To: The Ladies. Re: Class-Action Apology


I received a message from an A.F.F. member the other day. In itself, that's quite unusual; it's very rare that another member initiates contact with me (more's the pity). The message, which was from a man, said, in its entirety:

"Man i love to suck cock . Let me know ?"

(Let me preface all of this by saying that I have absolutely no problem at all with gay or bisexual folks, and while I'm not going to go so far as to say I find it flattering, it certainly doesn't bother me to be propositioned by a gay or bi man. I'm not going to accept their offer, but the proposition is fine if and when it happens.)

But this message is just absurd on many levels. In no particular order:

1. My profile states that I'm looking for women only (or lesbian couples, but that's still women only). It goes on to state that I'm straight. Where did this guy get the idea that sending me a message would be anything other than a complete waste of the 4 1/2 perfectly good seconds it took him to write it?

2. I know brevity is the soul of wit and all that, but is nine words really all the dude could manage? Nine damn words? How do you get anybody's interest in nine words, no matter what nine they are?

3. The one advantage to really short messages should be that it's easy to make them typo-free. Hey, everybody makes typos, and I probably have at least a couple just in this blog entry. But a message that short should be very easy to proofread, and yet he still managed not to capitalize "I" and to leave spaces before both of his punctuation marks (which leads one to suspect that he believes that's the correct way to punctuate). Three errors in a nine-word message ... not good, even if two of the errors were the same. Not good at all.

4. Messages like that don't actually ever work, do they?

My point, such as it is: I'm beginning to understand that you ladies here in A.F.F.-land must get messages like this on a regular basis, and by that I mean many of them each day. On behalf of my entire feeble-minded gender, I offer my deepest apologies. I wish I could tell you that it won't happen again, but until we guys start doing more of our thinking with the organ between our ears and less of it with the one between our legs, well, I'm afraid there will be more of the same. With that in mind, in addition to my apology, you have my sympathy.
