I just sat next table over from this couple at a restaurant who were clearly a new couple. Weekend away together but still getting to know some of each other’s backstory. The restaurant was almost empty so I had no choice but to overhear. Mostly he talked, she simpered. She kept bringing up information about him like she was proving she’d been listening. The whole thing was gross and I kinda rushed thru my meal to get away from them. Anyway, at the end, SHE FUCKING PAID FOR DINNER. And I looked at this scrote leaning back in his chair, looking smug, clearly expecting to get laid soon, and it was just clear as day: scrotes do not see us paying as a marker of equality. They see it as a marker of subservience, just another convenient service women provide like listening to their stupid stories and sucking their stupid dicks. That girl didn’t prove she was his equal, she proved she was his doormat. I know this is what the handbook teaches but it was really brought home to me in a powerful way watching this sad spectacle. I hope she finds FDS but the way she was acting she’s probably hoping to marry the scrote.
