Social Experiment Time: What Happens When A Man Compliments A Woman And She Replies 'I Know' ?

Men-

Just recently, author, social worker, and activist Feminista Jones tweeted the most brilliant way to piss off men, and it’s genius. Jones realized that every time a man compliments a woman, they're expecting her not be aware of herself. So she decided to do a little experiment on twitter and her tweets have gone viral since with tons of women sharing their own experiences.

Actually, it's not just making men angry or not.

Jones realized that every time a man compliments her and she replies with a simple, straight-faced ‘thanks’ rather than a squeaky ‘thank-you’, men get upset. Simply accepting their compliments is something they don’t expect and it pisses them off (not all men, of course).

“It’s the idea that they bestow the compliment on you, and you’re not supposed to be aware of it.”

“Generally we’re taught that we’re not supposed to compliment ourselves. When a woman does that, she needs to be humble.”

If you're ready, let's look at a few examples.

She backed up her experiment by telling her own stories.

Though it's sad, what she says is mostly true.
