I think the worst guy on the rejection list was my best friend/coworker at the time. A southern male who lived in Bogalusa, MS.
He asked me to come visit down south. And paraded me around his friends, and family.. prouder than a peacock..
I had no idea he was telling his step brother that he and i were banging each other..
When his step brother told me this, i was livid. I made sure, that he knew i was never interested in my friend in "that" way.
His stepbrother looked at me and said: "Any one can tell you weren't. He's just using you to bolster that damn ego of his. But hell, ya can't blame him can you?"
That night, coming in from the gym, i came back to my friend's house, he found out that his brother told on him.
He didn't take it very well, knowing that folks knew or found out he was lying his as** off to every one.
So.. as i'm walking in the door, there he is with a rifle pointed right at me.
He was actually going to try to rape me at gun point.
I wasn't having it, stood my ground, and told him to shoot me first, because i'd die before giving him anything. He didn't, but he sat there in his chair with the rifle still pointing.
I just started packing, and walked out the door. He was still sitting there with the rifle pointed at me, but didn't have the balls to pull the trigger.
When i made it into New Orleans that night? I realized just males truly are when it comes to attractive women.
I went to the police station, and filed a report. I got looked up and down by the clerk who heard my story and helped me fill out the paperwork. He actually said:
"Well, you can't blame the guy for trying".. This felt like a nightmare that was actually a reality..
I later told this to someone in passing, and that jack as** said the very same thing: "Well, you can't blame the guy for trying"..
I heard that phrase about 2x more, before i realized, this is how guys truly think.
I also realized that the police report wasn't going anywhere because my coworker and the cops in that location probably knew each other.
Gawd only knows what would have happened if i naively jumped in the police car with them, and they all drove to that guy's house with me in the back seat..
Sad to say this.. I don't believe i'm all that attractive.. but when guys believe you are? Get ready for rape culture..
