Street harassment vs cold approach

A young woman secretly taped her experiences walking around the city being “cat-called” and blatantly harassed on the street. The video went viral and sparked a discussion about what women go through when they get unwanted attention.

The debate raged on and on for days and I recall one gentleman saying that women are hypocrites because if the men who were harassing them were attractive, there would not be an issue. So he thinks approaching a woman and street harassing are the same thing. What do you think?

I am certain that I know the difference between a guy approaching me and one who is checking out my rack, but maybe I’m naive. Ladies, how do you know the difference?

Guys do you see street harassment as a problem? Do you think that flirting and asking a woman out can be misconstrued as harassment?
