Okay, so I've been off school for the past week, and I was devastatingly bored. So, I thought it would be a fun way to pass the time (as I am a talkative soul lol) by visiting a chat room. I browsed Google and I found 'Chat Avenue' It has a ton of different rooms - eg. Gay Chat, Adult Chat, General Chat, College Chat etc etc. So anyways, I pick general chat and signed in with my user name. In less than 5 minutes, I got 4 private messages - 3 of the 4 asking if I "fancied a hot chat" and the 4th one inquiring about my gender. After i closed the private chat windows, I got another PM from someone, who was looking for a BDSM relationship. Needless to say I was pretty freaked out. I checked to make sure I wasn't in an "Adult" themed chat room which I wasn't because I was chatting in General. Eventually I decided to leave after I kept receiving perverted remarks and a few random insults. I decided to use another chatting service. This time optichat, which I had used back in 2002 as an 8th grader. Anyway, I sign in as Bubbles (as always ) only this time I wasn't sent a wave of PM, which was a welcoming change. I answer an IM and we have a fairly good conversation - discussing our hobbies, favorite music, movies etc. In fact, he sounded like a really nice guy until he asked how big a certain portion of my body was completely out of the blue. LOL! As if that was the most natural thing in the world to ask. The douchebag even tried to debate me on it when I challenged his sanity. I received 2 more IMs while I was arguing with this ass-hat. And I was pleasantly surprised to learn that they were girls. I was like "Finally! Someone whose not gonna act like a pervert." Oh, what a fool I was.... Turns out they were just lesbians looking for a 'fun time.' After throwing up, I decided to block them and delete them off my contact list. So, after 2 hours of nothing but disrespectful assclowns who have nothing better to do than fuck around with strangers on the net, I decided to call it a day. In short, I don't see why its impossible for people to have a decent intellectual conversation with others without having to mention body parts as soon as they figure out your gender? Actually, I did some experimenting. I went back to chat avenue and signed in as 'Bobbyboy' and guess what? No messages for a good 15 minutes. When I got one it was a perfectly decent conversation. So why is it, that when a girl goes into a chat room, she is floored with every sick fetish under the sun? I mean these people wouldn't talk to me like that to my face, so what makes them big mack daddies all of a sudden?
