horseshoe, Wednesday, 5 March 2008 20:19 (eleven years ago) link

what's the psych behind this? is it like the guy's putting the blame on the "annoying" chick because he can't deal with his being attracted to her?* or are annoying chicks just really hot?

*sorta like calling a woman a slut because she slept with you you slept with her?

get bent, Wednesday, 5 March 2008 21:38 (eleven years ago) link

ive done this before and i think its partially a defense mechanism when you think you wanna get with a girl but shes, you know, annoying

and what, Wednesday, 5 March 2008 21:41 (eleven years ago) link

most times ive hated on some random chick to a girl i was dating what i really was thinking was man id hit that

and what, Wednesday, 5 March 2008 21:42 (eleven years ago) link

i think it's like, before the fact, "annoying" is an epithet of self-protection from the knowledge that he wants to sleep with her? but maybe a guy should answer this question. or sunny, because she's smart.

sometimes annoyingness is attractive when you realize what the one thing is that would shut her up

i think it's a way to get away with looking at the girl and acknowledging her in front of your gf, but doing it in a manner that would suggest "man i would never go for her". like when you say, "man look at her hat, how lame" you're thinking "but damn, the rest of her!!~"

i think it goes something like "she is annoying" = "i couldn't date her" = "but would totally sleep with her".

or are annoying chicks just really hot?

this is pretty much true (well, hot chicks are annoying anyway), there is this thing where hot chicks think they are endlessly fascinating bcz nobody ever tells them to stfu~

also a steadfast rule abt ppl is that the more worked up abt something they are, the more they are prob overcompensating for something. the more a dude talks shit about a broad, the more he wants to bang her until her freckles fall off. she's probably still hell of annoying tho~

[20:31] andrew: AHAHAHAAH YAAAA
[20:31] andrew: ginny does that
[20:32] andrew: i am like get real lil dumpkoff
[13:12] andrew: the aptitude of jessica alba at her chosen career has very little to do with my desire to lay atop her, panting and sweating
[13:13] me: beads of sweat plopping onto her forehead, look of horror frozen on her face
[13:14] andrew: lol i see we have had similar sexual histories~
[20:32] andrew: hatred stems from jealous thoughts
[20:33] me: girls just want an angel such as alba to be some degraded ass dog like tara reid or somethin
[20:33] andrew: jessica alba isn't even the hottest chick to me so it's even more lol that chixx hate her so bad

jhøshea, Wednesday, 5 March 2008 23:14 (eleven years ago) link

i dunno, there's the other side which is exemplified by my otherwise cool friend. it was at a point where he had to "run game" on any semi-attractive girl around. it usually involved "showing them something" by "touching their hands".

jhøshea, Wednesday, 5 March 2008 23:18 (eleven years ago) link

haha my friend actually played that "says one thing, means another" shit w/r/t "the game" because he commented on how this one guy we both knew was always trying to pick up girls and how lame it was, then suddenly he's trying to seduce girls by showing them how he uses his hands in martial arts and how he's learned some massage techniques and "here let me show you this one thing" (takes girl's hand)

omar little, Wednesday, 5 March 2008 23:21 (eleven years ago) link

For real –– I don't mean to be zingy. But, I mean,. urban public schools often suck and are unfair and ESPECIALLY terrible at teaching non-white students. And they're actually trying to fix things. Even if it's bureaucratically difficult. Unhappy, nad aware of these issues, parents of non-white students respond to enticements to bring their students to charters that frequently practice extreme discipline practices, skirt teaching regulations, exploit their labor force and chronically underserve students needing special education. Often these schools are white-owned, for-profit entities. At best this is a profiteering dodge of the real issue; at worst it's resegregation.

Should we do the same thing with waiting rooms and water fountains if people are opting in?

i'm sure there are waiting rooms and water fountains with extremely segregated clienteles and i don't believe we should forcibly desegregate them

Mordy, Wednesday, 28 November 2018 23:05 (one year ago) link

"this water fountain in a 99% black community is used 99% by black water drinkers and is reifying segregation we must bus in white water drinkers and bus out black water drinkers to other water fountains to achieve equality" i mean c'mon
