A Hate Crime in Tennessee

Posted on | June 5, 2019 | 2 Comments


Bailey Cantrell is a lesbian.


In case you don’t know what that word means, it is a synonym for “no.” If you are a guy trying to pick up girls, and a girl tells you she is a lesbian, that is the most emphatic “no” possible, as I have explained previously.

Common courtesy — the basis of civilized society — requires that men must accept romantic rejection with gracious equanimity. If a man attempts to engage a woman’s interest and she indicates by word or gesture that she does not reciprocate his feelings, he should apologize for his presumption and move along. She owes him no explanation, and it is rude for him to ask for an explanation or otherwise to make himself a nuisance by his continued unwanted presence. When a woman tells a man “no,” what she wants is for him to go away and leave her alone.

We need not justify such courtesy as a matter of chivalrous deference, when it can be better understood as a matter of male self-interest. A man who persists in a romantic pursuit that is hopeless is wasting his time and impairing his reputation. Such behavior — pestering a girl with unwanted attention — is evidence of poor judgment. Only a fool would need to be told “no” more than once. Guys, understand this: Women talk. When word gets around that you have made a nuisance of yourself by bothering a girl who has made clear her lack of interest, you will soon find that you are persona non grata with all her friends, completely ostracized.

If a man has any sense of his own personal dignity, of course, he will naturally feel insulted by her rejection. By approaching her and expressing his interest, he was acting on the belief that he was a worthy suitor, and that she would be grateful for his attention to her. By rejecting him, not only does she implicitly pronounce him unworthy — inferior, and therefore undesirable as a romantic companion — but she also exposes him as a fool, for he had so overestimated himself as to imagine she would welcome his attention. It takes tremendous psychological strength for a man to cope with this kind of insult, but without such mental toughness, it would be impossible for him ever to approach any woman, because there is always the risk of rejection. After some years of experience, I think most men reach the same resolve that I long ago made about such matters: She will never get a second chance to tell me “no.”

Sweetheart, I may be stupid, but I’m not too dumb to take a hint. If a woman told me “no” once, she could be sure I wouldn’t ask twice. It is the height of arrogance for a woman to expect a man to continue the pursuit after she’s turned him down once, as if she were the only woman in the world and he had no other options. Sometimes, I’d encounter a woman who thought she could play games like this, expecting me to keep chasing her after she said “no,” and such women seemed to have their feelings hurt when I refused to play along. If you want to play games, go play somewhere else, but you can’t play with me — that was my attitude back in the day, at any rate, but I digress . . .


Bailey Cantrell is a lesbian, as I say, and last year she had the misfortune of meeting a fool who didn’t know how to take “no” for an answer:

According to a report from Metro Nashville Police, a man approached Cantrell while she was on the phone and asked for her phone number. Cantrell rebuffed his advances twice. The third time, she told the man she would not be interested in exchanging numbers because she identifies as a lesbian.
That’s when the man launched himself onto the hood of her car, kicked in her windshield and proceeded to drag her to the ground.
“I said I’m gay, so I’m just not interested, and that triggered him,” Cantrell said. “I do believe it was a hate crime.”
Police responded to the gas station, located at 2804 West End Avenue, shortly after the incident occurred at 12:30 a.m. on July 28. Two officers took the report, but were not able to locate the subject.
Witnesses on the scene said the man is new to the Nashville area and stays at the Rescue Mission.

Bailey Cantrell’s story was featured on Inside Edition:

“This man approached me and was asking for my phone number and, you know, calling me all these names,” Cantrell told WTVF-TV. . . .
Surveillance video from the gas station captured the man jumping onto the hood of Cantrell’s car and stomping in her windshield.
Cantrell put her car into reverse, but the man followed, continuing to attack her vehicle.
She said she tried to drive away, but couldn’t see where she was driving because of the damage.
“The only thing I was thinking while that was going on was that he might have a weapon; he might have a knife, he might have a gun, I don’t know,” Cantrell said.
Eventually, she panicked and got out of her car.
“I only reversed to knock him over, make him fall, but that didn’t work so when I got out I was getting out to grab my phone and call 911,” she said. “Also there was glass in my eye from where all that glass had hit us and I felt like I just needed to get out of the car.”
That’s when the man focused his rage on her.
Surveillance footage showed the suspect rushing toward Cantrell, grabbing her and dragging her away from the car. Cantrell managed to free herself from his grasp and the police were eventually called.
Cantrell lived minutes away from the gas station, but has chosen to move back into her parents’ home in Hendersonville, where she feels safer.
Nashville Metro Police are reportedly investigating the incident, but no arrests have been made. Cantrell said she hopes he’s caught soon.
“Since he did this and got away with it, he doesn’t have any repercussions,” she said. “He’s going to think, ‘Oh, if this girl rejected me, I can just do this to her and it’s going to be totally fine. I didn’t get caught last time.'”

Now, as Ms. Cantrell has called this a “hate crime,” why didn’t Nashville police make the investigation a top priority? Watch the video and see if you can’t guess why they never caught the perp:


Probably not a Trump voter, if you catch my drift. Just another case of violence against women that feminists won’t notice, for some reason.
