Be dominated by a woman in chat room
Even worse, sometimes—when someone else starts to answer a question—the dominating person jumps in and talks louder until the first person gives up.At first it's not a big deal and you think to yourself, "Well, maybe this person just needs to talk." But soon it becomes a real problem.More recently, You Tuber Gaby Dunn tweeted a text message she sent to her friend, Allison Raskin, detailing how a man had turned hostile toward Dunn and her friends after they had not appeared overly excited to speak to him for an extended period of time.I asked women on my personal Facebook if they had ever been in a situation, in person or online, where a man had given them attention that they had declined and then the man immediately turned hostile.I wouldn't do that to myself.'"Hannah Maté, 26, created Hey Sup Girl, a Tumblr made up of the terrible things men say on online dating sites and apps. "As a woman, I'm always on my guard when it comes to rejecting a man," Spelman told me over email.She shared a recent exchange with me: “hey, your profile looks interesting, we should try to meet up for a coffee…” (10 minutes later…) “If you were a desirable girl that many men wanted, why would you put up an internet profile? "I err on the side of niceness because I think it's the safest decision.When the dominant personality starts talking, give them their minute and then wait until they catch a breath, or maybe just slow down just a little bit.
No matter what topic is discussed or what question is asked, they eagerly share their opinions for 5, 10 or 20 minutes—and no one else can get a word in edgewise.
Unfortunately, it's a dynamic as old as time -- or at the very least, as old as Internet chat rooms.
