Slut shaming is not cool! As a psych major who took evolutionary psychology I understand why socially we evolved with this double standard, but with modern technology and sex education it’s just stupid.

I have a FB friend who posts stuff like that all the time along with sandwich jokes, kitchen jokes, complains incessantly about the “whores” who “friendzoned” him and then posted a status about how he’s lonely. I nearly fell out of my chair.

What a shit head!  

My response would be “Well that is the clearest case of a guilty conscience I’ve seen in a MINUTE.”

How about we don’t reduce women (and men) to inanimate objects? Jeez… 🙁

Wait, what? Am I reading this differently than everyone else is? What this is saying is that it’s a double standard that a guy who sleeps around is a stud, but a woman who sleeps around is a slut, and then the bottom is supposed to be sarcastic.

@Jellybones:  I hate the word “friendzoned.” Are we not allowed to have friends? Women are not machines that you put kindness coins into and sex comes out. I hate the idea that women owe you some sort of sexual reciprocity just because you were not an asshole. Ugh.

@vorpalette:  The line at the bottom reinforces the double-standard. Key=penis and Lock=vagina. Therefore, if your “lock” is opened by lots of “keys,” you’re a slut.

I actually found this funny. While I agree that the double standard is stupid, and women need to stop perpetuating the double standards themselves. It’s a stupid internet meme, not really anything to get too worked up over.

@vorpalette:  I read it like you did too. I thought it was making a point about the double standard.

@BartenderPlease:  Well, to be fair, I’ve only know one female stripper who wasn’t skanky and had all of her crap together.  On the other hand, I’ve never known a male stripper who had issues–they usually have full time jobs and just do it for a few hours to make some money.

I bartended at a strip club for awhile, so take my experience for what it’s worth.

@MrsCarnival:  I agree about men complaining about being ‘friendzoned’. But In my experience the women that ‘friendzoned’ these very same men, love to string them along. They whine to them about all their relationship problems and men, then turn around and say they are such a good guy, tell them they love them, hang all over them, until that ‘friend’ makes a move. Then they turn around and claim that they only think of them as a friend. And complain to everyone else that they can’t take the hint. 

I think if someone shows interest in you, you have to let them go as a friend. Otherwise they can misinterpret many things, and you may very well be gving them false hope with your actions.

People often can’t move on from unrequited feelings, if they remain in the person’s life.

@drummerbride:  I totally agree about being strung along…that’s not good on either side. My frustration lies with men (and women, but to a lesser extent) who think that being nice entitles them to a relationship or sex. If a platonic friendship isn’t something they can manage, then maybe they need to end the friendship and I won’t argue that point with you.

@drummerbride:  I tell my friends I love them, regardless of gender. If one of my male friends made a move on me and then called me a bitch or a whore and said I friendzoned him, I would be absolutely devastated to find out that my friendship and the relationship we built meant jack shit to him and was only as valuable as my potential to date him. I really can’t summon up any sympathy for a culture of men claiming they were friendzoned because they had to have friendships with women who didn’t want to sleep with them, you know?

I also agree that it’s terrible to be strung along but no matter what, no one owes you sexual or romantic affection.  I totally think that it’s okay to be hurt and angry, but I don’t think it’s okay to take it to facebook or other media and publicly flame this girl for not being with you, which is where I see the “friendzone” the most. What kind of recourse is she left with?
