Link Love

We’re pretty light on links this week.  I don’t know why.  Ima blame #2.

Turn your research into click bait!  (The sad thing is that some of my research has already been turned into click bait… Not recently though.)

So, I was totally like, that minimum wage answer is a pretty valid one to me… there’s a reason we have 500 papers on the topic and we still don’t know the answer, but David Sibley has explained why that’s a problem.  Point taken, David Sibley!

Commentary on George Will (obviously caution rape topic)

Why aren’t you writing?

      Yeah, we saw that. It sounded pretty cool until I read one of the comments that was like, “but what if you’re in a situation with a guy who won’t take no and then he forces you to see if the number actually works”… and if you’re not in a situation where the guy won’t take no, then just say you’re not interested!

        yeah, I usually say I’m not interested. These days, I just say that I’m married (but am starting to think that I’m not interested is still a better line). I’d venture that the situation you mention is pretty rare (at least, I hope so).

        I’ve never been in a situation that a guy has asked for my phone number in my entire life. (I did get a guy give me his phone number once… in the science fiction section of a bookstore… but that’s it.)

      • Leah Says:

        I’ve only been asked for my number a handful of times (less than 5, I’m sure) other than stuff like ‘net dating or trading #s with a friend. But I also don’t frequent the bar scene or anything. There are better ways to meet people.

        there are a lot of situations where women don’t feel safe just saying they’re not interested. Especially young women. I’ve seen dudes grab a woman’s phone out of her hand and try to call themselves with it, at an outdoor music festival. That’s the kind of situation where you need to be rescued by a friend but in lieu of that cooperating til you can escape is an option.

        I’m pretty confrontational, and with a friend at my back I’d totally say “I am not going to talk to you” or “go see if someone else likes you” but I also used to give my number out as 897-9305 if cornered. Don’t want to be followed home by some creep. Of course that was in ancient pre-cell-phone times.
