Advice to the nice guy

if guys have ever wondered why the girls always fall for the jerks and sort of brush off the nice guy, I’ll answer that for you, . it’s because the nice guy is just so sweet and sensitive and falls so quickly into love, almost as quickly as girls do, that when he replies that he feels a certain way, no one is willing to believe it. we’ll make you reassure us for the thousandth time and even then we can’t be certain. 

but with the jerk, that cold and stoic jerk, he says so little that his single proclamation of love is fully credible. congratulations, girlfriend, you are the one for him. but no not really. he will cheat and he will lie and he will say he loves you but like other girls. the jerk is like a las vegas slot machine, you win 2 quarters, thinking that you’re close to the jackpot, or in other words, having him fall head over heels for you. oh it doesn’t work like that. 

so yes i guess this is evidence that some girls are a little logically impaired in terms of dating prospects, but wise word to the nice guy: stay kind to her, treat her well, but just stop being so nice. don’t compliment her every single day especially the days when she knows she looks like shit, she’ll think you’re lying. don’t buy her everything she says she likes, she’ll be fearful of you wanting something and not really liking her, even if all you want is just love. play hard to get sometimes, with work, or school, you attractively independent man, but whatever you do, never EVER utilize another girl’s name to demonstrate. 

well um yeah that’s my rant and my advice for the nice guy. hope he likes it, whoever he is.

I went to the mall, and a little girl called me a terrorist. 

My name is Ela.  I am seventeen years old.  I am not Muslim, but my friend told me about her friend being discriminated against for wearing a hijab.  So I decided to see the discrimination firsthand to get a better understanding of what Muslim women go through. 

My friend and I pinned scarves around our heads, and then we went to the mall.  Normally, vendors try to get us to buy things and ask us to sample a snack.  Clerks usually ask us if we need help, tell us about sales, and smile at us.  Not today.  People, including vendors, clerks, and other shoppers, wouldn’t look at us.  They didn’t talk to us.  They acted like we didn’t exist.  They didn’t want to be caught staring at us, so they didn’t look at all. 

And then, in one store, a girl (who looked about four years old) asked her mom if my friend and I were terrorists.  She wasn’t trying to be mean or anything.  I don’t even think she could have grasped the idea of prejudice.  However, her mother’s response is one I can never forgive or forget.  The mother hushed her child, glared at me, and then took her daughter by the hand and led her out of the store. 

All that because I put a scarf on my head.  Just like that, a mother taught her little girl that being Muslim was evil.  It didn’t matter that I was a nice person.  All that mattered was that I looked different.  That little girl may grow up and teach her children the same thing. 

This experiment gave me a huge wakeup call.  It lasted for only a few hours, so I can’t even begin to imagine how much prejudice Muslim girls go through every day.  It reminded me of something that many people know but rarely remember: the women in hijabs are people, just like all those women out there who aren’t Muslim. 

People of Tumblr, please help me spread this message.  Treat Muslims, Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans, Taoists, etc., exactly the way you want to be treated, regardless of what they’re wearing or not wearing, no exceptions.  Reblog this.  Tell your friends.  I don’t know that the world will ever totally wipe out prejudice, but we can try, one blog at a time.  

this is so perfect in absolutely every single way.

Something about this is rubbing me the wrong way

The word “condescending” comes to mind
