Women are sharing the perfect way to piss off men: accept their compliments

Author, activist, and social worker Feminista Jones came out will a surprisingly obvious, remarkably effective way to troll dudes.

That's right: simply accept compliments. In a world of catcalling and negging, men don't know how to react when a woman says, "Yeah, I agree that my ass looks fine today."

Men, who don't (as often) have to deal with Men retracting compliments when they agree with them, are really upset in my mentions πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Nothing weirds dudes out more than accepting their compliments...it catches them off guard, as if women are not supposed to like themselves.

Also an interesting observation is how many assume that a woman wouldn't say Thank You when agreeing with them. Lol

They even complain when you say "Thanks" with a straight face instead of "Thank you" with frilly giggles and fake blushed πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I've had SEVERAL men tell me they found "thanks" an offensive reply to a compliment given to a woman πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I see it every day because that's my usual response.

"Thanks" and keep walking. I get yelled at. Cursed at. "That's all you gonna say?"
"It's not a new idea, but in my own experience when [a man] complimented me and I say, 'I agree,' they get upset," Jones toldBuzzFeed. "It’s the idea that they bestow the compliment on you, and you’re not supposed to be aware of it."
Women shared screenshots of times they put Jones's strategy to the test.

@FeministaJones This dude, trying to talk to me at a bus station last summer: "You're very pretty."

Me: "I know. Thanks."


@FeministaJones EVERYTIME!
DUDE: You look nice today.
ME: Thank you! I completely agree...

@FeministaJones LOL one of my fave past times since college:
Dude: "You're beautiful"
Me: "I know."
Dude: "!!! ugly bitch"
Like, I have a mirror lol byee
Many men act confused, or even angry.

@Tommypol191 @FeministaJones In our experience when you agree with a guy's compliment he often retracts it & calls us arrogant.

Ill always remember when I was 12 and my guy told me I was smart and I said 'thanks I know' and he goes "Ew youre so cocky" https://twitter.com/FeministaJones/status/863030953605832704 

Random: you're so beautiful

You: yes, I know. Thank you

Random: *throws a tantrum*

Every damn time. https://twitter.com/feministajones/status/863030953605832704 
Jones explains that while confidence is celebrated in men, it's viewed as vain or conceited in women.
"Why are people so bothered by someone having self-confidence and self-love?" Jones added. "We have a culture that says it’s 'rude' — we obligate people to be appreciative of a compliment."
