“Blow the horse you rode in on”… Everyday Sexism

 

What follows is a discourse experienced by me on facebook chat with one of those people that you’ve known forever but can’t bring yourself to delete from the ever growing friend list. And my critique of it. 
I’ve replaced his name with ‘Goon’, simply because I watched The Goonies last night. Honest.

        • give me a blow job < Okay, this is a definite demand amirite?, Bear in mind that this guy wasn’t even in the same country, but his rude demand did not call for logic.

        • Goon- what is that all about?
        • ?????
        • You really need to quit drinking and quit this ridiculous petulant demanding.
        • You are behaving like the worst type of creep out there.
        • I have already requested you did not send me messages of this nature any more, clearly you have no respect for that.
        • Sort yourself out, you are a shadow of your former self, you are behaving like a desperate moron, please take this pish elsewhere. And don’t contact me until you have sorted yourself out.

        Goon
        • Done and done. I’ve just got back from a fucked up night where I lost myself, got messed up and felt a little lonely. We are no longer friends. < Okay, so to justify the demand, he retorts with “I felt a little lonely” – at which point do feeling lonely and harassing a female acquaintance meet?- well here, in Goon’s head apparently. If someone has “lost themselves” Does oral sex help them find themselves again? Who knew?

        • Lonely?
        • Fuck off.
        • That is not how you initiate a conversation with someone.
        • learn some manners.

        • fuck you
        • fuck you
        • FUCK YO7U < Here Goon tries to invoke Prince’s trademark spelling style to gain points and win my heart. Sorry, Unless you ARE Prince or 10 years old, that is not even going to get a favourable response.
        • DONT EVEN FUCKING TALK TO ME ABOUT MANNERS < I just did.

          • fuck
          • off
          • pot kettle black>
          • how fucking dare you
          • how dare you
          • fuck off
          • and the horse you rode in on

            “Fuck off, and the horse you rode in on” < Now this bit is pure poetry, albeit unintended, I almost apologised.

            I hope you find what you need Goon, and stop needing women to be your Linus blanket.

        Obviously the picture above is me doing the very thing demanded, which I thought was a reasonable request, under the circumstances.
