George R.R. Martin on writing women

George Stroumboulopoulos:
There's one thing that's interesting about your books. I noticed that you write women really well and really different. Where does that come from?
George R.R. Martin:
You know, I've always considered women to be people.

This drives me mad. I used to work in a bookstore, and was talking to my coworker and he just yelled out “stop flirting with me!” at this ridiculous volume and it was humiliating because
1. I wasn’t
2. I got in trouble for acting unprofessional
3. He embarrassed me in front of a line of people
4. And he only stopped insisting that I was flirting when my boyfriend (who is now my husband) said, “dude, trust me, she’s not flirting with you” to him

That asshole respected my BOYFRIEND saying I wasn’t flirting more than he respected me saying it and I was the one who was talking! The whole scene got me in trouble at work. And the most ridiculous part is we were talking about a fucking book. In a bookstore.

One time, my ex boyfriend had a crush on some girl, and said that he thought he might have “a chance” with her.

When I asked him what made him think that, he said “Well, she talks to me.”

And this is why it is so difficult to be a girl and be friends with men who are attracted to women.

Can we also add that this is why a lot of women do the resting bitch face when out in public. Cause dudes swear a glance or a smile is flirting.

Some dude was staring at me earlier and I could hear him talking to his friend about me and when he tried to get my attention, I ignores him and he was like “there’s NP need to be rude”. Because when I’m in the 100 degree weather, clearly in a hurry to get somewhere, I really want to deal with some dude flirting with me. Women are not obligated to talk to you, look at you, or even acknowledge you. You are in no way entitled to a woman’s time. If she doesn’t want to talk to you, don’t get your boxers in a bunch.
