This isn't a black and white question. It's completely fine to give a nice respectful compliment, but to go further than that and say something sexual or inappropriate isn't okay.

I agree with Mister_Man. There is definitely a middle ground between "always okay" and "never okay."

There is a fine line between a nice and respectful comment and something that you wouldn't want your mother to hear you say. This goes for the internet as well fellas. While I'm on the topic that doesn't mean that it's ok for women to do. Everybody no matter what gender or sexuality needs to be respectful.

Though a simple compliment- "You look nice today!" is always alright, comments that are violent or sexual never should be.

Neither answer is satisfactory. It's fine for men and boys to comment to each other or to themselves on how beautiful or ugly someone else is. It's not okay to harass someone though. And every woman is different. Some might like being cat-called. Many don't. People aren't robots. You can't make polarized, black and white rules for them and not expect some of them to defy the mold or come up with a scenario you didn't foresee.

There is a fine line and it is okay as long as no one crosses it
