Straight White Boys Texting: A Tumblr ode to male entitlement
With the rise of #YesAllWomen, we’ve been talking a lot about male privilege and sexual entitlement, and how we live in a world that caters to the desires of straight white men at the expense of pretty much everyone else. The apotheosis of this discussion is Straight White Boys Texting, a Tumblr that compiles the best of the worst of straight white boys asking women for sex.
So ladies, how can you tell if a Straight White Boy is texting you? Well, for starters, he’ll probably open with asking if you want to play 20 Questions…
...which nvariably devolves into an FBI-level interrogation about your sexual history.
From there, the Straight White Boy will most likely segue into a discussion of his personal fitness and grooming habits.
That is, if he doesn’t just straight-up ask you for a blow job first.
Occasionally, the Straight White Boy will open with a little bit of gendered vegetable humor.
But that’s only if he's generous enough to share with you the punchline for his own joke.

Some Straight White Boys are sensitive.
Others, not so much.
But they all share one defining trait: the ability to change the topic of any conversation to us showing them our tits.
But hey, ladies, who are we to deny them?
