Sexist or Gentleman?
People have some strong opinions over this random note from a self proclaimed nice guy. The note was left randomly in a dorm—and although we have to assume the intentions were in the best place it seems although people are finding it quite offensive
The note reads:
I get it.
You don’t want a pleasant evening chat.
You don’t want a gentleman to walk you to your car.
You don’t want a friendly dude to help you carry your groceries… or hold open the door… or crush the life out of other men that would do you harm.
Fine – fear the good guys… I guess we’ll have to just suffer through watching you get broken over and over by the scum you think you love.
But I want you to know – it’s not easy and it hurts to see you fall.
Give the good guys a chance to help you be less afraid of the world.
Of course we don’t need a man to make us feel less afraid of the world. I also don’t need a stranger to walk me to the car, and if you open the door for me, I will smile and say thank you—not because I couldn’t do it myself, but it is a nice human thing to do.
