Count me as a person who has a pretty low "ticked off" threshhold for catcallers -- if you call me "baby" or "sweetheart" and I am not in fact your baby or your sweetheart I am likely to cuss you out. I more or less go out of my way not to perform femininity, and I don't dress to impress anybody or get compliments. So when I hear "hey sexy," I don't hear "I am acknowledging that you are an attractive person," I hear, "You are constantly subject to being evaluated on your appearance. You will be viewed first as a person whose job it is to be pretty and only second/third/fourth as anything else." It really kind of spoils the illusion that I get to be a human being.
