creepy computer guy

I follow a number of attractive women on Social Media and there has always been this trend of creeper, loser-types who post comments that they assume is flattering to women. Most of the time it is internet bravery that comes out as creeper text because the guys posting are anonymous, horny, and could care less what anyone thinks.

Yesterday, I ran into the same situation on Google+ with one of the women in my circles where she snatched her photograph down because of the zerg of sophomoric commentary about her looks. The White Knights came out en masse to dab the tears from her internet eyes, not knowing that like the former commentators, they were as much a part of the problem as the offenders.

Why do I say this? Well the problem with White Knighting is that it normally comes with the game of self-proclaiming that you are not like the other boys. I take issue with a man throwing the rest of us under the bus in order to push his chest out to a woman as the difference (in secret hope that she will allow him to polish her pedestal with his tongue).

We need to stop this foolish game of jousting for female online favor; it is futile, silly, and absolutely worthless. The only time your creeper act or white knighting will end up paying off in the sex you so desire is if the woman already knows you, wants to sleep with you, and is going to do it anyway. Anything less is some sucker sh-t. I just don’t have any other words for it.


I absolutely hate, hate, hate when men play themselves on a woman’s photo online. Not the guys who may post “looking cute in this pic Sara” or generic stuff like “love it” (the narcissist who put up the picture feeds on compliments like that) but the guys who are all “Ma, I would lick you from head to toe”, or “goddess!” or “when we going out baby” come off as sub-men.

The counter to these guys is the male who steps up to call them out (don’t do this), the term we use for them is White Knights… I like to call them Templars.

On the thread yesterday I took one of these Templars to task for asking the woman if she needed him to rip the commentators a new one (yes he offered her his sword folks). I had to wonder at the plight of the beautiful woman online, who posts many photos of herself… how many creeps does it take for you to realize that losers will post rubbish on any new photo you post?

Not blaming victims here, I am just wondering at the sincerity of a woman who acts victimized when someone posts a disrespectful comment on one of her photos.  We are all seasoned on the internet here folks… how sincere is that? Could it be that some women fish for compliments and the White Knights to scare off the brutes?

Where do you stand on this topic denizens? Are you a mighty Templar warrior, defender of the beautiful and assumed innocent internet beauty? Or are you an ogre, troll, or cave man, drooling and commenting on what you want to do with the naughty pics? Probably neither right? You’re like me, you see both of these types as sad and perpetuating a behavior that only feeds the ego of the muse they battle over.

What will it take for this to stop? Let me know where you stand.

  • I think lovely women enjoy posting photos of themselves for a lot of reasons. Because they’re proud of how lovely they are, or they are indeed fishing for compliments, or they’re hoping some modeling/acting scout will pluck them from the crowd. Vanity is a funny thing. It’s not always a bad thing, I think?

    And it’s so hard for me, as a woman, to make a call as far as “Should a woman expect to be approached by creepers and therefore not be annoyed when it happens” or “Dudes shouldn’t act like creepers, period.” Because, look. We all know it’s going to happen. I wish it didn’t, I wish guys knew better.

    Maybe some women do indeed do it for the White Knights? Who the hell knows. I’m a woman and I have no idea.

    • Hey Brooke I’ve seen both types. I have women on Facebook who post for compliments and I’ve seen the Instagram models who put themaelves out there to be discovered. What always baffles me though is when someone who posts a lot goes berserk over the 100th jackass comment. It’s like… Didn’t you get the memo? And as soon as beauty reacts in comes a bevy of Betas to defend her honor. It’s all so silly.

      I always wonder why women don’t turn off the comments on platforms that allow it. I write a lot and I know that it comes with hateful commentary, grammar maxis, and armchair editors… So you won’t see me complaining about that – it’s part of the game. I just assume the same should apply with beautiful social media girl.
