Word Whore Thursday: Getting Hit On

I’m over at Word Whores today, talking about getting hit on. Sort of odd, really, because I think most of my stories pretty much cross the line into outright harassment, but it makes for an interesting discussion, anyway.

Since most of the experiences on the blog are from the female-getting-hit-on perspective, I’d actually be interested to hear more about it from the other side.  *Do* women hit on men just as much? Or are they just not as blatant about it? (Or did I just visit the wrong clubs in my youth?)

Actually, I sorta take that back. I do seem to remember at Romantic Times a few years ago, a couple of the cover models got groped pretty badly at times. (And maybe they did all the time and I just wasn’t paying attention.) But I do remember one incident where an older woman kept trying to stick her hands down this one guy’s pants and he finally had to pull her aside and tell her to knock it off.  But again – maybe that’s a lack of inhibition thing – alcohol, plus the venue, plus being around hot and “accessible” guys who are supposed to act like they’re interested.

Oh well. People are strange beasts, indeed.

As a heads up, I should be getting my revisions for my second book some point today, so I suspect much of this weekend will involve crying into bowls of ice cream. Expect crankiness of moderately epic proportions. >_<  (This is me saying, yes, I *know* there’s a ton of work to be done and mourning the fact that I’ll have to take a break from Dragon Age for a few weeks.)
