They must have sat around brainstorming a lot to come up with such an insane argument.

Making comments about a woman's appearance and/or whistling at her can "put her in fear of an assault", and putting someone in fear of an assault is a crime, therefore making comments like "Looking good!" is not just a crime, it's a "hate crime".

And the police are prosecuting that now?

What's not a crime is muslims gang-raping women on new years, or cutting off the head of a baby in the subway. In fact mentioning those things is a hate crime because it's being intolerant of baby beheading culture.

Depends on the song you're whistling, I'm sure.

Wolves can't whistle.  They howl.
