Dirty Old Men
Dirty old men don't see women as individuals. They are a sub-class of human to the dirty old man to be used to further drive his sick emotional needs. He must feel superior to any woman he encounters for these games he plays. He must feel that he can manipulate the emotions of the women he uses to feed his degenerate ego.
He'll call women, honey, sugar, darlin, dear, in a sarcastic way he thinks we don't hear. If called on it, well then baby, it's just the way he talks, oink oink.
There is something mentally wrong with these men. They are predators. They prey on women and the internet lets them make themselves a lair in which to trap these women for their own amusement.
This type of man will never take a woman seriously. He will pretend to but will laugh at her the more she tries to defend herself or her gender. That is his purpose. That's his troll.
Why a woman would talk to a person like this and try to win his respect is boggling to me. I see it over and over and over.
Hey Larry, if you read this, I've got you pegged, fuckface. :)
