Today, while riding the train home, I noticed a man who kept looking at me. Annoyed, I told him to be less obvious and to stop staring. He promptly responded, "Bitch, I'm gay, and even I can tell no one would want to look at you." FML

49 - Not MY logic. I'm just pointing out a double standard.
"Creepy behaviour" is a subjective category. We like it when people we consider attractive pay attention to us, but when it's people we don't consider attractive we call them "creepy".

Don't take it so seriously, it's just one of those things we people do.

Uhm yeah I am going to have to point out that many, many guys will whip out the "bitch I am gay card" after being caught staring at a girl and getting rejected in the same breath to mask their own embarrassment and turn it around on her it's doubtful the guy was actually gay.


Wow 112, paranoid much? Also, don't be so disrespectful. "Put the damn doughnut down..." Shut the hell up. If that's your attitude towards cops, you deserve to fend for yourself. You know where all the cops are? At work. Not with their families. I hardly ever see my dad on weekdays or weekends, and holidays, forget it. You know how many Christmases I've had with my dad? 2. Thanksgivings? 1. And he's never around on New Years because of drunk drivers and trouble makers. Rarely does he have my birthday off, and when he does, he's still on call. He always is.
Yea, I know it seems like I'm over reacting, but I can't stand people disrespecting cops, even if they were trying to be funny. He's never home because he has to protect jack offs like you, who probably calls them pigs too. You asking for their help while insulting them is fucked up.

Staring is not looking at someone for a moment. I hate it when people stare at me and for as far as I know no one likes to be stared at. And with staring I mean staring for longer than 5 seconds or so. I am really surprised that this isn't considered rude or creepy here, because I definitely consider it rude to stare at someone for a longer period of time. It makes me feel horribly uncomfortable. I mean, why would someone just stare at you? If they are interested, why don't they approach you and if they are not, why are they staring at you?
I'm talking about situations where it isn't hard to avoid looking at someone, of course.

Wow. I'm kind of surprised by the attitudes on here. If I see someone staring at me, I always just smile at them! They almost always smile back, and voila, you've had a really nice moment/connection with someone. Plus, I always consider that you might look like someone they know or they might think they know you.

I agree that staring can get annoying but like 44 said, he may have just been spacing out. What if he wasn't even staring at her? He was a bit harsh in his response but she came off as a bitch as well.

I'm pretty sure the man was just staring because he can. He doesn't need a reason to stare.. If I wanted to check if someone was a mugger, I wouldn't stare at them....

Yeah eye contact and a hi is one thing, but staring is not normal behavior people should assume is just being polite. I get stares from males and females all the time and it irritates me to the core. Take a picture.

I highly doubt people stare at you as often as you claim unless you're doing something to purposely attract their attention. People won't sit and give one person all their attention without a good reason, excluding trolls their whole existence is reasonless.

People need to learn to ease up. I mean it is just a look. Egos need to be busted like this sometimes. Just because someone is looking in your direction doesn't mean they are eying you or wanting to be with you. Sometimes they are just... looking.

#13, I can't even count how many times that has happened to me. Nothing's more embarrassing than realizing you have been staring at someone for around 5 minutes because you were zoning out and that the person you were staring at actually noticed

By  EpicSquishii  |  21

You handled your irritation at least as bitchily as he did. I feel like you were juat as wrong for assuming he wanted your crotchy regions and trying to embarrass him for it in public. YDI

Probably going to get downvoted for this, but I can sympathise with OP.
Sometimes, especially if you've had a bad day, the feeling that someone is looking at you can just make you feel really uncomfortable, to the point that you just want to yell at the person and make them stop.
OP should perhaps have been a little more delicate in her wording, but I can understand the frustration that could have prompted her to say it.
