Ireland had a wolf-whistling contest. Read here. As someone who has degrading things yelled out the window at her practically every day, I'm disgusted. Wolf-whistling is a symptom of a larger problem of disrespecting and devaluing women. I first learned about this on www.feministing.com. I am so sick of this bullshit. Yes, it's politically incorrect. Pointing that out doesn't make it ok to keep practicing it, or to make a competition out of it. We should be discouraging this ape-like behavior. Not rewarding it.
