The boy logic for Conversation Starters is usually a cheeky compliment and the expectations which follow these compliments are a polite acceptance from the lady. Well, really?
Somebody here took the road less travelled!
Twitter user FeministaJones found out a unique one to piss men off. She realised that a straight-faced THANK YOU is the only accpetable reply to these compliments and took it on herself to see how these men reacted to a strong acceptance.
“It’s the idea that they bestow the compliment on you, and you’re not supposed to be aware of it,” Jones told Buzzfeed. “Generally we’re taught that we’re not supposed to compliment ourselves. When a woman does that, she needs to be humble.” Jones’ tweets have gone viral since with tons of women sharing their own experiences.
The story starts like this:
