... is where the privilege kicks in a bit. That she is attractive and that (unbeknownst to her) you have the best of intentions, doesn't mean that you are entitled to a conversation with her. But that wasn't the point I was making anyway.
The point I was making was that much of what you're saying seems to be based on this idea that if we completely remove the option of meeting women randomly on the street, the only other medium through which men and women can meet is on the internet. I got that from these statements:
"- You/We generally all agree that women should NOT chase after men. That doing so will likely end up in a man that doesn't truly take that woman (or those women) seriously.
- A dude is lame if his entire dating life revolves around women he can pick up via the internet
- You don't want a dude to even respectfully approach you in public if he notices you in passing."
My point is, there are plenty of places to meet women, besides the street. Even if we somehow took the extreme measure of deciding, as a people, that it was no longer acceptable for strangers to talk on the street, you'd probably still be able to find someone to spend your life with, if that's what you decided you wanted.
I feel you, but I think a pretty fair argument can be made that besides a street corner, there are plenty of other opportunities and environments for men and women to interact, where expressing interest is more a bit more apropos.
