“Mistreatment of women on the Internet”–or what did she expect?

I’m doing a social experiment called ‘agreeing with boys when they compliment you’.

the results:

The Huffington Post is duly horrified:

Claire Boniface, a 20-year-old student, began conducting a social experiment she called “agreeing with boys when they compliment you.” Rather than profess thanks and gratitude to suitors offering compliments via online dating sites, Boniface politely agreed with them.

“I was curious to see how the people that messaged me would respond,” Boniface told The Huffington Post. “Often when I get messages on that site simply complimenting me I just ignore them because the compliments are never sincere and I see no reason to respond, so I thought I would try out a simple response of ‘yes’ and see what would happen” She quickly found out that most dudes did not like this.

Boniface said she thinks that the negative response might have “a lot to do with how some men believe that they have the power to tell women what they are, without considering that women have already acknowledged this themselves.”

Riiiight.

Methinks it’s the lady who was a tad thin-skinned that men were having fun at her expense.
