Smackledorfer: No, but neither would he make a federal case out of it.

He would probably do some fun light flirting and enjoy the attention despite not having interest.

He definitely wouldn't run to the world as though being hit on is the same as a continued pattern of harrassment.


While I agree with the sentiment, the 300lb goddess is more likely to give up and not be as aggressive as the balding dude who needs Rush viagra. More importantly, most guys should able to outrun/fight her off if she goes too far.

It doesn't apply to every case but women do have more to fear on average.

True, but look at tfa; a woman biatching about a single email. One email she can delete and even block. How terrible for her.

I am not defending actual harrassment here.


Generally, socially minded women talk about anything and everything. Writing about it is just an extension of that. It's how women bond, no joke. They tell each other stories that may seem inane or silly on objective observation but its not the content that's the critical part...it's the empathy and relation of the story to the women doing the exchange. In print, women who engage each other that way read such things and understand that this is an amusing and annoying "shared experience". People who don't 'get' this mode of communication...understandably...think its trivial.

Secret, straight guys. Don't want to be in friend mode? Don't engage women in empathic banter, because that level of friend doesn't often cross over into romance. That's why the asshole guys end up with girls. Women love trying to crack into a guy to get him to "relate" to her on that level and if you make it easy then you're no conquest. Even if you're the most sensitive man in the world, if you want a social butterfly as a GF, act as if you don't understand her. She'll only want that in flashes later.

Bisu: Oh noes! I'm given things my whole life (including jobs) because of my looks, but I can't bear to have the attention from men I'm not interested in!

Honey, I'll gladly trade places with you. If attractive women knew what it was like to never be given anything because of their looks, they wouldn't complain.


Stranger: "wanna fark?"

Hottie: "No".

Stranger: "biatch!"

Repeat.

Its seems that many (most?) men are unaware of how creepy they are when they hit on women at inappropriate times.

At a bar after work?  Go ahead!

Almost anywhere else?  Your advances are unwelcome, and you ought to know that already.

Most women get hit on all the time, and it's extremely annoying.  If you don't see how that would be annoying, then you're indulging in your male privilege.  Not that there's anything wrong with having that privilege, of course.  Just be aware of it, and stop pretending that your experience is the same as women's experiences.  Getting hit on when you're trying to do some mundane task is not fun.

Rule number one of not being creepy if you show interest in a woman.

-Be attractive. Don't be unattractive.


And no. Men generally don't get creeped out by unattractive women coming on to them. They just say no, or have a few more drinks until it isn't a problem.

So if a guy was being hit on by a grotesque 300 lb. drunk-off-her-ass 50 year old woman full of wrinkles and in a skin-tight dress, he would be all over that?

A brief poll amongst Jezebel staffers found that most of us have used social media to flirt.

There is a way for even us ugly guys to hit on women without being creepy.

OhioUGrad: but then what would women have to biatch about...it's always something....ever noticed anymore if you're even polite to women a lot of them take that as them being hit on.....stupid biatches with SUPER overinflated egos.


I think that's true for people in general. I often root for the underdog and as such make a point to say hello or a friendly word to people who are quieter and less outgoing. At work this has lead to a couple men thinking I wanted them. They didn't seem to notice that I extend that courtesy to everyone. Regular men don't hit on me but those ones do after one conversation.

I'm married, so hitting on me at any time would, indeed, be a mistake.  If a woman were to hit on me (which never happens anyway), I'm fairly certain my wife would have a flashback to her military training and kill her on the spot.

If a girl is attracted to me, sometimes she'll let me put my penis into her. If she's not attracted to me and I try that, it's all like "I'm calling the cops" and "*psssst* pepper spray to the motherfarking face". Women are mysterious indeed.
