Women share the horrible ways men have responded to rejection in a viral Twitter thread

No means no. It’s really as simple, easy, and straightforward as that. Yet time and time again, men can get mean, aggressive, and violent when their advances are turned down. If you want sickening proof, just head to a viral Twitter thread that features women discussing the worst ways that men have handled romantic rejection.

Last month, a student opened fire at Santa Fe High School and killed 10 people. One of the victims was Shana Fisher, a fellow student who — according to Fisher’s mom Sadie Rodriguez — had “4 months of problems” with the shooter. “He kept making advances on her and she repeatedly told him no,” Rodriguez told the LA Times. “…A week later he opens fire on everyone he didn’t like. Shana being the first one.”

It probably isn’t a coincidence that one day after this story came out, Twitter user Elizabeth M. asked women to share their worst stories about rejecting men.

“RT if you’ve have had a frightening response from a man when you’ve rebuffed, rejected, or otherwise ignored his advances,” she wrote. “If you feel comfortable enough to share your experience in the comments, I want to hear you.”
