Women Can Be Very Creepy
- Of or producing a sensation of uneasiness or fear, as of things crawling on one’s skin: a creepy feeling; a creepy story.
- Annoyingly unpleasant; repulsive: the creepy kids next door.
Let’s Go Hula Hooping!
As a Martial Artist, I find any activity having to do with human movement fascinating and potentially useful. That is why I jumped at the chance to visit a Hula Hooping meet-up in Houston Tx. Houston Hooper Stahs meets at a public park (Hermann Park), where they do their thing to music from 10:30 to noon on Sundays.
A recent encounter reminded me of something important enough to be put in writing.
The ‘Oh No It’s A Guy’ Talk
When I arrived, I was taken aside by the event organizer and given “the speech,” reserved for males(or so I was told). The only way that I can describe the speech is that it was very creepy (see and use literal definition above), mentally intrusive, and sad. I was told that the group consisted primarily of women who were “reclaiming” themselves and that this, in addition to there being children around, should bring to my awareness a need to respect their “boundaries.” In other words, I should definitely walk on eggshells and question my every move and thought lest I come across as threatening.
There’s A Feeling In The Air
I get it. I can feel it too. Maybe most of you are divorced; maybe you were sexually abused as a child, but not by me. I didn’t do it so why take it out on me? The problem does not revolve around whether or not I am a predator but the fact that this is what you see as I stand there wondering about the stock market for all you know. In your mind, you are playing out some scenario with me taking on the role of somebody that I am not. Do you get it? If not then read my other post on the topic, “Your Mind Is Not My Mind.“
A Behavioral Analysis
You want me to walk on eggshells because it makes you feel empowered. It enables you to get back at that ex-husband or whomever else you feel wronged by. You want to hijack my mind so that I am no longer able to simply walk by musing about what I want to think about, but instead you want to make sure that, as I walk by, I do my best to do whatever it takes to make you think that I am not a threat. This is controlling and manipulative. Guys, realize this!
This is creepy!
Not only does it make you come across as vindictive and manipulative, but more importantly, it contributes to the general paranoia that is so rampant in our American culture. Now lucky for me I can catch on to this type of manipulative behavior. I am a mental engineer, a reverse engineer of my mind. I will fight it, and I will share my experience because I know that there are many others out there that are tricked into cowardice by your dirty little tactics.
We Can Defeat This!
The way to fight and win? Walk up to every woman and child you see on the street, in the park, and say hello. Notice that tinge of panic, as you become self-aware that you may be breaking that unwritten social code which states that to be a proper male citizen, you must run away as fast as possible from anything which might make you look like a threat. Once you realize and face this irrational fear, you will be set free from it.
That is all.
