At last !!! Finally something is being done in our criminal justice system about sexist comments , wolf whistles ! Don’t you just hate it when your walking down the road and your hear that whistle sound , followed by some vulgar comments about your bottom or breasts!! I usually respond with something that Rican not type on here and I make them feel small!!
It seems silly really wolf whistling being a criminal offence , but it is very degrading , there’s no need for it , but is this just a step to far ? I herd a man say in a article that women are OK with sexism as long as t benefits them ! What’s your thoughts on his comment? Are we OK with sexism if we benefit from it ? Don’t really see how we can , a lot of the time we retaliate towards the things that are said or done to us , also the anti rape posters always refer to a women , not drinking to much , not walking alone , cover your drinks up , don’t wear revealing clothing !! Always aimed at the women , what about No means No !

I could go on all day about this , but I am pleased that we are being taken serious now, we should be respected , what is your view on this article ? Is tone step to far ? Or is it right to make it an offence to make sexist remarks and to wolf whistle a women ?

Has it happened to you ? Do you like it when it does happen ? What is a sexist remark ?

What ever you want to say on this , let me know I want to hear it .

Thank you Sarah K Nottingham
