I’m with #26. “No amount of insults constitutes assault.” I’ve also seen females rejecting males in an equally rude way. Would this give a man the right to beat her? I think the users who say she should “kick him/slap him/and so on” just promote some sort of disgusting anti-male sexism. The fact that #26 has been down voted is really sad. I have a message for the users here on FML: Hurt feelings do not justify violence! Grow up and act like responsible adults.
#123 for one, the same comments are not made about women, because you don't hit women, any man knows this, sexist or not. And secondly, what part of this dude's behavior seems adult to you? Why do you feel he deserves an adult response? He wants to act like a chikd with zero regard for the feelings of OP, so OP should act in a similar fashion, as that seems to be the be the only way to get through to him.
#138: Are you really suggesting OP should imitate the immature behaviour of this man by acting even lower than he? You seem to have a problem with the concept of appropriate responses. Violence as a response to mere words no matter how hurtful they are is surely not appropriate. Your suggestion that OP should stop acting like an adult is only a thinly veiled excuse for violent revenge but wouldn’t help anyone, and it’s dangerous. Someone who insults a women without regard to civilized standards most likely would hit back. I know and I’m glad about the statement „you don’t hit women“. However, I don’t like it because you also shouldn’t hit men, and every year countless men become victims of violence, often domestic violence at the hand of their spouses, even though this fact seems to have slipped from the public mind. Promoting double standards in public is not helpful.
I totally agree 139 1000%. There are plenty of men who would never hit a woman unless she assaulted him. Then a bad situation becomes really ugly. Once the situation turns violent typically the woman gets hurt and she has no recourse with the police if she started the physical abuse. I think the reason people find it funny to say is maybe they have never seen a woman hurt this way. Domestic violence is not ok.
What a horrible person. Kick him in the balls that will teach him.
You will find someone eventually. Unfortunately, people can be fucking assholes that are probably insecure themselves.
People fucking suck. You didn't deserve that op least now you know he's a jerk and can avoid him
What a shame. I'm sure you two would've had a whale of a time.
