Don’t you just love Nice Guys? As previously discussed, a “Nice Guy” is not actually a nice guy, but a guy who thinks women are shallow bitches who get off on withholding the sex they owe him because he is too nice, or something. In an effort to expose and ridicule these messed up attitudes, someone started a blog compiling the “Nice Guys of Ok Cupid,” with their pictures and everything. Nice.
I have gone back and forth on “public shaming of individuals” as a means of combatting systemic problems. I’m not sure how effective it is, but I still don’t have a problem with it here, because these are adults who should know that everything you put on the Internet could very well pop up somewhere else on the internet. Plus, I don’t have a ton of sympathy for guys who answer “yes” to the question “do you feel there are any circumstances in which a person is obligated to have sex with you?” Maybe this blog and others like it will help these guys realize they’re thinking like rapists and cut it out before they actually rape someone, which I think we can all agree is not a very nice thing to do at all? PS: FRIEND ZONE.
