Some chicks are creating a red/yellow/green card system for keeping men in line by shaming creepers and rewarding non-creepers (h/t Roosh). This is pretty much an adult version of high school holiday Candygrams which bring back quite a few painful memories.
It’s also just a hindbrain way to get men to suck up to women by collecting green cards. Of course, this will create something similar to a cottage industry whereby guys will just say “fuckitall” and go out of their way to collect red and yellow creeper cards.
I proposed to the proprietor that there should be at least some sort of explicit statement about false readings. Or maybe just pretend that they care about properly identifying creepers. Since the purpose of the creepy cards is to perfect men’s behavior around women, it holds up perfection as its ideal. If that’s the case, the perfection of the system should be the goal all the way through, and this includes trying really hard to avoid false accusations. The creator demurred, saying that the woman is the sole judge of whether a man in her vicinity is acting like a creep. We see the pattern here. The logical extent of this thinking is that women are the sole judges of whether or not men are behaving properly. They’re mostly now just trying to figure out how to document it and make the stigma stick like gorilla glue.
This brings to mind the debates about robotic versus human referees in sports. During the Euro Cup this year there was a lot of discussion about whether or not video cameras should take the place of human referees in crucial moments of the game i.e. to spot offsides or to determine if the ball fully crosses the plane of the goal line. The soccer analogy fits in other ways too since these women are talking about using red and yellow cards. Makes me also wonder if the issuance of these cards will involve a lot of flopping and players pleading their cases with that “who? what? me?” shrug face thing going on. Also, if this silly game takes off, those rape whistles these chicks carry around with them should finally come in handy.
