It’s one of the most talked about online videos this week. A non-profit called “Hollaback” released it to show the bad behavior of some men toward women walking down the street. Their “ask” says that they’re dedicated to ending street harassment. We’re not sure how exactly they plan on doing that though.

The video says that they used a GoPro camera so the camera probably didn’t attract a lot of attention. The editing is probably very misleading though. To get two minutes of guys catcalling, they had to shoot ten hours of walking. It’s not likely that the other 9 hours 58 minutes contained a lot of really objectionable behavior since some of what made it into the video was fairly benign.

Catcalling is now the outrage du jour though.

Of course there HAS to be a racial component.
