Brace yourself folks, I’m writing about creepers again.
I’ve heard from a number of folks asking just why I talk about creepers so often, and the answer is simple:
I’m totally angling for a staff writing job at Jezebel.
OK, not really.1
The real answer, is because my blog’s purpose is to help people be better, more confident, charming, socially adept and attractive individuals. And a big part of becoming a better, more confident, charming, socially adept and attractive individual is to not be an asshole.
One of the traits that women find almost universally attractive in men is respect for women; not in the guise of paternal protection or “I totally respect your right to be slutty as it may lead me to getting a blow-job on the first date that I will later judge you for,” but genuine, honest respect. Respect for them as people. Understanding the shit that women deal with on a daily basis that men do not, by sole virtue of the fact that they are women and trying to make the world a little better and a little fairer.
Believe me, as much as I appreciate the comments and traffic I get when I write about dudes being creepy, I’d really rather not have so much material to work with. But we all have to pick our windmills to tilt at; this issue happens to be one of mine.
Which brings me to today’s topic: the infamous subreddit /r/creepshots.
