My understanding of the word Harassment must be all messed up. I always thought saying ‘good morning’ was what civil, polite people did but I was all wrong! According to this video common greetings and attempts to talk to someone by saying ‘hello’ or ‘good morning’ or ‘how are you’ are harassment whereas completely ignoring people and failing to acknowledge them at all is perfectly acceptable and not at all impolite or uncivil.
Not including all the ‘hey baby’ bits which are a bit dodgy (by which I mean probably bad game – although, I guess ‘hey baby’ wouldn’t be so common if it didn’t work) here is a short list of phrases and words now considered harassment:
– Have a nice evening
– Good Morning
– How are you this morning?
– God bless
– Have a good day
– How are you doing?
– How are you? Good?
And if you say hello to someone and they refuse to acknowledge you – treating you like shit to be stepped over -to call them out by saying “someone’s acknowledging you” is harassment too.
I suppose we should just remember that greetings are harassment now.
If that’s not enough stupid feminist nonsense for you, you’re in luck. There’s more….
“Release the suppressed footage of white men harassing Shoshana Roberts so that Hanna Rosin can re-edit the video”
That’s right! Some dastardly person has edited out all the white men from that video of harassment (harassment being men trying to engage a woman in conversation by use of civility and common greetings). And the petitioners want it re-edited to show all those low-life white men and the harassment they inflicted upon the poor woman. I personally can’t wait for the re-edit as it will doubtless show such horrendous behaviour as:
– Commenting on the weather
– Saying ‘please’ and ‘thankyou’
– Saying ‘may I help you?’
– Asking for the time
– Asking for directions
– Saying ‘excuse me’
– Being baffled by haughty demeanor
– Thinking quietly to oneself
Unless those damn white men aren’t impulsive enough to even greet a stranger with ‘good morning’. Anyway, for no particular reason, here’s another video:
And an old SNL skit:
I wonder what kind of world these people want? I guess it must be one where no man ever talks to any woman he doesn’t already know. Or one where the man has to wait until the woman indicates that he is allowed to approach… Like the god damn Queen of Sheba or something. And I guess in this world everyone would walk around in public without acknowledging any other human being… No eye contact, no smiles, no ‘good morning’, no ‘excuse me’, certainly no compliments of any sort, and no greetings or chit chat or… Anything really. Just blank faced people walking from somewhere to somewhere else and each ignoring all. The feminist utopia… Depressing.
Move to a country where the women smile. That’s my advice. Perhaps somewhere with thirteen types of smile?
