"Stuck up"

"... to the generally well-intentioned men in my life, please consider this: no matter what I accomplish or how self assured I am feeling, the dickheads of the world will still believe they have a right to demand my time and attention, even when I want to be alone. They will still insist I be polite and cheerful, even while they make me uncomfortable and afraid. They will still comment about my body and allude to sexual violence, and then berate me for being “stuck up” if I don’t receive it with a sense of humor. They will still choose to reinforce their dominance with a reminder that they could hurt me if they wanted to, and that I should somehow be grateful if they don’t. This has made me defensive. It has put me more on my guard than I would like to be.
Decent male humans, this is not your fault, but it also does not have nothing to do with you. If a woman is frosty or standoffish or doesn’t laugh at your joke, consider the notion that maybe she is not an uptight, humorless bitch, but rather has had experiences that are outside your realm of understanding, and have adversely colored her perception of the world. Consider that while you’re just joking around, a woman might actually be doing some quick mental math to see if she’s going to have to hide in a fucking bathroom stall and call someone to come help her..."

Thank you for articulating your experience. I do hope you never experience that type of fear of being physically overpowered.

Shame on those who know yet push You to be the one to conform. Decent people won't mind your right to privacy and individualism.

Even as I try to comprehend that situation, I have to admit that, I probably can't really. The concept of physical coercion is incompatible with my desire to feel wanted, not feared.

Wow! That is really, really good! Thank you for putting this one out there for others to read and consider. And maybe some will actually take the time to think about the message and re-evaluate their attitudes........
