I’m not going to say this guy deserves a Pulitzer for the exposé of determining that it’s a million times easier for women on dating apps than it is men. But seeing it spelled out so directly like this is really something. I’d say because of the Tinder blog and my own commitment issues, I’ve seen more online dating profiles than 99% of society and I’m baffled that this:
Being turned into this:
..could somehow be a thing that hundreds of men are like “FUCK YEAH LET ME GET A PIECE!” Transgendered women who get all the work done and live like that 24/7, sure. But this is literally just a guy who got his eyebrows threaded and put some lipstick and a wig on and called it a day. There is no way it should be that effective. But at the same time, I kinda wanted to see him go all the way with this. Guys were saying completely off the rails stuff like this over photos:
But would they have had the same reaction in person without photo filters covering up some of the stubble and hurt spots? Or hearing him try to work his way through a two-hour date in a fake girl voice? And the sad thing is I’d bet most of these guys still would. A dude like this would end up going the whole way with his request if it goes unchecked, no doubt in my mind:
So in conclusion, yes this video is both a great and terrifying experiment but the only way this video could have possibly been better is this guy above going through a full date, somehow getting his wish, then the excitement turning to horror as he gets an unexpected Roman war helmet, presumably accompanied by a wacky morning radio show BOIIIIIIINGGGG sound. If we’re going to play scientist and make hypotheses and conduct experiments, I demand we see it all the way through like a goddamned professional.
