Who is anyone to speak for the ways individual women and men choose play the dating game together?

To make a case, an argument, a demonstration, a plea, is not to "refuse to accept that a woman has a right to leave you." It is the opposite, as to make a case is to accept that one ought to bother making a case. This writer is degrading the sorts of acts of hope, love and optimism that make life worth living; for goodness sake, she is morally equating a romantic plea with a punch in the face. Please tell me this is a joke piece. Please tell me I'm being trolled. This is completely unhinged and hateful.

For further background, it's worth checking the comments under the Bristol Post's Facebook link to the story, in which numerous people step up and suggest that the piano player in question has exploited and damaged a string of women, and is being pursued for child support by at least one of them. "Manipulative narcissist runs true to type" would apparently have been a better headline.
