Are any lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders, queer’s etc at this point of disconnecting from straight people? I have to protect my family and self from homophobic abuse and heterosexual men who think they can change me. I’ve gotten a shyt load of negative comments from straight people in generally. I’m at the point of disconnecting from straight people and I find ignoring men helps ( sexual harassment, groping , sexism and discrimination mostly came from men) .. who told men they can change lesbians and secondly as a gay person I’ve called sexual harassment on men legally. I’ve had straight men tell me they’ll rape me back straight. Are there laws to protect the LGTBQ community? I don’t want my kids around straight people at this point..1 Answer3 days ago
In your experience do women generally lack the ability to precisely describe what makes them feel uncomfortable around a creepy man?
I empathize with women who are objectively weaker than men around people who wish to cause them harm.
I have experienced countless instances of women saying things to the effect of, "He was so creepy.", "He made me feel uncomfortable.", "He was so weird." etc.
In an attempt to avoid an awkward silence, I usually respond with something like, "What did he do?" I am genuinely curious about the behaviors these women observed.
Every time they shrug and can't think of a single trait or behavior that he exhibited...
I will continue to support womens' gut instincts, but I don't think they realize what a disservice it is to their cause of bringing awareness to creepy behavior that they can't express themselves.1 Answer3 days ago
Creepy men show more interest than women have, women are more interested in attractive men, so unattractive men are more likely to be creepy?
People often refute the claim that women find unattractive men disproportionately creepy.
They say that the main factor in a man being creepy is his display of interest in a woman who isn't interested in him. There are plenty of other factors, but they boil down to disproportionate interest.
Here's the thing: If a man is attractive, he will have to be creepier than an unattractive man before he is considered to be a creep.
So yes, unattractive men are more likely to be considered creepy, even if their behavior doesn't reach the higher standard for creepiness that's applied to attractive men.
That's not saying that attractive men can't be creepy or that unattractive men are always creepy.1 Answer3 days ago
Some claim "nice guys" ONLY want sex. Do you think they want sex like other men, but being rejected a lot shines a light on their bitterness?
...a bitterness that more dominant/assertive and/or physically attractive men don't experience as often.
Perhaps "nice guys" are just rejected by women more often than other men for their generally more predictable nature.
Even if women don't have a double standard and it's the nice guys' bitterness that they denounce, how much rejection for being yourself can we readonably expect people to absorb before they display these feelings?1 Answer3 days ago
What do you think about men considering most men are very visual, and due to hormones think about sex often? Does it bother you that men are so visual and think about sex so much? Do you think men are bad for this?1 Answer3 days ago
I think couples that are the most happiest seem to be are if the dude is big and built and the girl is feminine hot. I've always been small (but have good looking face) and just embarrassing that when looking back when I was younger, there were girls I could've flirted with but didn't. I didn't think it would be fair for the girl to date a small guy. I wish I was bigger and taller.2 Answers3 days ago

I asked several women on different occasions the same question and got the same answer from them. I asked them if they were walking alone at night in the dark anywhere would they be more afraid if they were stalked by one man or a group of ten women. All women answered by one man. I asked them why then they said because it’s scarier and more dangerous to be stalked by men than by women and that women don’t intimidate them, they said that they aren’t afraid of women. Is one man really more dangerous than a group of ten women?3 Answers3 days ago
