I originally meant the former, but I guess I can see how both are true.

It seems like men see women and believe that they are ALL there for the choosing, not taking into account whether or not the woman will even like them or not or what they look like or what job they have (etc...). As if every woman just wants male attention and that's enough. As if every one of us lives and dies by their approval.

I guess all men don't think like that...or all men don't think like that ALL of the time (there are probably some moments of clarity). A lot of men who don't like that are probably the miserable ones who turn bitter and creepy ("oh poor me I'm such a nice guy" syndrome).

I think women's studies courses and minority studies courses do enhance the victimization perspective. However, I do believe that their themes have provided at least some benefit to both groups in terms of greater sensitivity.

It wouldn't have been annoying if that was true. He made it a point to walk from one end of the bar and come stand right next to me to try and find out my name and let me know he was interested in me. I never turned my head or made eye contact with him. He wouldn't go away and kept talking. He liked my blue hair, I was pretty...blah blah...

Oh, I believed you when you said he was targeting you, specifically. Just that when somone is that intoxicated, the things they say and do are not conscious, ie., deliberate. Like he didn't plan beforehand, "if I say this, she will be impressed by me."

Stuff just comes spewing out.
