Hey Shit For Brains Cat-caller Get Some Perspective

4개월 전


“Noooo! Nooo, at me??!! My Daddy didn't buy my car.” A Group of men shout at me in the midst of traffic! Opening their windows, shouting more profanities and zapping me from any angle they can.

All because I shook my head in disapproval at their vulgar attempts to get my attention.
Everyone is staring at me. I remain calm. I have a little baby sleeping in the back seat, so I choose not to go gangster on them. I suffer from serious road rage in general, so I try hard to bite my tongue. Yet they continue to harass me. I patiently await the glow of the green light so I can make my escape.

Generally, I'm someone who doesn't really care to write about touchy-feely topics. Neither am I a hardcore feminist (I am pro being an Independent woman though). But after going through yet another cat calling experience, where I was actually ridiculed in traffic, I feel I need to get some things off my chest to about 85% of the male population in Cape Town, and probably the world. As I’m I'm sure this applies to most women in every corner of this earth.

We Try To Be Heroes and Not Victims But Woman Can’t Win With Cat Callers

What’s the correct way to respond to Cat Callers?

If we ignore, we are arrogant and think we are better than them. And are seen as snobbish somehow look down on them.

If we show our annoyance or displeasure, we are all of a sudden rejecting their interest in them or and again think we better than them.

If we yell back and tell them to sod off, we are vulgar and poor examples of women.

So ultimately if we want to come out of the situation without any bad blood, we have to act polite and smile and pretend that their creepy behaviour does not want us to throw up a bit in mouths.

It’s just coincidental if you think you ugly. We don't care how you look. You are being disrespectful and are harassing us. Check Yourself, sir!

Don’t Make Women The Victims Of Your Insecurity

Your Ego is so quickly bruised, you can’t see straight. Now I’m not saying you were short-changed and got the little lollipop when God was handing out candy. But whatever your reasons for not feeling like you are a whole person please don’t try and make yourself feel better by attacking innocent woman ( or men for that matter if that’s your thing).

Women are utterly exhausted of explaining ourselves. We did not ask to be approached or ridiculed. Your vulgar whistling and poor attempts of wooing just do not do it for us. Maybe you should try using methods that don’t double up as getting your dog’s attention from across the park.

Look Within Yourself And Get Some SKill

If you looking for a nice girl to settle down with, maybe do some soul searching. Even if you need to compensate for small things in your life or you don’t feel that you are beautiful enough to woo a woman in a traditional way. You, my creepy friend, have some options.

Tips For Approaching Strange Woman

  1. Learn to love yourself for you and the world will follow.
  2. Be confident and respectful, not overconfident and offish.
  3. Watch some romcoms and take notes.
  4. Try enrolling in a French finishing school to learn some poise and grace.
  5. Don’t yell and whistle at our target, we are not animals!
  6. Avoid using words like a baby girl, baby, babe, sexy, and even normal words, in a sexual way ( i have had a catcaller make the Islamic Greeting of “Asalamulaikum” sound dirty.
  7. Check yourself. If your mama would give you a smack for talking to her like that, then shut your face!
  8. Pick the right mommet. Not every breathing woman is interested in you. If you assess the situation and identify real opportunities instead of trying to hit balls that have not been pitched, it will result in a better conversion rate.
  9. If you get shut down, be a good sport. Remember you went out on a limb, but nobody asked you to!

Be constructive while you wait for MRS Right

One day someone will like you for you! Till then maybe try working on your fitness, learn a new skill or take up a new hobby to help pass some time.

If that doesn't work, try looking for a good therapist to help you through your troubles.

Can't lie I often check out beautiful ladies however cat calling is not really something I have ever done. I will compliment ladies that look stunning in a polite manner or if I like their outfit. These are usually those that at least know me though.
I would say ignoring this behavior is the best response because those being so rude are not worth your time. Thanks for sharing!

Now there we have a gentleman. It's all about how you communicate!! I have tried ignoring, but then you a snob. I think i just gotta carry some rotten fruit with me and pelt them with a boo. Like in the old days, when performers sucked!! They are performing aren't they, and they definitely suck!! Lol

I like this but I'm one of the worst to 'cat-call' and rubber neck. Of course, it's no secret, but I do have some respect :)


Lol that's the thing!! At least be respectful after rejection!! My thing is you call out without encouragement, and I expect you to take it like a man when i encourage you to shut the fuck up lol

Lol, I think ignoring is best


You would think!! But they just get angry!! Coz you too good. Like I say either way you can't win. Sigh. Maybe I can win by handing out some upper cuts Lol
