What happens when you tell a woman who ignores you that you aren't even that interested?

So there I was, standing in the bar and enjoying the music. To my right were three, average-looking female twentysomethings. I noticed one of the women making fun of a man standing next to them who seemed a little old and out of place. Suddenly, the girl who had been making fun of the man saw me.

"I don't know you," she snapped at me.

I could tell she was eager to put me in my place, too.

"Oh my bad," I said with a playful smile.

I started to say more, but she turned her back and began to ignore me. So, I announced that I was not even interested in her, and I had had much better anyway. As I walked away, the older man she had been making fun of grab my shoulder and raised his glass in a "cheers".

I knew the girl would not be happy with the shift of power.

In the west, women are raised only to care about this. In the west, however, it is apparently also ok for the woman to charge at you, scream in your face and try to grab at and twist your nipples. Because that is what happened.

The bartender will see this and fail to take action against the woman. You, on the other hand, will be confronted by the bouncer as you push away the girl. You will then be removed from the bar and walked out of the establishment. Now, imagine the roles were reversed; a women walks away from you, but you follow her, get in her face and grab and twist her body. Tell me: what happens?

It's time for a serious dialogue in this country about the growing sociopathic epidemic within "the fairer sex", about what it means when those who grew up believing they are never at fault and free to act out their emotions without any accountability enter the public sphere.What role does this state of affairs play in the increasingly nihilistic and apathetic view men have of this society for fostering and pardoning such women?
