International wolf whistle etiquette

This is exactly what I do when receiving wolf whistles in a foreign country. 


Police Sergeant Peter Masters said the woman, an Israeli tourist, told police she didn’t take kindly to wolf-whistles from workmen involved in work on the town’s main street.

Making the most of the balmy late-autumn day, she stripped bare to use the ATM, then put her clothes on again and calmly walked away.

“She said she had thought `bugger them, I’ll show them what I’ve got’.”

The Israeli aren’t well known for their use of the word ‘bugger’ – perhaps this tourist had spent some time watching our news programmes or car adverts.

The KeriKeri workmen got a real lesson in what happens when you objectify women with a public wolf whistle.  Oh yes.  That’ll teach ’em.  Northland Polytech are now offering part time courses in wolf and other animalistic whistles.

“She gave the explanation that she had been. . . pestered by New Zealand men. She’s not an unattractive looking lady.

“We treated it as a one-off. She was taken back to the police station and spoken to and told that was inappropriate in New Zealand,” Mr Masters said.

Jeesh.  That’s all we need, the officials harp on about inappropriate nudity, and the rest of the country has to prep themselves for yet another Marc Ellis streak attempt.

Is it inappropriate of me to ask where the photos of this “not an unattractive looking lady” at the ATM are?  Come on, tis the digital age, surely even someone in KeriKeri had access to a digi cam.

  1. Well the worrying thing to me is the way ‘Sgt’ Masters doesn’t seem to understand that his comment about ‘not an unattractive looking lady’ speaks volumes about NZ Police.
    Kerikeri has all the problems of any place but for a sgt to speak like that is beyond belief.

    Masters loves using the press, even when he lost his OC station status he used it to moan like a child. With the aforementioned comment I can see why he lost that position, mind you his replacement left alot to be desired!

    Rank amateurs playing cops is all I can say. To act liek its a small alomost English type village is a joke, graffitti everywhere and a rubbish Police service is what you get in Kerikeri!
