If you want to stop a man in his tracks, just accept his compliment.
The Internet is packed with screenshots from Tumblr and Tinder alike, showing how often men feel insulted when women don’t accept their compliments.
Author, social worker, and activist Feminista Jones decided to try a new technique. She tweeted the most brilliant way to piss off men, and it’s genius.Every time she received a positive remark from the opposite sex, she accepted it, curious to see what would happen.
Jones realized that every time a man compliments her and she replies with a simple, straight-faced ‘thanks’ rather than a squeaky ‘thank-you’, men get upset. Simply accepting their compliments is something they don’t expect and it pisses them off (not all men, of course).
Jones’ tweets have gone viral since with tons of women sharing their own experiences. Keep on scrolling to check them out!
