Common Rebuttal: “If you don’t like it, you should leave”
That’s the usual response from Vancouverites to newcomers who complain. It’s almost never:
"I will show you that it’s not shit"
"I’m sorry you feel that way. What can I do to change that."
The whole go-back-where-you-came-from attitude is a colonialist settler mentality that fails to recognize that the newcomers have a right to express dissatisfaction at how they are treated by others.
To be truthful most people get mad about having their city called a piece of shit because they feel like they are stuck there.
Rape is the only crime on the books for which arguing that the temptation to commit it was too clear and obvious to resist is treated as a defence. For every other crime, we call that a confession.

straight boys think girls can’t take compliments, and that’s ridiculous cause i’ve seen so many girls compliment each other, i’ve seen conversations & friendships blossom from girls complimenting each other in line, on the street, at school waiting for the bus, pretty much anywhere.
the problem is straight boys think sexual harassment & assault are compliments.
