Exactly why do people keep saying she was walking through a bad neighborhood? More importantly, why do people think that actually diverges the problem?

Walking through a bad neighborhood for ten hours and only having a couple minutes to show for it is probably actually pretty good, particularly when you subtract all of those apparently gravely offensive "God bless have a nice day's" that she got.

I really couldn't care less about this trending hyper feminist "new" social issue. There'll be some other bullshit next week for everyone's hair to catch on fire about, don't worry.

How does what I said even remotely resemble anything to do with gamergate?

I can understand someone giving compliments, but some of the things in the video is taking it too far. It's nice to get a compliment here and there but when guys act like pigs it's just rude. A gentleman will say "you look very pretty today miss" or something along those lines, something with class. Not this trashy "hey baby, you loookin fineee". I think the way some people conduct themselves is shameful and they need to be hit for it.

That's is just my opinion tho.


I agreed :)

Some of these replies are so biased towards men, if you don't feel comfortable with being complimented from people with a dark mind, do

something about- people need to focus on real problems then this mediocre group that rarely centers on the whole streets of the world but on the streets of New York.

End of discussion.

You can't strictly take the words of what's being said and automatically say that it's completely benign. More meaning is implied in the way it's being said. What else was he doing that needs to be taken into account, such as the classic look-over or leering? Why make unsolicited comments to women to begin with? When you hear this kind of thing enough the line blurs between the most well-meaning guy and a sexually harassment-y kind of guy.

The not all men comment is also a derailment without addressing the actuality of what's going on. Sort of like this paragraph, but it's come up regardless. Always does. It derails from the fact that men are still the primary perpetrators of this. The majority of it is perpetuated by men. You're just turning a blind eye to this kind of thing by saying that. Everyone thinks they're not that guy, or the guys they know don't do that, but it's a way of not taking responsibility. Don't think of it as a personal attack. Actually listen to women. Maybe stop people you know that actually do this sort of thing.

This happens from time to time whenever I'm with my amigas. I even get uncomfortable and it's just that boys are just too lonely and they need pleasure to fill themselves. Even if it's not a "rude" approach to a woman, you can easily tell the guy's objective in the end. "We can't be friends ?" PLEASE, there are plenty of other human beings on the street besides the woman wearing yoga pants. Go befriend them.

There is a difference between complimenting and just cat calls. I think compliments are nice.

I live in Manhattan, and this sort of shit happens all the time when I go out with my sister or some of my friends.

It seems harmless in the video, but if you've ever been to NYC and had it happen to people you know, you'd know its pretty unsettling - especially when they follow you. Its one thing to compliment and ask out strangers, but it should be in an appropriate setting like a bar or entertainment setting, not when just walking down the street.

For the people who say these are harmless compliments, you're right - for some of them. The simple compliments aren't so bad, but pretty often they come up to you and demand some sort of answer (like in the video, the guy that kept asking her to talk). Just look at the people doing it. These are not 'clean-cut' individuals. While that doesn't immediately make them dangerous, its impossible to know for sure, and having them follow is incredible annoying.
This sort of stuff shouldn't happen, especially if you're just walking down the street.

In the 80s everyone was tougher.

Dude - "Ey gurl"
Chick - N***a please"

Then everyone would be on their way. Not cry about it on the internet.

If I film a kid supposedly putting kittens and a brick into a burlap sack and tossing it into a river, could we move on from this conversation?

I find most if not all people that do that to be douchebags.
