Did you think I was exaggerating when I said that about half the ads for rental homes in Seattle, discriminate against men? Because I wasn't. Here's another one:
@davidpgil Well there's physically destructive and then there's other kinds. I think when you take all kinds of destructiveness into account the picture shifts considerably. When you also take into account the fact that women do sneaky violence, men do upfront violence, it shifts more.
That's strange, back in my renting days, there was this very real perception among landlords that single men were better tenants. I had a female landlord tell me this, specifically, once.
The belief seemed to be that men were cleaner (!), and prone to less drama. I can't imagine either perception is accurate, but that's what I was told back then, by more than one landlord.
I wonder what changed?
I don't think I understand, but it seems mysterious, nonetheless.
Well, I haven't noticed anything like that, but if you're looking for an apartment, I do wish you luck: it's never been easy, no matter what.
