Does anyone know good answers? Or is it better to just ignore it? That's what basically every girl I know does but tbh I'm hella fed up w that. Any ideas?

I have never lived in a big city, so I haven't experienced it much personally myself, but my all-time favorite response to catcalling I've seen online is a girl who decided to screech like a dinosaur and it freaked the guy out. It's difficult because engaging at all is dangerous. If it wasn't dangerous I'd advocate for looking him up and down and making some pointed remarks about his appearance and then walking away.

Or the woman who had just left the dentist and was therefore able to spew blood all over her chin when told to smile :) as someone who has been catcalled leaving a hospital I deeply appreciate her anecdote.
