A dismal view? The prey on women who are obviously in vulnerable circumstances ie: desperate for housing. But it is interesting how you performed those mental gymnastics to try a make a point.
Clearly women are the predatory ones, just looking to take advantage of some sad and lonely man who wants nothing more than a cuddle buddy while the woman is out strutting her stuff throughout town with all the money she saved on rent. I'll admit that there are two sides to every argument, unfortunately yours re like that of a jilted misogynist. I have always found responding to the actual comment I am replying to is so much more effective.
I remember knowing a girl in SFU who had free rent by being a guys "fuck buddy". She worked a full time job, her parents were kinda dead beats Luckily we banded together and one of our members sisters moved out to the interior and they took her in.
When things got more financially viable for her, she started paying them rent when she could. It was a good feeling because a year later that same "dude" got arrested for assaulting his room mate My first impression was that these posts were made by sexual predators.
Did the author ever think that the women who may respond to these types of here are the ones preying on people? Oh no no, that can't be.
Some innocent doe eyed girl who's being taken advantage of by a big bad wolf in landlords clothing. Yeah no, I don't think so. A girl who gets in to that situation knows exactly what she is doing.
She is the one exploiting the situation to her own benefit. She is living rent free and can pursue her own interests.
Perhaps as a student. Perhaps as an artist. Perhaps just living a party lifestyle.
If they're willing to take advantage of a lonely guy who wants to put up an ad like that, then that's their business. A guy who puts up that ad is a chump, and asking to be taken to the cleaners.
They're willing to take in a free loader like that is only asking for trouble. I certainly do not see them as a predator.
Her last 'ad' does make a good point, though. An intelligent, cute college-age girl could make thousands per month prostituting herself with a few clients.
With that kind of jingle she could rent a nice Kits condo and do yoga on the beach. Why would she enter into this arrangement?
Hell, for that matter she could put up YouTube vids of her in a bra from Nordstrom's playing videogames and earn enough to rent a place in East Van. Wow, you make a life of prostitution sound great! If it's such a good lifestyle, then when do you plan on becoming a hooker?
And I'd bet she'd totally deserve it too huh.
If two consenting adults want to enter into a mutually beneficial arrangement, by all means. What the author is focusing on are ESL and 'naive' individuals who might not see the ad for what it is and end up in a bad situation.
THAT is what makes it predatory. These kinds of arrangements are not news and are certainly not limited to heterosexuals. At the end of the day, if two consenting adults can satisfy a mutual need, I'm not sure what the problem is.
That said, you have to be pretty fucking naive if the intent of the is not immediately clear - especially because they are posted on craigslist. ature block should say "Alice Ride is a writer, traveller, teacher, public speaker, avid bicycle rider, occasional musician, and prude. Found the internet!
Sort by: best. You're a fucking creep dude. Reply Share. Royal Citizen.
