A short article about the effects of young girls walking past a building site and getting abuse thrown at her.

How would you like it

A nice young lady walks down the road minding her own business, as she walks past a building site, yes you guessed it, wolf whistles, rude comments, suggestive remarks being thrown at her left right and centre, occasionally women like this sort of thing, but I am sure there are the majority of women who detest it, and I am a guy saying this, don’t get me wrong I think all these things about the sexy young girl walking past, but I would not lower myself to be shouting it out, I would rather keep those thoughts to myself, this is leading up to a situation I witnessed once on a building site I was working on,
when a guy started throwing all sorts of sexist remarks to a pretty young girl walking past the site, as she heard the vile comments she stopped in her tracks and glared at the culprit giving out the trash, she walked across the road to within a few feet from him and in front of all his mates she accepted the sordid suggestions, and started to open her jacket, and replied come on then show me what you have got, and before she got to the third button he disappeared round the other side of the scaffold, leaving all his mates laughing at his humiliation, at the end of the day how would all the loud mouth idiots like that guy like it done to them, or if it was your young daughter how would you like it knowing perverts had those intensions, at the end of the day keep your thoughts to yourself unless they are a compliment said in the correct manner or situation.

Thank you Martin, How do I respond to this one?, I am a dad of two twenty something daughters, and probably, as their father, would love to put a "Louisville slugger" to their noggins. Unfortunately, my H.R. background finds yet another angle to it as well. It would seem that from your and my perspective, that the baseball bat would be the required instrument of punishment to take. On the other hand, and there always is another viewpoint. In Italy for example, If no wolf whistles and and lewd remarks were passed, that same young lady would be offended by the deafening silence, as I had witnessed a few years ago in Milan Italy.
I am not Italian, so, I said, a tough one to answer, an excellent read.

Thanks for the comments, I suppose how crude the remarks, I suppose there are nice ways to let a lady know how beautiful she is without getting a slap, which leads to another story, "What man understands a woman" ?
