cenario 2--Woman walks alone down street, car of males slows to offer/insult/coral her into taking a "ride" with them. According to this conflict, the woman yells back, but in order to do so, gets closer to the car than any lone and cautious woman really would. The narrator, a clinical, scientific professor-lady frames the lessons from each scene: that catcalling is a misdirected and ineffective form of communication. Maybe.
Furthermore, the roll play undermined this perfectly plausible, if too timid solution when the scenario depicted a father talking to his daughter about rude boys, and avoided the greater necessity of challenging the rude boys about their rude behavior. By ignoring altogether men's responsibility for their own actions, the performance inadvertently demonstrated women are somehow responsible for their own victimization.
Catcalling could be explained as:
a. An un-evolved mode of flirting
b. An unwarranted compliment and unavoidable fact of life for attractive females; especially in New York City
c. A revolting attack on a women's sense of self, personal space and security in public
d. A harmless, competitive protrusion of masculinity; often the habit of boredom
e. All of the above
