It’s gotta suck being in the “dating world” these days.
I mean first of all if you are so called “CIS-Male” and of European decent in the mid 20’s it gotta be absolute hell.
According to the current political climate you cannot be offended against. You are male therefore you cannot be sexually attacked or offended, you have “white privilege” and that can be just about anything. And if you are straight your mere existence is offending to all the myriad of “genders” out there.
On top of that if you dare to approach a person of the opposite gender at say a drinking establishment and venture to strike up a conversation in order to get to know the lady in question be aware! Be very aware!! If your approach is not seen in favorable light you are either assaulting and raping her just by being in the same room, or at least have groped her and your details will be posted everywhere by this #metoo supporter in hopes of ruining your career and get you fired and make your life even more miserable. All because your pick-up line sucked.
This goes on and on…. and gets worse and worse….
What will the future bring? I know sanity is too much to hope for.
Since writing this post I have seen two different articles online eluding to same conclusions.
The NewYork Times article about Unintended Consequences of Sexual Harassment Scandals and payscale.com article about Unexpected Consequences: How #MeToo Might Actually Hurt Women
