Kindness and decency are oftentimes mistaken for flirtation. Yes, it has come to that. Where basic human interaction is viewed as a means towards sex. Or a form of it. A hello, asking for the time or directions or a quick glance in someone’s direction solicits unwarranted advances. You’re obliged to say yes. Otherwise, you’re an uptight bitch who doesn’t know what’s good for her (and needs to be shown). You’re sending mixed signals. Blurring the lines. Playing hard to get.
