    Read this short story and give your reaction

    It's called "Cat Person": https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2.../11/cat-person

    It's from December 2017, and went viral, but I read it yesterday for the first time.

    It will take you about 10 minutes to read.

    It is notable due to the various, vastly different reactions to it, especially between men and women.

    Read it and post your true reaction/feelings regarding the story.

    BTW, it is fiction, so none of the events in the story ever occurred, nor are the characters real people.

    I will post my reaction later.

    What strong opinions are there to have? Nobody here is really the bad guy. Robert comes off like kind of an asshole at first, but you soon learn that he's just insecure. You could criticize Margot for stringing him along, but it's understandable to feel too awkward after a certain point.

    Both of them are complicating everything by being nervous, deflecting with jokes, making wild assumptions and not being direct. About halfway through the story you just feel awful for both of them. The whole thing is kinda sad.

    Really?

    I donít know where that would come from. That she drank a bit much?

    Zap pretty much nailed it. Heís an awkward nerd and her telling everyone and making a big production out of something she initiated makes her kind of a bitch.

    She's young and stupid the way young people are. Her retelling the story has her at her best light and he at his worst. People tend to do that to shift focus from their actions. It's easier to come out a hero that way. Also why it's actually hard to know what happened even if you hear both sides of "he said, she said" stories".

    Oh and for a 10 minute story that took ages. Slight possibility that i'm not in the target demographic.

    I quit after ten minutes when I checked and realized I had another 20 to go.

    Did he fuck her?
