Harass is a big word, maybe it should be “holla at chicks” instead. And why do blue collar dudes, like myself, holla at chicks?
That’s pretty much it. So if you’re a chick and you’re out and a construction worker gives you a holler, you can react anyway you want to him, but in your head, you should probably take the compliment. We’re letting you know that you’re a fine lookin’ woman.
What I Usually Say
When I’m at a job site and there’s 10s of workers all lined up along the street on lunch break and a cute chick walks by, I don’t say anything. They’re getting stared at and called at by a whole bunch of dudes, it’s probably a bit much for her, so I try to not even look at her.
When it’s a small job site or not that many dudes are around, I usually say, “Hey beautiful.” Sometimes they say nothing and keep walking, and sometimes they say, “Hey handsome.” And that’s pretty much it. If they don’t respond to me and ignore me, I don’t do anything about it. That’s their choice and they have the freedom of speech just like me.
There’s one ethnic group in specific that I think crosses the line more often than anyone else. They get aggressive sometimes with the whistling and kissy noises. I think it’s kinda gross, but I don’t say anything. My line might not be someone else’s line.
And unless one is outright attacked, a woman can take care of herself.
What if it Was My Daughter?
If I was walking with one of my daughters and some dude whistled, I’d get pissed. Mostly because I’m right there, are you an idiot?!
If one of my daughters was walking alone and got holla’d at, it doesn’t bother me. They can handle themselves. They’re big girls now.
I don’t see dudes in business suits hollering at hot chicks, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t in their off time. And if they don’t, I don’t know why, maybe they don’t have any nuts and don’t know how to talk to chicks. Hard to say.
How many people have I offended with this post? If you think I’m a tool for hollering at cute chicks, you’ve got free speech and can tell me in the comments, I won’t filter you out. And if you think it’s radical to the max, you can let me know that too.
