Every time these experiments come up where a straight man pretends to be a woman on a dating site, they are shocked at just how disgusting other dudes are. We get it, you’re surprised because you don’t get the same thing when you’re a straight guy online ever.
I’m not begrudging them for wanting to walk a mile in a woman’s online dating shoes because it is a really bad experience for a lot of us. But how many times do you have to do this to get the point, and how many times do we have to give you a special cookie for “finally getting it”? It sucks. It’s degrading and dehumanizing. At one point it made me feel so bad about myself, that I felt like I was nothing better than a placeholder for penises. Guys who do these experiments may see that on the surface, but they also don’t seem to get to the point of seeing just how hurtful it becomes when it’s all the time.
Anyway, that’s my rant for the day.
