Why do guys call girls "babe" then when we correct them (for example) "No, you don't grt to call me that. I'm not your babe" because we either have a boyfriend, or are just not interested, or some other reason. Why do they start insulting us like (for example) "Wow, someone got butthurt. I was just trying to be nice" Srsly? Calling someone babe is not "just being nice" it's flirting, and even when I try to let someone down gently, I still get this crap. Why do guys do that?
