so my dad’s friend was bartending and saw a guy put something in a girl’s drink so while the guy turned around he switched their drinks and watched the guy roofie himself.
Why didn’t he just call the cops? That’s a way of taking care of the problem more permanently and without breaking the law.
What’s the worst possible thing you can call a woman? Don’t hold back, now.
You’re probably thinking of words like slut, whore, bitch, cunt (I told you not to hold back!), skank.
Okay, now, what are the worst things you can call a guy? Fag, girl, bitch, pussy. I’ve even heard the term “mangina.”
Notice anything? The worst thing you can call a girl is a girl. The worst thing you can call a guy is a girl. Being a woman is the ultimate insult. Now tell me that’s not royally fucked up.

Actually, the worst thing you can call a girl is “not a lady” The worst thing you can call a guy is “not a guy,” not because of women being the worst thing, but because, for men, being manly and tough is seen as ideal (and that’s true to an extent, you do need to be tough) while for women, being ladylike is seen as the idea. As a result, men are called “not men” and women are called “not ladies”. It’s not that women are worse in both cases, it’s that the terms used are the opposite of the ideal for men and women respectively.
