I was in the car today imagining I was onstage at American Idol, when the song ended and I came back to reality I heard part of a conversation the DJ was having with his co-host regarding men and women. The question was Cat-calling is it disrespectful or is it flattery? I guess it depends on the the person on the receiving end.
From a woman’s point of view( my point of view) I find it disrespectful and this is just my opinion. I can’t say I feel this way because I am older, If I think back 20 years when I was in my early 20’s I still didn’t like it. I always felt cheap when guys yelled at me like that, maybe it is because of the way they yelled and the things that they said. I think there is a more respectful way to approach a women if you think she looks good. One guy said “if I holla at a woman it just shows I appreciate the work she put in to look this good, and there is nothing better than a beautiful women in the morning.”
Some guys think that is what women want, we want them to notice that we put a lot of work into looking good and if they shout at us when we pass by we would appreciate that. And some guys think as long as they keep it clean and dont say anything derogatory then it’s fine. Now there are some women who called in and said they thought is was was disrespectful but as they got older now they kinda like it, because it makes them feel like they still got it.
I think looking at a women as she passes by can be more respectful then shouting rude comments. I am not saying all cat calling is rude, some guys just say “good morning beautiful” or “have a nice day” but the other comments about how your body looks or what they would like to do to you is taking it to far.
So now I am bringing it to my readers what do you think. I want to hear from the ladies and the men.
