1. UNSOLICITED DICK PICS

“Sending unsolicited dick pics.”

2. TELLING ME TO SMILE

“Telling me to smile. Don’t tell me to smile. I don’t know you.”

3. CAN’T TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER

“The inability to take no for an answer.”

4. ‘JUST KIDDING!’

“When they say something weird or fucked up and instantly reply ‘Just kidding!’ As if they were kidding.”

5. GROPERS

“Unauthorized touching. Anyone touching someone who doesn’t want to be touched is creepy, regardless of gender. Stop acting so butthurt and keep your hands to yourself.”

6. ‘SO WHERE’S MY HUG?’

“When a guy you just met goes, ‘So where’s my hug?’ I used to be polite and tell them no, but lately I’ve resorted to just making a face until they go away.”

7. MR. SOUR GRAPES

“When you politely decline any advances and they turn into aggressive or insulting mode really quickly. Major red flag right there. Showing up at my place at weird hours without being invited. No, I will not let you into my house at 1AM.”

8. ‘YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL’ (REPEAT 500X)

“Too many compliments. Yes. You think I’m beautiful. Thank you. But I got it the first 500 times you said it.”

9. SPACE INVADERS

“A guy is only creepy to me when I have blatantly told him I’m not interested, in the kindest way possible, but he still keeps doing things like invading personal space, touching, making advances, etc.”

10. ‘SEND ME YOUR PICTURE’

“When you first start talking to a guy casually and they ask for a photo of you to save in their phone. They always say it’s for caller ID and I think it’s more along the lines of something to jack off to. This has happened to me at least three times. Go on Facebook if you want my picture, creep. I always respond with ‘I don’t send my picture to people I barely know.’”

11. ‘YOU COULD DO SO MUCH BETTER’

“Telling me “I could do so much better” when I point out my boyfriend/now husband. Gee, I wonder who you’re thinking I should be with? It’s rude and creepy.”

12. GYM LEECHES

“When I’m working out at the gym, doing some stretches on the mat and every guy will just “casually” stand nearby and stare.”

13. ‘ARE YOU ALONE?’

“When you’re out and a guy asks if you’re alone. Happened to me the other night and I nonchalantly told him I was just buying drinks for my SO and I, who was outside waiting for me, he promptly left after that.”

14. NONSTOP STARING

“I hate the nonstop staring. It happens all the time but most of the time a subway / bus ride doesn’t take that long I get off and I can flee the stare but yesterday I took a 4 hour train ride and this guy stared at me like 3/4 of the 4 hours. It was obvious that I’m not interested, it was annoying, it made me insecure…creepy.”

15. THE ESSENCE OF CREEPY

“The essence of creepy is someone trying to get close to you without your notice or consent, presumably for sexual purposes. Attractiveness, rudeness, inappropriateness, etc., can all be part of it but it’s the indirectness that makes things creepy.”

16. ‘LIKING’ ME TOO MUCH

“Adding him on FB after one date and then waking up the next morning to him liking every single thing you’ve posted between 2015 and 2014…”

17. STRETCHING THE LIMITS OF MY POLITENESS

“It makes me feel uncomfortable and it puts me in a bad position cause there are only so many times you can politely turn someone down.”

18. ‘SEXY’ TALK

“Asking personal (sexual) questions or sharing stories of the same, especially if you’re not even casual acquaintances. I know a lot of women who want to be polite but are totally creeped out by this.”

19. IGNORING CUES

“Ignoring cues/clear signals, repeated unsolicited appearance in one’s life. It’s also creepy when men overstep obvious boundaries: hitting on you or when you or they themselves are clearly ‘taken,’ hitting on you in a professional environment, hitting on a minor, etc.”

20. ‘SURPRISE!’

“Coming up behind you to “surprise” you, rather than walking straight up to you.”

21. ‘YOU LOOK HOT, AND IT’S CAUSING THINGS TO HAPPEN IN MY PANTS’

“When they tell you that you look hot, and it’s causing things to happen in their pants. Then they say that because you’re the one that they were thinking about, the boner is your problem and you are obligated to fix it.”

22. HYPNOTIZED BY BOOBS

“Talking to you while never taking his eyes off your boobs.”

23. SIX INCHES AWAY, PLEASE

“Not respecting the personal space bubble. We’re not in China. At least 6 inches away, please.”

24. ‘I’M A NICE GUY’

“When they continue to try and pursue you after you’ve made it clear you’re not interested, generally proclaiming themself as “a nice guy” who will turn on you and insult you anyway they know how as soon as they come to terms with you not wanting them. As well as leering—it’s obvious and sleazy.”

25. NOT BEING ATTRACTIVE

“Not being attractive.” TC mark

    Are you so dense that you don’t understand that men do these things because women have saddled them with the responsibility of initiating relationships and leading social interactions or else they die alone, never have sex, wives, girlfriends, or children?

    So, basically, the strong independent women in gender equality land still expect men to do all the social heavy lifting, and then they want to complain, nitpick, shame, emasculate, and police them for the way they go about it?

    This is seriously like wealthy people complaining that poor people are inconvenient for them. It’s nauseating, cruel, ignorant, depressing, and gross.
