In January last year, Sarah Hagi released the following words into the Twittersphere: God give me the strength of a mediocre white dude. Unsurprisingly, this resonated with a wide range of women from all around the world. We have all, at one stage or another, received attention from a mediocre white male (solicited or otherwise) that has seemed, to us, extraordinarily brash and overconfident. Such attention, depending on the way in which it is framed, may be met with disgust, contempt, or a combination of the two. Lately, I have been finding it increasingly difficult to communicate such emotions in a polite but firm manner.
