Post Office boxes are a godsend for people like that. A mail redirect can work even better if you think they'll get nasty over you not giving them a physical address.

I had issues with an ex who turned creepy and possessive, but I had to remain in contact because we were selling a block of land we co-owned. I wanted to do it all through lawyers, she demanded my address or she wouldn't continue with the sale.

So I gave a false address* to her then went to the post office and paid for a mail redirect from that false address to my real one. Privacy preserved and drama averted.




* The address was to a real house, but in a different state.

No but seriously, how the gently caress are we supposed to pronounce things then? What should someone who's not Mexican say when they say taco? TACK-oh? Tuh-KOH? "TAH-co" is how it's pronounced, they pronounce it in every single Taco Bell commercial that way. It's the name of one of the whitest franchises in the US. And I pronounce a quesadilla "keh-sah-deejah" because that's how it's loving pronounced.

Should I call gyros "JIE-rose" and croissants "crescent rolls"?

No, you're totally missing the point. Here, watch this educational video and see if you can't work out what we're trying to get across:

i feel like there's a difference between just pronouncing a spanish word correctly and talking like michael scott's impersonation of a mexican and you guys are talking past each other a bit

This is what we've been trying to get across. It's not about pronouncing a word right, it's going out of your way to show that you're pronouncing it right and looking like a loving tool in the process.

Whenever I think of Elliott Rodgers I think of the african american pickup artist (aapua) that did a video using Elliott's videos as an example of doing everything wrong, months before anyone knew who Elliott Rodgers was. His main point was something like: this guy clearly watches a lot of anime, you can tell by the way he speaks. Anime isn't good for you, you can't go around talking like that". And it's amazing how right he was. I never made the connection between that style of speaking and anime before, but that is totally how it sounds, specifically by trying to emulate the delivery of badass smart guy type characters.

Now I want to find that video to see how anime bad guys and murder nerds talk.

Is it 'three or four words at a time with big pauses between them'?

As a veteran of retail, I can't even count the amount of times I had to relieve a cashier or tell her "Hey Steve needs you in the back" because some Nice Guy couldn't tell the difference between "It's my job to smile at you and be polite" and "I want to gently caress you, please talk to me for a long time".

And "You can't run away from me because you're working and have to be here." And "You'll lose your job if you allow yourself to show how creeped out and disgusted you are."

Every woman who has ever worked retail or as a waitress has had it happen to them. The oblivious nerd and the power tripping creep - they're everywhere.

The MRA thing is a shame because that name sticking to bunch of lovely people has pretty much tarnished every group looking to raise any awareness of men's issues as unhinged sexists.

The problem is that there are no men's movements that are actually about helping men.

I don't know who first said it, but there's a quote which goes something like:

quote:

A masculinity movement which is not mostly anti-feminist and anti-women has yet to appear


In other words, "men's rights" always end up as "women are whores". Which is a goddamn shame, because modern toxic masculinity really needs some people to step up and help the men it hurts.

they just tended to be gay or model for burberry. fyi you just need to be fashionable enough to wear whatever the gently caress you want, something that neckbeards tend to get very confused about

And some fashions simply cannot be worn by the young.

I read a study on capuchin monkeys a few years ago. I could be getting the species wrong but I believe they were capuchins. Basically, if you isolate a male capuchin and it never learns proper sexual behaviors, it'll become extremely aggressive in sexual situations. Sexual instincts and hormones are flooding their brain but they don't know what to actually do so they become aggressive towards females.

not that different from people.

Yeah, men are like dogs. If they don't get properly socialised from a young age they can turn incredibly nasty because they just don't know how to behave.

Although it really wouldn't surprise me if these creeps actually did have a literal script for talking to girls, I meant that so many of these go in one of the same few ways that you can usually tell exactly where a conversation will go after about two replies.

There're the ones who try to stick a whole thesaurus in their posts like they're trying to stun their intended. Like those guys who go hunting for worms with car batteries.

And the ones who go from 0 to 100 miles per horrible in the space of two seconds when their initial post isn't replied to immediately or the girl doesn't fall for their "charms".

Then there're the totally clueless anime kids who toss in every possible reference to the children's media they consume or their favourite rapeime.
