Cat-calling men give all men a bad name ?


Fri Mar 19, 11:49 am ET
NEW YORK (Reuters) –



Men who harass women with cat calls and sexual comments are actually harming
their whole gender, a study has found.

The research, by Stephenie Chaudoir and Diane Quinn of the University of Connecticut
in the United States, looked into the feelings and reactions of women who saw and
heard men making derogatory remarks to other women.

The researchers asked 114 undergraduate female students to watch a video and imagine
themselves as bystanders to a situation where a man made either a sexist remark at
another woman or simply greeted her.

The students were then asked to rate their levels of anxiety and depression as well as
their anger and fear toward men and their desire to move against or away from men.


The study showed that in addition to feeling upset, women were more likely to take the
sexist remark as an insult to their gender, and feel greater anger and motivation to take
direct action toward men in general.


"Women are obviously implicated because they suffer direct negative consequences
as targets of prejudice and, as the current work demonstrates, indirect consequences
as bystanders," the researchers said in the study.


"But sexism also harms men as well. Whenever a single man's prejudiced actions are attributed
to his gender identity, male perpetrators impact how women view and react to men generally."

The study was published in the journal Sex Roles.

Do you really believe that crap? She walks a little farther and a guy opens a door for her and has a kind word to say. So now she must thinbk all guys are wonderful. Women aren't stupid. There are just as many stupid women as stupid men...well almost as many, but you get my point?

Yes, Joebert dear, I think I get your point....

I'll recap it:

Women are not stupid
but if they were, the number of stupid men would still be significantly greater

Not sure I would say significantly greater, but a little greater.
