It depends heavily on the dangerhair concentration in your location and age group. If you're a younger student at a really liberal university, you're going to run into the situation that Fat Pikachu described. If you're 35+ and/or in a traditionally conservative area, you're not going to have these problems. The problem I've sort of seen is that people aren't dropping the "hostile towards dating" attitude after they get older and leave the places where it's more common, so it spreads to other parts of the country.I hear people say this stuff about "if you try to date someone you'll get called a rapist" shit constantly, but I have never experienced it to be true.
I think there are two possible explanations: these whiners are either hitting on dangerhairs, or are just pussies trying to justify their unwillingness to expose themselves to rejection with fairy stories of rampant sjwism in real life.
