A man just walked past me and said “excuse me, but you look very nice tonight darlin” I said thank you and he said you’re welcome and walked off. And that is how you compliment a woman without harassing them
No, that is still unsolicited, and thus, harassment. No amount of “darlins” is gonna make me not want to punch your ass for coming on to me without provocation.
UR SO STUPID
Silencing bigots is pointless and won’t achieve anything. They’re unlikely to change their opinion, but when they’re forced to keep those opinions to themselves, there will be zero chance for discussion to tell them how wrong they are.
For all my life, I have had a fear of moths. They disgust me and it has been something I really can’t get my head around to overcome. I would have to ask my Mum every time to exterminate it whenever it flew into my room.
"Why can’t you do it yourself?"
"Because I hate them…I hate moths"
"If you truly hated something, you would like to see them gone. You would be content to never see one ever again. If you can’t live up to your own expectations, you are just making up excuses for yourself"
Powerful words. The act of hating or showing disgust is so strong. If we don’t like something about ourselves or others, what is the point of sitting around and complaining when it will still be thriving.
I could either sit back and let the moth fly or I could capture it myself and let it go.
Fighting words don’t chip any blocks off any progress. Capture your own success to outshine your hate. Conquer yourself instead of trying to conquer anyone’s progress. Any kind of success should be applauded and to deny anyone the right to feel great about themselves in any way is useless.
Instead of putting someone down for what you don’t have, challenge yourself to be better. Applaud your own and everyone’s success.
If you laugh at someone who succeeds, all that will be left is your laughter because they’ll be too far ahead to care.
All that would be left of my fear will be fear because the moth would have flown around the room without caring.
