What you’re about to get is a free lesson on human behavior.
Harvey Weinstein. Kevin Spacey. Bill Cosby. R Kelly. Countless others. The past couple of years have seen the investigation and exposure of powerful men who’ve gotten their kicks preying on women through manipulative, predatory behavior. In that time we’ve also seen droves of women (and men) casting this evil into the light and letting it burn like the garbage mountain pyre it has always been.
And yet as soon as I allow myself to think that society has inched its way out of the dark ages, men like you claw out of the woodwork, and I’m reminded that the disciples of Pastor Hokage still walk among us.
I, a male, am writing this to hopefully bypass the flimsy defense you’ve fastened to your worldview — one which assumes that women are over-emotional creatures while men are unerringly logical. Maybe PUA Academy taught you this. So what do you make of me, then? Will you admit that I’m being logical? Or will you bend to the reality that there exist men who react to your whack-ass buffoonery with a rage similar to what you’ve seen in women?
