Im like Tucker Max
Thats a line used all too frequently by guys as either a conversation starter, or worse, a pick-up line.
Like the guy who approached me at The Liberty the other night.
Guy: Miss Cason, Im sorry to interrupt you, but I wanted to introduce myself. Im like Tucker Max.
Apparently he doesn't have his own name.
Theres somewhat of a burden in being Tucker Maxs protégé. Not the fact that people always assume that were sleeping together because were not but I have to put up with guys who actually use that line on me. As much as I love Tucker as an author and mentor, I want a guy who is his own person and especially not my big brother-boss.
This is typically how the conversation goes:
Dude: Im like Tucker Max
Me: So you graduated Suma Cum Laude from University of Chicago and played basketball with Obama?
Me: So you got an academic scholarship to Duke Law and went on to write two bestselling books?
Me: Soooo, you pretty much just get drunk, fall down, shit on yourself and others, and then sleep with a bunch of women?
Dude: HELL YEAH!
Me: So, youre just a douchebag?
Or worse theres the Tucker posers like this one

I was at the Milwaukee Tucker Max book signing. I got to take my picture with you, which was almost as awesome as TM. I grabbed your ass, which you thought was funny once, but not twice lol. Sorry for pushing it, but I follow Mr. Maxs advice of living in a moment, and I doubt you actually remember this, a tons of guys hit on you every stop Im sure. Well, just wanted to say hi, Im a fan of yours now too! E-mail me back if youd like haha
I showed this e-mail to Tucker
His response: I dont tell people to sexually harass girls.
Tuckers philosophy may be to ask for forgiveness before permission but that does not pertain to sex.
When the guy high-fived my ass in Milwaukee, I slapped his hand and pointed my finger in his face. NO!
And no, I wasnt being funny I treated him like he deserved to be treated like a dog. Sadly, Ive been in that situation quite a few times in the past. Do guys think they can sexually harass and objectify women at their own whim? You are not permitted to trespASS. Youre not even allowed to do that in a strip club when a girl is slapping you in the face with her bare breasts.
After I so kindly disregarded his disrespect to avoid the dramatics, he proceeded to grab my ass again.
Slap my ass once, shame on you slap my ass twice, Ill slap you.
Girls dont want to be sexually harassed nor do they want a guy who pretends to be anything other than who he really is. Just like a man wants a woman who is beautiful under her make-up, a woman wants a man who has a personality under his ego and knows how to show respect.
