I’ve noticed a disturbing trend lately.
I’m getting more and more private IM’s lately from conservative republican christians that view my Yahoo! profile and for whatever reason, they try to get all flirty. If there was more space on the profile for information, I could throw up several paragraphs that would *insure* that this crap never happened again, but with the limited space presented, I apparently come off as a ‘freaky, stylie hot republican catch’. Where people get this notion from is completely beyond me.
Strangely enough, most of my adult life has been packed with straightlaced square guys (or worse, married men seeking ‘tastefully discreet’ liasons) doing their best to try to ‘win me over’. The two times that I actually fell for it, they immediately started up insidious little manipulative games to try to rein me in, both socially and religiously – to make me a nice little ‘exciting but wifely’ type, which of course goes over very badly. Then, once the game is up and I call them on their crap, they get all, “Oh, I see. You liberals are all alike, never wanting to hear ‘the truth’ or be mature.”
Look, little neo-con boy whose taken it upon themselves to lecture me on the virtues of ‘maturity’ – I’m not the one that just threw themself repeatedly at a freak girl then had a tantrum when they realized that it wasn’t ‘just a costume’, or that she wasn’t doing it to shock the straights around her.
