I Don't Want to Fucking Smile. And Fuck You Too

You sound really unhappy with the world around you.

Maybe if you smiled more you would get a better reaction and you could relax a little bit.

Simpleminded women always resort to the classic "old creepy man" label. Yes, how creepy - what a "strange man"! What is this "smiling" he was talking about? Fuck that rapey creeper!!!! Ew just go to the police now, what a psycho stalker pervert he must've been!

Not everyone wants to fuck you, princess.

Whoever wrote this, whatever their gender, is obviously a nasty person who (I can just tell) is a sack of cold nothing in bed. Selah.

I think the Mercury should use these comment threads to gather up all the accounts they should ban in one convenient place. (see above three comments)

Telling a female stranger to smile is nothing less than sexual bullying. They wouldn't tell some dude to smile.

Have you ever responded by telling them that you don't feel like smiling, and suggesting that they tell the saddest-looking man on the street/bus to smile instead?

Yes, the men don't like this one because they don't have experience with that situation and don't get it or believe that it's real. I'm very proud to be able to say that I was once told to smile by some dude on the street when I was having such an awful day that I was actually able to burst into tears at him. I very much doubt that he'll risk that kind of awkwardness again.

Anyway, one can't always walk around on the verge of tears, so I usually just modify my all-purpose "suck my dick" response to creepers for the specific situation.

"I'll give you smile if you suck my dick!"

Then they get to try to figure out if you actually have a dick!

What the fuck is this bitch typing about? I was totally with her/him/it; till it typed; "But now I want to rant about the terms of writing I, anonymous "homophobic, racist, or overly misogynistic language is strictly prohibited". So being a regular misogyntist is ok? Fuck that too!". Now I'm just confused.

Learn to stop, bitch.

I'm convinced every girl in this city has some degree of crazy. Some way crazier than others.

^ please look up term "gaslighting". Men like to tell women they're crazy if they have a problem with being treated like a second-class citizen. The problem is with you, not our delicate feminine brains. Would you really want complete strangers to stop you on the street in order to tell you how you can adjust your outward appearance so as to better please them? "Hey bro, you should really pull your head out of your ass so I can look at your face. You got a purdy mouth."

@chicostix - actually now that you mention it, the Merc is offering 100% more protection to women than men with that statement. You can't be overly misogynist, but women can hate on men all we want! It's open season, girls!

I completely agree dudes need to mind their own business and it's a dirt-bag move to actually verbalize something if someone doesn't smile back. I checked out "gaslighting". That's interesting, I'll have to watch the movie.

Now, just to be clear, We ALL have some degree of craziness. But, I've kind of held out hope that I'd find a girl who didn't.

I've told men and women to smile; by smiling at them when they are frowning as they are walking near me. Usually they smile back; unless they are self absorbed psycho hose beasts.

Not everyone that would rather see a smile on a strangers face is a creeper. Step outside of your narcissistic box.

But you're not actually telling them verbally - you just smile and if they don't smile back, you let them go along their unmerry way and keep your judgements to yourself. So way to go! You're doing it right, but also your point is totally irrelevant because that's a different thing entirely! Anyway, telling a stranger to smile is just yet another way of trying to invalidate their emotions just to make yourself more comfortable.

Porches - yeah, I'll agree that EVERYONE is crazy, once you quit making it all about women. Just find a girl who is a compatible and non-destructive kind of crazy. Some kinds of crazy are way more fun than others! Just don't go telling her that her opinions aren't valid "'cause she cray."

"Just find a girl who is a compatible and non-destructive kind of crazy. Some kinds of crazy are way more fun than others! Just don't go telling her that her opinions aren't valid "'cause she cray.""

This is a very wise statement. It could be said about men; women.
