Recently, I've been noticing a lot of creeps coming out of the woodwork and crawling out from underneath long-undisturbed rocks. It pisses me off. I've been trying not to rant on other people's threads, so I'm doing it here, in my own corner of the intarwebs.

When you're a creep, you come across as being creepy/stalkerish/offensive/aggressive/boorish/frightening. When you're a creep on social media, you run the risk of being unfollowed, ignored, blocked, reported, and/or becoming the subject of a report to local law enforcement. If that's what you want, keep doing what you're doing.

If a someone posts a photo and you think they look great, tell them so. Public selfies are NOT* an invitation for you to comment that you'd like to rape them, undress them, dive into their crotch, or spout some other sexual/violent innuendo. What the actual hell is WRONG with you people?! You know better than that.

If you want to be perceived as a considerate, decent, attractive human being, you could probably benefit from reading through two sites:

1. Dr. Nerdlove's Don't Be A Creeper http://www.doctornerdlove.com/2011/12/dont-be-a-creeper/all/1/

2. John Scalzi's Incomplete Guide to Not Creeping http://whatever.scalzi.com/2012/08/09/an-incomplete-guide-to-not-creeping/

Some key points from these two that apply particularly to online interactions:

"Women have to gauge every interaction with men, especially men they don’t know, on whether or not he presents a threat to her. This is the unspoken subtext for every time a guy talks to a girl, sends a Facebook friend request or asks her out." (Dr. Nerdlove, On Male Privilege and Being Creepy)

"Women already have to fear for their safety on a daily basis… the last thing you need to do is remind her that, oh yes, you represent a potential threat to her. This means that there are certain jokes that you just shouldn’t make. Jokes about rape, abduction, physical assault or murder are off the table. Period. Too many women have experienced physical or sexual threats and violence for you to jokingly suggest that you might kidnap or rape her." (Dr. Nerdlove, Watch Your Fucking Language)

"Now, it’s possible you may also be socially awkward, or have trouble reading other people’s emotions or intentions, or whatever. This is your own problem to solve, not anyone else’s. It is not an excuse or justification to creep on other people." (John Scalzi)

"Acknowledge that other people do not exist just for your amusement/interest/desire/use." (John Scalzi)

" If you can’t make a conversation without trying to shoehorn suggestive or sexually-related topics into the mix, then you know what? You can’t make conversation." (John Scalzi)

This is mostly directed at guys creeping on girls, but it works with ANY gender combination. Get your actual shit together.

Sometimes we have a morbid sense of humour at work.

Lillith
Lars bent his corpulent frame in two, heaving and straining, reaching for the stray daisy that had fallen from Mrs. Purell's Corpse. It would be the perfect thing to press into his memory book of corpse flesh.

As his fingertips scrabbled at the daisy's wilting petals, Lars "Tubby" Putricalanous felt an alarming, grinding POP somewhere behind his guts. He froze in place, afraid to move. He tried to remember if he'd swallowed anything he shouldn't have.

Lillith
"Shit," he wheezed, "was that me?"
He stood there panting for a while, waiting in quivering horror for the sound and sensation to repeat itself.
2:19 PM

me
After several seconds, he shifted his weight in preparation to grasp the sad blossom on the floor, determined to add it to his collection. And he shrieked in a crescendo of pain.

He fainted like a days-old-daisy and collapsed to the floor in a sullen thud of flesh, whimpering all the while.


Lillith
"LARS?" warbled his supervisor, Reverend Limoncello the Third, in his wheezy, sing-song way. "LARS, DON'T BE MOLESTIN THAT CORPSE IN THERE AGAIN, YOU HEAR."

So there's been this little back-and-forth bitch session between Corey Taylor, he of mediocre masked Slipnot and of Stone Sour fame, and Chad Kroeger, he of Nickelback fame. The media is eating it up.

Back in 2002, Corey Taylor related this epic whinge about Nickelback:

"MTV won't fucking touch us, radio barely fucking touches us and here comes those fucking pretty boys... and the lead singer looks like Shaggy from Scooby Doo... and what the fuck am I supposed to do? Am I not supposed to feel bitter when I have broken bones and fucking torn corneas?"

Fast foward 15 years, when a personality with Metal Covenant re-opened that can of worms by suggesting, in an interview with that lead singer who looks like Shaggy from Scooby Doo, that Taylor had called writing a hit song easy.

I do think Chad was justified in his reply: They had to put on masks and jump around. How good can your music be if you’ve gotta beat each other up onstage, throw up in your own mask every night? Music shouldn’t come with a gimmick."

Nickelback writes great songs that millions of people love, and they've been rewarded with great album/ headline tour sales for years. They don't need a gimmick to sell their shit. MTV loved them. Radio loved them. Millions of fans love them all over the world. (I'm an unabashed fan, so yeah -- there's my bias.)

Corey Taylor responded with “This is what I would say [to him]: You can run your mouth all you want. All I know is I’ve been voted Sexiest Dude In Rock wearing a mask. You’ve been voted Ugliest Dude In Rock twice without one. Stick that up your ass.”

So for Corey Taylor, the important bit is clearly the image. Or who's sexier. LOL. Not the music, not the songwriting prowess, not the riffs, certainly not album sales and/or tour numbers. This is telling.

On image and Chad Kroeger being voted ugliest rock star? Spike had this to say about Chad in 2008, when he made their The Top 7 Ugliest Rock Frontmen list: "The fact that this band has sold over 25 million records worldwide is beyond me. How can you be so untalented and so dorky-lookin’ at the same time? I refuse to believe that chicks find that haircut attractive."

This sounds like sour grapes, to me. Spike's writers could have just said, ""I refuse to believe that chicks would find a creative / talented / Canadian / tall / bleach-blonde / high-school-dropout guy attractive! They should find ME attractive instead!"

Keep in mind, Spike's target audience is men 18-49 years old. Corey Taylor is in this age group. This may also be his personal target audience.

As for Corey Taylor being deemed sexiest rock star? I'm not sure achieving #3 on Loudwire's 12 Fabulous Rock Stars in Drag list really counts as "Sexiest Dude in Rock." (see http://loudwire.com/rock-stars-in-drag/)
