And sorry this happened to you OP, but to answer your question:
I usually don't get catcalls or inappropriate comments, but if I did, I would've just called them out on their sexual harassment and let them know that how they are acting isn't acceptable. If I see it happening to another women/girl, then I will usually call them out.
If I were in your shoes and I noticed that I was being followed, since I can be a very direct and blunt person, I prlly just would've taken out my camera and started taking pictures and video recording him, telling him that I was going to broadcast the pictures/video - to YT, the police, family/brothers/uncles (other MEN), etc - of the harassment.
And you "being completely covered" is irrelevant - even women who are covered head to toe get sexually harassed. It boils down to the men being responsible for their behaviors. And you are right - I know of some women who do enjoy the catcalls- it's weird and beyond me, but I think those women just suffer from low-self esteem and need validation from other ppl.
It's sad because sometimes I see other women/girls get embarrassed and they don't know how to respond so they just giggle or laugh it off because they think guys are 'supposed' to act this way.
Pardon the essay, but you opened a can of worms
I'm very passionate about this topic if you couldn't tell.
