I just felt like that was an appropriate title, rather than just saying “It’s hard being me”…Because although some days it is, I am SO lucky.
Anyways, completely off subject…If you are a apart of the gaming community, you have probably heard of the seriously bad overreaction people have been having over the latest “Mass Effect” game. To break it down simply, one the animators for the new game is a women, and not the only animator for the game. Even before the game has been released, people are already complaining about the animations. However, these comments have not just been plain criticism, threats, accusations of how she got her job in the first place.
Scumbags harass Woman for working on Mass Effect: Andromeda’s Animation.
Gamer’s have a really bad reputation and this situation kind of proves why girls and women just don’t want to know about the whole thing. That makes me sad, because I love to game. It’s a stereotype I really want to see go, but then again I guess, I just want that kind of attitude to go, period.
Harassment is NOT criticism.
Here I am again, feeling frustrated because no matter how many times I have rejected a guy. Apparently it is MY responsibility to make them feel better again and for months to listen to how much they like me and how strong they’re feelings are for me. Even though I have made it clear that 1) I am NOT interested and 2) I have met someone.
If I did this, I would be call ‘crazy’, ‘pathetic’ and ‘stalkerish’. Yet, if I call them that and I don’t just sit there, take it and listen to something that I think is actually unhealthy and not helpful at all, I’m a bitch. Why? Why do we just have to put up with these guys harassing us? The emotional blackmail as well! I got so fed up with one guy today I literally broke and started to lose it. When I told this guy I was refusing to talk about any-more his feelings for me (I said no to him mid-December and he knows I’m dating someone else) because it was clearly not healthy and it was clearly not helpful for him. He tried to turn it back on me “Oh, I was just asking how you were doing”. I LOST it! I have not lost it like that in a really long time.
I literally FEAR rejecting guys now, I really do fear it. I have been humiliated on Facebook because of rejecting someone, which honestly made me even MORE glad that I chose to say no to that guy. Why anyone of them (a group of people decided to tag me in a picture that basically called me a “bitch” and posted it on their Facebook, they wouldn’t have dared to post it on my own wall) would think that that would make me want to date him more is beyond me. I have had guys go off on me while in their cars, that is scary as!
Guy listen to me…Man up! Not one single girl I know finds it sexy to constantly harass us after we have rejected you, in fact, it makes us want to stay away from you even more you and humiliating us does NOT work for us! Not one single girl I know has changed her mind after you posted on her wall any type of “friendzone” meme. It makes us even more glad that we don’t choose you, except we can’t say that because we’ll be called a bitch and then have our name dragged through the mud.
