A lot of men (and probably other genders, but mostly men) like to creepily hit on people (usually women) in contexts in which it’s not ok to hit on people. (Eg: on the subway).
Girls start experiencing this before they’re considered old enough for sex ed.
Creepy men regularly do this in a way that’s slightly deniable.
Like sitting way too close. Or asking an almost innocuous thing. And it feels really horrible to be on the receiving end, but it can be hard to put your finger on why. And if you object, the man who started it will try as hard as he can to say you’re being unreasonable. Often, bystanders or people you tell afterwards will empathically agree and tell you he was just being friendly and that didn’t have to be rude.
This is not your fault. It’s not your fault that creepy guys are awful to you, and it’s not your fault that people punish you for refusing to cooperate with their creepy actions.
There is usually no polite way to object. Because they manipulate the rules of politeness so that you have to be rude to say no.
It’s ok to be rude in that situation.
Being in that situation doesn’t mean you’re a rude inconsiderate person. It means you’re asserting an important boundary in the only available way.
Most of these guys know exactly what they are doing. It’s not innocent awkwardness. It’s a different thing. It’s doing something they know they can probably get away with denying that they’ve done.
(People do sometimes do this kind of thing by mistake, too. But it’s not ok then either. And most people who do this, know damn well what they’re doing.)
honestly wasn’t expecting that post to be repesctful
I’m sorry, but I fucking hate this.
For someone who claims to have “no condescension” and “nothing but respect,” this person is awfully condescending and disrespectful.
Words/phrases here I detest: “Fatty” for shock value (tricking us into thinking this will be a mean letter), “weight of more than two of me, clinging to your bones, begging to be shaken off,” “debt of another midnight snack,” “ever-shrinking mass.”
When this author looks at this person running, clearly all they see is a person trying to lose weight — a fat person who needs to lose weight. When really, it’s none of their business why this fat person is running. Maybe they’re running to be goddamn healthy, which is not synonymous with losing weight. But all they see is someone trying to correct themselves, someone on a “journey.”
If I go out running, don’t obsessively watch me and then decide you have a lot of respect for me because, according to you, I’m “doing the right thing.” I’m not looking for your approval. Treat me like any other runner and leave me the fuck alone.
This is why a lot of fat people are afraid to work out in public. Because if we’re not getting mocked, we’re getting “Good for you!!!!” from condescending people like this.
