Yesterday I was sitting outside a coffee shop, eating a croissant and reading a book and minding my own business. Some guy with his friend walks by and says, “Hey! Will you be my new friend?”
“No, not today, sorry,” I respond, then immediately go back to my book.
“Aw, you’re mean,” he says. “I’m gonna go slit my wrists now.”
Fuck you, asshole, who thinks it’s okay to try to make women feel
uncomfortable and guilty just because they don’t indulge your bullshit
pick-up lines. I know this is fake suicide threat, but fuck you for
thinking that’s in any way an appropriate thing to say (loudly) to a
stranger just because you didn’t get what you want. I am sick of men
thinking they are entitled to my attention simply because they plucked
up the courage to speak words to me. I don’t owe you shit. Fuck off.
