You don’t like women; you just like sex

“Why can’t I get a date?” some men ask. “I like women and I’m a nice guy.”

Then I see them post jokes where the punchline is some variation of “go make me a sandwich” — or they degrade Hillary Clinton’s looks instead of her politics — or they use words like “feminazi” to describe women who support equality.hugh-hefner-how-do-you-get-so-many-bitches

While I hold that nothing should be free from jokes and satire (and yes, I have found some truly offensive things hilarious before and so have you, admit it), when I see you post these kinds of “jokes” over and over again, ┬áit tells me something. People who say “Hey, it’s just a joke” don’t realize how much the kind of joke you tell says more about you than anything else.

And what it tells me is that you don’t really like women; you just like sex with women. It’s not the same thing.

Maybe if you started to think of them as people deserving of respect, even when you disagree with them, you might get more dates and more long-term relationships. Maybe you’ll be more attractive to them if you build them up instead of tearing them down. I mean, isn’t that how you would like to be treated?

It’s not that hard of a concept, really.
