I have recently developed an issue with the term “friendzone.”
If you check out the term “friendzone” on Urban Dictionary this is what it tells us:
What you attain after you fail to impress a woman you’re attracted to. Usually initiated by the woman saying, “You’re such a good friend”. Usually associated with long days of suffering and watching your love interest hop from one bad relationship to another. Verb tense is “Friend-ed”.
“I spent all that money on a date, just to find out she put me in the Friend Zone(said with eerie echo).”
“You know that hot girl I’ve been talking to? She just Friend-ed me.”
To me, this term seems to imply that a foolish woman has unfairly shoved a really sweet guy into a box labelled “we will never have sex.” It sets this “friendzone” up as a place where men are cruelly sent by heartless bitches who will never grant them access to what is inside their knickers.
How dare she?!
Surely by “friendzoning” a guy, a woman is doing nothing more than exercising her basic right to decide for herself who she has sex with.
The term seems to stem from the outrage experienced by men because a woman has had the sheer audacity to not find them attractive. The more I think about the fact this has now been given a name, the more ludicrous it seems to become.
Men do not have the right to fuck every single woman that they find attractive. Under no circumstances should women be made to feel guilty or shamed because they do not want someone’s penis inside them.
The entire existence of this imaginary place we have labelled as the “friendzone” is ridiculous and basically implies that men and women cannot be friends. Why? Well, if you are simply tolerating a friendship with a woman because you hope it will eventually result in sex with her then, I hate to break it to you, but that actually means you’re not her friend at all. It simply means you’re a douche.
