I think your rewrite is going to make a lot of us feel better, after spending the better part of the day rolling our eyes out of our fucking skulls at his idiotic article.
“What you want doesn’t take precedence over all else, fella.”
Good grief what I wouldn’t give, for Dan and his ilk to grasp this fucking concept. But then, his Twitter feed is full of articles on how to stalk your ex-girlfriend into giving you another chance, or stop her from leaving you in the first place, so I’m not holding my breath on that one.
“ Controlling an interaction with a woman is about bossing her around, being arrogant and too assertive. But in a quiet, psychopathic way you think she’s not going to notice, which makes all the difference. You assume the role of the man whatever the fuck that is or means.”
This part in the original article set my teeth on edge more than anything else. The arrogance and ignorance in it was palpable. Thank you for rewording it so eloquently. :D
