I got A-LOT of mail on my mysocalledlesbianlife email. Some are rather nice and very cute, and It is often quite noticeable to see if someone just read 20 blog posts and decided to write me because they felt that they knew me and seriously want
demand a date, or those who in a fit about a blog post smash the keyboard keys further down into the laptop, while they in a rage wrote to me.
I also get an amazing amount of spam mails too. You know those from a long lost and very rich uncle who need you to send him money so he can send you a gazillion fantasy dollars?
Oh and also quite a lot of sexist spam mails.
Yes I call it sexist because they presume that I am a guy with something so small that I need an extension – I am really not, and don’t need to extend anything.
I don’t need a truckload of blueish colored pills either.
But why don’t spammers send me mails about magic super absorbent pads and advice on how to get how to get period stains of whatever that is now stained?
I could even understand spam about implants too. Well in a way.
Spam mails about makeup, next years fashion or how to outrageously redecorate my apartment would be welcomed too.
I mean these, or any other, who at least were targeted my gender I could get tempted to click on. But spam mails that don’t believe that women own an email account or computer and therefore is not worthy of properly targeted spam mails?
No they don’t deserve my attention
So yes, spam mail is sexists.
Don’t they know how much money women spend on online shopping and that we pretty much rule the internet now?
Then I also get emails from a certain other fan base who also follows my blog for some odd reason.
Guys who really don’t like me and my sexuality, and simply need to inform me about it.
Like the one I got today from “Mr. Tan”, who even had the guts to email me from his firms email account and among other wrote the following:
“You are lesbian because your writing is so long-winded that we can’t stand you. Write shorter and shut up. Then we will like you and you can find a man to marry. Why do you think more (Singaporean men) marry PRCs(Chinese women) instead of Singaporeans?” and he continued on and on in a similar rage, and then signed himself as Mr. Tan with several exclamation marks afterwards.
One look at the email header, and I could see his full name.
Actually, kudos to him for writing from his work email so I could see that he is working at IDA. You know the same IDA who buy spy software to hack into people’s phones, emails and social media accounts, among other.
Usually when I get hate mail, people tend to write me from an anonymous Gmail or Yahoo account named Ah Beng or something similar, so you know that you are about to get a bucket of vile served.
