the daily run

I cannot go jogging in the evenings anymore without some freak yelling how hot I am (usually while honking his car horn) from a moving vehicle. And I'm not even that good looking. I mean, I am, but that's beside the point. I wear a simple tank top and shorts and running shoes, it's not like I jog naked, and I'm not jogging in the street so I know they're not honking at me to get out of the way. Really I find the whole issue silly but feel like posting a poll about it anyway, maybe because it is so silly.

And I'd like to separate answers here by gender, not because I'm accusing one sex or the other of participating in this type of caveperson behavior more, but just because I'm curious and suspect there *might* be a correlation.

Have you ever been in a car and seen someone on the street who was so attractive, you just went ahead and honked and or yelled out a comment for them to hear?

I am a male, and no.
39(31.7%)
I am a male, and yes.
4(3.3%)
I am a female, and no.
70(56.9%)
I am a female, and yes.
10(8.1%)

Have you ever been outside, and had someone honk and or yell a quasi-vulgar comment about your appearance from a moving vehicle?

I am a male, and no.
24(19.4%)
I am a male, and yes.
19(15.3%)
I am a female, and no.
9(7.3%)
I am a female, and yes.
72(58.1%)

If yes, did it make you want to just do them right there on the street?

I am a male, and no.
30(28.0%)
I am a male, and yes.
1(0.9%)
I am a female, and no.

perhaps the sample you are using is slightly biased since all participating in your survey must at least be smart enough to use a computer.

plus:

HOOT!!!

I should point out that while I answered 'yes' to question #2, it was clear that the guy yelling was *not* intending to be complimentary....

I use to get a lot of waves when I was in the Miata and I have had girls wave at me. But I have never honked at anyone, I might just lift my hand on the steering wheel and wave at someone jogging. But I would get far more waves that I would give waves.

To be clear, the women catcalling me, did so, then had that kind of laughter that makes you feel, well they way you all feel.

Can't say as I've ever honked; I used to be a runner and a biker, and I know how startling that can be in the wrong time (some people honk just TO startle you and be assholes). Additionally, it's pretty rude. However, I'll admit to checking out women who are jogging; more often than not they're really very attractive =)

Sorry about the whole honking and yelling thing, I'm a man and it was an involuntary response. I'm a slave to my biological urges.

One time on the after school bus home from track practice, a girl pinched my ass and started making eyes at me. Maybe she really did think my butt was hot, but mostly it was because she was a weirdo. Nice, but still a weirdo.

I think the people who honk are easily excited and have poor impulse control. But, hey, at least they think you're hot :-)

I just live down the street from Northwest High School, and there are times when I'm driving down Country Acres, which is to the east of the "practice fields", and to be a dumbass that I am, I honk my horn the whole lenth of the field. :P

I would like to clarify that the only "male, and yes" answer to the last question came from my boyfriend, who, under questioning, admitted that he already knew and already had a crush on the girl who catcalled at him, and that she knew it was him when she did so and was thus doing it at least somewhat jokingly.

Sending you a note here because your spacefem.com email address isn't currently working. I don't know if you're working on something there or what, so, if you are ignore this. Basically, your wirehud address from which the spacefem.com address is generated is returning as an "Unroutable address". So I'm not sure what's up with that exactly. Thought you would want to know about it.

The note wasn't important, just a "hey, hope you are having a good weekend" deal with some other stuff. It can wait.
