Cat calling in a nutshell (via Huffpo)
Possible causes for such a situation to happen.
a) “Catcaller” was asshole
b) “Catcaller” didn’t know how to communicate with people
c) Facial expressions may have caused “Catcaller” to be triggered.
d) Victim didn’t like to take compliments (Being called beautiful is not sexually suggestive and thus isn’t really a catcall) and didn’t thank for a simple compliment, leading to an enraged reaction from the “Catcaller”.
e) Victim was an asshole and did something in the silence.
f) “Catcaller” was under the influence of a substance
3 of those are victim blaming, and the other 3 are excusing someone for catcalling based on their personality or use of drink/drugs. It’s shit like this which normalises catcalling, all this bullshit like “WELL THEY WERE X” or “YOU WERE DOING X” and therefore it’s a-okay. No, fuck you.
