Bless this entirely. But it’s sickening how WE have to be the ones to correct the guys’ actions. Because being a decent human being is out of the question apparently.
“What men need is a wake-up call: You’re the problem. If not you personally, then your best friend, a coworker, or that dude in your fantasy football league is. You’re making us feel unsafe every day, in a thousand different ways. To help you better identify your harassing behavior, we’ve illustrated the most common types of misogynists—along with the comebacks from us you might not get, given the trap-door spideriness of your attacks, but which you certainly deserve.”
It is so hard for nice guys to meet women anymore because so many nice girls get these stereotypes in their head and are always on the defensive. It seems like every look is dirty, every smile is malevolent, and every compliment is suspicious and just coming up to someone randomly on the street and asking them on a date because you like their hair or something is definitely out of style. In my opinion, based on my experiences, these situations are brought upon women by an overwhelming minority of the male population and the stereotype is really starting to get to me because I like to meet people and it’s getting harder to do. I don’t ask much, just please put the word “some” in front of your use of a male identifier when addressing this problem because many of us men are on your side, it’s just harder to see the group of 5 or 6 quieter guys a table or two down from one hooting asshole and his wingman.
First and Foremost I apologize to my followers who had to see any Dr. Who stuff.
Secondly, I want to congratulate Austin on what has been the most effective digital defamation I have been victim to to date. Bravo, I sincerely mean it. Were you to question my sexuality I would not care and likely even leave the post up but making it seem that I am obsessed with Dr. Who, wow, that was good (no sarcasm, but fuck you a little).
Seriously, I don’t care who they are, once I find out that someone is obsessed with Dr. Who I kinda loose respect for them a little bit. The show is bearable but the fans, my god, just chill out, and the subculture is so exclusive. In short, if you don’t love Dr. Who it’s really really hard to maintain a friendship with a Dr. Who fan. So, good-on-you Austin, I doubt anything else could have shattered my credibility any more effectively.
