Response to Major Nikon (Original post)

1. Well, she got paid for both columns, presumably.

Pretty good gig, getting money for arguing with yourself.

As for catcalling, the one issue I never see addressed in conversations about it, is geography. Almost universally the articles and pieces commenting on it are situated in east coast environs, places like Manhattan and the like.

Never in my entire life have I witnessed that sort of behavior on the streets of, say, Portland or San Francisco. But there are other sorts of obnoxious, boorish behaviors- and a concomitant aggressiveness and in your face 'tude- which seem to correspond to the farther East one goes in the US.

I don't know what the answer there is, but it's an aspect I almost never hear mentioned in those discussions.
