A recent survey has found that women are more likely to think that cat-calling is acceptable than men.
The data from the survey provided by the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen) in the U.K. suggests that it is the case because of women’s more frequent exposure to remarks about their appearance.
According to the research, 61% of men think that it is always (or usually) wrong for a man to comment the woman’s appearance on the street. However, only 52% of the women said that they find it wrong.
When it came to women commenting on men’s appearance, however, only 35% of men thought that it is always (or usually) wrong. However, women thought that it is as wrong as when men are cat-calling women, so 52% of them answered exactly that.
According to the study, middle-aged men are more likely to say that telling a woman in the street that she looks gorgeous is wrong when compared to men aged 18-34.
The research also found that around 54% of Britain’s population believe that people can be trusted, and the number is the highest since the question was first asked in 1998.
64% of people with degrees think that other people can be trusted, while only 41% of people with routine or manual jobs think the same.
When it comes to politics, 49% of people aged 55 or over think that the U.K. should leave the EU, in contrast with only 23% of people aged 18 to 34, and only 19% of graduates.
3,988 adults in Britain took part in the survey.
