Two Italian army soldiers go on trial in Milan May 13 for cat-calling a 20-year-old woman in the Lombardy capital last year, sources said Tuesday.Italy used to be the land of romance, but its fertility rate is 1.4 children per woman, and dropping.
The soldiers, who have been transferred from the barracks they were serving at and suspended from duty, are charged with hurling insults and sexually aggressive expressions at the woman for at least three times in the same afternoon.
Cat-calling and wolf-whistling were recently added to the Italian criminal code.
How is Italy going to survive if it makes it a crime for a man to express interest in a woman?
There has been a trend among feminists to lump together all MeToo behavioral complaints, and treat them all as rape. Whistling is next, I guess.
