If you’re a vagina owner and a repeated walking-down-a-street-at-any-given-time offender you are the potential subject for the never-ending ancient practice of catcalling. As a vagina owner and avid walker in NYC unfortunately I have fallen victim to many practicing cat callers and their oh-so-sensual derogative commentary. It makes me ponder quite often though, what is the appeal for the perpetrators of such random uncalled for outbursts? I can’t imagine anyone ever being successful in picking up women with cat calling. Like I know I don’t wet my own panties or anything when I hear “look at the titties on that one”.

Here are 10 ways of how to beat the system ladies, take the power back, outshine the cat caller at their own game.
