While Bye Felipe (a take on the meme "Bye Felicia") uses humor to take away some of the power these insults may carry, I also like to point folks to the Tumblr "When Women Refuse," which chronicles the serious problem of actual violence women experience at the hands of men who have been rejected.

The frightening entitlement demonstrated by the angry men of Bye Felipe is the same entitlement of those catcalling men who demand that female passers-by smile at their unsolicited compliments or assume that a woman's presence on the sidewalk in a short dress is an open invitation for praise.

I went for a drink with a guy I had been chatting with online.

He seemed pretty normal (good job, intelligent, funny).

We went to see a movie, and he kept talking about my feet — how "beautiful and sexy" he thought they were. " Later, during the movie, he asked if he could suck on my toes. I excused myself to go to the restroom and just walked straight out the door and left him in the theater.

This only irritated me because he didn't really ask, he just decided.

But the best part of the night was right before I went to bed (he was staying on the couch): He asked me if I should change my pad.

I said, "Definitely not." A few minutes later he dropped something on the floor, and while retrieving it tried to put the toes of my crossed legs in his mouth. I met a guy on Ok Cupid, and we hit it off pretty well.

After we hung out a few times, he came over to my place with a bottle of wine and a movie.
