Male communication explained. Fun stuff.

“Nightmare Online Dater” resurfaces on Dr. Phil’s show

June 4, 2008

Last fall Gawker.com ran a very funny story on John Fitzgerald Page. Basically, John sort of lashed out at a woman on an internet dating site that wasn’t interested in him. Here’s his response when informed by the woman that they simply weren’t a match.

I think you forgot how this works. You hit on me, and therefore have to impress ME and pass MY criteria and standards – not vice versa. 6 pictures of just your head and your inability to answer a simple question lets me know one thing. You are not in shape. I am a trainer on the side, in fact, I am heading to the gym in 26 minutes!

So next time you meet a guy of my caliber, instead of trying to turn it around, just get to the gym! I will even give you one free training session, so you don’t blow it with the next 8.9 on Hot or Not, Ivy League grad, Mensa member, can bench/squat/leg press over 1200 lbs., has had lunch with the secretary of defense, has an MBA from the top school in the country, lives in a Buckhead high rise, drives a Beemer convertible, has been in 14 major motion pictures, was in Jezebel’s Best dressed, etc. Oh, that is right, there aren’t any more of those!
Regards,

John

John resurfaced in May on “The Dr. Phil Show” for a show about men with big egos. (the irony of Dr. Phil hosting such a show isn’t lost on us here). For a great laugh, click on the following link and read and watch the exquisite douchebaggery. It’s breathtaking.

Apparently, the tv show “Firefly” is the epitome of male perpetuated violence and rape against women.

In case hard-core feminists still wonder why people roll their eyes as soon as they start ranting…Exhibit A: A feminist critique of Joss Whedon’s series, “Firefly.” Speaking out against discrimination is noble. Allowing your anger to cloud any sense of critical thinking and logic, not so noble.  Remember your freshman year on campus when you marveled at the assorted militant women’s groups that griped about every possible little thing?  This is kind of like that.  Not even sure what to say about this tripe.
