Wolf Whistling/A compliment or is it harassment?


Should women learn to love the wolf-whistle again? What has your experience been, as either that of the whistler or the lady on the receiving end of one?

    I think that just about sums this up perfectly. Thanks for your comment.

    A little like a bird preening their feathers and checking out the competition, perhaps! I like your interpretation.

    I have listened to two radio programs recently on which they were talking about wolf whistles. The impression I got was that there are some women who are vehemently against it, others feel flattered by it.

    I do agree with you, but I do wonder sometimes if there should be an upper age which is considered appropriate for the person doing the whistling:)

    Thanks for sharing your view. I think it might be very threatening if it were done by a group of men but, the one on his own might make it even more scary as you say.
