Hey sugarbuns! Yeah you! Smile darlin’, it might never happen! What? Waddaya mean, that’s harassment? What are you, gay?
Oh those poor builders, they can’t take what they dish out, can they….
Girls banned from whistling at builders
A further education college has banned its female students from wolf-whistling at builders.
Girls at West Kent College have been advised that whistling constitutes harassment and is unacceptable
Officials sent an email to all pupils warning that the behaviour was “totally unacceptable”, and saying any students caught harassing contractors would face disciplinary action.
The email was sent after a demolition team started work on a £94 million, three-year building project at the campus.
The email read: “It has come to the attention of the college that some female students have been making comments to, or whistling at, the builders both whilst on site and as they walk around the campus.
“Although we are sure no offence is meant, this constitutes harassment and is wholly unacceptable.
What a bunch of limp wimps.
