It’s real and it’s hilarious
“I also call it suitor abuse, in that such a woman tends to manipulate men for fun and profit by encouraging them to pursue her, then pretend she hadn’t a clue they were interested in her and shoo them away. It’s setting people up for failure, creating strong motivations and dismantling them for a perverse sense of power. Women who do this are monsters, plain and simple, and deserve to be treated accordingly. They know very well what they’re doing, and only shout the “you’re only nice to get sex” tirades to create a smokescreen while inflicting further abuse. What they don’t count on is that the men’s movement will eventually be able to, and indeed must eventually, ensure that either laws or community standards (or both) are enforced against them.”
Oh fuck no.
Look, Nice Guys™ of the world, there is something huge I need to tell you. Something mind-blowing, something out there, something a little hard to understand. Okay, here goes.
Women are people.
Hard to believe, I know, but it’s true. We women are capable of complex relationships where we have friends, lovers, husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, acquaintances, drinking buddies, co-workers, rivals, bosses, employees, fuck-buddies, pen-pals, etc, just like men! We don’t exist for the sole purpose of fulfilling your romantic desires! Plus, we also get to choose who we have relationships with, as well as what type of relationship (if any)! It is not abuse to not want to fuck someone, even if you “lead them on” by being nice to them. (Look, Nice Guys™, tell me if I need to slow down. I know this is all very new and confusing for you.)
Fortunately, for Nice Guys™ and dudebros who did not get a chance to read this reply, some other redditors chimed in:
