Anne Victoria Clark Devises “The Rock Test” To Teach Men How To Treat Women
Writer Anne Victoria Clark has a simple life hack for figuring out how to treat women in a professional context: pretend that they’re The Rock.
If you’re the kind of dick who doesn’t understand interpersonal boundaries or respect women as complete individuals, maybe imagining them as a buff man will help?
I went ahead & broke it down into terms even those trapped in the most toxic of masculinity prisons can grasp: https://t.co/ff7PJNB6Ez

It’s, uh…. sad and pathetic that men need to be tricked into treating women like human beings, but if it works, it works.
Cute, but it makes me sad that men need to envision a muscly dude in order to see a human being who deserves respect https://t.co/TadShSRXYy

Well, The Rock approves. But then, he would, wouldn’t he?
The. Best. When you're thinking of a female colleague as a piece of meat, do "The Rock Test." Because The Rock is too busy for your BS. https://t.co/0dBhIMBPdn

This is literally the best piece I have read aloud to my wife in at least a year. https://t.co/smMoF8v5Tn

Welp, people seem to like it, anyway. The Harry Potter lady likes it. I guess it is a pretty good rule of thumb. And, yes, I am currently imagining myself as The Rock, just to see if it works as a confidence booster.
It…kind of does.
So yeah, give it a try. Spread the word. Couldn’t hurt, right?
Unlike the Rock. He could hurt you.
