The looks and responses he receives from both men and women are similar to the harassment the original woman received in her video.
Unfortunately, it seems like no one is safe from harassment on the streets, especially in a crowded city.


Fact is no one is safe from harassment in a city , feminists would love to claim how only females are being harassed and oppressed but this video proves it wrong . Either that or "Men should not take is as harassment, only women should"

Not exactly surprised. As someone who is in New York often I know this happens to both men and women.

Fact:
If you are walking in ANY city, you will get some degree of attention. even at work, doesn't matter, it happens to me as a guy, (like i don't notice women looking at my crotch, you are not as subtle as you think, all guys notice it) and it happens to women as well, and in the greater scheme of things, it's probably nicer than grinding up against someone in a disco while drunk.

Fact 2:
it's harassment if the other person is ugly, but if the other person is attractive it's flirting.

I have a 10 hour video of me being harassed in NYC. I'd post it but not sure if everyone will sit around for that long.

Our society knows no shame anymore.

We have become so sexualized that even same sex harassment (which used to be taboo)
is considered ok in our world.
Just as women sexually harassing men used to be taboo.
At least we had some taboo's to protect people,
even though the boorish and nasty men would openly harass women.

Some will say it is a sign of openness and acceptance,
but it is an acceptance of trashy women and
an acceptance of trashy men
being openly rude and disgusting and thinking it is ok to do.

No wonder the Islamic State thinks we are a part of the Great Satan.

Thank you american popular culture for teaching us
that sexually harassing someone on the street and in public is acceptable public behavior.

Before any of you jump on me, no it is not acceptable in private either.

I blame our media for sexualizing everything
in an attempt to sell their movies, tv shows, and products in between,
we have truly become a nasty whoreish bunch
who behave like pigs in public when we see a sexually attractive person in public.

I love how it is "feminists just want to complain about being victimized" instead of "holy crap, this happens to both genders, and this is not okay for anybody".

I'd also question if there was a difference in aggressiveness? The girl from the original got catcalled multiple times by several of the same people, had her path partially blocked a few times, and even had one dude follow her around for a little while.

Did this happen to the guy? Because if it didn't, the level of harassment is nothing close to similar, and that should be very clear to any reasonably minded human being.

And, again, I'd like to point out how this is a case of "rah rah feminists rah rah" instead of pointing out how this really just isn't cool to be happening to anybody, and it's creepy that anybody regardless of gender is catcalling strangers.

You think people walked around with horse blinders in previous generations?

I don't see people complementing others as harassment myself. It used to be something you did to make the other person feel good. So when did society start getting so negative about complements?

Right around when everyone started getting participation trophies.

No, men harassed women openly in the past, which was awful. However, it was not considered acceptable behavior.

Today it is considered acceptable behavior to openly say sexual things and sexual innuendos to a perfect stranger of either sex, by either sex.

It is one thing to appreciate beauty,
to have sexual feelings toward an attractive person,
it is another to behave openly and in public like a horny toad
when one sees an attractive person
and worse yet to act upon ones sexual thoughts in a whorish manner
by verbally harassing the person.


I am certain that throughout the ages people found attractive people sexually desirable,
however, truly civilized people keep those thoughts to themselves
in deference to those around them and in order not to offend or harass others.

It is a sad day that we have reverted
to a bunch of animals who think it is ok
to verbally hump anything in sight that attracts you.


The behavior exhibited in the videos, for the most part are not compliments,
they are sexual in nature and as such,
embarrassing to the person and
make the person saying/doing these things look like people who only care about their genitals.

This sort of behavior on the street was always considered offensive,
if you personally find this kind of behavior acceptable
and think it is a compliment
well I strongly disagree

A compliment is not given on the street to a stranger
a compliment is given to a person you know
it is not given as you walk by someome
it is given sincerely as you genuinely talk to someone you like and know.

It is rude, boorish and can be frightening
to have someone you don't know just accost you with a hit and run "compliment"


I lived in Chicago, during the "bloom of my youth"
and it used to scare me horribly when men or especially groups of men
would pay me those sorts of "compliments"
One time I was so afraid of the people doing the "compliments"
I jumped on the wrong bus and was late for work trying to get
away from their "compliments".

Wait a minute here. People shouting out compliments is harassment?

I didn't see a single sign of harassment, just a guy in a semi tight shirt showing off his muscles.

What do you think is going to happen. Its no different that a female wearing a low cut top and getting whistled at.

Harassment is something that makes you feel uncomfortable and or creates fear. This is just a bunch of compliments as far as i am concerned.

I am sure it went in both directions, then as now.

Okay so people are sexually attracted to others. Really?

We all wish we were that good looking.

I'd like to see them do this with a disheveled "homeless" person and see how much "harassment" they get.

Or someone drunk.

Great. Now I don't have to type that all out. Perfectly said.

A couple of the examples where a bit out of line, yes.
But whistling, or just smiling and enjoying a nice view?

We are doomed.

Yeah, don't compliment someone on their looks. It will upset the person you didn't compliment.

my only question is: was he wearing horse shoes or something? because the "clop clop" noise he makes when walking was very harassing to my ears.

Yes! Finally some thing to shut the feminists up!

I'm all for equal treatment. But this just shows how bad feminists blinders are.

They are blind to both sides of the cat call aurguement.

If a stranger passes by me and says "I love your Dress!". I take it as a compliment.

If a stranger passes by me and says "Ayyy gurl lemme get in dem panties damn gurl dem legs go on fo DAAAYS", that's harassment.

I love to be complimented by strangers. It brightens my day.

But there is a line between compliments and harassment. This guy was harassed, the woman in the contrasting video was also harassed. People get harassed. It happens. Verbal harassment to me is nothing more than an annoyance. People can catcall me all day and it wouldn't really bother me beyond the few seconds I hear it.

I think people have become FAR too "Sensitive" these days. Someone says something you don't like and suddenly your little world comes crashing down on you. People say rude stuff. Get over it.

I love your dress! You know where it would look even better?

Uh, well...first of all...I didn't see 30 incidents of harassment. So we're just supposed to believe them that it happened?

Second of all...ironically, it was MOSTLY men doing the catcalling.
