Okay, in this day and age this is completely dumb and the idiot did himself no favours by laughing and driving off when told the comment wasn't appreciated.
Is this really the world we now live in (I'd love the lasses on the site to comment if they were willing as obviously I'm coming from a male perspective here).
A cyclist who confronted a man after he shouted lewd comments out of his car at her has spoken of the barrage of daily harassment faced by women.
"He told me I should have a health warning because my backside was going to cause an accident," she said. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-57427696
Is that really a lewd comments (sic)?
Is it harassment in reality? (it's not legally).
It's not a wolf whistle (which isn't strictly harassment either), it's not 'get your...' which always deserves a punch. It's not a total stranger telling you what they'd do given half a chance.
It's certainly not what the article then goes on to reference - ie beer cans being thrown at them???? WTF?
And then we get the I felt gaslighted and doubted myself poor me victim angle for emotional purposes.
Is a pretty harmless compliment now verbal assault? Should we now make the difference between a club, pub and the street where you see someone attractive and try and make a connection?
I had a shave a while back, neighbour commented I didn't half look better, and younger, should I be reporting her? I took it as a compliment and joked back, give it another few months and I'll be back to looking like normal.
Justice Secretary Robert Buckland has apologised to rape victims for low conviction rates in England and Wales and promised to "do a lot better".

I think he means we go back to a legal system that doesn't say she was asking for it or texted I like you.
They said that him pretty much off the hook. Saying on CNN last night it is possible one or more women could take civil action but unless they can provide burden of proof, it is she says he says and would likely to be unsuccessful. I have also seen that Rolf Harris has also left prison after serving less than 3 years.
