Amanda Seales Debates Steve Santagati On CNN Over Viral Hollaback Video
On Saturday, CNN Newsroom hosted a discussion of the now-infamous catcalling video in which a woman filmed herself getting catcalled and propositioned by men on the street more than 100 times over the course of 10 hours of walking in New York City.
Anchor Fredricka Whitfield welcomed stand-up comic Amanda Seales and Steve Santagati, author of The MANual: A True Bad Boy Explains How Men Think, Date, and Mate and a new book called Code of Honor.
“Women are expected, from the minute we leave the house, to be smiling and available for whatever men want to say to us,” said Seales. “And don’t get me wrong, ‘Hello’ is fine.”
“Oh, come on,” said Santagati.
“I see you shaking your head,” Seales said to him, “but you are not an expert in this because you are not a woman walking in the street, so you don’t know.”
“No, no,” Santagati protested. “I’m more of an expert than you and I’ll tell you why. Cos I’m a guy and I know how we think, more than you guys will ever know. I can’t get in a woman’s head any more than just like, uh, thinking about it.”
“The bottom line is this, ladies,” he went on, “you would not care if all these guys were hot. They would be bolstering your self-esteem, bolstering your ego. There is nothing more that a woman loves to hear than how pretty she is.”
Oh yeah, he’s dead azz serious too. Press play to watch this guy eat his foot/
Me Tarzan. You Jane.
