How Not to Pick Up a Chick in Second Life: Episode Five
[00:42] Sex Seeker: hello you look so hot!
[00:43] Deoridhe Quandry: Thank you.
[00:45] Sex Seeker: going to start thing off prob. bad, but can I shag you?
[00:45] Deoridhe Quandry: No. Why in the world would you imagine that request was welcome?
[00:46] Sex Seeker: sorry its been that kind of night
[00:46] Deoridhe Quandry: ......if your nights are such that you ask strangers for sex, then perhaps you need to log off the internet.

[00:46] Sex Seeker: wow you so hot!
When I say that many guys act as if I'm replaceable, as if they have a "sex object" or "girlfriend" slot they want to fit me into, I often feel like people don't agree with me. The term "oversensitive" gets thrown around rather a lot (along with irrational and hysterical) when I bring this up.
This is a rather bald example of that, though. Sex Seeker is not at all interested in me; even the complement - in light of his subsequent behavior - becomes questionable because the attractiveness of my avatar is unimportant to him; what's important is whether I will supply sex, not who I am or what I look like.
Sometimes I think that for a lot of men, women are like NPCs. You need to figure out what to say to them to get what you want, but the meaning of what you say isn't important - you aren't trying to talk to another person, but rather you're trying to find the up-down-up-down-left-right-a-b code to get sex, and then you can leave the NPC behind.
Honestly, the more I have men treat me like this, the less I want to deal with men at all.
I know it's unfair to generalize... but I'm so tired of it.
