of control, not the other narratative spoken about here.

          • NoLongerJustAGuest

            I’m unable to make sense of your words.

          • rudeawakeningxxx

            There’s a subtext that you’re not getting. So busy playing hero you can’t read through the lines.

          • NoLongerJustAGuest

            I don’t know what you are talking about. Playing hero? Are you quoting song lyrics at me?

      • Don Newcomb

        Yep, and the ones that are screaming the loudest for this legislation will be the first to cry foul when THEY are arrested for simply saying something to someone.

        • homasapiens

          What do you think they will say?

          • Georgie Boy

            What will they say? The feminist movement- and the suffragettes for that matter- was made possible because women exercised their freedom of unregulated speech to exclaim highly taboo messages. And they were met by people like you who wanted to stifle speech that didn’t align with their principles. BUT THE FIRST AMENDMENT PREVAILED! Restricting speech will be detrimental to the feminist cause.

          • homasapiens

            I fail to see how “those that are screaming loudest” would be arrested for talking about suffragette slogans.

        • homasapiens

          What do you think they will say?

    • CMLD3

      Sorry Devin, I am female and have received compliments from time to time. The woman is dressed in close fitting garments accentuating her curvaceous figure (and designed to do so i.e. attract attention to that figure) leaving not a great deal to the imagination, is complimented on her beauty and considers this to be harassment…Oh, please. Her rudeness is embarrassing and ungracious.

      • Devin

        Blaming her clothing circumvents the issue entirely. If that’s the case, how about all women wear burkas instead! How about women all dye their hair the same color and get plastic surgery so we all fit the male ideal and then maybe then we won’t be harassed. Ludicrous, right?

        What if she did respond? Would that make things better? What if that was taken as an open opportunity for the harasser to take things farther? Perhaps aggressively? She powerless to do anything except not respond unless she wants to put her safety in jeopardy. If you don’t see that, I’m sorry and you must live a safe and sheltered life.

          On the contrary Devin, I live in the real world where actions have consequences – such as the way we dress. Sorry Devin, we all have to take responsibility. I am not going to feel sorry for someone who attracts appreciative attention and then feels harassed by it. A revealing experiment was when a young pretty journalist dressed as a very old lady for a day in a city in my country – England – and was treated awfully – that was eye opening. This experiment is pathetic.

          • rudeawakeningxxx

            How would you dress that it wouldn’t invite attention or catcalls??

          • homasapiens

            You think that was appreciative attention– that says so much.

      • Boomz4

        It’s a fucking t-shirt and jeans…..

          *tight t-shirt and jeans. Just to be accurate.

          • Boomz4

            So we should all drape ourselves in baggy, unflattering clothing? No thanks.

      That’s why certain cities have concealed carry laws. Don’t agree?? Then shutup.

    Well the bottom line is the first amendment. While I don’t condone cat calling, I will never support forcing others to shut up. Sorry, this is probably a waste of time.

  • Joe Marwil

    You’re missing the point. Idiot.

  • Derek Mitchell

    Be strong or don’t go out, the world is a place where people are killed, raped, disfigured and beaten everyday, that is with all the laws we have in place. If you can’t handle that information above, then practice, exercise, train, and take classes to make you strong enough to handle that situation or move away. It isn’t only men who harass women, the constant nagging of women thinking they can tell men what place they belong in society and what is proper is not up to only them, but to the men in society as well and if your experience isn’t desirable to the effect you are seeking, then change venues, locations, cities, or countries. It is why immigrants migrate to other places, why the Vikings, Indians and others left their places to see other ones. Because the environment they were from was no longer enjoyable to exist in.

    • Devin

      This is incredibly ignorant. I’m sorry that because I’m more vulnerable to verbal abuse that’s MY problem and not the people spewing abuse? It’s not about eliminating the first amendment, it’s about teaching people that behavior is unwanted and intrusive. Yes, some comments in the video are less toxic that others, but if you don’t find harassment to be a problem I hope that you never have a daughter. I hope you never have to worry about any woman you love is going to be attacked simply because society thinks female abuse and objectification is okay.

      • Derek Mitchell

        What is incredibly ignorant is for you to think society needs to change billions of people’s response to stimulus than just living more safe. My child would be taught firearms training, self defense, and biblical discernment from and early age, so no need to worry about my children. The reason liberals worry about safety is they are lemmings refusing to defend themselves in dangerous areas of the world. You can’t just book a trip to NY city and think no one will pickpocket you, rob you or rape you. It is a nasty big city to deal with. It is the world we live in. If you go on a safari you might endanger yourself by being in the jungle, the only difference in NY is it is a concrete one. Get a grip on reality then respond back to me in a few years.

        • Devin

          Lessons cannot be taught, they have to be realized. I hope one day that one day you’ll come to terms that “liberals” are not trying to take your precious liberty. In fact it’s quite the opposite. This video is to prevent fear mongering that you refuse to believe is a threat. But keep on, keepin’ on, man. Let me know how it works out for you!

          • Derek Mitchell

            It definitely is a threat, to the 1st amendment speech of our society as we know it. If lessons cannot be taught, then why the liberal union fight for more education funds all the time instead of privatizing education and letting the free market do a better job with it just like Apple has done with the smartphone improvements over the last decade?

          • homasapiens

            What, being asked to think about someone else for a minute before you open your yap is a threat to the first amendment?

          • Derek Mitchell

            If it was being asked, it wouldn’t be termed as harassment, it would be termed as increasing awareness. They are on an agenda to reduce our overall ability to speak our mind to set precident on what can be said on topics that they want silenced. Like 2nd amendment rights and free press.

          • homasapiens

  • Nancy Baker

    1) Repeat the experiment with an attractive young man and see if he gets any “harrassment”. 2) Repeat the experiment with a more average-looking female. This girl is fairly attractive. Find someone who is a little plainer and see if she gets similar responses. Otherwise, all you are doing is asking for donations to somehow stop pretty girls from being hit on. Really?

    • Boomz4

      I’m a fairly average 28 year old woman and in my grand total of 30 minutes of walking back and forth to work each day I get catcalled, told to smile, etc at LEAST once. Every day. It’s f*cking exhausting.

    It is only harassment if you tell someone to stop and you don’t. You can not call a one liner, which isn’t vulgar, harassment, if they stop when you don’t respond.

    So a girl and a guy with a camera is an organization now? LOL
    Give me a phooking break. Donate to these twerps to stop street
    harassment? Really? GTFO, how do these morons think they are going to
    stop guys like this from being guys like this? Are they are going to use
    the funds to force them into reeducation camps? I will donate $100 to
    the girl in the video, but she will have to earn it. lol

    • homasapiens

      “You can not call a one liner, which isn’t vulgar, harassment, if they stop when you don’t respond.” Thank you, Brian, this is the first intelligent rebuttal in this entire comments section.

      The problem is, though, that few seconds of waiting while he decides not to escalate– kind of scary. And when it happens over and over and over and over.. that’s a lot of few seconds of suppressed panic. That’s what adds up. Women can never be sure that the guy won’t follow her for 5 minutes, as one man does, or more then that.

      And honestly? If this woman were black she would have heard worse.

  • Adderly Arias

    Agreed

  • Jtrace

    It’s also ok for gay guys to starting calling other guys sexy when they walk by. “Hey man nice ass!”

  • Todd

    It is super creepy where a couple of times this woman is FOLLOWED by a guy for several minutes besides her. Seriously, if you don’t think that is creepy, obnoxious behaviour that would creep anyone out (not just a woman), something is wrong with you.

  • taojammz

    C’mon, stop hiding behind linguistics… You reading this are predominately Libertarians, and as such are hard core advocates of personal liberty… individuality; but judging from the majority of comments you seem to be unable to recognize that personal right for an attractive woman, with whom you are not acquainted, and are not friends; the personal liberty to be free from random comments, of any sort, from men of unknown repute or intent? I know that you all believe in private property, but what of personal space as private property on a public venue? Simply being out of doors does not constitute a solicitation for your opinion about anything. If you care about your own personal freedom, ethics requires you allow that privilege to all. Hypocrisy is harder to recognize when it is your own…
    That is the gist of the video, and refusal to recognize that is, at best, disingenueous.

    • Derek Mitchell

      Tell that to street vendors and fragrance counter girls.

  • phantasm

    I saw some harrassment- like the “hey Baby” comment- but many were just trying to say Hi. All she had to do is say Hi back or I don’t want to talk to some of the guys- they would have backed off. This is typical overreaction and ridiculousness.

    Opportunistic ,Racists ,Sexists video . The guy who was shooting is a Mangina opportunist. 100% . Women in power are just as aggressive as men are . Its proven fact. They were shooting in poor NY neighborhood . Its mostly cultural .Racists and disgusting video . Shaming Men not always works cup cakes . Because of attitudes like this there are so many MGTOW Men out there who don’t trust women anymore . If the guy is rich and good looking women don’t mind ,right ? Hypocrites !

    What scares me is their “solution” to ending harassment. Are they pushing to make it illegal? Knowing the state, they will go to the opposite extreme and if you so much as look at a woman the wrong way, she can call the police on you for “harassment.”

    I think many of those guys should have just kept their comments to themselves; However, it would be wrong to throw them in a cage or fine them because they said, “hi, how are you?”

    After all, she is in public. Do people not have the right to interact with others freely? Do we want to restrict this over the barrel of a gun?

    • homasapiens

      Calm down, it’s an attempt to show you what a woman experiences in her daily life. All you have to do is listen. No action is necessary. And maybe, refrain from harassing women yourself– of course you never do, right.

      Not one of those guys will ever be thrown in a cage for saying hello how are you. The state will never go to that opposite extreme you are so terrified of.

      as far as “barrel of a gun” goes, I am astonished at how many men around the internets have advised that women learn to shoot guns. It’s as if they want to encourage women to murder rude men. I don’t understand that one.

      • dooglio

        If you pass a law against “harassment”, it is necessarily a violent solution, Homa. This is a very bad slippery slope the state is on. Under every law is a gun. I have every right to be concerned where this is leading.

        On the one hand I feel for her–everyone wants to be left alone. On the other hand, she is in public, and stuffing cotton in the mouths of others isn’t the answer.

        And by the way, thanks for the personal attack, insinuating that I am one of the ones making her life hard. That I am rude enough to catcall a total stranger.

        • homasapiens

          Nobody will ever pass a law against harassment– with or without the scare quotes. These people are not advocating for a law against harassment.

          On the other hand, I have without a doubt seen many men advise that women carry guns.

          • KStacey

            You’re kidding right? We already have thought crimes on the books. How on earth can you possibly believe “nobody will ever pass a law against harassment”?

            We do?

          • KStacey

            Victim #1, straight white male – Assaulted while walking down the street. Broken arm, black eye, scared to death. Perpetrator is caught and given a year in prison.

            Victim #2, gay black male – A victim of an identical assault, suffering the same injuries. Perpetrator is caught and allegations of being racist and/or homophobic are made against him. He is given 10 years in prison.

            If locking somebody in a cage for an extra nine years over their thoughts, feelings or beliefs is not persecuting thought crime, what is it?

          • homasapiens

            LOL! Nope. In both of your (hypothetical) cases the perp is convicted on his actions. It’s not illegal to think homophobic thoughts.

          • KStacey

            Same actions, same injuries. The ONLY difference is the perceived ‘intent’. You can only hope that someday your thoughts do not become illegal as well. Or that there is at least somebody left to stick up for you.

          • homasapiens

            Different judges, different juries, different lawyers, different arguments, different days.

            “On the other hand, I have without a doubt seen many men advise that women carry guns.”

            Certainly I have no problem with women being armed to protect themselves from men who decide to become aggressive and violent. But I certainly no one is advocating violence by the women against cat calling.

            *sigh* what a world.

          • homasapiens

            Huh. Evidently you have decided to proceed on a belief that something sneaky is going on, and that one video trying to demonstrate a problem means hidden legislation is in the works.

            At the same time you are willing to trust pissed off, scared women, to know when not to shoot that gun?
            Come on, now.

            Who else do we trust? Who else will save a woman from rape? When seconds count, police are minutes away.

            And as we can see from Ferguson and NYC, that the police don’t know when and when not to shoot a gun or strangle someone.

    it is clear that catcalling is a primitive trait, only not to people that do it i see, giving a compliment..on the street.. to someone you don’t know personally is not actually a compliment, unless that person is doing something to attract attention to herself and is seeking compliments from strangers, ex. holding a sign that requires passers to comment on it, or wearing a very big funny hat, although i believe that wouldnt necessary provoke peoples reactions other than staring, by yelling something at a girl who’s on the street, going where she’s going you’re not going to be able to fuck her..if you are that means she’s a skank or fairly retarded, and it makes you look like a moron, unless you’re surrounded by fellow apes that find it also amusing, and also had never had sex in their lives, not only is it harassment but it is sexual segregation, which leads to pretty girls either becoming sluts, lesbians or just ashamed of the human race. If it’s not hitting on girls then why do you do it? if it is then why aren’t you succeeding?
