Blocked Again - I Must Have Been Very Offensive

Blocked Again - I Must Have Been Very Offensive

There's another blogger, whose material I genuinely enjoyed reading, for the most part. The qualifier on the end is because she occasionally drops into self-pity, then asks for input from readers. Hell, we all do that from time to time, but on top of that she can't inform you enough how educated, attractive, and accomplished she is. My comments have been mostly complimentary, but also call what I see. Case in point, one of her first<b> blogs </font></b>went on about how desirable she was, blah blah blah, and how men should compensate her for her time spent with them. You know damned well what I brought up as being a similar dynamic. Surprisingly, that didn't get me blocked, but she took that post down.

What seems to have gotten me blocked (because I only recall commenting on one of her posts, recently) was my comment on a post where she copy pasted an article about how casual sex has a negative impact on women. It went into the old 'your intimacy is precious and casual sex devalues it' narrative. I politely called bullshit on the article as old fashioned and pointed out how many women were perfectly capable of having sex for the sake of having sex, without any emotional attachment involved. You know; reality. I also asked if the article was from 1974. I guess I hurt her feelings or she just didn't appreciate my not agreeing with material plagiarized by someone so accomplished and desirable, because I went to read her latest entry and had been blocked. Poor dear educated woman can't take a bit of debate. C'est dommage

BTW, why can't people write their own shit, instead of copy pasting? I feel a new episode of Old Man Ranting coming up!

At least I didn't call her a baby killer

I think blocking is a sign of weakness. Its like you either agree with me or hit the bricks.
Some just cant hang. BTW, I was a young woman in 1974, casual sex was the norm then. Before aids. We took none of it seriously. Tons of fun.

Until I was called a baby killer, I would have agreed with you on blocking. But when you have someone who can't debate, without digressing to god knows what and insult you when you don't agree, that's when I've started exercising the block feature.

1974 was a random year I pulled out of my head; maybe I should have gone for the 50's.

I've been blocked by a blogger whose blog I've never commented on!

New2Midlo replies on 10/27/2021 6:48 am:
Know that feeling, except it was a woman who I wasn't aware existed blocked me because she wasn't interested, and sent me a terse note to make sure I was aware.

It takes all types.

I get the block when it turns really ugly. Im blocked by some I have had no interaction with. Maybe a comment I made they disagree with. Those are the weak ones. Snowflakes.

I have tried to quit commenting on the "one true way" blogs i.e. woman should feel this way, men act this way. FOr one thing, It's not always true, there's no blanket behavior that covers everyone. If I felt casual sex devalued me, I would write about it from my own experience and point of view. I used to play devil's advocate on those types of blogs, it got me blocked more than once.

New2Midlo replies on 10/27/2021 6:54 am:
We seem to differ in our approach. I almost always drop a comment in the 'one true way' posts, if that way isn't truly universal, such as torturing puppies is bad. I'm always polite and open to civil discussion. If that person wants to be a snowflake and block me, so be it. Not as though I'll miss much, if all their entries are 'my way or the highway'.

Blocking is a sign of weakness. I don't block anyone. But then most of the women I've come across I wouldn't have any kind of sex with. That's just my choice. I've met a few who didn't mind cassual sex, we both got what we needed.

New2Midlo replies on 10/27/2021 3:27 pm:
I agree to a point, regarding weakness, right to the point where the personal attacks roll in, from those who are incapable of arguing their point in a civil manner. They typically get a one way ticket to ban city, unless I find enjoyment in making fun of them.

I always count myself lucky when someone blocks me ( I think there is only lady on here who has) because obviously it's someone I could not have an adult discussion with.

C'est dommage - who knew you spoke french.

New2Midlo replies on 10/27/2021 4:28 pm:
Good point.

I don't speak French, but worked for a French company for a decade and picked up a few phrases.
