Another question for DU men:
Why is it that a woman, even a supposedly unattractive one, can't walk past a construction site -- or any gathering of mostly heterosexual males -- without the patented catcalls and and hoots?

10. Yup.
Most of use keep it discrete, but there are enough that are pigs and proud of it to have one or two in every gathering.

3. What you are hearing is...
a few assholes standing out in a group of regular men who are not doing that.

7. Shouldn't that be a question only for construction workers?
I have no idea why they do that. If the guys in my office did that, we would be fired.

8. After that first erection, the big head relinquishes control, forever
It's just that simple. It's just like Pinocchio when he told that first lie, only further down the torso. It's a game-changer and a life-changer.

9. It's progress!
In these modern times we try to be sensitive to everyone's needs, and be equal opportunity harassers.

11. Sadly, that's almost tradition now.
I've seen jokes in sitcoms about women who wanted attention their husbands didn't give them getting dolled up to go walk past construction sites.

12. Any gathering of heterosexual males is a stretch
If that were the case, people would constantly notice this behavior in restaurants, classrooms and the office.

13. At the bottom of it all, we want to get into your shorts.
Some of us contain it better than others.

There are stupid, obnoxious women too, you know, many of them in politics or on TV.

17. I don't know about elsewhere but in PC Nor Cal construction
it is now cause for immediate termination.

Now, we can only think cat calls...and we do...cause were men...and men are pigs...All men are pigs...some of us just hide it better than others.

But back in the day, harass was two words!

I like to think of myself as reasonably evolved.

20. There was once a crew of workmen right outside my house. Every day I had to go through the gauntlet.
Then one day I walked through with the mother of a then friend of mine. The men were polite and respectful. I laughed at them then.
