Elevatorgate was interesting. I didn’t add comments anywhere except on friends’ facebook pages about it. As one with a long and depressing history of being ignored by the opposite sex, it was interesting to read about women getting fed up with male attention and the shit-storm that resulted.
Maybe it’s because I don’t fit the cultural standard of beauty, or maybe I give off some anti-social vibe, but nobody hits on me in elevators – or anywhere else – at any time of day or night. I have no idea what it’s like to be admired by random strangers who’ll actually be bold enough to admit it, whatever the consequences. It’s nothing I feel comfortable doing to someone else, hence my singleness, I guess. I’m not much of a risk taker and risk of rejection is nothing I feel like gambling on right now. It’s too easy to “win” that when I play and the reward doesn’t seem worth the emotional price right now.
Something more on an actual topic will be posted tomorrow.
