[Inspired by https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1547397629260226560] Should catcalling be criminalized?

No, complimenting people isn't a crime. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez loved that. She didn't hate that. She was humble bragging about someone thinking she's hot. Just like all speech, catcalling has a spectrum. Innocent/innocuous catcalling isn't a crime. Even if it's vulgar/tasteless, it still doesn't warrant putting someone in a cage. If it becomes extreme to the point where they're following the person and won't leave them alone, then maybe a cop could tell them to stop, fine them or arrest them. Arresting people is a big deal and shouldn't be done lightly.
