    Read this article, kind of confused about the whole cat call thing. I did it as a kid. I was recently on the lower East Side in NY and I saw multiple occasions of Hispanic males being really relentless with the hipster girls.....Seemed almost like abuse. The girls were not into it, at least they didn't seem to be...



    Does it bother you when guys whistle at you? Do you like it...Please share :)

    An Argentinian mayor is under fire after saying all women who claim they don't like cat-calls and wolf whistles are lying.
    Women are frequently taunted with sexist remarks as they walk around the streets of Buenos Aires.
    Recently, a survey by International Anti-Street Harassment Week found that 60 per cent of women in Buenos Aires find cat-calls intimidating.
    However, responding to the survey, Mauricio Macri, the mayor of city, said compliments are 'nice' even if they are rude and he admitted he even does it himself.

    He said: 'Basically, all women like to be told compliments.
    'Even though you'll say something rude, like "What a cute a** you have", but it's all good.
    'There is nothing more beautiful than the beauty of women, right? It's almost the reason that men
    breathe.'

    However, not everyone agreed with the mayor's remarks and hundreds of people took to Twitter to criticise the public figure.
    A couple of days later he was forced to make a public apology after his daughter joined the hundreds of women reacting to his interview.

    He wrote: 'One of my daughters called me and challenged me on the topic of compliments. I apologise to those offended.'

    If they aren't rude or obscene about it and they don't cross a physical boundary(like getting in your face or making you stop in the path in which you are walking) then I don't mind it.

    That's cool. I mean a decent guy I guess does it in fun, as a compliment

    These dudes in alphabet city were downright cray cray... "Hey baby, I'd bust that ass out. Man I'd tear that shit up. Come here...hey baby"
