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 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.

Harassment is defined as "aggressive pressure or intimidation"
Legally, an incident doesn't rise to the level of harassment until the victim asks or signals that they want to be left alone and the perpetrator doesn't stop.

Two things. That is one ugly dude and they only show a couple of minutes so how do we know no one catcalled that mannish individual?

From my experience, i' d have to conclude that the behavior in your video has more to do with social stigma than people being well mannered.
