Interesting. I wonder if the crimes of these "refugees" was what prompted this. Being able to arrest hem for that would be better than waiting till there was an actual assault.


Doubt it.

This has been a long standing issue. Even in the USA.

“The force defines misogyny hate crime as: "Incidents against women that are motivated by an attitude of a man towards a woman and includes behavior(sic) targeted towards a woman by men simply because they are a woman."

...that includes even showing the slightest bit of interest, buying a woman a drink, or smiling at a woman you think is cute.

I am fully expecting the moronic snowflake culture warriors to ban flirting next. seriously..look at that wording. please tell me that is a butcher job of the actual wording and the real wording is extremely offensive and meant to be and not just a whistle and a "oh dayum" exclamation.

I wonder what do most women consider to be enough to say it's harrassment. I remember seeing a video of a woman being filmed walking around in the city and they were saying men going "hello" or "you're pretty" was cat-calling and harrassment.

I don't know about other women but I thinks it's very nice if a man says hello, compliments me or holds open a door. Recently I've seen women getting angry about the door holding thing too.....

Well, honestly, there is a point where it gets ridiculous. The problem is that I can see such a law getting out of hand to the point to where men are getting in trouble just for looking at a woman the wrong way. I know that most women are not like that but not everyone is the same and just being female doesn't make someone innocent. Some women are crazy just like some men are.

Give it some time and they'll regret putting that ban on whistling and cat-calling.

Is that a real quote?

on a similar note I remember some feminist on facebook one day thanking her boobs for getting her out of a ticket.

Cat calling is silly though. Being from a not big city in the midwest I actually thought cat calling was just something they did in the cartoons for a long time. I never thought any self respecting person would do that. It actually made no sense to me, how was cat calling going to pan out. Does it actually work? do you want a woman who is attracted by cat calling?
Wouldn't a normal person go introduce themselves?

A hate crime is a stretch. And that wording is atrocious. Any unwanted behavior from the opposite sex could be considered.
Going to have to segregate bars and clubs with wording like that.

Well some of them think "introducing yourself" is harassment as well.

well as i said earlier i think its to just give guys a reality check.

its more of the thought that i think will get guys to rethink their actions.

i think that if a woman asks a man who is talking sh!t to her in public to stop and he persists or maybe if its a route she takes all the time and its the same guy or group of men harassing her she can take action. i think for cases like those it will be examples made of the man to show there are repercussions for his actions and disrespective behavior.


not a bad thing imo

learn how to act and treat people right.

Yeah it is a quote from her original article, but she changed it afterwards to "One perk of older age? Fewer catcalls".

I think you have it right, Lady. The middle eastern horny apes that lack self control have been harassing women verbally and physically. Of course, it's just part of their so-called 'culture' so that excuses it. This may help the police check some of this before things go too far.


Seems the most likely reasoning behind this. Normally, I'd call it a bit whiny, but considering some of the reports I have read, this seems like a good idea.

To some extent, but not to the point a law needed to be passed. With the influx of all these fighting age men, and the harassment and worse of women in so many countries, I suspect a connection.

Well they didn't have to go as far as calling it a "hate crime", that will be with intent to cause harm, tagging it a sexual harassment issue, would have been just fine.


Exactly what I thought.

I've had it done to me on one occasion in a large city, (NYC) and I didn't feel 'hated', but I did feel like it was a little nasty. One whistle, okay, but it went on too long. I was uncomfortable, and wanted to get home to my small southern town where people are civilized! Lol.

Really have a problem with this:


It means abuse or harassment which might not be a crime can be reported to and investigated by the police, and support for the victim put in place.


So there is an expansion of legal terms in this case? Why? Would I be investigated for saying, truthfully, "You have beautiful legs"? Could it be used in this manner?

I've personally experienced this in a bad way with some women. While ago, one lady gave me a cold stare with "uh, no you go in first" reply for doing that at the library one time when I held the door open. My only assumption was she had gotten too into that strong independent woman who needs no help mindset. She did fashion a distinctive colorful hair like most feminists do. I started to parallel the connection of aposematism found in nature and the bright colors of these feminists, a warning signal to stay far if you don't want to get in trouble.

The paradox is the term: rape whistle.

Neither male nor female should need one to exist.
