I hear that 'Wolf Whistling' is possibly to become a 'hate crime'. I believe it already is in one northern UK town.
I should say here that I have NEVER whistled at a passing girl, nor would I ever do so.
Whistling at attractive girls has been a part of life since Adam first whistled at Eve. It is simply an outward appreciation of feminine beauty.
Young, and older, women spend hours (and a fortune) making themselves beautiful. They paint their faces lips and nails, choose their clothes very carefully, and spray themselves with expensive 'come hither' perfumes. They do their utmost to make themselves look and smell as attractive as possible.
If all that work is then appreciated by a couple of builders leaning over their scaffolding, can that really be seen as 'hatred'?
I have just been listening to a Radio 'phone-in' programme about the subject, and I was pleased to hear that most women were flattered by the attention they provoked, even if they did think it was a bit 'common'.
I fear that the man-hating radical feminist movement have been lobbying again. They really should relax.
