"Yo Ma", "A Girl", "Mmm girl, you look good", "Sister", and "Sexy Chocolate" are all ways not to get a female's attention. Furthermore, shouting any of those phrases from half way across the street is completely disrespectful and out of line. The worst part about ignorant cat calling is that it comes from guys I have no desire to talk to. It's always the sorriest looking brothers that want to approach me and then they get mad when I don't respond. They always say, "Oh, I thought you were a sister", "You can't speak", or "What' wrong with you?"
What's wrong with me? I'll tell you what's wrong with me. I am tired of being publicly disrespected by males that won't even let me walk to the grocery store without hearing some type of foolishness come out their mouths. I absolutely hate the feeling I get when I walk past a group of guys that think it's flattering to comment on any part of my body. And what bothers me the most, is the fact that the strong, intellectual, powerful brothers do not approach me, but the Flavor Flav type looking dudes on the corner have no problem speaking their minds.
Here's a tip to all males: walk up to a woman you find attractive and say, "Hello, my name is (insert name here), and ask her an open ended question like "How is your day going?" or "How are you?" And if you're feeling brave enough, try telling her she's beautiful or that she has a nice smile. A respectful complement goes a long way.
