Basically they are the really angry, butch-lesbians, who can't get any. Sorta like some of the girls who go to a certain affiliate college.

5:53 is right on the mark about Brescia. I couldn't believe the things I overheard at Brescia when I was there visiting my then gf. They seemed angry at men purely because men didn't respect them, while forgetting that it is their petty conjecture that turns most men off.

Feminists are not just "angry lesbians", but also equally unhappy straight women who are less than visually appealing.

Feminists have done more harm to women than anything else. They give you mixed signals- you don't need a man, but you should go out and sleep with tons of them. Ridiculous. They go against biology and all science. And yes, every feminist I've ever encountered has been an ugly, manly beotch with a permanent chip on her shoulder.- Katie

The point is you don't need a man to support you financially...clearly this leaves using them for your own sexual gain as an open option. Others include making you dinner and making themselves all pretty and pleasant when you come home from a hard day at the office. Not that you couldn't make your own dinner or get yourself off, but it's kind to let men feel like they have a use once in awhile. And we've all earned the right to be a little lazy.
Where a lot of feminists go wrong is being bitter and angry (note: a lot doesn't equal all). There's no need to rant about male sexist pigs when we all have it in us to act the same way.
Feel free to call me ugly, manly, or a lesbian (I'm not homophobic and don't get particularly offended by that label). But after years of dishing out the chauvinism, I would have thought you boys would have the balls to take it being dished back.

I will keep in mind that I'm a petty man-hating bitch when I'm railing against things like female genital mutilation and sexual abuse perpetrated by UN peacekeepers and aid workers.

Just because we haven't experienced shit doesn't mean it doesn't happen. I'm sure Rush Limbaugh knows that too, since he takes advantage of such things with his sex junkets, but admitting that would mean he wouldn't be a dick (or at least less of one.) Then where would all the crazies go to get their entertainment posing as journalism?

Then again, when I'm dealing with a really annoying guy who won't leave me alone when I tell him I'm not interested, I'm not above pretending to be either violent, or a lesbian, or both. Some people really don't get the message, and I have better things to do, like procrastinate by posting on OAW in the middle of the night during finals.

Oh, and I care about non-feminist issues too, including men, but that's not what we're talking about here.

I think if some girls have problems letting the guy know that they are not interested in them... it s girls' own problems that they are uncapable of communicating their "wishes"... Every guy I ever told off - went away. Besides, I think the most stupid bitchy thing that many girls do (and I HAVE NO CLUE WHY!) is they tell men to "f*** off" right away even if the guy just gave them a perfectly appropriate complement. The fact that there are assholes out there doenst imply that ALL men are assholes.
The idea of feminism is to be independent from men and equally respected. It has nothing to do with being bitches... And instead of finding a solution, for miscommunication, women often simply turn their anger against men. Yet, there are a lot of loving, caring, kind, smart and respecting men out there...
Besides, the percentage of "blond-big-boop-big-sun-glasses-phych-major" guys with lululemon bags is way smaller than that one of similar girls... hope u can figure the inference urself... ;)

Dear 11:11,
Since every guy you ever told off went away, maybe you could give me some pointers. When a guy hits on me and I'm not interested, I try to be polite about saying no - like maybe "no, thank you". Some guys go away, others stay around and often insist on asking why. "I'm just not interested", "I don't want to talk to you", or "please leave me alone" gets another "why?". "I have a boyfriend" gets an "Is he here? Then what's the problem?". Please let me know how I can better communicate my wishes. What am I doing that fails to let these guys know that I'm not interested in them?

Not bothering about the sarcastic tone, I will still reply...
I didn't intend to say that you are supposed to be only nice and polite. And that all the guys are sweet. Hell no.... After three polite strikes... you've gotta tell him everything u think. With the right tone... it usually works. I dunno, maybe I am always in company with guys, so others don't bother.. But many girls are bitching from the beginning, while others are being nice for too long. Neither works. And then, when you are being nice, friendly and polite - you have to mean it, and when you are telling them to "f*** off" - you have to mean it too, because otherwise, they don't see/hear/feel the difference and thus continue...

9:42,

I feel your pain. I think women like 11:11 judge other women without thinking about what may have happened that day. I am a human being, and sometimes I lose patience. If I've had a long day and I'm just trying to relax, I become progressively less polite with guys that hit on me. (For some reason, on those days, there's always a string of at least 10-15. I've counted. It's really quite remarkable, because I can't be that hot.) It's not really my job to make sure their feelings don't get hurt, and if I could put up a sign saying, "Please leave me alone. I'm not in a good mood today," I would. It's also not my problem if some people think I'm a bitch. My life doesn't revolve around what other people think. (Guys get away with this all the time, like when they proudly claim to be assholes. I'm only a bitch when, as noted above, I completely lose patience.)

Most guys will back off if you're a bitch from the beginning, but there's a few that seem to get off on it and enjoy it. Some of them came up to you in the first place to upset you. You can tell those ones from the delighted smiles on their faces. And I suspect some guys might have a weird fascination with nailing angry women.

I also don't think he should get three strikes. You told him once or twice nicely, just say, "No thank you, I'm NOT interested," and walk away. If he tries to follow you or stop you from leaving by grabbing you, you've entered completely different territory. Do whatever you deem necessary to keep yourself safe. (If he follows you around the bar, you can yell at him. If he follows you to your car, like what happened to me once, get the hell out of there.)

There's a difference between being angry with every guy you meet and being pissed off that an awful lot of guys seem to think it's their duty to convince you that you were wrong; you really DO want to go home with them! I blame society. Persistent guys are always applauded in movies and on television, but in person, it's not nearly as cool. There's also the self-centred aspect: If you went to the bar to pick someone up, clearly everyone else went for the same reason. I don't think many men go in there trying to be jackasses about this, but they are. I wish the word would get out so that they would stop doing it.

Men of Western: It's not cool. Please don't do it. And to those of you who don't do it, THANK YOU! I hope you meet many wonderful women who are interested.

Why complains THAT MUCH about being hit on? Where are these girls when they are getting hit on? Out at the bars? If you hate the world enough to shut down every single guy who talks to you because you are "in a bad mood", stay home and sulk instead of getting dressed up and going out. Let's be honest, Richmond Row is a meat market, and if you are out on a weekend (and moderately attractive), you are bound to get hit on. Enjoy the attention and stop complaining!

Here's the thing:
Not everyone goes out looking to hook up. Quite a few of us just enjoy going out for drinks with our friends and dancing; we should be able to do that without being hassled.
I think what most girls are complaining about are the guys that don't go away. I have a boyfriend, and that line really doesn't deter that many guys, even though it should. Even before I met him though, I didn't go home/try to meet guys at the bar. It's kind of dismissive, but after having guys put their hands up ALL THE WAY up my skirt after dancing for not even one song (and it's not like we were making out, or there was any precedent, we weren't even dancing that close and he was trying to get his fingers under my panties) and being stalked by the one guy who I gave my number to, quite frankly, I don't think it's worth it to attempt to meet anyone new there. So I only talk to my friends, or friends of friends. I know there's plenty of nice guys I'm missing out on meeting, but it seems that the guys that hit on girls the most are generally either frat guys, really arrogant or really skeezy. I can do without all that, especially considering I have a boyfriend anyway.
And then there's the safety thing. At least once a week I get an e-mail about a new date rape drug, a new case of kidnapping/rape/murder of some girl who let her guard down. It's scary guys, and as a small girl who's not very strong, it's better to be safe than sorry and just deter bad things from happening.

It s a long way from your waist to your panties, you know... He started going there - and you haven't stopped him - so don't complain... You gave the green light yourself.

Same with phone numbers... he probably was no magician and haven't magically found your number yourself...

p.s I am not denying that both were assholes, and whoever else...

The number was given out sure. But calling multiple times a night, looking me up on facebook, finding out from my profile where I worked and then showing up at my job all the time, following me home from campus on the bus to find out where I lived...
I can't say that I brought all that on myself just by giving out a number to a guy who seemed normal at the time.

^the problem with guys like that is that they give every normal guy who tries to meet somone at a bar a bad name...

10:49, I don't mind getting hit on. I do mind men who refuse to listen when I tell them I'm not interested. Am I out at the bars when I get hit on? Sometimes. Sometimes I'm on the bus. I understand that people want to get laid, but asking an extra 15 times is not going to make that happen.

Why would they follow you home when they can just used Canada411.ca reverse lookup?

I can. You brought all that on yourself just by giving out a number to a guy who seemed normal at the time. See? It was easy.

Only thing I will say is 1:10 is very right with some things. One thing girls hate (at least every girl I know) is having guy just grind up behind you without asking if you want to dance first. I have had the same boyfriend since before I could go to the bars and I never go to the bars now because I'm tired saying "I have a boyfriend" and having to follow that with "fuck off" because people don't get the hint. But it depends on the bar. Jacks has ALWAYS caused a problem for me. I never leave Jacks without a guy swearing at me or one of my friends because we all have boyfriends and had to tell him to fuck off because stating that we aren't interested or have boyfriends is not enough. Honestly, I have never once sworn at a guy unless he doesn't get the picture when I flat out say no. Than again my boyfriend gets the same thing from single girls when he goes out so I'm not strictly complaining about guys. People, if you go to the bars a someone tells you that they have a boyfriend/girlfriend they my be lying, but they would not say that if they wanted you to stick around so just get the hint.

And I'm done the rant.
