Chattin' With a Chaser, Sort Of
Regular readers will remember the "Chattin' With a Chaser" series, of which there are currently four parts. I've just tagged them under "chaser chat" on both Dreamwidth and Livejournal, so they're easy to find. The way they work is I hang around on an IRC server, mostly to talk to various friends. One of the channels I sit in is a chat room for trans people. This sometimes attracts some people who seem to be not especially bright, and apparently believe everything they see in downloaded porn. As a result, they seem to think that popping up on a random IRC channel which may contain trans people and introducing themselves with, "hii r u shemale" (actual introduction from someone just yesterday) is going to yield some kind of productive result, rather than getting them a) kickbanned and b) mocked.

Anyway, today's didn't even bother with introductions in channel, he just looked at the list of names and started private messaging directly. This isn't officially part 5, because it never went far enough to get much comic material from, but I think it's worth posting here as an enlightening demonstration of what some horny young(?) men feel is an appropriate way to approach women in cyberspace. Remember, the log below is our entire interaction - I hadn't left any "bait" or anything to entice this guy to talk to me - I was sitting in the living room talking to the_local_echo when the iMac makes its "a new person has sent you a private message" noise. Here's what transpired:

[17:50] kneel: hi how are u
[17:50] sarahlizzy: Hi.
[17:50] sarahlizzy: I'm OK thanks. How are you?
[17:51] kneel: i am a guy with a fetish for feet have u ever had your feet kissed
[17:51] sarahlizzy: Not that I recall.
[17:51] sarahlizzy: Have we met?
[17:52] kneel: no first time here
[17:52] sarahlizzy: OK. It just seemed like a bit of a strange opener, is all
[17:53] kneel: do u wear heels and nylons
[17:53] sarahlizzy: Rarely
[17:54] kneel: what kind of shoes do u wear
[17:54] sarahlizzy: Well, today I was wearing a pair of men's leather hiking shoes
[17:54] sarahlizzy: What kind do you wear?
[17:55] kneel disconnected from the server.


It's a shame he didn't stick around long enough to hear about how I'm prone to outbreaks of athlete's foot.

Heh!

These are very practical for November, and go well with jeans. With a skirt, I tend to go for long wool socks and leather boots with a small heel, but I wasn't going to tell him that.

"very practical for November"

Given the amount of standing water that we get around Swansea during the Autumn and Winter ...or any other time it rains :P , I've practically worn *only* walking boots for the last few years, since anything else just leaks.

I know that one usually thinks of foot fetishes as mainly involving heels and stockings, but there are definitely people out there (and it's almost always men) who have a thing for feet (almost always female feet) in woolly socks.

I'm in a number of knitting communities, and every so often you'll get someone who wonders why the picture of her modelling her new socks has been viewed so many times on Flickr while the shawls and hats and jumpers get no love at all. The reactions, once the reason has been delicately explained, are classic.

Though the tune, "these boots are made for walking" does come to mind.

Perhaps I missed a trick. Perhaps I could have sold him some toenail clippings or something?

I seem to be getting scads of dudes from some specific swingers site. I am not now nor have I ever been a swinger. It's very odd. I'm not sure where they're getting my username.

Perhaps they're confusing some other TrinityVA with me?

Snerk :o)

He'd have LOVED the Hi Tec composite walking boots I've been living in for the past few days..............

'Nylons'? what time warp is this character living in. The set of 'Grease' perhaps?

This kind of thing really gives me the urge to hang around in those channels with a woman's name....

Good grief, I really don't understand some people. Hiking footwear is great! My hiking boots are specially modified women's Meindl Borneo boots that were altered to be narrower at the heel and wider at the toe.

Wow. I'm wearing a pair of Salomon walking shoes. The comfort and build quality I have found to be second to none. But then there's also being a size 12; I haven't got the faintest clue where to begin looking for women's shoes in that size ^_^;;;

I actually once knew a cute little punk rock guy who had a thing for girls in 8-hole or 10-hole Doc Martens (nothing taller) and torn tights. He also knew how odd he was in the realm of guys with a thing for shoes.
