Tatterdemalian: A female acquaintance of mine wanted me to take her out to a local gay bar. When I asked why, she said, "So you can see what it's like being flirted with by people you don't want to have sex with."

I replied, "How about I *not* go to the gay bar, so I don't give any of the guys the impression that I'm looking for a one night stand."

Everywhere I go, people hassle me for my massive dong. Why, just the other day I was in Target, idly browsing the aisles, when an 8 yr old girl grabbed her mom's hand and went "Mommy, look at that man's peeeeeeeeennnnnniiiiiisssss." Mommy's face got embarrased, and I watched her eyes track down to my crotch where they got very wide. "Oh my" she said. Still staring at my crotch she said "that's some equipment you got there." Her daughter put in "Mommy, his balls are huge too".

I cannot tell you how angry this makes me, as it happens everywhere I go. Women point and whisper to each other. They'll come up and ask me "is that thing real?" They'll stare obviously at my crotch when I trying to complete a simple farking transaction with them. Some of them get bold, and ask if they can touch it, and some just reach out and grab it. They catcall all the time.

My friends have told me that if I want to stop being harassed and looked at, I should stop wearing skintight pants and my bulge enhancing underwear, and I should not go out of house wearing nothing but leggings.

But I maintain that it is the fault of society. I have a right to wear whatever I want, deem comfortable or fashionable, and I take it as a woman's responsibility to control herself and not stare at my junk. I didn't give you permission to look or comment, so you don't have that right, ladies.

THE GREAT NAME: Pincy: THE GREAT NAME: Pincy: Comedian Ever Mainard sums up this mindset in her excellent bit about the fact that women are constantly aware that "their rape" could happen at any time. She says, "The problem is that every woman has that one moment when you think, here's my rape!

Just asked my wife about this. At just over 40 she's had two of these moments that she can recall. That sucks.

So now a woman doesn't even have to be raped to be a victim of rape? Get real. Things happen that scare us sometimes.

Did I say she was a victim of rape? NO. I said she thought she was going to be raped. One if definitely worse than the other but it still sucks that women have to constantly be on their guard.

As a man, I can honestly say that I have never once thought to myself "I think I'm going to be raped". My guess is the percentage of men who have never had this feeling is much much higher than the percentage of women. To pretend otherwise is ridiculous.

Men have to be constantly on guard about the thread of a false rape accusation. A successful false rape accusation is just as bad as a rape and so the fear is just as legitimate.


Ya, I know when I'm walking down the street at night I'm constantly on my guard for roving packs of women accusing me of raping them.

You can't troll a thread where the most blatantly ignorant opinions are already being expressed in earnest, dude. You can't make a sh*thouse smell worse.

I'm in a commited relationship with a woman 8 years older than me. He's not trolling, it's true. She's old enough that she fears not being attractive on a regular basis. She's real enough that she'll flat out admit that she doesn't want gross dudes oggling her. If an attractive man checks her out or compliments her, it makes her feel great because it means (on a genetic level at least) that she's viable. Basic programming at it's finest.

His/her name is The Troll, and he is always and forever trolling. You know this, or ought to.

Nothing in your second paragraph is particularly relevant. Your girlfriend likes being complimented, therefore what? What basic logic are you using?

That an HONEST woman will tell you: When ugly guys hit on me, I wince. When cute guys hit on me, I think for a second "I'd hit it. He has good genes". WOMEN LIE ABOUT THIS FACTOR ALL THE TIME.

Difference usually being; a mature woman values her partner more than her orgasms.

Can you truely get people of low IQ and gross ignorance that also happen to be true believers, can you get them to actually acknowledge fact?

I'm of the opinion, that no, it cannot be done. Look at Tirob's mess of law interpretation above. A general insistence that it is a catch-all, despite many supreme court cases saying otherwise.
All other examples being too biased on your part, you can always look to SkinnnyHead and SteveB and IDW as prime examples of what it is that you're doing wrong here as well.

Some of you really are just not capable of handling rational thought, so in lieu of real discussion, we're left to entertain ourselves however we see fit.

Men catcall to each other talking shiat about each other. Catcalls are steam release. They're annoying as fk. But that's not rape. Like Bunner said, above, it's about the reaction. Witty people get props. People who try to be witty but fail get laughed at as well as continued annoying attention. People who ignore are forgotten within seconds, for the next target. People who make a show of being offended get laughed at and continued annoying attention.

People who show fear get it worse.

It's annoying, it sucks, it's a drain -- but it's not rape.

We don't get all victimy like half the women in this thread seem to think is the thing to do.

Only if it is a disruption or as the name of the situation is used, a disturbance is caused. One single person, even a few does not constitute a disturbance unless they are all that is present. You've got to upset the public at large for it to count as a public disturbance. It's meant to keep the peace in places of large numbers and limit people who are disruptive to large groups, not pamper an offended individual.

I guess the gender-reversed issue would be this:

Imagine that women think it's funny to hit strange men in the nuts if they're not paying attention when they walk by. The woman's girlfriends giggle when she does it, the men glare after they've been hit and shuffle off.

The men try to explain to women that it HURTS when women hit them in the nuts. The women explain that guys are asking for it when they're walking without holding an object or their hands in front of their crotches when they're walking down the street.

Men say they're NOT ASKING FOR IT just because they're swinging their arms at their sides as they walk down the street, and women say, hey, you'll get the right to stop getting hit in the nuts when you stop getting paid 25% more than women and stop discriminating against women when considering management positions.

onyxruby: gilgigamesh: t 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

When I was about 22 or so I held the door open for a woman with a large armful of binders (10 inch stack). I walked on and she called out demanding that I stop. I was chewed as she explained that she had 'two perfectly good working arms' and started chewing me out in the hallway in front of everyone as she busily declared I was a sexist pig.

I was working for very well known company in their headquarters building, my office happened to be right near human resources. Turned out she worked in human resources and she decided to go full bore feminazi on me.

I was formally written up for sexual harassment, I was forced to go to sensitivity training where I was taught that as a white male that I am inherently evil. I was told that if there was ever another incident I would be fired. My career in that corporation was ruined, all for a woman that I never talked to, touched, or even gawked at. Literally all I did, all I was accused of doing, was holding the door open for her.

For years after that I refused to hold the door open for anyone woman at work, letting it shut behind me without care. Now I know better, but when your young your easy prey for someone like that.

That's right. Men have no issues or problems of their own, and should feel ashamed for suggesting that they do. The life of every man is filled with constant wine (I mean "whine" - amirite??) and roses.


Don't be (pretend to) be stupid. No one is saying guys don't have problems.

umad: Parmenius: I have  never treated women -or anyone else- as depicted in tfa, but I've certainly had to deal with the effects  of their foolishness.  And, with rare exceptions, if someone is behaving with all the civility of a gutter snipe it is a man doing it.  I really dislike having to prove that those jackasses don't represent my gender, and threads like this do not help.

Neither have we, you idiot. Maybe, just maybe, that is why we get a tad fed up with constantly being accused of it.

A female acquaintance of mine wanted me to take her out to a local gay bar. When I asked why, she said, "So you can see what it's like being flirted with by people you don't want to have sex with."

I replied, "How about I *not* go to the gay bar, so I don't give any of the guys the impression that I'm looking for a one night stand."

/she never spoke to me again

Interesting how you assume that the harassment would be from a man.

quickdraw is a misandrist who thinks only men can do bad things.

The Voice of Doom: quickdraw
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.

One rule of essay writing I learned in school: if you've several arguments for your position, put the strongest one or the one that you want to stick with people at the end.
Look at the last paragraph of that article, the one mentioning rape culture and Ask your female friends, if you have any, if they've ever..
followed by a list of things that you don't even have to ask female friends about, because even as a guy built like an NFL linesman you've done those things or at least had them on your mind.
That's the thing that will stick the most with people, be the aftertaste, when they come back here after reading the article.

It's pretty obvious to me where those comments coming from if one focuses on the last paragraph - the listed things might be worse for but they're not unique to being a woman.
No wonder that ending an article about "seeing things from the other side" with something like that is rubbing some people the other way.


I would agree with you except these are the same exact comments that come up every time an article like this is linked. You get whole posse' of guys loaded with false equivocations - whining about how tough men have it and how not all men are bad.

Actually though I am much heartened by the way Fark has evolved over the years. It used to be those kinds "Help I'm a white male being oppressed by women who dont like to be harassed" comments were 90% of a thread. Now they are only 60%.

Progress!

I never in my life have given unwanted attention to a woman wether she was attractive or not. If I see men do it in my prescence I call them out as the bullies that they are because I am big enough to stand up to them, hate bullies in all forms and in fact take pleasure in publicly humiliating them, and find this bad behaviour by some men makes it much harder for a nice, well mannered person like myself to approach women either irl or on a dating site.

That being said, this article is pretty much full of misandry and was written solely for feminist man-haters like the disgusting examples we have heard barking in this thread. Ladies, you are making things worse for yourselves by saying stupid things like "you're a man and therefore you cannot understand". You really can't tell another human being they are incapable of insight or empathy due to gender, you are the one incapable of empathy at this point but maybe if you question yourself on occasion instead of narcissitically knowing you are always right you may become wiser.

Short guy explaining how you don't have short man syndrome and then bragging about how many tall guys' wives you've slept with... you have short man syndrome. I'm sorry you feel the way you do but the problem isn't related to size, it's related to perception. You are no less a man than me because you are shorter than me but if other people try and make you feel thusly they are bullies and you should give them a good hard knee in the groin.

All property is theft, all sex is rape, all commerce is oppression. And other overwrought and painstakingly delineated college theses that stack up to f*ck all in the real world. Did we really come up with brave and empowering new world when we decided that being ladies and gentlemen was "old hat". That old hat was a pretty useful ledge in our climb out of the social primordial goo, y'all. And so far, we haven't exactly been farting rainbows on each other by declaring it irrelevant.

So glad I don't have a daughter.

I read the article expecting to roll my eyes, but found it to be reasonable. The comments in TFA were also reasonable and not too "you go girl!!", then I clicked on these comments and wondered why I come to Fark (Is it always like this? did I miss that?)
Glad to see your comment.

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.


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.

But I ain't complaining I have always had good looking girlfriends, have a hot wife, and banged a lot of tall guys old ladies.

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 and doesn't like that anyone would view this behavior negatively, and/or has felt pretty burned in the past/present when any of their attentions (regardless of politeness level) have been rebuffed because they weren't attractive enough to the other person.

Just a thought.
