Hidden-camera “catcalling” videos are all the rage, and Cosmopolitan has thrown its hat into the ring with Men React to Their Girlfriends Getting Catcalled.
As the title indicates, a group of men was forced to watch footage of their girlfriends getting cat called on the streets of New York. Lo and behold, they didn’t really like it.
Understandably, the men were pissed with some of the creeps in this video. For example, one boyfriend was angry with a strip club employee who told his girlfriend that his club was hiring. Another was angered when his girlfriend was offered a foot massage.
But I was a little confused by the boyfriend who was angered by a random guy telling his girlfriend she had nice tattoos. After all, she is covered in them. I understand it might get annoying. But in a video where a woman is called a “bitch” for hanging out with white people, “I like your tattoos” seems pretty harmless by comparison.
At any rate, I shouldn’t have to say this, but if you’re a guy and you see a woman walking down the street, don’t yell creepy things at her. In fact, just don’t say anything. The faster we bring catcalling to an end, the faster we can stop posting these videos… except the one we made.
That was one of the good ones.
