You get texts from people you've never seen before. And you decide to fight back. And this happens:
Send me your wife? So the rules of the internet are: hide your face or brace yourself for creepers, because if you're cute, you owe it to them. I especially like this person, who did not follow me nor has ever interacted with me before, wanted me to go away after he didn't get the results he was after.
And this is just the Internet - these people exist in real life, too. These are the same people who believe women are asking for it or shouldn't dress a certain way if they don't want to be treated poorly (but careful, don't dress too frumpy, either, or you won't be taken seriously).
So this post is dedicated to all those people. The guy on the subway when I lived in DC who followed me from seat to seat. The one who couldn't make eye contact with me when I gave a presentation at a conference. Or that one who mansplained to me about how to Internet, shortly after I won social media person of the year. Or the guy at the forest preserve who followed me to my truck when I wouldn't give him my phone number after a run.
Here's to you.
(Side note: Go google "women in business meme" to try and find an image to go with this post, and you'll see exactly what the Internet thinks about women.)
