Since virtually all heterosexual women invest more time in avoiding being hit on by creeps than they do observing likeable folks; does everyone else get issued a magic 8ball with which to magically discover their 'liking?'

Essentially, every public space is polluted with Trumpy, PUA-ish Kreepy Doods. And women aren't going to have any 'safe space' in which to exercise any positive interest they might fee.

So we should all just stay home and pull the covers over our heads while guzzling ice-cream...

And the Stein crybaby voters are STILL claiming that Clinton wasn't a 'viable alternative.' Who the fuck ISN'T a viable alternative to the Big Cheeto?

So the whiny babies are already working to guarantee a second Trump term. Yeah...that'll make The Revolution happen, sure it will.

What did they mean by 'hall pass?' And what does the rest of the world mean by it?

Nine inches taller and fifty pounds heavier. Unless there's some special difficulty, it sounds as if the writer's inner insecurities are leaking out.

Talk to the guy. Everyone needs to be able to stop, or change, or adjust, what they're doing in case it isn't working. I've had awkward moments with a women a foot shorter and a hundred plus pounds lighter than I am. Just adjust to reality and try not to panic.

Maybe separate the two agendas.
Marry her to thumb your nose at Trump and co.
BUT, have one hell of a prenup sealed in blood for when/if things go south.

Jeez, even full-tilt Kegeling doesn't require any generalized clenching. Any more than moving your tongue while kissing is some terrible labor imposed upon you.

I suspect the correspondent might benefit from Kegeling, if only to become better acquainted with the muscles in question.

There are RAFTS of mutual funds and investment supports for those who want to avoid owning dirty businesses. If Stein gave a shit, she could make political hay over her investment strategy.

But the Ideological Purity biz is all shuck and jive.The Useful Idiots will do just as the Koch brothers and Trump wish. They'll bang on their highchairs and vote for X. Wonder why electing a fascist hasn't brought about the revolution, and then go back to sleep and let the Republicans win the 2018 election.

A publicly intoxicated man, stocking up on more booze, is ignored by the sales clerk? In a lot of states, sellers of alcohol can be liable for the effects of their products.

Even if his behavior had been no more than rudely 'familiar' this is a person who represents a public hazard. How was he going to transport his purchase? How many lives were put at risk because he was allowed to leave the store without a call to the police?

I'm deliberately bypassing the assaultive behavior that MADDER describes. There is something horribly wrong with the way the whole X and millennial generations categorically refuse to address alcohol as a slow motion train-wreck.

I don't think the problem is 'women attracted to assholes.'
In this culture, the social space for women is so dangerous and sex-negative that most women CAN'T act on any attraction that they might actually feel. Even if they manage to grow to adulthood with the capacity to do so.

'Lingering hopefully' for the approaches of 'confident men' is a recipe for rewarding sociopaths.

Certainly when women whinge about wanting 'confident men' one ought to bring up examples of men whose 'confidence' has been successful: Trump, Manson, Ted Bundy etc. etc.

'Nice' men almost never grasp the weight of Kreepy Konfidence women faced with. And women almost never grasp that men who are doing their best NOT to be assholes are effectively invisible.

Bicycle seats are not legally required to push on the underside of the pelvis. A buddy of mine was having numbness problems, He got one a bit like the linked to by #13.

The pressure is taken by the ischial tuberosities ('sit bones') and none goes onto any soft tissue except those two patches of skin.
