Woman Takes Selfies With All of the Ignorant Men Who Cat-Call Her

A Wall of Cat-callers

My favorite t-shirt is a tank top that says “Cats Against Catcalls.” It’s a passive way to show my rage against strange men shouting at women in public. The reason I am not more proactive is because it’s potentially dangerous to acknowledge a guy who is yelling “Sexy” or “Ooooh, lemme get your number, baby.” If you talk back, these men — who have no respect for women or their privacy — could get angry, follow you, curse you out, or even worse.

It is so bad that many feminist groups are making anti-calling one of their major causes. Women are just people walking down the street, minding their own business; they don’t need someone to make them feel like a piece of meat. Women have feelings, and one catcall could ruin their day.

Aside from that… Has any guy ever gotten laid after making kissy noises at a passing woman?

Bolder women have their own defensive mechanisms, but a woman in the Netherlands, Noa Jansma, probably has the most inventive thus far. Her unique way to shame catcallers? Take selfies with them and post it online.
