250. I don't understand the connection
My own decision to post photos of myself or not post photos of myself in a forum has nothing to do with my reaction to confrontational behavior by men I don't even know demanding that I tell them what I find attractive or unattractive in men.

If some stranger comes up to me and tries to make me eat half his pastrami sandwich, I'd say no. Maybe I'm a vegetarian, maybe I don't like to eat food from strangers, maybe I'm not hungry. It's not his business - even if he WANTS to know the reason, my attitude is get away from me. Why am I obligated to continue a conversation I didn't ask to be in in the first place?

Your post is like if I told somebody about that, and their reaction was "I find this odd coming from someone who posted a photo of themselves eating ice cream - and then a different photo eating popcorn. Given your penchant for eating, I find this disingenuous."
