A woman has just posted a status about her experiences as a woman on Facebook. Should you throw your two cents into the mix or just shut your fucking hole?
Take this simple quiz:
Are you a registered expert in the subject she’s made a status about?
A) Yes, I know loads about what she’s talking about, substantially more than she does. It is worth her, and everybody else on her timeline, hearing my opinion.
B) No, I’m just a regular guy.
Do you genuinely think she’d benefit from hearing what you have to say?
A) Yes, I genuinely believe my words will make an impact and perhaps even sway her opinion a little bit or at least give her something to think about.
B) No, I just really want to say it.
Has sharing your opinion on a similar status in the past gone well for you?
A) Oh, absolutely, loads of other people liked it. Interestingly those people were all men. Probably pleased I finally voiced what everyone was thinking.
B) No, but maybe this time will be different.
Mostly As) Don’t comment on that status.
Mostly Bs) Don’t comment on that status and delete your account.
