Pandar: The "just wait 20 years from now when no one will look at you" comments here seem to be made with a fair amount of indignance and hurt feelings. I get the impression that anyone who would say that has been the man catcalling some woman on the street


Actually, I'm the guy who's gotten laid a whole lot more now than I did years ago because of woman around 40. When I was younger I never ever could have conceived of dating someone more than about a year older than me. Lately I find I'm the one getting asked out far more often and it's almost always by a woman a few years older than me. It's not a bad thing, I met some great women, had a lot of sex and some good friendships come out of things.

I've also got woman as friends who are around that age and have heard more complaints about being invisible than anything else. The hard truth is woman are scared of being invisible and spend billions of dollars every year to avoid it. I'm not defending the guys who are jerks are grope woman's butts, but let's be real and not try to define the exception as the rule. That would be like me thinking all women are cheating liars just because my ex-wife was.

I've also never cat called a woman in my life, it always struck me as a sure way to get a woman to /not/ want to have sex with you.

Lenny_da_Hog: shastacola: Lenny_da_Hog: shastacola: God, the male butthurt comments in this thread are really pathetic. I look forward to the day when your 14 year old daughter get the shiat scared out of her by some 30 year old stranger who thinks it's his right to comment on her ass. Make sure she understands that she shouldn't dress so slutty or be so attractive.Tell her to get used to it,she's got many years of strangers with a bizarre sense of entitlement judging her attire and figure.

Yeah.

Women never judge each other on these things.

There's a difference between silently judging someone's looks and having complete strangers commenting on your "taco".but I bet you knew that.

Yeah. And it's funny that all the attractive women are only friends with other attractive women, and feel entitled to tell the others how ugly they are.

Have you never been in a high school, college campus, church, or bar?


False.

Attractive women always keep at least one fat/ugly girl around for comparative purposes.

theflatline: I am a short guy, and I held the door open for a shorter girl in a bar and she said loudly "sorry honey you have to be a least six feet to ride this"

A woman at my office constantly comments on my package "you must have steel belted underwear to hold that thing in check"

Also big guys with inferiority complexes tend to bump into you, call your shorty, buddy, big guy chief, and condescend.


ok - so one chick was rude, the woman in your office should be brought up on harassment charges and yes there are bullies in the world. Life isnt fair. But what does any of that have to do with the writer's concerns? She isnt writing about the difficulties of being a short guy. You can do that on your blog if you want.

This is an article about the difficulties of being female in our culture. Just because you're not happy in your skin has nothing to do with the very real problems women face every day from harassment.

2013-01-19 10:40:07 AM  
The social convention is that men approach women, and not the other way around. So men deal with rejection, and women deal with unwanted advances. The unintended consequence appears to be that women find themselves victims of men who take the "approach women" part to the extreme. The complaint in the article is one about drunks, bros, teens, drug addicts, etc - all people who have poor judgment. If the tables were turned and women were expected to approach men, the "psycho hose-beast" stories would be norm.

I'd imagine women would feel less threatened than insulted if this country took rape seriously, but there's a particular political party that seems hellbent on making sure that doesn't happen.

Yea, because the last guy who groped my ass in a crowded subway car wanted to know what I thought of the dual Higgs discovery, you moron.

Do you think that this doesn't happen to men? When I was younger, I had my ass groped (without my consent) a number of times. I imagine that men who are more attractive then me have experienced this even more.

Groping a woman carries the implicit threat of rape in a way that a woman groping a man doesn't. However uncomfortable you felt being groped, remember that women are taught that it's their fault they got groped, that all men are groping raping monsters and it's the woman's fault if they let them get close.

For you, it was the simple act of violation of your body. For women, it's that AND a reminder that their body's positive assets belong to society.

While I agree with you completely you are assuming it was a woman who groped him. However the point still stands that far more women get raped then men and it is a much bigger threat getting your ass grabbed.

The thing is every single woman I know has had to deal with the potential for sexual harassment as an ongoing part of her daily life. And even though I have reached the supposedly "invisible" age I still have to deal with that shiat. And I assure you I am thoroughly average in appearance. OTOH my hubby who is very tall and very handsome has never ever been sexually harassed.

Are you sure he'd tell you if he was?

Why wouldnt he? Were both adults. *shrug*

It might mean you don't win, though. *sigh* Now you go home, and you decent people. Be decent.

quickdraw: ExperianScaresCthulhu: quickdraw: ExperianScaresCthulhu: Men are graded on their height. Women can control all of the above. Men can not control their height.

So your point is that you are judged on one physical attribute and women are judged on dozens of them - some of which they can control? And your using that to show how mens lives are just the same as womens?

Women can control those 'dozens of things'. Men cannot. Bottom line. Women have it easier than men when it comes to using the softer skills to get what they want. Also bottom line.

Shorter men are screwed in ways the 'nice guys' look at, shake their heads and sigh saying 'there but for the grace of God..' You're right that no, men's lives and women's lives are not the same. But it's not like men don't face their own kinds of harassments, rejections, and attempts by others to overpower them on the daily. Shorter men are going to experience it more than taller men. And, unlike women, they have no social outlets and no social sympathy for fighting against it. Shrug.

I get it yes - it sucks to be a short guy. What does that have to do with never feeling safe when you leave the house just because of your gender? Do people openly mock you for your height as an adult? Do they yell about how youre the perfect height to suck their dick? Because those are the things that happen to short women.


Shorter men can be rendered invisible in the presence of taller men. Women render shorter men invisible in the presence of taller men. Women can subconsciously socially castrate shorter men while in the pursuit of taller men. Is it worse to be openly mocked in words, better to be mocked by actions?

Nobody's blues are the same, but they're still the blues. That's all.

It may be regional.  I live in the South.  There's a certain gentility factor: women who work in my office have the door held open for them, men wait for them to exit the elevator before exiting themselves, that sort of thing.  There is a sexism at work there, but only the passive kind only your most angry feminists get worked up about.

I can only imagine that some lout who groped a woman exiting an elevator would probably find himself leaving the elevator with a few broken fingers.

Does it disturb you that we think like this? That we have to think like this?

I do find it disturbing that the author thinks like that. She does not have to. She talks about the things she does to protect herself because she's sure she's hurtling towards her rape moment, then notes that when her rape moment came she didn't get raped.
If rape didn't exist, would she (or anyone at all, male or female) no longer need to concern themselves with assault? Would she stop being afraid of men if they were only capable of beating the crap out of her but not raping her?
As long as she carries the mindset that every man is Schrodinger's rapist (yes, I've read that ridiculous essay, too) then the only acceptable behavior from any man is to pretend they don't see her.
I don't suggest that she, or any woman, should have to put up with unwanted advances or aggressive behavior, or worse, from men. I just don't subscribe to the idea that being convinced she's eventually going to be raped makes all men guilty of causing her to feel that way.

Sexual Assault/harassment for males is generally harder to report and more Than likely under reported. Men may feel less than a man if they report it or feel it'll be ignored by society since "it doesn't happen to men'. Studies show that men are, however, likely to report it to an unknown individual (say a hotline resource) than a loved one for they would fear being judged

Here's another fun game:  Try to spot the false equivalency fallacy in WhippingBoy's posts.  Oh...game over.  I win!

ExperianScaresCthulhu: quickdraw: ExperianScaresCthulhu: quickdraw: ExperianScaresCthulhu: Men are graded on their height. Women can control all of the above. Men can not control their height.

So your point is that you are judged on one physical attribute and women are judged on dozens of them - some of which they can control? And your using that to show how mens lives are just the same as womens?

Women can control those 'dozens of things'. Men cannot. Bottom line. Women have it easier than men when it comes to using the softer skills to get what they want. Also bottom line.

Shorter men are screwed in ways the 'nice guys' look at, shake their heads and sigh saying 'there but for the grace of God..' You're right that no, men's lives and women's lives are not the same. But it's not like men don't face their own kinds of harassments, rejections, and attempts by others to overpower them on the daily. Shorter men are going to experience it more than taller men. And, unlike women, they have no social outlets and no social sympathy for fighting against it. Shrug.

I get it yes - it sucks to be a short guy. What does that have to do with never feeling safe when you leave the house just because of your gender? Do people openly mock you for your height as an adult? Do they yell about how youre the perfect height to suck their dick? Because those are the things that happen to short women.

Shorter men can be rendered invisible in the presence of taller men. Women render shorter men invisible in the presence of taller men. Women can subconsciously socially castrate shorter men while in the pursuit of taller men. Is it worse to be openly mocked in words, better to be mocked by actions?

Nobody's blues are the same, but they're still the blues. That's all.


So you go into every thread about a serious issue of widespread social injustice to complain about how it sucks to be you because youre a short white guy with a job? Your life sucks because you are ridiculously self-obsessed - not because you are short.

DO NOT WANT Poster Girl: Frederick: So being really attractive is a two sided coin, eh?  Who woulda thought.

Of course on the other side of the coin is; greater salaries,  undeserved promotions, more lenient sentences, ugh, lets stop the list there.....

I wonder why your article didnt mention how your husband deals with your attractiveness?

Fark you. Attractive women are not the only women who deal with farkupitude from guys. I got the same crap this woman got, either of the same type, or worse, the same experience not tempered by a pretty face. If you're female, you're fair game, out there in the world of assholes.

And her husband? Really?

Go EABOD.


I expect to hear from some pretty defensive guys, but I wasn't expecting it right from the beginning.

/Now let's see if I managed to avoid filter pwnage.
