    So if a man sees an attractive women he does a distinctive whistle, but I see it as harmless.
    Because some women find it disrespectful, can make them feel uncomfortable or intimidated. Its moronic. Its not how you see it, its how you make the recipient feel

    You are not at liberty to say how other people may feel. There are more appropriate ways to engage with someone to let them know you're interested.

    My friendship with my closest friends will involve insulting messages and name calling when it's our birthdays. Or just any day. But would it be appropiate to say "Thanks f**k face" to someone serving you in a shop? Of course not. But with your logic, if you don't mind then no one else should.

    Yes, there is a difference between f**k face and a "wolf whistles".

    Well, lets examine inappropiate flirting. It may be fun with co workers or friends you're very close to. But try it on a stranger, erm no. Know your audience. If I did cross the line with a friends, I've been able to solve it easier. They knew I wasn't trying to hurt them.

    Do you understand, C**k features?

    Yes i do understand, but I do not understand in what **** features is, as it is my first time hearing such an insult.
    Flirting with a stranger can be very exciting.
    I have flirted with waitresses, sales women and with women who work behind the bar and it has been a pleasure.
    Women like positive attention and compliments

    But that doesnt mean all women. How many women have you whistled at and how many women are there in the world?

    Amd yes some women find it intimidating to go past a builders site and having attention drawn to them. Not all women are the same.

    Newsflash! Women of all classes get drunk. So not a prostitute, then, as they are all working class?
    What a sheltered life you have led, or are you really that naive?

    Yes, but they do not get wasted.
    I saw a video of women passing out on the pavements and it is utterly disturbing.

    No, but I know that the average woman likes to be complimented.
    Its why they put in effort, when it comes to make up and clothes.

    Carry on doing it then, but I know plenty of my friends and colleagues would not appreciate you doing it and would tell you where to get off.

    lol.

    If you really want to compliment someone on their looks, use your words. God gave you a tongue for a reason. A whistle is basically saying "I don't think you're worth wasting my speech on, but I want to let you know that you're okay enough to stick my **** in anyway if I had the chance"
