Yeah, and I think a lot of women secretly probably feel good about themselves after being noticed.

Oh dear... eerily, I felt a bit of harassment like that in the video when I was in Sydney (We stayed in Potts Point, so basically Kings Cross) and on two occasions people yelled things out when we walked along the street. When I was dressed up one night, one said to my partner "You're a lucky man, you've got a beautiful woman" which wasn't too bad. Wouldn't say that's harassment. (Hey, I'll take a compliment when I get one lol ) but then on the last day, walking towards Kings Cross Station in just jeans and a t shirt (like the video!) I'm carrying my suitcase and a guy said hello to me. I said Hey. Then he asked if that was my partner and proceeded to yell out "You're lucky mate, she's got great t**s" then walked off, watching me from behind as he went apparently (My partner saw that part) definitely made me feel pretty creeped out and uncomfortable, but yeah I guess in bad areas that's what happens. I'm glad I wasn't alone. Maybe one has to experience this stuff a bit frequently to actually get what the woman in the video feels, because if you get comments on your appearance a lot, it could just be easy to lump them all together under a 'this is all bad' banner. It hardly ever happens to me, but still I see the two events as related, as comments about my appearance. Though they were slightly different in their nature and therefore evoked different emotions for me.

Urk, that is dreadful Boo, and not a compliment at all. You do need to be aware of where you are and the type of people around you, specially when in a strange city. I heard recently that the video had been staged! Apparently it was done to show people what women had to contend with, but all the men were hired. So in reality she may have walked the same street and had nothing said to her at all.

There is one in every crowd Boo, and unfortunately the numbers are growing.
