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.

Itโ€™s harassment, plain and simple. CUT ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ THAT ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ ๐Ÿ’ฉ ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ OUT ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ!!! Would that be acceptable at work? Noโ€ฆ so it should not be acceptable anywhere.

No, if only because it's another reason to jail brown people, because you know how a law like that is going to be enforced

In which case it would be a relief to have the huge amount of dumbass politicians jailed in an instant! I'm all for it!

No, we shouldn't criminalize speech just because it makes people uncomfortable. Women don't have to be protected from being made aware that they're wanted.
