  4. A post for men about creepy men

    realsocialskills:

    I wrote a post a while back about how some people are very good at getting away with doing intentionally creepy things by passing themselves off as just ~awkward~.

    Recently, I noticed a particular pattern that plays out. While creeps can be any gender, there’s a gendered pattern by which creepy men get other men to help them be creepy:

    • A guy runs over the boundaries of women constantly
    • He makes them very uncomfortable and creeped out
    • But he doesn’t do that to guys, and
    • He doesn’t talk to guys about it in an unambiguous way, and
    • When he does it in front of guys, he finds a way to make it look deniable
    • And then some women complain to a man, maybe even a man in charge who is supposed to be responsible for preventing abuse in a space
    • and he has no idea what they are talking about, since he’s never the target or witness
    • And he’s had a lot of pleasant interactions with that guy
    • So he sympathizes with him, and thinks he must mean well but be have trouble with social skills
    • And then takes no action to get him to stop or to protect women
    • And so the group stays a place that is safe for predatory men, but not for the women they target

    For example:

    • Mary, Jill, and Susan: Jim, Bob’s been making all of us really uncomfortable. He’s been sitting way too close, making innuendo after everything we say, and making excuses to touch us.
    • Bill: Wow, I’m surprised to hear that. Bob’s a nice guy, but he’s a little awkward. I’m sure he doesn’t mean anything by it. I’m not comfortable accusing him of something so serious from my position of authority.

    What went wrong here?

    • Bill assumed that, if Bob was actually doing something wrong, he would have noticed.
    • Bill didn’t think he needed to listen to the women who were telling him about Bob’s creepy actions. He didn’t take seriously the possibility that they were right. 
    • Bill assumed that women who were uncomfortable with Bob must be at fault; that they must be judging him too harshly or not understanding his awkwardness
    • Bill told women that he didn’t think that several women complaining about a guy was sufficient reason to think something was wrong
    • Bill assumed that innocently awkward men should not be confronted about inadvertantly creepy things they do, but rather women should shut up and let them be creepy

    A rule of thumb for men:

    • If several women come to you saying that a man is being creepy towards them, assume that they are seeing something you aren’t
    • Listen to them about what they tell you
    • If you like the guy and have no idea what they’re talking about, that means that what he is doing is *not* innocent awkwardness.
    • If it was innocent awkwardness, he wouldn’t know how to hide it from other men
    • Men who are actually just awkward and bad at understanding boundaries also make *other men* uncomfortable
    • If a man is only making women uncomfortable but not men, that probably means he’s doing it on purpose
    • Take that possibility seriously, and listen to what women tell you about men

    tl;dr If you are a man, other men in your circle who are nice to you are creepy towards women. Don’t assume that if something was wrong that you would have noticed; creepy men are good at finding the lines of what other men will tolerate. Listen to women. They know better than you do whether a man is being creepy and threatening towards women; if they think something is wrong, listen and find out why. Don’t tolerate give predatory dudes who are nice to you cover to keep hurting women.
