2325: Nice Guys of OKC are Really, Really Real! Or Douchebag Mother load

I recently found a website that had posts from users of a dating site called OKCupid in which they showed the particularly douchebag behavior of men sayyessir1on the site.  Usually the behavior was screened behind the guise of being “a nice guy” but really is just a passive aggressive backdoor form of misogyny.  In the spirit of being a humanist (or at least having some faith that men could not be that bad)  I decided that these accounts of horrors inflicted on my female compatriots had to be fake or at least exaggerated.  So in the interest of journalism and blogging everywhere… okay… and for my own amusement I sought out the right guy to test my theory on.

Under any normal circumstance I would and have always ignored rude messages I received from any guy on a dating site.  Out of principle I would not rise to the occasion but this was different and I had to know how far I could take it before the lady in me could take it no further.   Enter a man who’s screen name is “sayyessir1” who clearly did not take the time to read my rather descriptive profile… that is quite clear on the fact that I am not, NOT, looking for just a sexual encounter, a random booty call, or any other untoward affair.  I am after all “the Belle”.  I have standards, and they are exacting, as should any lady.  I think most troublesome to me is that if he is sayyessir1 that usually means that he is the second and there are more out there. 

On his profile he states he is a “dom”.  Gag.  After reading over his profile and his obvious glee in sexually objectifying women and his disdain for any woman with spirit I knew he was the right guy for my experiment.  Further still his first message to me proved it.  He actually wrote to me “I’m not sure we are looking for the same things but I am interested in a sexual relationship.”   And so dear readers… all 12 of you… I lowered myself into the pit of nauseating banter to glean the following gold for you and your entertainment.  Enjoy.

here it comes

it goes on... and as of 0007 he is still messaging me on the site

that's a negative ghost rider


highlights of his profile

So there it is my loves… that sad truth.  Was I too bitchy? Too snarky? Since I was really baiting the situation maybe I was not entirely fair….  given the fact that he is still messaging me after that response perhaps not.  Judge me with all fairness my friends, the dating world is a nasty one.

Confronting the Student Loan Scandal in America

Rolling Stone magazine this month confronts the Student Loan Scandal. I highly recommend the read. As a student myself I consistently wonder if I am getting what I am "paying" for... or in this case will be paying for. I may never own a home, afford children, indeed find work because of some companies policy on checking credit. Fascinating read and I actively encourage this read for anyone. The government has a sick and twisted way of making college necessary and lying to young people and people like me, older but no way to pay out of pocket for school because of the high price on tuition. According to the article the now government owned student loan program stands to make 184 billion dollars off of the student loan programs in the next few years... That's right BILLION. Student debt in this country is already in the TRILLION range. I realize this is a departure from my usual attempt at a humorous approach but this is a serious issue and I think all people should be aware of the scam being perpetrated on America's youth; that could stand to bankrupt an already fragile economy on a level not yet seen in this economy. Worth mentioning, if you declare bankruptcy student loans cannot be included. As the article states, even gamblers can declare their debts in bankruptcy.

As recently as this summer, when I took a term off Sallie Mae started calling for money on a loan. They even called my father. Like he can do anything in these tough economic times. What was he suppose to say to these people? Between my medical debts for my illness and student loans... I may never be out of debt. Follow the link here:

Read the article.... inform yourself. Perhaps we should find a way to rise up and say enough is enough. Oh wait... typically as a nation we are too apathetic to do so... We should be outraged! We should stand up and say something about a lot that is happening in this country and yet silence and apathy is the name of the game. Please read the article and let me know your thoughts on the matter.
