Back in November, we got 15 minutes of fame for Justin Lookadoo, a motivational speaker and self-proclaimed "dating expert" who gives high school kids words of wisdom like this:  

"Every new sexual experience when you are not married puts another ding, another scratch, another scar on who you are. You keep running your car into other people, and then you wonder why no one treats you special."  
He got thoroughly schooled by the students at a Texas high school, who took to Twitter to mock him mercilessly.  He's back in the headlines, and I imagine he's even less happy about it this time.

Justin Lookadoo became briefly notorious after the November school assembly, which brought some attention to his books on being "dateable," and his website, RUdateable. Here of a few of his gems:

Dateable guys aren't tamed. They don't live by the rules of the opposite sex.

Dateable guys know they aren't as sensitive as girls and that's okay.

A dateable girl knows when to shut up.

If you dress like a flesh buffet, don't be surprised when he treats you like a piece of meat.

A Dateable girl isn't Miss Independent.

If you go too tight, too short, or too low-cut, you are no longer a person to get to know but an object to use.

A student who attended the assembly was moved to write an excellent article after Lookadoo the "dating expert" offered these quotes:
"Ladies, I'm going to say this in the nicest way possible....you are the most horrible, awful, vindictive creatures this planet has ever seen."

"There are some major differences between girls and guys. You see, when I get elevated in life, when I start getting better places in life, I'm going to tell all my boys how to get up here...Girls, you start getting elevated in life, you start getting better in life, you spend the rest of your life trying to kick every other girl down."

The teens fought back with the hashtag #lookadouche:
I see, so I'm single because I gab? This makes sense. I'll just find a virgin, noncommunicative, conquerer.

Also make sure you cover up so he doesn't treat you like "meat". As a guy, I'm offended.

shuffles back to the kitchen:: hey, anyone seen my shoes? Oh, nvmnd. Don't need em to cook muffins.

Guys- mayday!! Justin Lookadoo says I'm "dateless" & romantically hopeless. Do you think I should tell my partner of 5+ years??

This week, we learned that Lookadoo left out an important rule:  don't miss one of your scheduled speaking engagements because you're busy being arrested for public intoxication.  Or as one tweeter put it:  "Dateable guys know that Axe Body Spray won't disguise vomit all over your clothes"

From Angie in WA State:

This comment by RFK Lives in this diary: No Celebrating Here by scribe.

The comment is self-explanatory. I only wish we could require that each member of Congress and the President read it. DAILY.

Thanks TC Team,

From  your humble (if antisocial) diarist:
Flagged by TrueBlueMajority, this comment by praying manatheist hits a bullseye in lao hong han's diary "My grandparents came here legally" Oh yeah?  I call bullshit.

High unitas warns of the strange side effects of reading diaries claiming a "war on straight white men."  Found in last night's Kitchen Table Kibitzing by Sara R.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
