Do Cat Calls Motivate Us?
I've frequently touched on the topic of catcalls in my more rude articles. Every time a man whistles or makes a comment in passing, I can't help but laugh. I mean, do these men really think that shouting out how they think I look in public will entice me to talk to them?
Well, maybe. A new study conducted by XLS-Medical Fat Binder found that 26 percent of dieters lose motivation to continue with their healthy lifestyles if no one notices. In turn, it was concluded that 54 percent of women surveyed actually love those random catcalls.
Women who are in favor of cat calls claim that a cat call is a very flattering form of compliment and that they would be more in favor to continue their healthy regimen if people thought that they were in fact “attractive”.
What do you think about this study? Is it accurate?
