No Adam teasing: College girls told to stop wolf whistling

London, Jun 22 (UNI) In a reversal of traditional gender stereotypes, girls of a British college have been asked to stop wolf-whistling at men.

Officials at West Kent College in Tonbridge, Kent, sent an email warning students to stop harassing builders both whilst on site and as they walk around the campus.

The written warning stated that their behaviour was ''totally unacceptable'' and any student caught harassing contractors would face disciplinary action.

The email was sent after a demolition team started work on a 94 million pounds, three-year building project at the campus.

''Although we are sure no offence is meant, this constitutes harassment and is wholly unacceptable,'' the Daily Telegraph quoted the email.

The college authorities have asked the contractors' representative to pass on all instances of harassment to the college.

Contractors' spokesperson Galliford Try denied receiving any complaints, however, and said, ''We have no registered complaints on this issue. However we do not condone inappropriate behaviour from any parties on our sites." UNI XC SYU BST1945
