    College girls banned from whistling at builders

    Life in the UK must be interesting these days....

    College girls banned from whistling at builders


    By Rupert Neate

    Last Updated: 12:01am BST 23/06/2008

    A further education college is having to protect builders from wolf-whistling girls, in a reversal of traditional gender stereotypes.

    Officials at West Kent College in Tonbridge, Kent, 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.

    Quote from article:
    Meanwhile new laws could see wolf-whistling builders placed on the sex offenders register. The Sexual Offences (Scotland) Bill will create a new offence of "communicating indecently", punishable by up to 10 years in jail.


    Finally a law that makes sense. Too bad there will only be 3 MPs outside of the gaol, to discuss laws once this idiocy has been implemented.

    A spokeswoman for the contractors, Galliford Try, said: "We have no registered complaints on this issue.
    I doubt this was really a problem until the college made it one. No normal male is going to complain about a woman whistling at him.

    Being good makes you sick Scott? How is your whistler?

    Sorry, off topic. I do agree with F&L. The college is making it an issue. The guys probably love it.
