Honestly, I’d be happy if he were just good at using spellcheck.
For whom “giving advice to” = “attacking,” and outright, justifiable criticism = MISANDRY.
(This really applies to all boys, but a white boy is the latest in a long line of offenders.)
And they say women overreact? Ha. Where’s a sarcastic laugh GIF when I need one?
Something like this?
This is by no means my entire profile, just the relevant bits. I think from now on I’m just gonna copy-paste this to everyone who just sends a “hey”-type message but hasn’t been insulting otherwise.
It does not sound nice. It also sounds like a lie.
"Message" your body?
kids these days
Yeahhh, arguing about it and insulting you instead of just taking the hint and going away totally proves he’s not a child. Awesome logic.
I thought I had cornered the market on children. I’m thrilled to be sharing the “I’m not your sugar momma” wealth.
Oh, you have def not cornered the market. I get more messages from guys 10+ years younger than me than I do from anyone else. My favorite? The 18 year old who wanted me to teach him how to eat pussy. True story.
"Then just ignore the message" is one of those statements that seriously rubs me the wrong way - obvious, right?
1. Don’t tell me what to do. This is soooo condescending, and a totally inappropriate response to politeness, especially when I really didn’t even feel like being polite in the face of his total disrespect and violation of my wishes.
2. I don’t know if you’re going to harass me and send me message after message if I “just ignore” you and then pitch a whiny little baby-fit about how I could at least let you know I’m not interested, or if you’re going to do the exact opposite and get all bent out of shape about how I should just ignore you. I can’t fucking win either way.
3. I’m not really compelled to either ignore or be polite to someone who doesn’t fit my “Looking For” requirements and who sent me a message that only says “hey” when I have said in multiple places in my profile NOT to send me a message if you don’t fit this criteria, and if you do anyway, you won’t receive a favorable response. And when the first line of my profile states to read my entire profile before messaging me. But, hey, I was polite to this guy, and I’m rewarded with “what does that mean?” and the equivalent of “how dare you try to be polite instead of ignoring me”. So, yes, that rubs me the wrong way.
4. Although his first message wasn’t abusive, telling ANYONE to ignore a treatment of them that disrespects them implies consent of that treatment, which has major implications for abuse and how other people think they can treat you. So, I’m going to stand up for myself and call people out when they treat me in an unacceptable manner. Sorry, not sorry.
Also, this dude believes that the Earth is bigger than the sun. Just saying.
My obvious attempt to gross him out so he’d leave me alone didn’t work. I can smell the desperation from here, folks. Let’s see if the direct approach works better.
Also, that whole “I wish I could take care of u” thing from a total stranger is so beyond creepy, I just wanna go into wall-punching mode here.
