France to fine men up to €750 for wolf-whistling

Men will be fined for wolf-whistling or making sexual comments towards women in France, as part of new tougher legislation to combat lecherous behaviour.

Those who break the law will face on-the-spot fines of up to €750 (£655).

France's president, Emmanuel Macron, said the law was meant to ensure "women are not afraid to be outside."

The country's minister for gender equality, Marlene Schiappa, was previously asked about the difficulty of drawing a line between harassment and flirtation.

She said: "We know very well at what point we start feeling intimidated, unsafe or harassed in the street."

This is so stupid :whereisit: First of all, how often does that happen in 2018? And second of all, why would it make you feel afraid to go outside? I'd just take it as a compliment.

This. Women want compliments and then they turn around and don't want it.

As long as its not physical then I don't see any problems with it - people are going to say whatever they want.

:courtney:

Before you know it women will be lying about the whistling just to get money out of men.

Well there is nothing to the reporter really.

Also guys apparently people would be find for making provoking sexual comments, not just wolf-whistling. I guess that's one good bit out of it.
