In the spirit of preventing dating disasters and putting obnoxious, ignorant losers on blast, here are 11 kinds of people who you should never date: Mansplaining is the term used to describe the way some men explain things to women when the women are already aware of the information, if not more knowledgeable about the information than the mansplainer.
As Rebecca Solnit writes, it is "the intersection between overconfidence and cluelessness where some portion of [the male] gender gets stuck." Mansplainers may immediately assume your lack of knowledge in an area which is actually your expertise, feel the need to explain simple, mundane tasks to you, magically spit fabricated "facts" at you whenever you prove them wrong, or repeat back your own words in conversation as if they were meaningless until he uttered them himself.
He'll probably call you some variation of a stupid bitch, "dumb cunt," as Ryan writes, or an idiot slut. I'm talking about those of you who have been dating someone for a few months, really like the person, and are interested in things becoming more serious.
One time a Nice Guy who I'd nicely turned down called me a "Vagina Monster."If you are actually dating a Nice Guy, he is probably using guilt to control your decisions. If you express those desires and are met with the response, "I don't believe in labels," GET OUTTA THERE, GURL.
"You're not like other girls" shouldn't make you feel special; it only shows that your suitor thinks women are supposed to be stupid, and you have zero time for that.
If a person considers any of these social injustices to be amusing, then that person is probably a racist /homophobe/transphobe/sexist/rapist/rape apologist.
He has been Nice to you, so aren't you a bitch for not wanting to date him? Staying in the situation means that you'll be caught in a seemingly endless spiral of heartbreak, jealousy, and insecurity.
The problem isn't that your love interest doesn't believe in labels.They, however, "can say whatever [they] want." Another awful aspect of dating these kinds of losers: When you speak up about their terrible jokes, you will often be met with the response, "You just don't have a sense of humor," or "You just don't understand comedy." Lolololol NOPE THAT IS WRONG.You actually have a nuanced understanding of comedy, and of the differences between punching up vs.In other words, you have absolutely no room for their ignorance and idiocy in your life.It is not your job to educate the person you are dating about their privilege, so please don't consider them a "fixer-upper" either.Or maybe you smiled through the pain and vented endlessly to your annoyed roommates for countless embarrassing months because the person you were dating "didn't believe in labels." Girl, you have recognized your wrongs.
