His buddies hand out their cell phone numbers and then the girls send them topless pics or sext them. Flirting nowadays is sexting. Times are a changing it seems.

    I think you're conflating legitimate courtship behavior with accosting strangers in a way that makes them feel powerless.

    Coaching isn't the same as calling out the content of your post as it relates to the topic. Like MacDuff, you seem to be saying catcalls are the same as a sincere flirtatious, face-to-face comment.

    Except men don't really mind it in general, and it is not threatening like it can be for women.

    Depends on the circumstances. In college, guys always catcall girls especially if they are at a party or at a game. Met my future husband that way. But yea if you are walking alone and a group approaches you at night that's different.

    I'll be sixty in October. When I asked "Are you kidding?" the clerks said "No, you have to look 40."

    And it was a woman so she wasn't just schmoozing me because it was "Make an old lady happy" day at Kroger.

    Well, at least I don't think she was.

    Thanks from Babba, Davocrat, bajisima and 1 others

As well as performing maintenance on the trucks.

    One of my bosses put the moves on me one time (while I was living with my husband before we were married and my boss was well aware of this) and I had to fend him off without losing my job.

    This shit isn't funny or anything not to take seriously. It sucks. And while it may occasionally happen to males, it rarely has the consequences or affects them in the same way. It's not funny or something to make light of.

    Sorry to ruin the mood.

    On second thought, I'm not sorry. This simply isn't something to make fun of and I'm shocked that any woman would.
    Good point. When I worked at Douglas I was the only woman on the shop floor on my shift. I never had a problem except one minor incident, but the machines were really big and far apart so it limited contact I had with the other machine operators.

    Never had a boss try and pick up on me, that's the worst.

    Yeah, you hear women complain about being hit on all the time, but the at other times saying they like it and want it.
