Asinine Comment of the Week

From davidme on the Tweeting catcalls post:
"I am a man and a woman whistled at me from her car the other day just because I was dressed sharply walking to work one day.

I felt like I was being attacked! I tried to get her license plate, but I was too stunned and mortified at what she had just done.

I'll never be the same. What if this becomes as pervasive as those cruel men who inflict this on women? Can men handle it? Fight back, women! Wet your whistles!"

Thanks for your suggestion, davidme. We'll take that into consideration because obviously the best response to bodily objectification and street harassment is MORE objectification and street harassment.
