When men make you feel unsafe
This is to the men who think it is okay to try to pick up women on this platform.
This is not a dating site. This is not the place for you to pop up in my inbox with a "hello" in the hopes that I will entertain some kind of conversation with you. What are you hoping will happen?
I would be more inclined to think this an actual conversation popping up if I had a random man or woman who is part of one of my communities messaging me with real concerns, or reaching out to discuss a common illness and find support.
This is a safe community of people who struggle with very real illnesses and disabilities. A space where people come when they are vulnerable or want to share their thoughts, maybe foster some positivity. I come here to find support and a safe space where I know others understand what I am going through.
Shame on you for your revolting lack of manners and empathy. If you want to pick up women who are clearly in your class - go visit your local dive bar or sign up for a cheap dating site. But don't, DON'T, feel that it is okay to step into my safe space and try to hit me up.
