‘No Catcall Zones’ signs pop up in New York City during Anti-Street Harassment Week
via – NY Daily News: Dozens of “No Catcall Zone” signs have been popping up in New York City to keep unwanted jeers at bay during International Anti-Street Harassment Week.
Feminist Apparel, a nonprofit feminist clothing company, has claimed credit for the more than 50 street signs that have been spotted in Manhattan and Brooklyn this week.
“We hope to get at least one sign up in each borough by the end of the week as street harassment and catcalling is obviously a universal issue not contained to any one neighborhood,” the group said in a statement.

Catcalls are offensive (duh). But nobody has the right to not be offended. Catcalls are part of life, they happen. Get over it or yell something back. In kinder garden I came home from school one day and told Nana that some kid bit me. Nana said “did you bite them back? – next time bite them back!“. I followed Nana’s advise and was never bitten again at school.
Women are strong enough to call the catcalling lewd men out if they are so incredibly offended – many women do. Many women probably had a Nana too who taught them “sticks and stones can break my bones, but names will never hurt me” and wisely ignore the whole thing.
If the left really wants to empower women why not encourage women to take these guys to the woodshed instead of sending them the message that they are too weak to care for themselves?
Banning catcalls is yet another influence forced on society by militant lesbian feminists – eventually these toxic influences (metro sexuality, man-scapping, opening a door for a woman now being called sexist, complimenting a woman on her dress now being called sexual assault, asking a woman out on a date now being called attempted rape, etc) will begin to mess with the perpetuation of the species. Actually, it’s already happening.
Milo Yiannopoulos (Breitbart London) wrote an enlightening essay about the growing trend among Millennial men to “check out” of the dating ritual all to together, hang out with their male friends and occasionally have a one-night stand.
Many Millennial men are not even entertaining the idea of marriage or any type of coupling whatsoever. Do you blame them? These emasculated and battered men feel that it’s just not worth it these days when almost anything men say or do can be called rape or sexist.
Seriously, isn’t the left supposed to be about empowering women? We have been lectured about empowering women for years by the left, yet their policies do no such thing.
Banning catcalls isn’t empowering women. Banning catcalls is telling women they are too weak to care for themselves.
Society is in decay. Just take a look around. Add the emasculation of the American man into the mix and think about that for a minute. Buckle your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
Stay tuned, I definitely have more to say about this crap…
