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.
Great answer, dashing! Yes, it seems to me to only happen if one if walking past a construction crew at work. They are not close and just admiring a lovely woman it seems.
I think that is probably how most people regard it Faith. Has sexism gone wrong. Some people say it is a little harmful fun but others certainly don't?
Nothing wrong with a smile returned:)
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:)
I don't want to be whistled at by Aanyone but my guy and he does not whistle at anyone but ME.I think it is a creepy,arrogant obnoxious thing to do at any age ,to a stranger.
Thank goodness I don't live anywhere near a building site! I don't think I would enjoy it much if I was with a boyfriend and there were whisles coming my way.
Sounds a little early to branch out into this type of behaviour. I think we should be teaching young lads of this age to respect women no matter what their age.
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.
