I am so evil

Earlier today, I was playing chess online with this guy from Egypt. At the beginning of the game, he asked me where I was from, how old I was, and whether I was a man or a woman. I told him that I live in the USA, but did not respond to his inquiries about my age or gender.

The game went on for a while. At first, it was an even game, but I slowly gained the upper hand, and it eventually became abundantly clear that I was winning; I had 4 or 5 extra pawns, and there was no way he could stop one of them from becoming a queen.

It was at this point that I finally told him I was a woman. Why did I catfish him? I dunno, maybe I wanted to see if he would ask for my number or something. Actually, on a more evil note, I wanted to see (not that I could actually see the expression on his face) how he would feel about being beaten by a woman. Believe it or not, misogyny in chess is actually a thing.

He then asked me for my age. I lied again, and told him I was 13. If he had then asked me for my number, I would politely tell him that my father would not allow me to give guys my number, and maybe also out him as a potential pedophile.

But he didn't take the bait. Or maybe he's just an average respectable guy who believed that he just got beat at chess by a 13-year-old girl. Not that that's impossible: As I mentioned in my previous post, many kids are scary good at chess. Anyway, he played a few more moves. Then one of my pawns underwent a sex change and became a queen. Seeing the hopelessness of his position, he gracefully resigned the game.

So what was I trying to accomplish by catfishing a (probably) innocent Egyptian guy? Nothing really. The whole thing was just an ego trip. As I said, I'm evil.
